Sweet Nationals Victory Is Lemon-Lime Flavored

Shhh, quiet! Keep it down! I need to hear what is going on outside my tent. The coyote hunting gig has gone a bit unusual if it hasn’t already as my employer Lord Rumplefoot’s servant Chonsey is serious on some strange bend. Perhaps he took some exotic herbs he can only get in his country [...] Continue reading

Nats 8, Cardinals 6

That was one of the better atmospheres we’ve seen at Nationals Park since Stephen Strasburg made his big-league debut last June 8. Nothing could match that night, of course. But for a Tuesday evening with most public schools just… Continue reading

His loyal servant Chonsey is shoveling it to him. This gives me a little time to get some blogging done. So how bout that game last [...] Continue reading
