Morgan: This makes me sick
So you've probably heard by now that the Washington Nationals have clinched a playoff spot and will have a shot at winning the World Series this year.
Does that make you feel as sick to your stomach as I feel?
When the Expos left Montreal for Washington, D.C. after the 2004 season, Expos fans everywhere were in mourning. But at least the Nationals were playing lousy baseball since they opened in Washington.
Not anymore. Now they're in the playoffs. If they don't win the World Series this year, they'll have another chance somewhere down the line, while Expos fans have only memories.
If I sound bitter, it's because I am. No Expos fan I know of have gotten over their move.
Maybe one day, Major League Baseball will return to Montreal. And that's one big maybe. And to those who say, 'Get over it', I say I can't.
Baseball has always meant a lot to me, either playing or watching. Going to a big-league ballgame is an experience like no other.
And the sad fact is that Montrealers no longer have an opportunity to see MLB in our town.
Get over it? It's not going to happen.
