PHOTO: Nationals 150-Year Anniversary Banner Forgets 33 Years, Adds Two Years

This is a new banner that recently went up at Nationals Park. As the sign indicates, it's a way to celebrate 150 years of baseball in Washington D.C. It's a nice gesture. Unfortunately, it has the following problems:

↵
    ↵
  • It is 2011, not 2009. So the sign is two years late.
  • ↵
  • There were 33 years when there was no baseball team in this city. Kind of hard to ignore those 33 years.
  • ↵
↵

Those are pretty big problems. Maybe I'm just missing the point, and I'll gladly back down if so, but these problems kind of undermine the premise of the sign, right?
