Oh My Fvckking Christ

I see that the Washington Nationals' Team Store will sell me an autographed ball -- autographed by Paul LoDuca.



For the privilege of owning this ball, they would like me to pay the sum of $129.99



I swear to Gahd that if they had offered to pay me $129.99, I would never in a million years have accepted the ball from that douchenozzle -- a-hole -- Captain Red-Ass -- dick -- steroid using effer.

He did marry a Playboy model, though. That was unpredictable. . . .

Hey remember way way back when you were praising jeebus that DC was awarded an expansion franchise? Man those were the days.

I wonder who picked the price point for a Paul LoDuca baseball? Maybe the same genius who decided to charge $300 for empty seats behind home plate.

Given that the only people in America who want a Paul LoDuca autographed baseball are related to him and could get one for free, the true value of the ball is basically the same as a ball without an autograph -- Rawlings lists a "Major League Specifications Baseball" for $73 a dozen, i.e., $6 a piece. What the Nats are saying then is that LoDuca's autograph by itself is worth $123 -- they can't really believe that, can they?

Why yes, they *were* the days! And I remember them fondly.

The days before they charged me outrageous prices for crap season tickets [three nouns in a row!], before they refused to return phone calls about maybe reupping, but with different seats, before they fielded a 102-loss team -- you know, the year that was better than this one.

Of COURSE I remember!
