My Nationals Thought of the Day:
Why didn’t the Nationals try to have a Fanfest this year? Heck most fans would have accepted Fanfest lite. I have trouble believing an event like this could not have happened.
Team president Stan Kasten mentioned in a Washington Post online chat a couple months ago that they were exploring the idea of a Fanfest-type event. Haven’t heard anything else about this.
The DC Armory or the Convention Center would be fine spots and Metro accessible. Screech would certainly entertain the young ones. Former Washington baseball greats could be found as well as current Nationals could sign autographs for a brief time, chat with the fans and then split.
I wasn’t looking for an elaborate event just something for us Nationals fans during the offseason (even if the team on the field doesn’t give us much hope in 2007) that’s all.
