IN TYLER WE TRUST: @T_Mo12's 2-out, 2-run single leads #Nats to 3-2, comeback win in Game 1! #NATITUDE (@Nationals)

Do yourself a favor, take Metro to #Nats playoff games. Thanks to @livingsocial, rail will be open. (@ShannonRenee)

MLB: Gallon of gas cost 18 cents last time DC had postseason baseball (1933), $3.82 now. LA to MLB: Where is this $3.82 gas? (@BillShaikin)

#Nats win Game 1 as Matt Holliday strikes out check swinging. 3-2 win. Everyone w/ Game 4 tix is super excited. (@bmcnally14)

My friend and former roomie @marcadelman having dinner at DC restaurant right now. Who walks in for date night? President and Mrs. Obama. (@Derrall)

Let's keep our fingers crossed that DC wasn't joking about that whole "no parking enforcement on holidays" thing :) (@carlyrachael)

Waited 15 min for train too packed to get on. Now 8 min till next. People do commute on Columbus Day, #WMATA. (@kcivey)

Zoning update gets people riled up; one says @car2go is why there's no parking:  on (@ggwash)

RT @HotlineSteve: In a text message to NewsChannel 8, Vince Gray denies he has decided not to run for reelection (@HotlineJosh)

Happy Monday, DC food truck fans! Just a reminder that the 10% tax went into effect today, so prices may be higher :-/ (@foodtruckfiesta)
