Lessons Learned From 10 Nats Spring Trainings

It’s hard to believe the Washington Nationals are finishing up spring training this week en route to their tenth, yes, tenth Opening Day. We’ve now had a decade of baseball in Washington, and as the time has passed, there has undoubtedly been maturation both for the club itself, and for its fans. From this viewpoint, it seems to be a quick journey to where we are today. When...

The year of the bag-over-your-head Tigers

Camaraderie regardless of (insert slight difference here)

Once upon a time (we’ll say early-1990s), I was in middle school.  The President was Bill Clinton, and that was about when the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for military personnel was implemented.  That policy was recently abolished by the Obama administration, but back then, even as an adolescent, I thought it was unfair.  Why does it matter who that particular soldier...

Jered Weaver would be OK with a gay teammate

After the wildly ignorant comments of San Francisco 49ers defensive back Chris Culliver yesterday, you'll (hopefully) be pleased to know that not all professional athletes are total neanderthals.
