IT IS OFFICIAL: WASHINGTON NATIONALS

D.C.’s Team Officially Renamed the NationalsThe Post

It is official, they are the Nationals (new and improved Web site) and have a logo and the two hat designs I posted earlier today. Everyone was wearing the red cap (see video from The Post) on the stage, so I have to wonder if the MLB Shop is incorrect in calling the blue model (I like it!) the home cap. Now, the internal debate, do I go and buy a cap with the deal not sealed? Also, there was a knucklehead from the D.C. Statehood Green Party who went up on stage uninvited and began speaking in opposition to baseball. Charlie Brotman and Harold Brazil (D, At-large) grabbed him and whisked him off stage.

A Chicago sportswriter thinks that we could see success sooner than later. We shall see.

I did not think Joe was going to hang it up this week, despite the media speculation. His post-game comments (goPSUsports.com) were a bit odd too.


FIELD GOAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Congratulations to Sam Basile, who in addition to being the WWN Maryland Bureau Chief is the champion field goal kicker. Sam iced the title, overcoming the terrible conditions (mud, wet grass, and um, victory celebration) that we all faced.
