What the Hell?

I go away for a weekend, and all hell breaks loose?

First, Odalis Perez isn't happy with the contract his agent negotiated with the team? Know what? So what. Hey "O", if you're not happy with $850,000, or whatever it is, you can sit at home. Just like Manny and many others.

Second, the Racing Presidents on Long Island? Seriously? I know it's President's Day, but I don't care. These are OUR mascots. Not the Islanders'. It would be gimmicky enough if it were at a Caps game, and I LIKE the Caps! But trotting OUR Presidents up to Uniondale to skate between periods at an Islanders-Penguins game? I just don't get it.

Were Nats sales reps up there trying to sell seats in the right field bleachers too?

Ugh. Can't wait to get back.

    Like I said, it's just kind of gimmicky for me all around. I didn't realize there were a bunch of mascots at the one game. I still don't have to like it :)

    Screech has been to the Caps game though. He hung out with Caps mascot Slapshot at a game.
