Nats Get New Mascot, Kind Of

So the Nats have somewhat of a new mascot.  Sure, it's the same old Screech.  But he's different.  He's older, as the Nats pr folks and that guy Clint explained at the unveiling today (as reported by D.C. Sports Bog hero Dan Steinberg).  He's like a teenager, so he'll be cooler and everything.  And his hat is removable, which will be a relief to that one guy who, in any Washington Post Nats-related chat, chimes in about how disrespectful it is that the old Screech's hat was affixed to his head, which made it impossible to hold his hand over his heart during the National Anthem.  I hope I never meet that guy.

Anyway, you'll note that the new Screech is tall and thin.  

That's Smiley Gonzalez in there!
