Once again I could make an excuse about being a terrible blogger. I could apologize for not posting my September predictions. For not posting anything really at ALL during the month of September. For not having the time to acknowledge the amazing things that this team has done (other than clinching the postseason back on September 20).
Instead I’ve been at games – doing the thing I promised I was doing instead of posting. I’ve been a fan – eating hot dogs, drinking beer, cheering myself hoarse, high-fiving strangers. I’ve still been taking lots of pictures and thinking critically about this team, but without the pressure of “How will I write about this for the blog?” I’m able to enjoy this last and sweetest part of the season, and everything amazing that has happened all year long.
I promise to do more later. There may be some catch up posts with links to pictures if I ever get them from my computer to our picture site. For now – have this one. It’s totally out of focus. But I think it expresses a little bit of the exuberance that was palapable even from the “cheap seats”. The Nats are going to Game 5. They’re still in it. The season isn’t over yet…and I think they can do it!
