Bad, Bad, Bad

Okay, it’s been way too long since I added a blog entry here.  I guess I was not happy with the Nationals getting knocked out in the first round of the baseball playoffs.  I was also not happy with the Redskins losing the first playoff game of the NFL playoffs and RG III going down in that game.

However, right now the sports situation in DC isn’t all bad.  The Nationals are not playing as well as we would have hoped but they are only two games behind the Braves, the Braves have played two less games than the Nats and they are going into a series against the Reds in Cincinnatti.  Of course, the Nats have to play Detroit for two games.

The Capitals have been on fire since February after a dismal start, won the Southeast Division and are up 2-0 in the series against the Rangers.  Hopefully they can steal at least one in New York.

The Kastles announced their 2013 schedule including the addition of Martina Hingis to the Kastles roster.  I have never been a fan of this Martina – only the other Martina (Navratilova).  I have always rooted for whoever was playing against Martina Hingis.  But WTT is a team sport so I will now be forced to cheer for Martina Hingis and hope she wins. The season starts July 8, 2013 at Kastles Stadium at the Wharf.

Originally Venus Williams was only supposed to play for the Kastles in DC on July 9, 2013 and in Dallas against the Texas Wild on July 10, 2013.  But Venus decided that since the streak was on the line that she would fly directly from Wimbledon to DC to play on July 8 to try to help the team get the first two matches of the season to set a new streak of 34-0, one more than the LA Lakers streak of 33 wins in a row.
