It’s hard for me not to have baseball on the mind this afternoon. In just a few hours, the hometown Washington Nationals will look to extend their LEAGUE BEST 10-game winning streak against the San Francisco Giants. Hmm, no plans tonight, maybe I head on out to the ballpark.
I’m as equally crazy about the start of football, but baseball in August is pretty fun when your team is in a pennant race.
