Then there is the disaster happening on the field. Heading into Friday night, the Nationals were 29-30 and in third place in the National League East behind the Atlanta Braves (tomahawk chop = worst cheer ever) and some team called the Philadelphia Phillies. This for a Nats squad that both ESPN the Magazine and Sports Illustrated picked to win it all this year.
The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza is pretty sure that it was the Washington Nationals, a baseball team in Major League Baseball's National League, that had the "Worst Week In Washington."
Guess it was a pretty slow week at the Post! No big scoops that rocked Capitol Hill or anything.
