Some will say that baseball has divided the region. The Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals, who are in different leagues and don’t even play each other lest they both make the fall classic, seem to be mutually exclusive fandoms.
At least, that’s the premise of NBC 4’s latest promos. These videos, completely bereft of #NatriolesMagictude, depict a DMV split into two factions, each side leery of the other. The schism affects the playground, dog walks, even the TV room.
Readers: this is fiction. I love NBC 4 (Jim Vance is the man), but they are exploiting your fear! Do not fall victim to the false choice of Orioles and Nationals. At least not yet.
Let #NatriolesMagictude pervade all things. Wear the shirt. Support your neighbors. Let the spirit of goodwill and mutual support wash over October. For now.
Great commercials though.
