"...wherever they go, they have 10,000-15,000 fans."
(Willie Harris, via Nationals dot com, 6/23/2009)
Sorry: try 25,000-30,000 tonight through Thursday, Willie.
Prepare to be overrun, NatsTown.
Legions of Drunk Barbarians from Red Sox Nation at the gates, ready to descend on Nationals Park tonight. At least the Nationals finally had the good sense to kill Sweet Caroline at Nationals Park.
Meanwhile, in this morning's Boston Globe, Adam Kilgore rehashes the 2009 Nationals Nightmare, complete with fun quotes from YOUR Washington Nationals:
"It’s not fun," reliever Julian Tavarez said. "I can tell you that."
"It’s definitely not fun," outfielder Willie Harris said. "We go on the road, and the fans for that team are screaming, ‘You suck. Your whole team sucks.’ Our record sucks. We don’t suck."
It's not fun. Definitely. But just take 2 of 3, Willie; now THAT would be fun. Definitely.
