We met up with my dad and mom Tuesday night to go see the Nationals. The last time I was at RFK for sports was during the Skins last season there (though I’ve been back for HFStivals), and it was weird seeing baseball there. I was there in the ’80s for some of the old timers games they had, but now they’ve changed the whole stadium around. We were out in left field, and high enough that we could see everything (the same spot but lower at Camden Yards doesn’t give you a good view). Main problem – there’s only one non crappy beer vendor on the top concourse (Blue Moon).

It was a good game. Braves scored in the first inning, then 2 more in the top of the 6th. The Nats got two in the bottom of the 6th, then 3 in the bottom of the 7th. The place really started to rock then – you forget how much noise that many people can make. We left at the top of the 9th – apparently the Braves got one more, but the Nats held out. Getting home took almost 2 hours – much suckiness, especially when Jill’s gotta get up at 5 the next morning.

Still, it was fun, and the tix were only $10. We’ll go back sometime this summer, maybe a last minute thing (plenty of scalpers on the walk from the Metro to the stadium).

  1. I just realized that LJ hasn’t pulled your blog in about 7 weeks. There’s some sort of XML error and I don’t know if it’s on your or LJ’s end.

  2. Very odd. I just looked at the xml page – it seems ok, an RSS 2.0 feed. Do you know what the error is? (I’m assuming you’re a Paid or Permanent Account because it says you can’t create syndication without it).
