"In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened." - Vin Scully
Those words rang all too true for my beloved Nationals this season. However, it was for all the wrong reasons. It will be a very difficult winter this year, especially after my most despised team, the Giants, won the World Series. This was a promising season, and it meant so much to me to be able to share it with my father, a Washington native, who before this season never got to see his beloved Senators/Nationals play in the playoffs. I just wish we could have gone all the way.
A hurt like this never goes away; you have to simply go on and eventually the pain will lessen. For now it still hurts though.
