I’m Still Team F*ck You Bryce!

Boy this guy really gives the term “money talks and bullshit walks” a new meaning…

AwesomeCon over Baseball?

I’m currently on a metro train headed towards Navy Yard-Ballpark. The Nats have a 1:35p game against the San Diego Padres. It’s the last game of the already lost series. There are lots of people dressed in Nats gear and kids are bopping around with excitement. I should be headed there…but I’m not. I’m hopping off this train 6 stops before Navy Yard-Ballpark for Day 3 of Awesome Con!

I had a choice: go to the game or finish my 3-Day pass…absorbing myself in all things pop culture, gaming, fantasy, sci-fi, science, comics, etc.

I chose the latter…concluding I’d get more out of the experience. Plus the boyfriend is there so I’ve got that going for me.

The Nats are having a rough time and the fans are feeling it. Facebook group conversations are more negative. Cursing the Lerners, the bullpen, and Davey Martinez. Shit maybe even the Universe itself.

I love my team (Go Nats!) but no one walks into disappointment, knowingly.

Happy Sunday Folks!

Fed Up with FedEx

My issues with FedEx date back to when I first moved to DC so I don’t know why I expected anything different.

They delivered my season plan holder package today.

Yep…the one that I specifically asked to be held for PICK UP. That one. You’re probably thinking, what’s the big deal?! Am I right?

Well you see I didn’t receive a call on the callbox outside my building in order to buzz them inside. In the past, that meant the driver left my package outside…exposed to the elements and susceptible theft. Did I mention that I live in DC?

I jumped into a group text with my neighbors hoping someone was home to grab the package before the package thieves got to it or at least confirm that it was in fact safe.

Someone was home and ran downstairs to find that FedEx had actually left the package just inside the front door and even brought it upstairs to my door. Guys my neighbors really are THE best!

Whew. Crisis averted.

FedEx is still on my list though. BECAUSE. THEY. DON’T. FOLLOW. INSTRUCTIONS!


Also: The Nationals held auditions today to sing the National Anthem. If you or someone you know has what it takes…the final demo submission deadline is May 15th!

Oh FedEx.

It was supposed to be delivered this past Friday. It wasn’t. So I asked that it be held for pick up on Saturday, thinking it’d be easier to just pick it up. I arrived at the FedEx facility in NE to find that they were experiencing a power outage with no idea when the issue would be resolved. Wait…

It’s Sunday now and of course…they are closed. I’ve been avoiding Facebook group posts from others that have received their packages but I’m feeling pretty confident it’ll happen tomorrow. *fingers crossed*

You can take the guy out of DC…

My 2018 World Series Prediction

Hey!

The 2018 World Series is officially here and I’d like to go on record now:

The Los Angeles Dodgers – Game 7.

Don’t debate me.

Stay Tuned…

Now that Nationals’ fans are officially sitting at home watching October baseball…I can finally get those drafts posts published! Plus it’s never too late to throw it back 🙂

Stay tuned…

And We’re Back!

It’s been a week since my last post and sadly…nothing much had changed.

When we left off the guys got their asses handed to them in Queens the last game of the series against the Mets. They’ve been on the West Coast (cue problematic light) since last Thursday taking on the Dodgers and then the Giants.

We won the first game against the Dodgers 5-2 then lost the remaining 2 games of that series and on Monday, started a 3-game series against the Giants. And yes…we lost…and lost again. Actually we had lost 4 consecutive games at that point.

But boy did our bats come alive on Wednesday!

Yep! You read that right…we beat the Giants!! 15-2!

With that win…we sit 11-14 and 4th in the NL East.

It’s still early right?!

We’re back home now and tonight we take on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Meet me there.

Fret Not…We Might Be On Our Way!

Wow! It was just a yesterday I posted about the string of losses the Nats were being dealt. #IBackTheNats but I’m also realistic sooooo full disclosure…I had very low expectations for how my guys would fare in New York. I mean come on…the Mets swept us during our opening series at home.

Why would anyone think being in New York but work out in our favor?!

But boy are they proving me wrong! Last night, the guys took down the Mets 8-6 and beat the Mets again tonight, 5-2.

Max earned NL Player of the Week and Bryce blasted his 8th home run while breaking the barrel of his bat! BOOM!

And while the Rockies recently took that series from us…they’re small potatoes. We have #OnePursuit and the Mets are currently standing in 1st place in the NL East…aka…in our way.

The Nats are now 9-9. Still ranked 4th in the NL East but only 4 games behind. I’m still on the fence regarding whether or not “it’s still early” but this pivot change and momentum the guys seem to have feels pretty damn good!

Also, shout out to the Phillies for taking down the Braves today!

Let’s Go Nats!
