Days after a heart-breaking loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Washington Nationals came out to Verizon Center to support the Capitals during their home opener.
Nats players spotted at the game included Daniel Murphy, Max Scherzer, Gio Gonzalez, Ryan Zimmerman, Tanner Roark, Jose Lobaton, and Michael A. Taylor.
The Capitals are opening their season tonight after Pittsburgh takes an hour and a half to hoist some cloth thing. However, back at home the Nationals are sending out Max Scherzer to win Game 5 and send them into the NLCS where they would have a date with the Chicago Cubs.
In summary, my attention is going to divided like no other, this live blog isn’t going to have the format that you probably remember from last season because it may involve baseball activity, but it will return to normal eventually. Let’s go win multiple sports ball games by multiple runs/goals.
Go teams and go live comments.
The Washington Nationals are back in the playoffs tonight and will look to put past playoff disappointments behind them, as they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the NL Divisional Series.
Caps defenseman John Carlson, a huge Nats fan, tweeted out his support in the afternoon.
Caps fan and five-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky threw out the first pitch tonight ahead of the Nationals/Orioles game at Nats Park. The Bethesda native threw a perfect strike down the middle to Shawn Kelley. Before the game, Ledecky said she had practiced with her neighbors. It showed.
A week ago, Caps fan Katie Ledecky returned to the United States to a hero’s welcome. The legendary swimmer won four gold medals, destroyed her own world record in the 400-meter freestyle, and broke the Olympic record in the 800-meter freestyle at the Rio Olympics.
The Bethesda native returned to the DC area this weekend, spending some time at Children’s National Hospital. A few hours ago, the Nationals announced that Ledecky will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Nats/Orioles game.
This week’s series between the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals is going to stir up some of that old animosity around the DMV region. That’s fine. A little friendly ribbing is proper in sports as long as, deep down, we all know who is truly better.
I am a Baltimore Orioles fan, and this is my manifesto.
Sunday afternoon, the Washington Capitals had a group outing at Nats Park to watch the Nationals take on the Miami Marlins. Tom Wilson, Brooks Orpik, Braden Holtby, Nate Schmidt, and Karl Alzner all appeared to be in attendance with children. The Caps had a private suite.
