most of the fucking city are natives who have always rooted for dc baseball, some dating back to the 70s and the original nats franchise

Like I get that this is obviously blinkered because of my own social circle down here which is going to be skewed as a relatively recent transplant myself but of all of the self-professed Nats fans I know less than a handful actually had connections to this area going back more than five years. Didn’t realize being glib about that would strike such a nerve.

Very likely true. Would much rather hang out with the diehard Nats fans from the 70s.

I will always consider the Tigers my team but it feels dumb to live in the DC area, probably permanently, and not root for the home team when I have no negative baggage like division rivalries, playoff history, particularly villainous owners (I feel like the Lerners barely rate on the scale of evil American sports owners) etc. associated with them.

The good news for nats fans is that in a couple months they'll get to see the caps and the wizards also exist in the first round.

as someone who apparently lives in the area you of all people should know that there's a difference between Washington and DC and the people who live here and grew up here deal with enough shit already from ignorant morons who paint the whole city as The Fat Cats in Congress

Same here. Helps that by birthright I'm a red sox fan, so rooting for the nats just means I have an AL and and NL team. As much as it sucks that I haven't been to a sox game since I was 17, I still get to go to 15-20 games a season for a great baseball team that's in my own city, and the stadium is set up so that I can bike there and back and it's not out in the fucking boonies somewhere.

I can't believe I'm defending the fact that I support the baseball team for the city I live in. This is stupid. I was totally convinced the nats would make it to the ALCS this year. Probably completely fall on their face, but at least do that in the fucking second round. Now it's just another year of getting thiiiiiiis close to it. Goddamnit.

Nats RP have no nerve

An open letter to Gio Gonzalez
« Topic Start: Today at 12:57:42 AM »
Dear Gio,

Please, do us Nats fans a favor. The next time you feel that pit of nausea in your stomach before a playoff game that you just KNOW is going to take over your nervous system and make you the wildest pitcher since Henry Rodriguez, you need to listen to your "flight or fight" response and run the hell away. Sight unseen, abandon your life as you know it. Take your millions and run off to Costa Rica or New Zealand or some other faraway place where you can live peacefully. None of us will begrudge you. It will be better for all parties involved.

Alternatively, you can also hold out at the start of next season and demand to be traded to the San Diego Padres. They are unlikely to make the postseason anytime soon, which should suit your play style. San Diego is a pretty nice place. It's even nicknamed "America's finest city." The people of San Diego expect very little of their players. Philip "doucheface" Rivers was a local hero there. You would love your new life there.

Sincerely,
KFYM
