Hello? has everybody left following the preseason game? Should we call in the counselors?

When the cafeteria is serving crap, you don't rush to get in line.

I'll get more invested and excited when the team gives me reason to.

I was thinking the exact same thing a couple of days ago. This forum has been really quiet.

Not that the team has given us much to talk about, save for KC's eternal contract situation.

That Trent Murphy loss last Thursday could end un being huge, though.

It is still baseball season. Let's go Nats!!

When the cuts have been made and the Redskins begin to play for real, I pay more attention.

Wake me up when the regular season begins....

Until then I'm just trying to deal with pre-fantasy football season.

This is a little more like Washington tradition, back when CT and I were young: it was the Nationals / Senators / Nats from April until September, then the Redskins until January. Then Bob "Shorted" us, taking the Senators to some wobegone place in Texas, and George ("Crazy George" / "George the Genius") took the 1971 Skins to the playoffs...and the town thought Redskin football 24/7/365.

Baseball is back, and the New Nats are better than any team we saw.

Note: the Post had a long reply to someone who asked about the battle as number 6 WR and number 9 OL. That sort of detail makes my eyes go blurry.

HTTR!

Hah... I see what you did there, Welch... sneaking in that foul language disguised as "Shorted"... we got rules, you know... bastage also traded away Eddie Brinkman, the best pure infielder in baseball history (Cal had the longest error free streak only because he had the advantage of a friendly score keeper... that was clearly a fieldable ball). and an excellent third baseman for a washed up pitcher with an attitude.

I just checked, I don't see the game being listed on regular tv. This is so pathetic that local channels don't think there is enough interest to broadcast the game? Now it makes sense that we saw the Ravens game via The Ravens. We wouldn't have been able to see that game either, they weren't broadcasting to us, they were broadcasting to Balitimore!

And Mrs. Cole could tell you that I am a year or two older than CT. Yes, we both started at the same elementary school, had at least one of the same teachers.

This may end up being a long depressing season.
