Born in the DC suburbs in the 1980’s, I didn’t have a hometown team until I was in my 20’s. While I made the trip up to Camden Yards a couple times a year for Major League Baseball, I eventually began to root against the Orioles because they were playing a role in why Washington didn’t have its own baseball team. It was with that sentiment in mind that I started following the Boston Red Sox — long before it was the cool thing to do.
Now that the Washington Nationals have come to town, I have fallen in love with my hometown team. The Nationals will be the primary focus of this blog — though the Red Sox and baseball in general will also receive a lot of attention.
I also realize that baseball doesn’t happen in a vacuum, so there will occasionally be other topics mentioned as well.
