David Gregory and Bruce Springsteen shout out the Nats

“I just want a feel-good moment,” he said. “Can we just have a feel-good moment? We’ve got to tip a cap, quite literally, to the playoff-bound Nationals, the Washington Nationals. First time that Washington’s had a playoff team since 1933, when I was just a boy. A little painful that they clinched this against my Los Angeles Dodgers, but they have been so great to follow. FDR was President when they were playing the Giants in the World Series that year. He said, I’ll just sit on both sides to keep it even. Washington is going all the way.”

Meanwhile, Bruce Springsteen made brief reference to the Nats during his recent Nats Park show.

“I hear there’s some pretty good baseball being played here,” he said, to much applause. (Video below, via @recordsANDradio.)
