The Seattle Mariners are one of three teams (Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals) that have never appeared in a World Series.  The video below demonstrates that despite this fact, there is joy in Seattle even if mighty Ken Griffey, Jr. has just struck out.

Our podcast featuring the Seattle Mariners will be released on Friday, September 17th.  Go Mariners!!!

Nationals Presidents

Cherry Blossoms,  Congress,  Racing Presidents and your money.  This week we are in our Nation’s capitol where all four can be found.

We start our podcast by making a u-turn and taking a quick jaunt back to Minneapolis to interview Kevin Smith, Executive Director of Public Affairs for the Minnesota Twins.  Kevin gives a a recap of Target Field opening day.

Next Ed, Farley and Mark discuss the great features of our Nation’s capitol and Nationals baseball.  Gina Leo Stingley from Populous teaches us that Nationals Park is a green park in a city on a hill that would make any environmentalist proud.  Ed then interviews Frank Ceresi, co-author of the book, Baseball Americana – Treasures From The Library of Congress.  (FYI.  Library of Congress is archiving all Twitter messages!)

Ed, Farley and Mark then conclude the podcast with excitement as they leave the green ballpark in D.C. for next week’s podcast destination – the green monster at Fenway.

George W. Bush said that he was a uniter and not a divider.   On April 5, 2010, President Barack Obama galvanized the crowd as he stood on the pitcher’s mound preparing to throw out the first pitch.

Listen to the crowd as our Commander in Chief puts on his baseball cap.  This Friday, we’ll be releasing our Washington Nationals podcast.  Enjoy the video.
