I'm a Washingtonian who is all about the triumph of hope over experience that is being a D.C. sports fan, especially the Nats, then Caps and Redskins. I blog about them too. I'm a Penn Stater who misses when everything was beautiful and nothing hurt. I'm related to a former Yankees employee too, so they are my AL team. @doubleuefwhy
