Poor Jason Bergmann

Sources tell me that at the ESPN Zone function today where Jason Bergmann appeared, took fan questions and signed autographs, only five Nats fans showed up. Bergy's had his share of disappointments this season, but this had to be tough today.

This is the first of these lunchtime events I've missed, and usually there's been 50-75 people in attendance. Granted, these were all while school was still out, and despite public reports, brought all types of fans out to the event. Maybe Mr. Oppenheim was closer to the truth than I was willing to admit.

GM Jim Bowden and Ass't GM Mike Rizzo are scheduled to appear Friday at ESPN Zone as previously mentioned (with fake transcript) here. It promises to be must-see tv. I wouldn't miss it for the world. And if only five people come out for that, then that just means more face time for me!

    I would have loved to go, but contrary to popular perception I have, you know, a job. Wed at noon has to be the worst possible time for something like this, no?

    Oh no! Seriously?! I was completely planning on going (even did my hair today!), but work emergencies kept me from being able to sneak out until well after noon. Poor Bergmann!

    Was Nats320 there to report on it? If not, then the event never happened and Jason Bergmann is officially irrelevant.

    ABM, there's no post about it over on his blog, so i guess not. man, what did Jason do to fall out of those good graces?
