The Brewers are going to be missing Stephen Strasburg this series, which is a good thing for Milwaukee.  Somehow, Strasburg has managed to actually live up to all the hype that was placed around him, which is unbelievable to me. 

Washington D.C. was founded July 15, 1790 and is home to nearly 600,000 people.  Until the 23rd amendment passed in 1961, D.C. residents were not allowed to vote in presidential elections.  The Nacotchtank Native American tribe originally lived in the area.  The area where Washington D.C. was built was chosen by the president of the time, George Washington, and was originally called the Territory of Columbia.  The city has a total area of 68.3 square miles.  Washington D.C. is tied with New York City for the highest percentage of parkland among high-density American cities.   "The White House" wasn't the official name of the White House until 1901.  The cities baseball team isn't very good, but neither is Milwaukee's.
