Yankee fan here too. Nationals are one hell of a team!EBEBRATT-Ed said:
Yankee fan here. Congrats to the Nats. 95 years!
Glad the Nationals won. Astros seem very cocky...........or at least they were.
Last world series win was in 1924 when they were the Senators ?or Pilots ? or some Dead Man's team name.1
Washington Senators! Yes! They won game 7 in 1924 with hall-of-fame pitcher Walter Johnson (aka The Big Train). My high school alma mater is, in fact, Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, MD. He is buried in the Rockville cemetery just down the road from here. There were people visiting it and leaving flowers during the series for good luck. It seems to have worked.3
I grew up a Senators fan until Bob Short broke his promise and moved them to Texas where they became the Rangers. Then, we went 33 years without a MLB team in the nations capital. Unfathomable.
Last Friday night I had the privilege of taking my grandson to the first World Series game in DC. in 86 years. Something I've dreamed of all my life.
You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.2
That's awesome @Ironman , and something you and your grandson will never forget!1
Pilots were in Seattle- ISTR they became the Milwaukee Brewers. But that was before I stopped following baseball long ago, since the Orioles got as bad as they've been for the last several decades.Intplm. said:

I used to work for the Oakland A's in the late 60's as their office boy. On game days, I helped out the traveling secretary to print game stats for the press and also went down to the dugouts to get the days lineup and write them on the chalk board in the press box.
It was always exciting when the Senators came into town to see Ted Williams, their manager at the time in the dugout.
Aside: The A's were in the World Series in 1972 and the owner, Charlie Finley flew the office staff back to Cincinnati for the games there. He even gave us all World Series rings. I still have mine.8.33 lbs./gal. x 60 min./hr. x 20°ΔT = 10,000 BTU's/hourTwo btu/ per sq ft for degree difference for a slab3

I probably haven’t taken 5 selfies in my life. I just wanted one of my grandson and me at this game so he’d have it after I’m gone.Bob Boan
