WSH sounds like the Sunshine Squad's view of the roster.  Or perhaps that's death WSH and the Legion of Doom.
How bout BWI so Angelos knows we have taken over.

Those who live in the area call Washington, DC:  "DC".  Those outside the area call it: "Washington". Many don't even readily recognize the name "DC".  I moved to New York a year ago, people ask me where I moved from, I now say "Washington,DC" and that has it covered.  When I first moved here I said "DC" and it confused some folks.  ("Washington", alone, does sometimes make people think of the State; "Washington, DC" doesn't.)

When I wear my old Nats DC hat people are confused generally. At least they don’t say Wisconsin like with the curly W hats.

The curly dub seems more "Walgreen's"...the old Senators hats are pretty badgery though.

The first gen fuddruckers jerseys were the best IMO, especially the away greys

I noticed that part of the uni seems to include the stars and bars. I wonder if they're going to incorporate that into unis in the future.

Pacers makes good money selling gear with that logo.

Right. But the branding should resonate locally, with fans.

The Indiana Pacers use the DC logo? I'm confused.

Pacers running. They have a couple of versions of the dc flag logo that are popular. I wish a team would buy their dc skyline logo because it’s better than anything any of the local teams use

Stars and Bars or Stars over Bars?  I've heard Stars and Bars for various version of the confederate flag, including the battle flag of Northern Virginia, but not for the DC flag.

Noted. Probably referred to as stars above bars.

As Opening Day approaches, will it be 'Walks Strikes Hits' or 'We're So Hopeless' ?..  ;)

When I am telling someone from out of town where I’m from I almost always say “DC.”  And then usually they say “Maryland or Virginia” and I have to tell them I live in the District.
If I’m talking to someone from the area I say “the District” or my actual neighborhood.

These jerseys cost $475 for the authentics.  Although T I love them, that is entirely too much. Maybe a hat.

I just looked into buying the cherry blossom unis and they are pretty much all sold out except a few odd sizes. Does anyone think they'll produce more at some point?

My son’s ex gf works for the Nats, I got a present from her this weekend-the interlocking DC hat I’ve wanted forever but was sold out when I was there last year, plus a bonus cherry blossom hat which I really didn’t think I wanted but am now completely in love with :)

I am getting use to the Cherry Blossom hats and unis but would have preferred the interlocking DC rather than WSH. I’m still looking for the gray and pink Mothers Day hat for my granddaughter. Any ideas?

I've found it interesting that, so far, they've seemed fairly restrained in which jerseys they're wearing on the field. They wore the alternate red  :w: early on in the season and haven't in quite a while. It's just been the home white, road gray and City Connect. I don't mind that at all, really, just a little surprised we haven't seen the blue "Nationals" jerseys that I think are pretty popular. I think we'll see something for the three "Patriotic Series" home games, too.

I miss the old home whites with the lone :w: on the front. The home white Nationals script are fine, but the hats are too busy.

I think having the blue tops and red tops in regular rotation would be too many uniforms. But I wouldn't mind seeing them occasionally.

I still like the City Connect uniforms.

Mark only gave the team budget for three uniforms.

Me, too. I would like to see them go all in on the :w: jerseys, especially at home. I like the hats they wear at home as a hat, but I don't like it for an on field option at all. BP or Spring Training or just for public sale is fine.

No shame. It’s going to age well with time I think.
