Bombs Bursting in Air

At first, I thought it was a bit strange that I was enjoying my two for one Egg McMuffins at the start of a Nationals game.  Now that I’ve woken up from a post-game nap and it is still not even 5 o’clock, all I have to say is God bless 11am starts and God bless America!

Twenty minutes into today’s game against the San Francisco Giants, while I was still flying high on the cheesy goodness of the Egg McMuffins, I wasn’t feeling as high on the Nats chances as they quickly fell behind 3-0 in the top of the first.  But then the bombs started flying out of Nationals Park and Edwin Jackson settled down, and the Nats roared to a 9-4 victory.  Now, the only thing left to settle on this glorious day is whether I can double-down on the nap.  Dare I?

Game ball(s):  Ryan Zimmerman.  Leaving everyone to wonder why he didn’t take the cortisone shot on Opening Day, Ryan went 2 for 5 with a homer and 3 RBIs and his third inning double missed being a home run by this much (imagine really tiny font).

Goat(s):  Madison Bumgarner and I.  After Bumgarner’s dominant one-hit shutout last time out, I have to confess that for a moment I thought he was in line for an easy win for my fantasy team.  The shower cannot be hot enough!

Bryce Harper is still only 19:  Bryce Harper.  Now that baseball has taken care of Chipper Jones, it is time to re-double the efforts to send Bryce to Kansas City.  You can help send the kid to the All-Star game by voting here.

Current Record:  47-32
