Who needs a pep talk (or at least a good reason to bash some subpar Yankees fans)?

October 13, 2012


If you’re looking for something blaming blown fan interference calls from years ago or foul poles for Orioles playoff losses to the Yankees, you might want to close your browser now. You won’t find that here. For any of you who saw the Orioles get knocked out of the playoffs by the Yankees Friday night […]

My favorite video so far of Jayson Werth’s Game 4 walk-off home run for the Nats

October 12, 2012


This is my favorite video so far of Jayson Werth’s NLDS Game 4 walk-off home run for the Nats. “I HIT RECORD!” is the new “GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!” (via @recordsANDradio) Related articles StubHub before and after Jayson Werth’s Game 4 walk-off home run (

StubHub before and after Jayson Werth’s Game 4 walk-off home run

October 11, 2012


Around the time the Washington Nationals’ Jayson Werth was rounding the bases after depositing a Game 4, 9th inning, walk-off home run into the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen, I checked StubHub for tickets to Game 5, which will decide who moves on to face the San Francisco Giants in the National League Championship Series. That […]

Nats look to “Take Back the Park” from Phillies selling only to local addresses

February 3, 2012


Here’s something from the D.C. Sports Bog that might be of interest to those who like to see tickets stay out of the hands of the opposing team’s fans. “…starting Friday morning at 8 a.m., the club will begin selling single-game tickets for just a single weekend series: May 4-6, against the Phillies. These tickets […]

Nats should leverage demand for a Teddy win to get something they need

June 2, 2011


It’s been almost exactly a year since I suggested the Washington Nationals should let Teddy win their Presidents Race on June 4, 2010, as a consolation prize to all the fans who’d bought tickets  to that game thinking it might be Stephen Strasburg’s major league debut. But Teddy came up short in that race, leaving […]

It’s not like you threw a D-Cell, Steinberg, right?

May 30, 2011


Washington Post writer Dan Steinberg says that seeing all the Phillies fans invade Nats park today made him “want to be a Nats fan.” He then notes he’s “supposed to be neutral and all that.” Sure, it’s generally the rule that a journalist should not show they are rooting for one team or another in […]

Jayson Werth, Cliff Lee and the Nats free agent marketing dollars

December 10, 2010


A few years ago, when I was playing more music than I am right now, I was sitting on the patio of an Austin, Texas hotel with some friends during South By Southwest. In the lot next door to this hotel, there was a large billboard. I started thinking that if I bought that billboard […]

The Washington Post and “writing in the Internet age”

November 12, 2010


Check out page D2 of today’s Washington Post and Dave Sheinin’s story “Putting a number on a theory” for a nice example of how media in print form can reference/recognize a blogger not on their staff. The article even has a sub-head of “Blogger argues that assertion regarding Dunn, Zimmerman is a bit off”. The […]

TBS Bumps Phillies-Red Sox to Air Strasburg’s Second Start

June 10, 2010


How’s this for a statement? TBS has bumped this Sunday’s Phillies-Red Sox game in order to air Stephen Strasburg’s second start. Those are two teams that have each won the World Series in recent years and that have name recognition and star power to draw viewers, whose interleague game has been pulled so that the […]

Bringing Some Dignity Back to June 4

June 3, 2010


June 4′s got to be feeling a little slighted right now. That was the day that many in the media speculated would be the major league debut of highly-touted pitching prospect Stephen Strasburg, which caused a run on tickets for the Friday night game against the Cincinnati Reds. Then the team made the official announcement […]

June 8 MLB Debut for Nationals’ Strasburg Makes Better Baseball Sense

May 26, 2010


Washington Nationals fans and the media have been speculating that 2009 #1 pick Stephen Strasburg will make his major league debut on Friday, June 4 against the Cincinnati Reds. Tickets for that date have been selling well, even before the team made any sort of official announcement on when Strasburg will pitch his first game […]

Nats Writer Mark Zuckerman & Questions on New Journalism Models

February 22, 2010


If you missed the story a few week’s back, this is just cool. Mark Zuckerman, former Nats/MLB beat writer for The Washington Times, started a blog and then a campaign to raise funds to travel to and report on Nats spring training. He set a goal of $5,000 on February 8 and surpassed that in […]

Nats ad could have been even better with direction to social media & web

November 1, 2009


The Nats had a nice full page ad in today’s Washington Post. It thanks the fans, runs down all the highlights of the 2009 season and ends by saying “We’ll see you in 2010!” I think this ad was a great idea. Baseball fans are following the World Series right now. Sports fans in D.C. […]
