To commemorate the long awaited arrival of the "Take back the park" series and the inevitable arrival of (possibly fewer?) Phillies fans at Nationals Park this weekend, relive the fun of a horde of Phillies fans descending upon Nationals Park with the video above. It'll be interesting to see how the weekend attendance shakes out. But really, all we're hoping for is another series win for the Nats this weekend; Phillies fans can have the park if they want it. And does Andy Feffer get fired if his whole OurPark campaign fails miserably?
Oh, and remember the time when Phillies fans took over the NatsXtra postgame show on MASN? That was awesome. (And no, Phil Wood, they weren't chanting for you):

One of the better storylines from the first month of the 2012 MLB season was the Washington Nationals, who now have a walking headline playing right field for them.
Letting people know your Twitter handle seems to be the status quo in any field of entertainment now-a-days. So when Washington Nationals closer Drew Storen placed his Twitter handle on his glove, I was not surprised. Hey, it’s not like Storen is a household name right? I give the dude props for trying to gain
Yes, there's been some trouble spelling ''Nationals'' correctly in the past. This was no typo, though.
Above the center field scoreboard, where the team's stadium name normally appears, a temporary red banner with capital white letters proclaimed the site ''NATITUDE PARK'' for Friday night's game between Washington and the Philadelphia...

Don't look now, but the umpires just blew another call...where's Joe West when you need him?
19-year old phenom Bryce Harper is feeling mighty comfortable is is new Washington Nationals gear these days.

He’s currently batting .375 with 0 HR’s and 3 RBI and has...
The Washington Nationals needed every single out they had to end their five-game losing streak last night. It wasn’t pretty to watch, but they finally scraped one out to get back in the win column.
