Playoff celebration turns to tears for Nats fans

Washington Nationals fans celebrate a historic day: the franchise's first playoff game at Nationals Park, but leave disappointed with an 8-0 loss.

"I've been waiting all my life [for this]," says Gaithersburg resident Mike Bucci, who says he couldn't sleep last night. He got to Nationals Park when the gates opened at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012 because he had a standing-room-only ticket. Here he reads his book while waiting for the game to begin.
