Nats' Fans Can Find Web Sites That Bring Back the Memories


Heller, Dick, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


Once a Washington Senators fan, always a Washington Senators fan. Especially in the cases of two Northern Virginia die-hards who have created web sites on the Internet to recall the good times - what there were of them - before our respective franchises bolted to Minnesota (1961) and Texas (1972).

David Gough has a site named "They've Stolen Our Team" (www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Stadium/4429) that has a chronology and recollections of the original Nats shortly before Calvin Griffith betrayed his and our heritage by sneaking off to the Midwest. Clay Randall offers a page called "The Washington Senators" (www.msd.si.net/~clay/dc/senators), which memorializes the expansion club before Bob Short hijacked it to the Southwest.

On Randall's main page, he writes that he was too young to remember the Senators' first move. However, he remembers the second all too clearly, and "I was completely traumatized by this event and have ignored professional baseball ever since."

Gough's site features team images, a trivia game and a guest book in which former Senators fans can vent their spleen over owners who abandon ship at the drop of a dollar.

So?

"I'd hate to imagine what the president is going through or Monica Lewinsky or anybody who's tagged with that," Norman said. "I'm getting frustrated, and I'm light years away from it."

Norman's friendship with the president came to the fore after Clinton injured his knee last year while leaving the golfer's home in Florida. The Shark has denied that Lewinsky was at his home at that time. …
