Hello, Everyone. As my name hints at, I am a "Born-Again Nats Fan"....I used to be on this site WAY BACK IN THE DAY as "Nationalzfanatic88" but it's been so long (apparently since May 13, 2009, 06:49:20 PM) that I forgot the password and I no longer have the email linked with that account.
Anyhoo, I was kind of young when the Nats came to town (I was about 17) and was very excited because 2005 was also my first season watching Baseball. I was really hyped and was super excited by their 50-31 start in their first season. But as a young fan (in age and fandom), I got disheartened over the first few seasons and eventually stopped following the Nats (and watching baseball all together).
But now, I'm older, wiser and excited to be following the Nats again. I'm still learning all of the team (I still miss John Patterson and Brad Wilkerson and Nick Johnson and a host of other people...It was interesting to wikipedia where they all are)....I'm glad Zimmerman is still with the team, even though it was weird to hear him referred to as a 'veteran' of the team...because in my mind he's still the 'young rookie' lol...I've got some catching up to do.
Thanks in advance for your patience with me and I look forward to once again being an avid member of this forum
