A mere few days ago it seemed as though Washington’s Wizards and Capitals would complete an unprecedented NBA-NHL Championship sweep in their respective leagues. Now I’d be happy to have either team win a game some day this week.
Thank God for the Nationals, those mighty Nationals, who put up 23 runs—yes, 23—in their victory over the New York Mets yesterday afternoon. The Nats finished April five games clear of their closest NL East opponent, thanks in part to a sparkling 10-3 record away from D.C.
Start the drumbeat for the World Series. As usual I’m way too invested already.
