(Goodbye, ugly block font! Goodbye, interlocking "DC". Farewell, gold. The Nationals new 2011 home jersey. Photo by Dan Steinberg via Twitter.)
Put down your barf bags, NatsTown: They didn't screw it up. The ugly block letters are gone; same goes for the interlocking "DC" and beveled numbers. Gold: Gone. Same goes for the word: "Nationals", replaced by a curly W on the left breast.
And so, the Nationals new home jerseys have been revealed at a fashion show attended by the muckety mucks. Based on the early photos we've seen Tweeted so far by the best and brightest online media outlets in the DMV, the Nationals have now effectively spared themselves from another embarrassing jersey malfunction/misspelling going forward. They should be okay as long as they don't flip that curly W.
We're fine with the new home whites. Yeah, the design is sort of boring, but much better than the old model.
