Bring on the MARC Series (Except on Weekends)

MARC Series (Except on Weekends)

The Washington Nationals have already won their division. The Baltimore Orioles have already clinched a playoff berth. And people are already starting to talk about how wild it would be if the two teams met in the World Series this year.

While we're reluctant to jinx either club by speculating too much about that sort of thing before the regular season even ends, here is an official declaration of how Washington City Paper would refer to such an event. A Baltimore-D.C. matchup would not be the Beltway Series; for one, you can't actually get from one city to the other just by sticking to either I-495 or I-695.

Instead, should the Nats and the O's meet in the postseason, we'll call it the MARC Series.

Except during any games played on the weekend. Then it'll just be the Baltimore-Washington Parkway Series.

    THE B-W PARKWAY SERIES FITS BECAUSE YOU CAN GET TO BOTH BALLPARKS VIA B-W PARKWAY (ROUTE 295) FROM EACH BALLPARK.

    YO MAD MIKE THE B-W PKWY SERIES WOULD MAKE FOR LESS WEAR AND TEAR ON THE BANDWAGON GIVEN IT'S AGE AND THE TIME IT SAT BETWEEN PLAYOFF APPEARANCES.

    BESIDES THE MARC ONLY RUNS BY CAMDEN AND DOESN'T RUN NEAR NATS STADIUM.

    LET'S NOT GET AHEAD OF OURSELVES.
    FIRST THINGS FIRST BRING ON SAN FRAN OR THE A.T.L.!

    You can't get to both ballparks via the B-W Parkway if you don't own a car.

    In the event of a Nationals-Orioles World Series, expanding MARC service on game days will give baseball fans a viable transit option. Let's hope the Maryland Transit Administration develops a contingency plan.
