A Little Winning Goes a Long Way
I have to admit that when a friend asked why I had not posted a blog entry in the last month, I changed the topic of conversation to something much less frustrating: like the current state of our economy. Gas prices and the housing market were a whole lot less stressful to talk about than my dear old Nats. What had my Nats done for me lately? Nothing. The Nats appeared indifferent to a win and I was indifferent to the box score.
Then I realized what I had become... I was a fair weather fan, and there is nothing I hate more than a fair weather fan.
When the Nats hit their rocky patch, oh say back in May, I still supported the team. When the Nats approached the All-Star Break with not a hope in sight, I stopped going to Nats Park. Now I could say that I have a lot happening in my life right now--my home is mid-remodel and we have a baby on the way--but the truth is that I just couldn't stand to see my boys lose.
And then I went to the park last Friday night.
Suddenly their was life among the bleachers. The wait staff was smiling and I was less intrigued by the array of bugs that inhabit the stadium and more intrigued by the play on the field.
Say what you will about my fair-weather attitude and its sudden shift, but the sweep did more than boost my interest, it brought life back into a quickly deflating ballpark. Stop by when the Nats return to the District next week and see what I mean. Maybe I'll see you there.
