Take Me Out To The Ball Game!

Is anybody as excited as I am that the Washington Nationals are tied for first place in the National League East? Sure, the season hasn't officially started yet, but this is just what our city needs - more sports and spirit. While tourists graze into our home territory this weekend to celebrate the Cherry Blosson Festival, locals will have something else on their agenda: scrambling to get tickets to this season's baseball games. Could it be that a team from our hometown is actually, gasp, good?

Don't count your chickens yet - we all know there is a curse laying upon other DC sports teams. But could the Nationals be the ones to break it?

Whatever the case, DC has always been known for its loyal fans, no matter how bad the Redskins or the Wizards may be. We don't hop on other bandwagons. We stick to our teams, our town. We faithful fans have been let down on many occasions - but we will never betray our teams.

For the first time in 33 summers, baseball has once again returned to Washington. And even after those 33 dark years, the fans still exist. This summer we will have a main focus on our minds - baseball, baseball, baseball. So get out your new cap, order your tickets, grab your glove, and I'll be seeing you at RFK this summer.

I agree, I saw very few people jump on the Boston Red Sox bandwaggon last fall. Or very few yankees fans in years past. Or even people who actually jumped from the yankees to the redsox which I thought was impossible. Actually I saw all of the above this past fall. But D.C. is a mixture of people who grew up in parts all over the country and world. People bring their hometown pride to the area. It's a part of D.C. that makes D.C. what it is, a true melting pot. Hopefully, the Nationals will atleast keep the people who grew up in D.C. from constantly jumping on the lastest trend in baseball and instead stick with the home team! Only time will tell
