Of Nats and jokes

Humor is an important, sometimes crucial, salve for our daily emotional wounds. It helps take the sting out of life's little pains, and sometimes allows us to make better sense of them. With current indicators pointing to the Nats giving us a season of growing pains, perhaps we should get some preemptive jokes ready to dress those blows to our collective psyches. In that spirit, I hereby launch the Nationals Power "Great Nats Jokes" search. Submit your jokes to Image Hosted by and I'll publish them here. If you include your name, and any other pertinent info (i.e. your blog name) I'll mention that here, too. I'll even give serious consideration to awarding prizes for the best ones, such as use of my tickets for a game, or something fun from the team store, or anything else Nats-related that I think is cool and am willing to pay for :-)

I'll start things off with this variation on an old football joke:

Q: What do the Nationals and Billy Graham have in common?

A: They can both bring 30,000 people to their knees, screaming "Jesus Christ!"

Of course, the classic Washington baseball joke used to be, "Washington: first in war, first in peace, last in the American League." Just switch "American" to "National" and you are right up to date. Kind of has a bittersweet little ring to it.

If any players are reading this, I'd just like to say, "For crying out loud, what are you doing reading this blog? Why aren't you PRACTICING? Opening Day is 26 days away! Get out there and practice bunting or something!"

Remember, we kid because we love.
