Right you are! My family has called Washington, D..C home for 5 generations. D.C. is a very special place to me. I'm kind of upset that I don't live there anymore now, but I plan on returing after or during college (If I'm accepted in a Washington college, Lord willing).

With Tatum O'Neal and Walter Matthau, yup... You'll have to forgive this slow old man, he doesn't remember every line in the movie...

Seeing that you have no nickname, I would suggest that you quickly contact The Chief (site administrator) and have him help you get a nickname. Because with your six dot nick, many will think you have something to hide., whether you do or not...

Hey guys!  I'm brand new here on the forum.  

I know you Nats fans are going to think I'm nuts for hanging out here.  I am a lifelong resident of South Holland, IL, a southern suburb of Chicago, and have been a passionately devoted fan of the White Sox all my life.  (Hence my screen name and avatar).  

But I have a special place in my heart for the Washington Nationals.  As a true, die hard Sox fan, I pull for all the teams in the National leagues when they play the Cubs.  As a devotee of baseball history, I have always had a soft spot for the teams that were always "losers" and then ceased to exist (e.g. the St. Louis Browns and both versions of the Washington Senators) and in particular, the wayward and woeful Montreal Expos.  

Last year, the first year the Nats were in business, they had a hot start at the same time as the White Sox.  My Dad asked for my predictions for the World Series, and I said that my dream match up would be the White Sox vs. the Nationals.  He laughed at both predictions.  I'm still holding out that some day in the not so distant future, my Sox will be pounding on the Washington Nationals in the post season.  

So, here I am.  I'm an American Leaguer at heart, but I wish lots of success to the Washington franchise.  Baseball belongs in our nation's capital.  Having an NL team there helps set up a two league rivalry with the Orioles that could resemble what we have in Chi-town with the Sox vs Cubs.  Its just good for baseball.

Anything I need to know about your community, being an "outsider?"  

And, by the way -- "Gough Gough Nats!"

Welcome to the forum, soxfan59!  These must be the best of times for southsiders.  I commend the Tigers for their superb first half, but think the Sox will catch them in a month or two.  It should be a great race.

I think you'll find us to be a congenial but motley cross section of Nats fans - from Washington natives such as myself, to former 'spos fans, people who liked the story and became fans just last season, folks from foreign countries, just a mish mash of baseball fans.

This ain't no baseball royalty story, we need more fans, can't afford to be too choosy.  A large number of Nats fans are from other cities, and many have other teams that are their first love.  Like you, they may root for the Nats cause they wanted a National League team to follow, and liked our story.  Whatever their background or reason for being interested, they are welcome.

This board has been perking up lately, fueled partly by excessive trolling on the MLB site, and partly cause we have a great game thread and the software itself allows for posting pictures, or other graphic images, allowing more creativity.  Plus this board is moderated to keep things reasonably civil and preclude sinister attacks.   So we have some things that are unique to this small community, hope you enjoy it.

Hi Mandy, Where did you get your Avatar (Snoopy).  I love Peanuts and Baseball.  Several Years ago they had an exhibit at the Baseball Hall of Fame on Peanuts and Baseball.  Lots of Comics and Collectibles.  Lots of Fun!

Ever see You're a Good Man Charlie Brown?  I did when I was younger and it was fantastic!
