Nationals Vs. Phillies: OK, This Is Officially Ridiculous

Editor Emeritus Mike Prada forwarded us this, which we are in turn passing on to you. Consider this our Friday gift.

All together now: M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E.

I mean, this is the kind of thing that turns people off, isn't it? It's one thing to be the plucky underdog doing surprisingly well in the early pig pile for NL East supremacy. There's even a certain perverse logic to limiting ticket sales to the District, Maryland, and Virginia.

But between putting up huge 'Natitude Park' banners and slapping 'Nattitude' stickers on every available surface, it's enough to make us feel sorry for the Nats fans we know. And here's why ... if the Phillies waltz in here and win the series (or, God forbid, sweep) then every baseball-covering outlet in the country will engage in one giant game of point-and-laugh. And you know what? They should.

Thankfully, the team on the field is run by a guy with his head screwed on straight.
