Chevy Chase DC Storm Damage

I spent sometime this afternoon and early evening in Chevy Chase DC.   While communities in Prince Georges County might have been the hardest hit from last nights storms, there are a few homeowners in Chevy Chase also dealing with some major storm damage today. The good news is I hadn't heard of any serious injuries in Chevy Chase.

Phone Booth Hate

****** UPDATE Thursday Night 6-22...  The posters have been removed from the phone booth  ******

It doesn't take a lot to shock me...  But I was walking in Silver Spring when I came across the below phone booth with the man and woman who according to the capition "deserve to die".    I am not a cat lover, and who knew what this guy's smug is about, but I don't think anyone deserves to die.

Post # 400, Yankees - Nationals Baseball Game

A sellout crowd was on hand Saturday afternoon two see my two favorite baseball teams play ball!   I am lifelong Yankees fan, however I have become a huge Nationals fan in the past few years.   Todays game went 14 innings, and in the end the Yanks beat Nats 5-3.

Yankees Pitcher Andy Pettitte

Teddy on bike, and yes he lost again in the Presidents Race.

A Bryce Harper fan about to get his photo taken with Abe Lincoln.
