Take another little piece of my heart, now, Buddy
A good case but a wrong one.
You see, all year I've been saying that I'd believe in the "Nationals" when I saw them take the field on opening day. (And whining that they should still call them the Greys.) I wasn't going to let Bud Selig or the DC government jerk me around again. Not me, jack. Don't believe the hype!
Then I got behind on my Christmas shopping. I had to consider my options... something my family would like, something I could order easily online.
So I started investigating ticket prices. What could be better than good seats for the first season of the new team?
One day after I went to the website, the deal was "on hold." People were talking about refunding ticket purchases. I had to face the malls today.
Baseball fans of the DC area, please accept my heartfelt apologies. Don't blame the mayor who can't get his ducks in a row. Don't blame the rampagingly broken system of MLB greed.
I broke the deal. It was the Librarian, on the Internet, with a simple wish of Christmas cheer.
