In news that will surprise no one, the Washington Nationals suck. We're not talking about struggling, we're talking about flat-out suckitude. They have the worst record in the majors with nine less wins than the second worst team, the Cleveland Indians.
They are so bad they are actually one of the top drawing road teams in the majors - because fans of the opposing team are almost guaranteed to see a victory if the Nationals are in town. As you can imagine, things are a bit rougher at home, where on an average only about 23,000 hearty souls show up to watch the home team roll over and play dead.
Of course, that's a minor miracle considering this may be their actual theme song (I'm not 100 percent sure it is their theme song, but it's bad enough to believe that it is).
Things are so bad that a Nats fan was actually poked fun at on one of my favorite web sites - Don't Even Reply. The site consists of one man replying to want ads posted on-line and pranking the people who placed the ads. Hilarity ensues. It is seriously one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Fair warning to the faint of heart and those at work - the site contains a ton of foul language, so if that's something that could cause a problem, you've been warned.
A couple of weeks ago a Nationals Fan posted an add looking for tickets to their game against the Red Sox, and let's just say things didn't go well. Check it out for yourself.
The good news for Nationals fans, Greg Robinson isn't your coach and the All-Star break is just around the corner - you can't lose if you don't play.
