He's Getting Excited Now...

Tom Boswell writes about how DC is ripe for a sea-change in its sports climate. With the Redskins stinking up FedEx Field for the better part of a decade, he believes the Nats are ripe to take a share of the passion.

I'm not nearly as optimistic as he is on this. Certainly the Nats will have lots of support, but it doesn't necessarily need to be at the expense of the Skins. And certainly with the baseball luddites in the sports talk market who know little to nothing about baseball other than the old saws, it'll be much more difficult convincing the casual fan to get excited--especially as the long season drags on.
