Hey Jackasses, We’re Trying to Play Some Baseball Here!

I hate you.

It’s infuriating when you go to Nationals games and people try to do the wave. On Monday night, a group of out-of-towners attempted to start one and I promptly screamed¬†politely reminded them it wasn’t allowed at baseball games (check with Old Hoss, it isn’t). Jesus, is there no such thing as decorum at a ball game anymore?

Thus, you can probably guess how I felt when the Nationals used the President’s Race as a convenient PR plot to draw more attention to the team. The race itself is fine; the incessant proliferation of the race into the game recap is not. ¬†Even the players were pissed off. As Ryan Zimmerman so aptly noted:

“I am so glad Teddy won, so we can stop talking about Teddy. People get more excited for a mascot race than a game,” Zimmerman said, before adding in a voice drenched with sarcasm: “Yes, I’m excited Teddy won. I’m ecstatic.”

Ryan Zimmerman is a dude.

Maybe you didn’t notice Nats PR, but the Nationals won their 98th game today. They will finish this season with the best record in baseball and home field advantage throughout the playoffs for pretty much the first time ever. Maybe that’s just a little bit more important than some¬†dumb-ass¬†high school¬†nerd-linger¬†running around in the costume of an overrated President that’s been dead for 100 years.

Dammit, DC, I’m trying to make you legitimate here. Help a brother out.

    Agreed. Nationals Park sort of has a gimmicky feel to it, kind of like an NBA game. You would never see paid “hype-men” running up and down the aisles at Yankee Stadium or Wrigley Field.

    I think some of it has to do with the fact that they are still a young franchise still trying to build a fanbase in a transplant town. If you win on a consistent basis, this nonsense will go away.
