DMV is a daily roundup of District-Maryland-Virginia (mostly) sporting links.
Like Obama, we were unable to attend the Nats home opener. Thankfully, Christmas Ape of KSK fame was there, as were Eastbound & Down’s KP and two other notables (after the jump). We thank Ape for the pics.

I’m not sure if this guy is always a dick or if he’s just playing one in print, but what he fails to mention is that the Nats are awful and have no history.

To write that D.C. fans are “inferior” or D.C. itself is “second-rate” because of that is just, well, mean-spirited and stereotypically Philadelphian. [John Gonzalez]
