I moved to Richmond in 1974 to go to college and have lived in that area all my professional life. I'm 53 now and that was 35 years ago so I've lived the vast majority of my life outside the Washington area.
Yet whenever anybody asks where I'm from, I always say, "D.C."
Might change that now. Why, I'm from Richmond. A lifelong Richmonder, in fact. Never lived anywhere else.
First, while this is a baseball blog, I must ask: YOU DON'T GO FOR THE END ZONE ON FOURTH DOWN THERE? YOU REALLY THINK A RAZZLE DAZZLE IS GOING TO WORK?
My eyes switch to the other TV just in time to see the Nats give up three in the top of the 10th. This after watching Willingham and Dukes look at strike three with runners on. Great pitches. Easy calls. Swing the damn bat.
Ah, yes, it is a great day to be from RICHMOND.
