A Rainy Curly W!

The rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the die-hard Nationals fans at Nationals Park Monday night, as the Nationals were able to record another Curly W!  After a two hour rain delay, Jordan Zimmerman started his first career game and boy am I glad to have him pitching for us.  His control was incredible and he even reached 95 mph on his fast ball!  Jordan’s pitches earned him his first career win in a game that ended shortly after midnight!  The game was wet, and ended early the next morning, but the results were well worth the wait!  I already can’t wait for Jordan’s second career start.


Until next time,



 Finally!  It has seemed like forever, but Opening Day finally came!  It was great to have the Nationals back playing in their home ballpark yesterday, and I was so pumped to be back entertaining Nationals fans.  The day started in the early morning as I was interviewed by a few morning shows.  I showed off the promotional items for opening week to ABC and rode my new segway for FOX 5!  As the game approached in the afternoon I couldn’t contain my excitement.  The air was crisp, the crowd was buzzing, and the atmosphere couldn’t have been better!  The crowd was really easy to excite because everyone was already thrilled to witness baseball again for the first time of the year.  During the game, in between meeting so many great people, I delivered Papa Johns Pizza to some lucky fans, crowned Abe the winner of the day’s presidents race, tossed some t-shirts, and danced my wings off!  I’m so glad that baseball is back, and I can’t wait for the next 80 home games!!!
