Here we go!

Baseball '05
My friend Jeff in D.C. reports, "You wouldn't believe how jazzed and genuinely informed I am about our yet-to-hit-town Nationals." . Every team is a hopeful contender in March, (yes, even an expansion team) which is one of the beautiful things about baseball. Just ask any Chicago Cubs fan and while you're at it, ask a Red Sox fan about last year.
Baseball annually breeds optimism.

Well,
I agree to an extent, but its still the same question every spring-training: who can beat the yankees and their payroll?

Remember that Frank Robinson rookie card I gave you for your birthday years ago? I want it back. I'm re-gifting.

Where can I get a 'Frank Robinson is the manager of my new bitchen ball club right here in D.C. and I can't fucking wait' Hallmark card for Jeff. Need to find one with a pop-out hot dog.

Go Nat's.
