There are Worse Things Than Being a Nats Fan

Help us come up with a list of things that are harder than being a Washington National's fan

Apparently, being a Washington Nationals fan is the toughest road to walk in sports, according new rankings from The Business Journal.

The 'On Numbers' series has ranked teams in a range of sports according to how difficult they are to support based on their winning (or losing) records. On Numbers reports:

Baseball’s Washington Nationals Washington Nationals have the dubious distinction of ranking first in our overall standings, which means they’re the toughest team to root for in any major sport.

The Nats came out on top among 122 pro teams, judged on the "principle that a consistent loser is the hardest team to root for."

Surely there are harder things than being a Nats fan:

1) Logarithms.

2) Eating okra.

3) Holidays with the in-laws.

4) Watching the Orioles.

5) Not sweating during the D.C. summers.

6) Insert your list here

Being an Orioles fan is definitely worse. This team teases you with hope for a week, two weeks, maybe half a season like in 2005, then there's nothing left to go to Camden Yards for besides quality beverages and getting on the Jumbotron.

Being a Cubs fan. (It's number 3 on this list, but I'd rank it above being a Nats fan.)

Being a Tea Party Republican knowing you one of the most self-centered and hated persons in the USA.
