Fans of the Washington Nationals have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Here are a few of the most significant things.
Being a baseball fan, specifically a Washington Nationals fan, is no small task. The team plays 162 games every year, and if they are lucky, they will attempt to win 11 more in October.
The postseason is an underdetermined mess that has continually burns Nats fans after six months of pouring their hearts into the team, but they still have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. As Nats fans have learned, the postseason is not everything, and we must enjoy the six months of constant baseball before the long Winter hits.
The team is in a bit of disarray at the moment, with a new coaching staff, yet they will still contend and should once again make it to the postseason. In baseball, one of the most parity-filled sports in the world, this is not something to be taken for granted.
While baseball is not everything, and there are certainly countless other things that matter much more, it feels like our lives revolve around the Nats and baseball at times.
So while you sit down and consider what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving, remember to include the Nats. And before you prepare yourself for another potential October heartbreak, remember that, yes, there are indeed many things to be thankful for.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at a few things Nats fans should be thankful for.
