We Are Penn State by Maple Street Press is the only Penn State Nittany Lions football preview magazine featuring…me!
That’s right, I wrote a freelance article for the 2nd year publication. My look at the Penn State vs. Indiana game in Landover, Md. is one of the many great articles in this magazine.
“We Are Penn State 2010, edited by Mike Hubbell of BlackShoeDiaries.com, answers all these questions and more, with 128 pages of the most in-depth and entertaining Nittany Lions analysis available anywhere. From this year’s team and its prospects, to recruits and strategy, and even looks back at Penn State’s long and storied history, We Are Penn State covers the team from every angle.”
The magazine is available throughout Pennsylvania wherever college football magazines are sold, plus online
Actually, long before then, Washington’s Channel 9 was known as WDMV-TV, which stood for “the District, Maryland and Virginia.” But WDMV died long before the current vogue for “the DMV” (the call letters live on at a small AM radio station in Walkersville, Md.).
Well, this sure has been an interesting week hasn’t it? None of us thought you’d be invited to throw out the first pitch tonight and yet here you are. Capt. Morgan was supposed to make the pitch, so watch out, those pirates can be trouble.
I wanted to welcome you to our nation’s capital. We hope you like our ballpark and enjoy meeting Miguel Batista. We’re glad you’ve been a good sport about the whole “Imagine if you go to see Miss Universe, then you end up having Miss Iowa, you might get those kind of boos. But it’s okay” thing. Hopefully, Batista will be out there in a bathing suit and tiara to catch your first pitch tonight. I am sure either way, the fans of the Washington Nationals will cheer you on with great enthusiasm.
So anyway, the Nats are hosting the Philadelphia Phillies and their fans travel down here in droves. It is a long story, but in short:
YOU ARE GOING TO BE BOOED
Its them, not us. They booed Santa Claus you know. Mike Schmidt too. We think its great you are going to be here, enjoy your stay.
Scott Olsen gets his groove back, leads the Washington Nationals to a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves – The Post Resurrected Olsen revives Nats – Nats Insider
For the first time in a while, the Washington Nationals won a series, taking the first and third games of their series with the Atlanta Braves. Yesterday’s series clincher marked the return of Scott Olsen after a few months dealing with shoulder problems. The lefty pitched 6 innings, giving up 3 runs — a quality start. Olsen, coming off the DL, turned out to be the only effective member of the rotation in this series with Stephen Strasburg shut down and ¡LIVAN! ineffective.
Ian Desmond and Adam Dunn both homered — was it Dunn’s final dinger as a Nat? Dunn was knocked in by Michael Morse right before the Desmond homer in the 2nd. Desmond later scored when Wil Nieves knocked him and Morse in during the 4th inning. If GWRBI was still a stat, Nieves would have it. Dunn added an insurance run with his 24th homer in the 8th to add an insurance run.
Washington Nationals place Stephen Strasburg on 15-day disabled list – The Post Zuckerman: Strasburg Placed On 15-Day DL – CSN Washington Stephen Strasburg doesn’t seem too happy to be headed to the DL. It is the right thing to do though, it added the roster flexibility to bring up Olsen. It is retroactive to July 22, so he will probably be back on the mound around the start of the next homestand. I’d guess August 10 against the Marlins, though he could start at the Los Angeles Dodgers as early as the 7th if my math is correct. That might appeal to Strasburg, a San Diego native who missed the trip there. We shall see. I’d love to hear what Vin Scully has to say about watching Strasburg pitch.
