A good feature and a reminder that I still want to do a devil’s dictionary on my site.

Yesterday, we saw a no-hitter. Today, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the announcement baseball was back. I remember it well — I brought my Washington Senators pennant to work that day and kept up on rumors that there would be an announcement at the now defunct, City Museum. Once it was confirmed, I left work, parked at home in Pentagon City and took the Yellow Line up to Mount Vernon Sq. The place was hoping with baseball fans, many in old Senators caps. They let us all in and we celebrated the news that WE HAD A TEAM. It was a magical day.

There was also a variable message sign congratulating them when they arrived at Dulles, according to Federal Baseball.

This is important.
