Get Your Natitude On The Cheap: Nationals Offering Gear 25% Off

It's July 24 and the Washington Nationals still sit atop the NL East division with an incredible record of 56-39.

As we creep closer and closer to the MLB stretch run it is becoming increasingly likely that the Natties will make the playoffs.  Should that actually happen this entire city will probably be covered with curly red, white, and blue W's, which means if you don't have some kind of Nats' apparel you're going to be all left out.

Womp womp.

Don't let that happen.  

The Nationals announced today via Twitter that for three days only their web shop is offering 25% off selected summer gear including shirts, flip flops, and shades.

(ASHBURN, VIRGINIA) – Dick Rabkin spent over 15 years working as a patent and trademark attorney for Ideal Toy Company, which manufactured and distributed toys, dolls, and games beginning with the Teddy Bear in the early 1900s.  “I had toys and games all over my office,” said Rabkin.  The Ideal Company’s largest competitors were Hasbro and Mattel before the company was dissolved in 1985 a few years after being purchased by CBS.  Some notable toys produced by the Ideal Toy Company include Mr. Machine, Chrissy, Betsy Wetsy, the Magic 8-Ball, and the Rubik’s Cube.
