Great Moments in Nationals Sign-Making History

Here at the Zimmerman(n) Telegram, we take pride in making a new and unique sign whenever we attend a Nationals game. Given today is the worst day in all of sports with absolutely nothing going on, I thought it would be good to show you some of our signs that we have shown off at Nationals games.

Giometry 101: Gio Pitches Circles Around Rockies

Final Score: Nationals 4, Rockies 1

Dame of the Game:

Gio Gonzalez: 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 6 K. Gio’s ability to pitch effectively in extreme heat is surprising only until you remember that he is constantly giving off energy he channels from the earth’s hot magma core.

Shame of the Game:

Rockies Defense: 4 errors. The Rockies defenders just didn’t seem capable of catching, throwing, or spell-checking the two page papers on Giology they were supposed to hand in. Bad grades all around.

Hello class. Settle down, settle down.

The Giology Professor is out for the day with some kind of conference or terminal illness, they didn’t tell me which. I’ll be your substitute teacher for the day. My name is Mr. Neptooth. Here, let me write that on the board for you like it’s pronounced:

“Mr. Grrapfth-SHUHHNK-sog”

Say “hi, Mr. Neptooth.” No, that’s not right at all. Let’s just move on.

Now I know this is supposed to be a Giology class, but I don’t know much of anything about Giology. I am, however, an expert in Giometry, a related field, so instead I will give you a Giometry lecture.

I assume you are all familiar with Gio Gonzalez? Good, good. Yes, he is the most important area of study in the scientific and mathematics fields. You already know about his role in the the earth, its evolution, and its rocks. I will now tell you how he participates in the world of shapes. Continue reading

Prepare for a Gio-Thermal Energy Overload: Nationals Take Lucas Giolito at #16 Overall

That’s him on the right. I don’t know why the guy on the left is smiling, he just got drafted by the Padres.

It’s an exciting first round pick for the Nats, as Giolito is projected to have possibly the highest ceiling of any pitcher in the 2012 class. Many have compared him to Stephen Strasburg, since he throws 100 mph, has a bad injury history, and is constantly seen clutching his groin.

Giolito went to Harvard-Westlike High School, which is sort of like Harvard University in that it has Harvard in the name. Hopefully that will fool opposing batters into thinking he’s intelligent and might try to trick them with something other than a 100 mph fastball. Which he won’t because he’s probably pretty dumb.
