Yes, I know this is a baseball card blog.. And there will likely be Topps Now cards made of what I'm going to talk about in this..
This will not be a card post..
This is an Expos post..
Or more specifically, the Washington Nationals wearing Expos uniforms celebrating the 50th anniversary of the team..
The problem is... The Expos ceased to exist in 2004.. So...
How are the Nationals celebrating the 50th anniversary of a team that ceased to exist when they moved? Did the Twins do this? Have the Rangers done this? I don't remember hearing those teams ever wearing the Senators uniforms after they moved.. So why are the Nationals celebrating the Expos? Is it because of the groundswell to get the Expos back??
Is it because, unlike Washington, there are people who actually want the team back? I mean, there's a reason the Nationals are the third team in modern era MLB
So yeah.. I'm not happy about the uniforms.. I mean, they were well done.. I will show pictures from today's game below.. But in my, and a lot of others online's opinions, this is a slap to the face of Expos fans.
The Nationals beat the Royals 6-0
