Mary & Mike--Expos/Nationals Fans
Today, Mary & Mike still support Washington's Major League Franchise, the former Montreal Expos, as their own.
Even after six years have passed since The Montreal Expos played their final game in Canada, this nice couple have stuck with their original franchise, Our Washington Nationals, as their favorite team. For Mary & Mike it's all about the dedication and fun of enjoying their Major League Team--through all the wins and losses. They attend spring training each year, travel to various cities to watch ball games in the many unique ballparks (at least 25 different and counting) and, of course, have visited RFK Stadium and Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. during the regular season.
Mary & Mike are truly fans and they've been wonderful to meet and spend time with over the past few days in Viera, Florida. They are heading home tomorrow, driving all the way--33 hours worth--to Maine. Hopefully, Sohna and I will see them again at Nationals Park this summer. Or maybe, at a visiting ballpark on the road. And if not, definitely at Spring Training 2012--somewhere in Florida.
Safe travels, Mary & Mike. The African Queen & I had great time chatting with both of you.
