The Textbook Definition of Irony

Sure, it's not the Nats, but this is too good to pass up:
The Tennessee Smokies have teamed up with Really Nuts to find the nuttiest fan in all of minor league baseball. On Monday, May 8 the Smokies will hold a series of on-field contests designed to find the "nuttiest" Smokies fan in East Tennessee.

The contests will ask fans to show their enthusiasm for the Smokies in a variety of ways. The fan who is the "nuttiest" Smokies fan will win the grand prize of an all expense paid trip to the Texas League All-Star Game.

One fan from each of the 18 minor league baseball teams will earn the title as their team’s Nuttiest Fan. All 18 winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip for 2 to the Texas League All-Star game on June 20th in Little Rock, Arkansas. They will attend the game and meet Really Nuts! Spokesperson and ESPN Baseball Tonight analyst, John Kruk.
I guess Mike Gallego wasn't available.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. No laughing matter. Blah blah blah. Tell that to Kruk.
