Brawl at Nationals’ Party?


Matt Drudge (yes, I’ve taken my grain of salt) is reporting a brawl at the unveiling of the DC Nationals’ new logo. Apparently the Green candidate for mayor tried to break up the event and instead found himself on the receiving end of some whupass.

[Update] The Post now has it as well:

The gathering was preceded by a brief protest of the deal Williams brokered with MLB to bring baseball to Washington. District resident Adam Eidinger, 31, stormed to the podium on stage and yelled, “This is a bad deal, people,” before the microphone was turned off. Eidinger remained on-stage yelling before several officials — including District Councilman Harold Brazil (D-At Large) — wrestled him off-stage. He was led to a back hall by security, where police spoke with him.

“I said free speech,” Eidinger said after being escorted away from the event. “It’s a half-baked deal, a rip off. They know it.”

All in all, a good day for DC Baseball!
