Morning Pixels: Nats players excited to be back in D.C.

Matt Hendricks asked an excellent question yesterday.

Well, the answer is today. The Nats are back in D.C. and very excited about it.  

 

 

 

 


The Nats play an exhibition game against the Yankees today at Nats park. Game time is 2:05. Raise your hand if you’re excited.

 

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER

* Syracuse took down Indiana.

* Feinstein on the sad end for Miami’s season.

TWEET OF THE NIGHT

 

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT

Rafael Soriano’s mom on why her son works so hard:

“When he needed something, I couldn’t provide it. He said, ‘When I’m a baseball player, you’ll see. Anything you need, I’ll give you.’ I told him, ‘Son, don’t worry. God will provide and much more.’ ”

 

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT II

Soriano, on growing up poor:

“I once was there. I met someone once who didn’t have much, didn’t even know what an apple was, a grape or a pear. God has blessed me, he’s blessed my family and people who aren’t my family that we’ve helped.”

NATS FANS OF THE DAY

In anticipation of Opening Day, WaPo’s Alex Baldinger and Fritz Hahn talked to some very serious Nats fans, including Maury Povich, about how the baseball season shapes their lives. Definitely worth the read.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

I love gummy candy. You could make a gummy in any shape and I’d eat it. So when I see that FabCafe in Tokyo is using 3D printers to make gummy candy in any human likeness, I’m cashing in some miles and going to Japan. (via cheezburger.com)
