Washington Nationals message board

NatsPark;

>>"I didn't think he did things to get tossed? Seriously?
There are probably kids (teenagers/younger) that read this board. The word scrapps called the mod was totally inappropriate. He deserved what he got.
Sub email, new name gets him back on this board. That's what he did on WNFF. If he continues with wording that got him banned from both boards, he'll be gotten rid of again and again and...."

My reply;

#1
NatsPark, I actually was NOT banned from WNFF. It apparently just took them a day or two to push me through.

#2
The moderator for the Washington Nationals message board baited me by deleting several posts that I had made that were not derogatory to the club or had any profanity. That being said, he got what he wanted by getting me to blowup because of all the deletions directed towards Angelossux and myself.

 Catacony's fingerprints are ALL OVER this mess. Can't wait to return so I can micromanage each and every post he makes. Not sure how much he's payed, but you can bet he'll earn every dime when I return.

Miss you guys. :(

Hi! I'm a troublemaker!!!  :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:

I actually just love the game.

So I've gone from Professional baseball, to being a college baseball coach, to being a high school baseball coach, and in just "two years" when I retire I plan on coaching a bunch of tee-ballers two of which are my great nephews. (My two godsons boys) Clearly my most important job in baseball EVER!

Hopefully none of you will have noticed the pattern from above and will still respect what I might have to say about the game?  :roll:

Go Senators! Go Nationals!

So you are a troublemaker, a geezer  :old: and your cousin is the disreputable Scrapple from the "official"    :hysterical:  forum.  Got it.  3 strikes, and you just might fit in.     :P
welcome!

Just seeing this. Thanks for the welcome Tom.

I'm  certainly not the most savvy at navigating websites on computers.  :punch:

You could make up for it by visiting the WNFF Loft meetup on Sept 30, though.     :whistle:

Oh hey, one more thing - that's Darold Knowles on your avatar, correct?    Back in the early official forum days there was a conversation about how Nats of the 1960's would substitute teach in the offseason to supplement their meager wages.  Somebody, perhaps even your cousin  8)  recalled Knowles at a particular school.

I located him coaching baseball at a college in Florida and got an admin to query him on the subject - he confirmed that in fact he had done substitute teaching though he couldn't recall where it was.  PG county though, I'm pretty sure.  Had to be near the Quonset Hut.     :glug:

I remember you saying that and it made my day when we were informed that he smiled knowing one of his students had remembered him from teaching. Thanks again for taking the time to do that. It gave me a smile and lifetime memory.

But yes, Darold Knowles was a substitute teacher in P.G. County in the late sixties/early seventies. He also pitched in all seven games of the '73 World Series. I believe he is still the only pitcher to ever do so. I could be wrong.

 Great guy and an even better substitute teacher. We played dodgeball that day and I remember trying so hard to impress him with my throwing arm. I was in awe of him as if he were  God Almighty. :shock: What a thrill for a youngster to have a "Washington Senator" as your PE teacher if only for a day. I still remember that giddy feeling I had when I had to introduce myself to him. Too funny.

Thanks again Tom!

Wiki agrees with you.

Knowles made five starts for the world champion A's in 1973, pitching his only complete game shutout against the Boston Red Sox on August 14.[10] The A's repeated as AL champions, and faced the New York Mets in the World Series. Knowles appeared in all seven games of the World Series, pitching 6.1 innings without giving up an earned run, and earning the save in games one[11] and seven.[12] He is, to date, the only pitcher to appear in all seven games of a World Series.

Hey everyone, Mike here.  Been a long time Nats fan.  Due to some health issues with the wife I have been regulated to watching the games at home.  This year we were able to get out to two games and she had a great time.  Got the go ahead to get half season tickets. Looking forward to some great games regardless of who we get to manage the team.

Welcome MDupont.  Can't say being on here will be good for your health, but you'll meet alot of dedicated, crazy Nats fans.  Some will even have insights you'll enjoy.

As long as none of those 40 games is in October, you should enjoy yourself :)
