That would be an all-beef Patty, I'm sure.

King does look like he's lost weight, and he aced the Zorn question (not that it matters). Thanks for the video.

After watching the DY video, he got the Zorn question right, too (Whoop de woo :) ).

From the other thread, I loved Bob L. calling Lastings, "Blastings"

Someone else called him Thrilledge in an earlier post so now it's official. His new name is now Blastings Thrilledge.

Can't take credit for Blastings, it's a Mets blog:

They haven't renamed it despite the trade.

So long as they don't start calling him "Sweet Caroline."

I can, though!

Not because I invented it, just because I have no morals.

Going Out Gurus
Blooming Wonderful

Mark your calendars: the best time to see Washington's famous cherry blossoms will be between March 27 and April 3, according to Robert DeFeo, the chief horticulturist for the National Park Service. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival runs from March 29 to April 13, so the blossoms could open before the festival even starts this year.
In addition to the festival's highlights -- the kite festival on the Mall, fireworks over the Southwest Waterfront, a parade along Constitution Avenue on the final weekend -- there are some interesting new initiatives this year. In an attempt to alleviate the congestion around the Tidal Basin, the Park Service is partnering with Tourmobile to offer satellite parking at Hains Point. Visitors will be able to park at a number of free lots on the peninsula and take free shuttle buses up to the Jefferson Memorial. (Click for a (PDF) map.) This service will be in operation every day between 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

That's what we like about you, 506.

(I didn't exactly cite the reference properly myself ...)

Posted by: Bob L. Head | March 6, 2008 1:49 PM | Report abuse

Oh. No. He. Didn't.

We all need to blitz this Fritzboy with emails about this.

Forget about burgers. At lovely Camden Yards you can get some delicous Boogs BBQ along with some authentic Maryland Crab-Cakes. Mmmm-good eating. So come on up, bring the family, and enjoy a lovely night at the ballpark watching YOUR Baltimore Orioles.

Can someone enlighten me on what the issue is with the cherry blossom story?

Posted by: natsfan1a | March 6, 2008 1:58 PM | Report abuse

1a,
the article goes on and on about all the cool things to do between March 27 and April 13. Without a single mention of the new ballpark. The one that's supposed to have, um, cherry trees planted in it!!

Posted by: NatsNut | March 6, 2008 2:01 PM | Report abuse

I got this one:

Rule 1. Form the possessive singular of nouns with 's.

Thanks, NatsNut. I wasn't sure whether it was that or traffic issues.

Geez, get a life. There are OTHER things to do in DC than spending a few wasteful hours inside an overpriced baseball stadium.

"Mmmm-good eating"

Should be an em dash here, not a hyphen. Use hyphens for joining two words.

I am SO jealous of the guy mowing the lawn at the 1:59 camera shot.

I might be if it was a riding mower instead of a push mower. ;-)

Another must-see event is January 20, 2009.

Bob used the HYPHEN correctly.

OTOH, MSC did not use the COMMA correctly at the end of the sentence below:

Thanks for spewing the, out of no where, Leftist Hate, on a baseball blog no less.

Completely Unnecessary.

Is it to much to ask that the Liberals on this blog just stick to baseball and keep your hatred of George W. Bush to yourself's or heck, take it over to the Huffington Post where the hatred is encouraged.

I don't see any Conservatives on here slamming the Clinton's or Barack Obama. Show some class.

Please, I beg of you, stop. And let's just stick to all things Nats.

Like 505, my preference would be to reserve the partisan comments for our NL East opponents (okay, and the O's, too).
