Because No One’s Tired of the 12th Man Gimmick

Mar 14, 2008, 9:48 AM EDT

The Nationals, wanting fans to feel all warm and cozy in the confines of the new stadium they’re set to open this spring, are actually going to attempt to apply the "12th Man" theme made popular by Texas A&M and the Seattle Seahawks. So I guess Phillies players and fans should be intimidated by the menacing 10th man  in DC, despite their not having even set foot in the new stadium yet, nor the Nats having finished higher than 4th since relocating from Puerto Rico Montreal.

Even the Mottrams disapprove.
