Stumbling back to life

Anyone who follows this blog, both of you, have probably noticed that, well, there's not been much to follow lately. That's because there's not really been much for me to say about sports lately. I'm not quite savvy enough about baseball to speak intelligently about post-season happenings, which would mean just copying opinions from other Nat bloggers. That, combined with the fact that the Deacs are...well, I don't want to talk about the Deacs. However, with the Olympics, WBC, and the MLB regular season about to start, it's time to resurrect thurdl sports.

And what news to start it on: WE HAVE A STADIUM DEAL! I gave up on the council around 11:30, which was still more than an hour before the final vote passed 9-4, including all of the council members who got elected on an anti-stadium platform flip-flopping and voting for the stadium. Baseball hasn't officially reacted to the hard cap that was placed on spending, but I'm not sure if they have a real option to do anything but accept it. Feels very much like this is the best deal they're going to get out of DC, and it's so much a better deal than they'd get out of any other city, or if they contracted the Nats.

So, it's a good day to be a Nats fan right about now.

Coming up over the future weeks: My Olympic moments of the day, geeking out about Curling, getting worked up over the WBC, and then...opening day. Not sure if I'll be making the trip up to Shea for the season opener like I did with Philly last year. But, this blog is once again going to be alive and kicking.
