P-Nats break franchise attendance mark again
WASHINGTON -- For the second straight year, the Potomac Nationals broke their franchise attendance mark, drawing 243,559 fans in 2014. That surpassed the 236,772 the team drew in 2013, which had also set a new franchise mark.
The P-Nats won both halves of the Carolina League’s northern division and open the best-of-three Northern Division Championship Series Wednesday night at Pfitzner Stadium in Woodbridge, Va.
Navy breaks out new Summer White unis for Ohio State
WASHINGTON -- Navy football can make a major opening week statement on Saturday in Baltimore as the Midshipmen take on fifth-ranked Ohio State. No matter the result, at least we know they’ll look sharp.
On Thursday morning, the school unveiled the Under Armour jerseys the Summer White-inspired will wear on Saturday. They feature white pants and tops, with navy shoulder pads and gold piping. The helmets are white on top with the anchor emblem on the side, separated by a gold ring at facemask level, then navy blue underneath. The sleeves will include bars to indicate each player’s rank.
Under Armour’s uniform attempts have gone awry before (see: every Maryland jersey ever), but these seem to be receiving universal applause. What do you think?
“I’d retire first. It’s the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 train to the ballpark looking like you’re [riding through] Beirut next to some kid with purple hair next to some queer with AIDS right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It’s depressing… The biggest thing I don’t like about New York are the foreigners. You can walk an entire block in Times Square and not hear anybody speaking English. Asians and Koreans and Vietnamese and Indians and Russians and Spanish people and everything up there. How the hell did they get in this country?”
