I believe...

DISH Commercial - The Hopper: Boston (:30)


My friends and I always do that at Nats games.  I always like to say/yell out "It's the Haapa" repetatively.  Some people laugh.  Some people roll their eyes...

hard to believe this one has not been updated since 2012.  Even harder to believe who made the last post in 2012.

one story about the origin of the PUTIN!!!! meme:

Goes back to a game in 2012.  I think Big Meech threatened to put a picture of Mitt Romney up in the GDT if the Nats could not come back in a game that inning.  I think I said you have to put a picture of Putin up if we won.  The nats tied it up and the game went extras.  Big Meech said while he did not officially lose the bet, he'd roll with it and put up a picture of Putin shirtless on horseback.  We won, so we started posting pictures of Putin, the Red headed spy who posted on facebook, and started bad mouthing wussy Riot.  The next day, Big Meech started a GDT with pictures of Putin, and we won.  Since then, PUTIN!!!! has been an good luck charm for special occasions.  Here, obviously PUTIN!!!! was misused.

similar story, but better:
JCA-CrystalCity, a known Communist (with ties to Boston), is convinced that invoking Putin in GDTs increases the chances of victory. That is because Putin is a totalitarian who can order anything to happen.

N2P pretty much nailed it, oddly enough. I mean not oddly that N2P could nail it, but it's such an odd story.
A game day thread was started by BigMeech last year (IIRC).   It's theme was "Putin".     Nats won and it kind of took on a life of its own.

Thanks for bumping this.

I think the injury exaggeration in reaction to the club officially downplaying everything is a meme at this point.

Examples: Talking about Rendon needing a peg leg, planning Span's funeral when he is scratched, and referencing Monty Python's "only a flesh wound" scene.
