I can. I feel it right in my balls… perhaps because watching the MLB Playoffs this year is about as pleasant as getting molested by a big-dicked goat. 

But I still feel it. 

I’m not sure the folks in D.C. do, however. 

D.C. Sports Bog’s Dan Steinberg tweets that the Nationals-Cardinals game received (achieved?) an 8.29 rating in D.C yesterday. That’s compared to the Redskins’ 25.44 rating. To put it all in perspective, a Phillies-Cardinals NLDS game last year, also on TBS, also on a football Sunday, got a 21.9 rating, while the Eagles slightly edged them that day with a 27.5 rating.

But I don’t care about the ratings. Football rules TV, and it always will. What I enjoy is this Groupon, for Nats playoff tickets:

Hilar. It should be noted, though, that these are all on suite tickets– which tells me that the Nats are having trouble selling their premium allotment, not necessarily regular tickets. The seats aren’t discounted either. Rather, it appears the Nats are just using Groupon as a distribution channel. But since Groupon generally takes about 50% of the sale, it’s obvious the team needs some help selling their inventory.

Anyway, a cool $375 will get you a sweet suite ticket for a Nationals-Cardinals NLDS game. The Nats lead that series, 1-0. And my grapes are of the sour variety.
