While news that Obama won't be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch is not really "new"s at this point, he finally did give his reasoning, "No Shark, no Barack. I won't even follow the score of any game that Bernadina is not playing in. The Shark and I go way back. I saw him play once." It's definitely not good PR for the Nationals but at least he was straight with them.
NatsFest was wildly successful yesterday. And by wildly, I mean mildly. No fewer than 4 people asked about the Shark hoods, which we explained was Bernadina's nickname. And voila, just like that, after $20 spent on tickets, $19 on food, and $6 on 2 "Shreech in a baseball egg" plushes later, 4 more people know Bernadina's nickname. Therefore, the per capita cost of spreading the Shark nickname is $11.25. Worth it?
Bryce Harper playing in the Guitar Hero tournament brings back memories of Joel Zumaya missing games in the 2006 playoffs due to a Guitar Hero related injury. He hasn't pitched the same since. Be careful Bryce...
Even kids are getting in on the Shark action (mind you, we brought them along)
