I'm Chris Hata, hence my screen name, and I've been a Nats fan ever since the Expos were announced to move to D.C. I'm SOMEWHAT of a regular on the Nats message board on the main site (with the same screen name) but I'm sick of dealing with the trolls.
I was born and raised in northern New Jersey, but I was raised to be a Redskins fan. My parents both grew up in PG county and I still have a lot of family down there. I love baseball but the football fan in me wouldn't allow me to root for a New York or Philadelphia team, so I just didn't follow baseball too much. With the Nats in D.C. I finally got a team I could root for and claim as my own.
