This is my favorite day of the year.  Well, it used to be, anyway.

Hey, for 34 straight opening days, this area had no team. At least in this instance, it's a planned pause delaying the return of the champs. Big difference

When there is no season, the Nats will get to be defending champions for two years.

Howie Kendrick plays the hero once again
homers in the tenth to lead the WORLD CHAMPION WASHINGTON NATIONALS
over the NY Mets 3-2 ( Strat O'Matic )
EDIT: quoted the wrong score: Nats actually won 4-3

Can’t believe they still have that game. Used to play that 50 years ago.

Wishing you all a safe and healthy, if not happy, Opening Day.
Nats will keep the title for two years! Second time since 1994 & 1904 series-less seasons.
Game 7 replay tonight at 6:30 on 106.7, the mellifluous voices of C&D once again.
