omg wtf nats trolling their fans.
I was in section 126 last night. I've never heard any venue louder than Nats Park was last night. I've also never herd any venue quieter than it was on our walk to the car. You could absolutely hear a pin drop.
My wife was nearly killed in a car accident back in April. She laid in a hospital bed for two months and is still struggling to walk. Ten weeks after her accident my brother killed himself. So while last night sucked, the events of this year have given me a much different perspective on sports and their importance in my life.
While I wish they could have won last night, I just thank God they had the season they did. There were days this summer that watching them was the only thing that made me smile. So thank you Nats, and I'm already looking forward to next year.
damn dude i'm sorry to hear about that.
also, drew storen was getting tons of death threats on twitter last night, apparently. sad stuff.
Wow Ru, that's very disturbing to hear. I hope those people get caught.

The threats are very strange to me. I'm just sad, not angry. I want to give Storen a hug, not send him a tweet telling to die. Everyone should read Wise's column about him today.
Worst loss I've ever been to in person. My soul is crushed still...

I sat next to UGW last night during the game and he left the second Drew Storen gave up the lead. Didn't even wait until the game ended. Who knows, maybe he left to go on suicide watch. Surprisingly, he is a lot less negative in person.
I think I am still in shock because I am frankly not that angry....
I never thought we were going to lose the game...even after Beltran led off with the double...
the thing that kills me the most is the turds that beat us...the bottom of their lineup...
and cheers to EAM...we got great seats and thought we were going to witness history...
Jackie Robinson isn't dirty. This isn't Pack Pride.
I was thinking about Storen last night. As bad as any fan feels he has to feel much worse. Yeah...he needs hugs.
He's a good guy to watch a game with. Definitely more knowledgeable than his board persona would lead you to believe (but every bit as passionate.)
I think being overly negative online is just and outlet for some people. I sat with ravenssterps at Game 2 at OPACY, and he wasn't nearly as critical as he is on here either.

I wasn't there last night...but I was at both Gone in 54 & the '01 FF...I think if I was there this would have been #3.
But of course, as DC/MD sports fans we have so many to choose from. IIRC...we now own the records for a) largest lead lost in a FF game, and b) largest lead lost in a MLB deciding (gm 5 or 7) game.
In additon, already this year we had to deal with the Caps/Rags game - I don't think it was the latest lead lost in an NHL playoff history, but had to be one of the top 5??
The joys of fandom....
I was obviously stomping around threatening everyone in my path for the last however many hours, but when my Giants fan friend texted me "Imagine how Storen feels", I got way less angry. He's a good dude who had no intention of blowing the biggest game of his life. We're cursed, but it's not his fault
I felt like I should have issued an amber alert for myself, just in case
ran into a bunch of players last night, and my friend (who isn't a nats fan) said that he thought he saw storen too. seeing them out last night made me feel much better about the situation because 1. i could tell that as miserable as i was/am, they were 10x more, so theres no reason to have a pity party and 2. well, i tried to think of a second reason but can't...it still really really sucks. i really just hope that this doesn't mess up Storen's game for the next couple years; he's always been one of my favorite players since we drafted him.
yeah a lot of them were out.
most said on twitter how it's their last day or couple days in DC before heading home and they were miserable to leave the area. lots of them have been big fans of living here and obviously had a blast this year. i'm glad they all feel like shit for the way the season ended, but at the same time are optimistic about next year.
so can we ban carlterp yet?

I am still crushed, love Nats though. I think Nats will be playoff team for next 6 years.
Threats are absurd, I hate that crap.
first nats game i decided to watch all the way through this year (yeah, i know). little did i realize the last inning would be a snuff film.
damn, just realized storen is only 4 months older than me. i cannot imagine what he must be feeling. for some reason is still feel like all pro athletes are way older than me. tough loss, we'll be back.
