News4's Pat Collins is covering the World Series as only Pat Collins can: with props, a legal pad and unforgettable delivery.
Here are Pat's best moments as D.C. roots for the Nationals.
"It is time to giddy up," Pat told us in Houston, wearing a white cowboy hat with a big, red curly W on the front. Pat got the hat before Game 1 against the Astros. He tried on cowboy boots and a "snazzy" belt buckle, too.
In Houston, Pat sampled some Texas barbecue.
"Tom Sietsema, you might want to put this on your to-do list," he raved to the Washington Post food critic.

Pat also met Nats first baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who was excited to get a photo with him. Zimmerman said his wife is a lifelong News4 fan. Pat got Zim to sign his cowboy hat.
“Tell your wife she has very good taste — she likes me and she married you,” Collins joked.
Back in D.C. for Game 3, Pat dropped in on some pregame parties outside Nationals Park and passed out NBC4/Telemundo 44 shark hats to fans.
