My new approach

Today was one of those can't watch/can't listen days. Went to a retirement party for a friend/former co-worker. Caught up with a bunch of my old newspaper buddies. For his present, we gave the honoree two tix to the first two Nats-Red Sox games (he's a Red Sox fan, by the way, but I love him anyway). We had a blast.

I turned on the radio as Hanrahan was finishing up his strikeout of Markakis.

If I don't view live, watch on TV or listen on the radio, the Nats seem to do pretty well.

I was at the stadium. It was by far the most fun game this year. Getting to watch Dunn hit two mostor home runs, one a Grand Slam was worth the price of admission alone. I must say that Orioles fans are far less obnoxious than Phillies or Mets fans.

It was almost enough to make me forget that the Nats just concluded a 2-9 homestand.

Mike: I stayed away, too, and changed my luck. I went to the P-Nats game. They won 4-1.

By the way, should we be worried that Chris Marrero is still in A ball?

O's and Nats fans do share something of a bond (following the Leasts of the Easts). I don't find them to be too bad a group. Eager to see how I'm received up there in June.

I'd say no since he was hurt last year, though I would have liked to have seen him in AA anyway. How did he look?

Heck, it was just about a year ago that I saw Detwiler in A. I was impressed but didn't think he'd be where he is now. Stuff happens in a hurry.

So I should be blaming you not Acta?

MikeHarris said...

Seems that way!
I have fired myself.

What's your strategy for today?

MikeHarris said...

TV is on. My bad.

Sam said...

Did you maybe turn it off right after Sheff's "homer"?

Sam said...


I guess not.

MikeHarris said...

Actually, I did leave the room. Just came back in. Guess they didn't reverse the call.

A little late to the party, but....

I also was at the park Sunday. What a day. What an atmosphere.

I can't remember having a better time at the park this year. Even got a free beer from a friend I haven't seen in a couple years.

Grand slam + free beer + Nats win = damn good day.

And yes, the O's fans I ran into were quite pleasant. Nice change.
