A Washington radio station, 106.7 The Fan, is encouraging Nationals fans to post videos to their Twitter account (@1067thefandc) about what "Forget You, Philly" means to them.

It has been three weeks since Phillies fans were blacklisted from the Washington Nationals ballpark. The Nationals started a "Take Back The Park" program, which allows only locals (from D.C., Maryland, and Virginia) to pre-order tickets to certain Phillies-Nationals games.

Videos submitted to The Fan's Twitter account are accompanied by a FUPhilly hashtag to enter ranting Nationals fans into a contest to win tickets to a Nationals-Phillies game during their May series.

According to CBS D.C., the first 100 entries automatically win two tickets, while the best video gets a grand prize of four VIP tickets and four passes for batting practice.

It doesn't come to a shock that the The Fan's "FU Philly" contest excludes anyone from Pennsylvania from entering. They too only allow submissions from D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
