Sighted last night...Washington Heights, NYC. Me, that is. Walking in from work, red home curly W hat, and a neighbor stopped, said, "Washington Nationals?"
"Yep. Forever", I said.
"Your guys are on fire!"
"It helps to have the best pitching in baseball", I replied. He agreed.
(Note: whenever I saw the red curly W, I always thought of Bob [curses] Short. Now I think of Ryan Z, Rick Ankiel throwing strikes from the warning track, and pitchers making the opponents miss badly on fast balls and curves and sliders. To me, this year erases the betrayal of 1971.)
