I love FP but I have to post this because there has to be a limit on homerism in a blowout game. The Nationals trailed 9-1 in the top of the 3rd inning. Nats announcer FP Santangelo had some interesting super homerism to lay on the viewers...some quotes:
"Nats were down 7-0 here last year in August they came back to make it 7-6, Anthony Rendon lined out to center field, put a good at bat on em"
-FP talking about a game the Nationals LOST...not only that he called it the turning point of the season...I like how he added that it was a good at bat...an out though.
"If they score 1 run an inning from here on out and they hold the Braves it will be 9-8"
-FP talking about something very difficult to do, and also a scenario in which the Nationals still LOSE the game
"I like what I just saw right there!"
-FP applauding the Nats for high fiving Denard Span in the dugout after they cut the lead to 9-2. I guess a "morale" victory.
"That got me out of my seat!"
-FP super excited about a Bryce Harper hit that was 20 feet foul...Harper struck out on the next pitch to end the inning.
The Nats can still win this ballgame. I'm with FP and I won't give up. However, I like to remain a bit more realistic. Go NATS!

This is how Jordan Zimmermann reacted to what he thought was a double, ending his no hitter with 2 outs in the 9th inning...

Nationals fans came out in droves for the "meaningless" final few games of the 2014 Washington Nationals season. And like Nats fans often do, they came out dressed up, with clever signs, and ready to go crazy for the upcoming playoffs.
Here are some of the top scenes from this weekend's games:
Of course this little guy made it into the team photo...he is EVERYWHERE!!!!
After Jordan Zimmermann's no hitter on Sunday, Jayson Werth came up and slammed a pie into the pitcher's face. MASN sideline reporter Dan Kolko ended up getting pied as well and like a true professional went on with his interview covered in pie. However, after several minutes, and plenty of time to clean up, Kolko returned on camera pie still there. Then, Kolko showed up to the post game press conference, you guessed it, covered in pie. Here are some pics:

Of course she was!!!! She let him go to the Nats game! (or was it vice versa)
What better place to hold your wedding reception than Nats Park? That was a rhetorical question. There IS NO BETTER PLACE (In the there is no wrong pipe voice) than with baseball in the background. Just ask this couple who got married earlier in the day then showed up to the ballgame, bride still wearing her dress and groom appropriately dressed in a Jayson Werth shirsey.
Here's what the line to get into the Washington Nationals team store inside the ballpark on Saturday afternoon. People had to wait in line just to get in the store. Every 15 minutes security would try to get the line (which was moving SLOW) pumped up by having them chant "TEAM STORE" (lol). FYI, this stuff is also available online...Thats like 40 people at least.

During Thursday afternoon's ballgame against the Mets, Ian Desmond was upset about a strike two call earlier in his at bat and decided to give the umpire some guff. Check it out as Desmond tries to do a basketball blocked shot as the ump attempts to throw the baseball back to the pitchers mound between innings. LOL:
