OK, so someone has probably already done this sort of thing here, but I'm going to revisit the question nonetheless. In a different post comment I mentioned that my top two Nationals' moments were the St Stephen Strikeout Number 14, and JMax's (RIP) grand slam to finish the 2009 season in style. I got to thinking about some of my other favorite moments, but I thought the community could add in some of their own favorites. Maybe we can vote on the top moments ever. I say we milk the discussion all the way 'till the snow melts...
I can easily sell the first moment: it was a time when the crowd, and the entire baseball world, knew that they were witnessing a chunk of history unfold before their eyes. The response itself was electric; it sent shivers down my spine. It was an extraordinary accomplishment from a guy who already had otherworldly expectations thrust upon him.
The second moment was also greatly motivated by the response of the crowd. Bottom of the ninth, the Nats were trailing badly and down to their final out. Maxwell hit the ball hard, but would it be hard enough??? The Mets outfielder (forget who, it's not important anyway) broke back and might have had a play on the ball. The crowd leapt to their feet, screaming and imploring the ball to fly FLY. And then... silence. The outfielder climbed the wall to grab at the ball, but did he catch it? Wait... wait... wait... NO! He couldn't grab it! Now the crowd goes bonkers! What an amazing comeback! A bright spot in an otherwise dismal season.
Alright, so anyway, what are your big moments? Are there any others???
