This season, the Washington Nationals want you to "ignite your Natitude," but after the Cincinnati Reds avoided a four-game sweep in a 8-5 victory over the Nationals Sunday, first baseman Joey Votto broke the 11th Commandment: "Thou Shalt Not Infringe on Thy Opponent's Gimmick."
"We certainly didn't want to play four games and get swept," Votto said in an inteview with Fox Sports Ohio. "They showed a lot of Natitude the first three games. We showed some Cincinnatitude in the last game."
The Nats and Reds meet again May 11-13. Perhaps that series has now taken on new meaning. Probably not, but hey, a rivalry over a marketing campaign is still a rivalry.
