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.

These tickets […]

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 […]
