No 2020 Washington Nationals’ Opening Day today, but plenty of 2019 nostalgia from Breaking T still available...

Buy yourself or a friend a t-shirt to help deal with the fact that there is no baseball today...

Way back in 2018, Davey Martinez, who would go on to some level of notoriety as the manager whose “1-0 Every Day” approach helped the Nationals #STAYINTHEFIGHT and win a World Series title for Washington, D.C. in 2019, tried out his first attempt at a motivational tool, telling reporters he wanted his club to develop good HABIT(s).

“For me,” Martinez said, “from what I’ve learned from [the players], and we talked about this often in Spring Training, I came up with one word that best describes our team, and it was ‘Habit,’ and what it means is ‘Heart, attitude, belief, integrity, trust,’ and that’s what I believe in this team.”

Yeah, not the best motivational tool, but he learned his lesson, and got better, and I learned a lesson too, don’t joke on Twitter about t-shirt ideas with the Breaking T crew, cause they just might do it.

Here are some significantly better shirts...
