Nats Cruisin’ to Sweepstakes Win

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

As unlikely as it sounds, if the Nats were to go 9-4 the rest of the way, it would still be awfully hard for any team to catch them. To see the full post and see how many games the other teams would have to lose to catch the Nats in the Race see:  Natinals Natin.

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

If there is a God, He – or She – must have created baseball to teach the vast majority of Americans to learn how to cope with year-in-year-out disappointment and still live with hope. Red Sox fans kept hope alive and eventually cast off their curse. The Cubs always have next year. And Washington has … 1924. But hope springs eternal, so we give you the Top 5 Reasons for Nats Fans to be Optimistic.

5. It can’t get worse than 2009.

Take Two

Posted by SuckaFish

Everybody and their mother has a mediocre blog by now. We’re better than that. We’ve created a network of six mediocre blogs. SWAGLESS will be the hub and will run its own content and posts from the other five. So what the hell are they? Who knows what will happen but for now SWAGLESS is where we’ll make obnoxious comments about the worlds of sports and entertainment. Here’s a quick rundown of the others:

Surrounded by ‘Skins: I’m a Cowboys fan living outside Washington, DC. I’ll post about the ‘Boys, mock the ‘Skins and their fans, and anything else happening in the league.

Route 1 to Lot 1: It’s all about the Maryland Terrapins. Everything from how much weight the Fridge has lost since last season to how much weight the Fridge will gain this season.

Natinals Natin: Counting down the years till Strasburg saves us all.

Stop Throwing Hats: Following the Washington Capitals, the two-time MVP, and the whiny bastards on every other team in the league.

The TCU Horned Blog: Perhaps the only blog based on the east coast covering TCU sports.
