I’m sure the long timers really feel the weight of flippant comments on forums.hipinion.com
For one, I don't want to be known as the guy who randomly goes around and fixes people's computers. Even though I do that.

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

correction: you are shit

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

I was wondering what President Carter's favorite team was (the Braves?) and this was the first Google result:

According to Scholastic.com his favorite "spectator sport" is baseball but it doesn't say what team he rooted for

I was rooting for Washington for some reason and I still don't know shit about this sport. I guess now I'll just root for baseball to be the winner!
