[VIDEO] Taiwanese Broadcast of Nats-Braves Game

Thanks to some Taiwanese internet ninjas, here's about 80 mins of footage from the Taiwanese broadcast of yesterday's game. ELTA TV used the MASN feed with their own broadcasters.

I may be the only one to find any of this worthwhile. But it's interesting to Nats player names interspersed with Chinese, along with the fact they let Bob and F.P and Debbie's on-camera reporting go through untranslated.

Also, I really wish I knew what they were saying during the president's race around the 28 minute mark.

[Video] 6/5 HBP game vs. ARI

Because pirating game video is fun. Too bad I'm too slow to get it posted while it's still newsworthy.

Rob Drake makes a strong case to join Paul Schrieber and Hunter Wendlestedt on the umpiring crew from hell. But I still blame Lance Cormier.

Springtime Delusion

Maybe it's a sick sense of irony, or maybe it's just a commentary on how dreadfully boring my life otherwise is. Or maybe it's the impending arrival of Little Rocket #3 making me more sappy and self-deluded than usual. But I really kind of enjoyed watching that crapfest last night.

Yeah, the Nats lost in their typical blaze of facepalms. But for a few innings there, they had me thinking that this time it would turn out different. And that really captures what makes April baseball fun.

[Video] Opening Night 2008

Tomorrow, the Nats open the 2011 season at home against the Braves. Three years ago today, they opened the 2008 season and Nationals Park against the Braves. Here is the full game.

Heroics aside, it was actually a pretty terrible game. And son of a bitch, it was cold.

[Video] Nats MLBN 30 Clubs Episode

Here's the MLB Network 30 Clubs in 30 Days episode about the Nats, for whatever it's worth. Which isn't much - it's already out of date. But there's something delightfully self-delusional about watching a Nats puff piece.

Opening Night 2005 [Video Boredom Buster]

If you got nothing else to do at work today - or you just don't want to work - relive the entire first game back in DC.

[In case you're wondering, Cormier drills Castilla around the 1:56:30 mark. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!]

Mama Tried to Raise Me Better

This is what happens when one is in downtown Nashville wearing Nats gear.

Didn't Merle Haggard write a song about being a Nats fan?
