One guess on who was cheering in the press box.

That was Shirley Povich they heard. After all, what name is on the press box?

I'm puzzled as to why Philly writers think they have any say in the matter and why they think their opinion is relevant.

The very first rule of being a sports journalist is no cheering in the press box.

It is totally unprofessional. But who cares. It was likely Lorb and he stopped being a real journalist years ago.

The second rule of being a sports journalist is that if you are a sports journalist in Philadelphia, nobody gives two sharts about what you have to say.  They are all mindless pig-dogs anyway.

Well, the first rule in the US and Canada, anyway. Apparently in the rest of the world it's very different (and of course I also know the relevance of that is zero when we're talking about a press box in DC). But you know, given the way the national media have gone out of their way to heap scorn upon DC baseball, DC baseball fans, etc.—I mean, hell, they nag and moan that the press box is up too high, is there ANYTHING these people won't whine about?—I think just about any rational person would shrug off "cheering in the press box" in this particular situation. The media in other cities are already looking for ways to denigrate the Nationals' season.

Funny how all those tired and stupid "Natinals" jokes have stopped, BTW! Speaking of which, I always found it hypocritical how "Natinals" was apparently such a funny thing for so many years when the following never got any play. Gee, the Nationals are SO unique in having had two misspelled jerseys:

For Halloween I'm dressing up as a hypodermic needle filled with cortiszone and a sign that says "Washington Nationals MVP". IF we get to the World Series and I can get a ticket, I'll wear it to the park. IF I get drunk enough I may just join in the Presidents Race dressed as such.

I was at the game last night.

So glad I got tickets when I did. I just wanted to go to one last game before the end of the regular season and I bought seats in 311 for like 8 a piece.

After Sunday afternoon they jumped up to 30+ a piece.

I was so happy that I was at the game. Everyone in the section whipped their phones out during the final Braves out and we were all yelling 2 STRIKES than it came over the PA and everyone started cheering and jumping up and it was just flat out awesome. It was well worth the metro ride to and from the stadium.

Glad to say I went to my fair share of games this year! Hopefully I can go to plenty more next season!

But then again if we see World Series in DC...I am going.

GOOOOO NATS!
