I feel like bustin’ loose!
This girl is ready for some postseason baseball!

My Washington Nationals are hosting the LA Dodgers today at 5:30 and tomorrow at 4:00. I’ve crossed every possible appendage for swift at-home victories. We have the ability to beat them, especially with our home field advantage as long as these boys can keep it together.
We’ve got some great ball players!
We’ve suffered the blow of losing our very own Buffalo, catcher Wilson Ramos to an ACL injury. But Lobaton and Severino are good catchers.
MVP Bryce Harper and Baseball God, Daniel Murphy are both coming off the DL…neither at quite 100%.
Rookie phenom Trea Turner is as great at the plate as he is in the outfield. Danny Espinosa has been a home run hitting machine of late.
We’ve got Werth and Zim, “Two Bag Tony” Rendon ready to go!
“Mad Max” Scherzer on the mound today.
Ain’t baseball great!?!
N!A!T!S! Nats! Nats! Nats! WOOOOO
Rain delays at Nationals Park rarely bode well for my team. They don’t like not being able to get out there when they’re ready…
I think adrenaline changes from fuel to poison in their bodies when they have to wait.
Rain delays make everybody sad.
This is what it looked like when we got to the ballpark last night.
OK. Cool. We’ve got this.
We knew it was raining.
We knew the possiblity existed that we’d be dealyed. In fact, we sat at home debating whether or not to even go. But, YBW wanted the ‘Election Night’ give away, so we decided to brave the rain.
My husband is a curious beast…but I adore him!
As we sat (undercover) and watched the rain come down, I suggested we wait till 8:00 and make a decision then.
I was rocking my lularoe leggings with my “Respect the (curly) W” tee and my Werth jersey. I didn’t wear my Zim jersey because he wasn’t playing last night. YBW teased me that just wanted to wear my red jersey because he and Thing C were wearing their white jerseys and I just wanted to be different.
Um…no, dude. Sometimes I just need to rep the Hobo!
Of course, by the time 8:00 came around, I’d just gotten a beer…I mean I had to finish it, right? And, only a moment later, it was announced that play would begin at 8:45. We decided to stay put!
The crew came out to fold up the tarp.
OK! Let’s do this!
This job fascinates me…but I’m glad it’s not my job. Those guys work their booties off!
Well, as it turns out…the rain never really stopped, it just became a fine mist and the wind picked up. So damp clothes and breezy conditions make for chilly baseball fans. The score was 4-1 in the Marlins favor and we were pretty much done.
We gave up just in time to miss Rendon hit a dinger and then Stephen Drew follow him with another one to tie the score.
Miami ended up winning 7-4.
I’m telling you, rain delays don’t bode well for my Washington Nationals.
It’s OK though, we’re the NL East champions! We’re going to play (and beat) the Dodgers to get to the Cubs (that’ll be a miracle, but we’re due one) to then get to the World Series. At least, that’s the plan. The Dodgers will be tough for us…we only beat them once in six games this season.
But I’ve got my #Natitude so I say, “Bring it!”
