Here’s a quote from Heap in the AJC article about last night’s game: “We made some mental mistakes on the bases early . . .” We, Heap? That game had a surreal feeling to it. Things went a little too perfectly for the Nationals on the night of their new stadium’s opening and in the… Continue reading “Mistakes Were Made”
Awwww . . .
Now that was just downright heartwarming. Way to go, Huddy (and Heap).

A Wacky Races game necessarily involves extra innings, some combination of weird errors and amazing plays, and fans acting like morons. Usually, it also involves the Cubs. Like that game last year, where we hit… Continue reading Let the Wacky Races Begin!
