Ryan Zimmerman's "Happy Ending" For The Nats On Opening Night

Sunday, March 30, 2008

Now this is how you open a season and a new ballpark. It had the feeling of yet another blown save after a passed ball in the top of the ninth and that the Nats and Braves were going extra innings. But "Z" made up for Lo Duca's mistake....

"The happy ending for the Nationals!"- Jon Miller

Happy Ending Jon Miller? If you say so. What a great way to start the (as Joe Morgan would call it) the "American" season and hopefully we'll have some more fun tomorrow.

Here's also the first homerun at the Park as called by George W. Bush. Miller seems a bit jealous here....

Zimm’s Walk-Off: Too Good to Be True (Mister Irrelevant)

Despite his flaws I really do like Jon Miller. I guess it helps to have Joe Morgan to contrast him against. Ugh. Really though I think his call on that homerun made it even better.

That was one hell of a way to kick off the season and I don't even pull for the Nats! But congratulations nevertheless on your "happy ending". I laughed out loud when he said that, good stuff.

Ryan Zimmerman: Further proof that The University of Virginia produces the finest men in this country. Saw him do this all the time in Charlottesville and its no different now.

>> what's a past ball?

When the pitch gets by the catcher and a runner advances a base as a result, it's either a wild pitch or a passed ball, depending on who the official scorer thinks is at fault. If the catcher should have had an easy time with it and it gets by him anyway, it's a passed ball; if it's a horrible pitch and the catcher would have had to make a ridiculous play to stop it, it's a wild pitch.
