It’s officially “Natitude” weekend in Washington

We’ve been talking about this for months, but that first Phillies-in-DC weekend is upon us, and so we revisit the whole idea of Phillies fans invading Nationals Park and people in Washington getting bent out of shape about it.

Back in February we learned of the Nats’ efforts to combat the invading horde.  Now, according to the Nats, it’s gone official:

An official proclamation from the mayor. Wow.

I just wonder if it ever occurred to people in Washington that if, you know, no one ever complained about all the Phillies fans that maybe this wouldn’t be that big a thing.  How many tickets have been sold to these guys simply because they know it annoys the Nats fans?

Oh well. Have fun, everyone.
