The point I'm trying to make is things aren't always black and white. There are many different reasons and circumstances that end up dictating fandom. If we are looking at things black and white, and making blanket statements, ridiculous points can be taken to the nth degree (as I did to make a point).

You don't jump ship if aren't really on it to begin with. Again, a gray area.

Nothing is sweeter to me than seeing the Nats on top and the Phillies on the bottom.

Now if only the O's could stay on top and the Yanks fall to the bottom.

That was a great game last night, and a great comeback in the bottom of the 8th. Now if only we could get Jordan Zimmermann some run support, it's laughable how every time he pitches we never score any runs for him.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

I know MLB has played essentially the equivalent of one NFL game so far but it is hard not to be stoked about this Nats team. They're not even playing their top ball and have two key guys out but every game feels like a win when the rotation is so good. Barring injury to their starters it's tough to see how this team doesn't win 85-90 just by showing up and if their offense approaches respectability they're a 90+ win team.

I hope they can keep it up. If you guys ever get up/over this way, the stadium is really nice. Great food too.

I'm trying to go a game soon, it's kinda weak they are playing great ball and attendance figures are what they are. I love the stadium too, it's very nice.

I was at the home opener and it was sold out. The attendance will come schools are still in session and the season is young. If we keep playing well the nationals will become a hot ticket.

Only part that sucks is I live in dc now and it's just a traffic nightmare by the ballpark on game days lol.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

How 'bout them Astros!

Saw the highlights of the game this morning and there was NO ONE sitting behind home plate later in the game.

Bunch of bandwagon fans...I pay for a ticket and stick with my team throughout the whole trouncing. I stayed up late and watch the whole Eagles 59-28 whipping of our butts, hoping it would get better somehow. My wife could not take it and went to bed but I suffered until the clock hit 0:00.

We'll see. Bryce has started slowly at every level of pro ball so far. I'd love to see him crush it though.
