...I think nats2playoffs would be an awesome thread starter.


I'm 0-2 this season starting Gameday threads and had a losing record last year.  I mainly started them to post the Gameday Thread Starters' W-L records, especially since some users changed their names.  

I was in Pennsylvania last week and almost fell out of my chair when someone told me that the Nationals had won 7 straight.  When I took a quick look at the WNFF I saw different users starting each game.  I KNEW it was the pursuit of a new superstition.
 :worship: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs:  :rofl:

If we lose tonight, it's because I posted in the WNFF again...  

ESPN Fantasy showed a start time of exactly 7:00 pm, but the game didn't get going until close to 7:06 pm.  The schedule on the Nationals plastic cups says it's supposed to be 7:10 pm.  ESPN LOCKED the fantasy games, preventing me from picking up any free agents from 7 pm to 7:05 pm.
 :idiot:

The person playing the organ played the theme from the Alfred Hitch**** TV show, which can be seen late on the Retro TV channel, if your cable operator carries it.

Bryce Harper special on ESPN. Bryce "My goal is to be the best player to have ever played. I want to hit .430 and make the hall of fame"...

Does anyone else think that this should be the opening day lineup next year just with Flores over Nieves? This is the lineup I like by far the most...

Mostly.  We need a different person for second at least.

It was awesome. I never knew that his father was a beast lefty pitcher who played in the Negro Leagues.
