Saturday Night at Nationals Park

Sunday, May 25, 2008

DSC_9672We went to our first game using my company’s season tickets. The seats are great, just past first base. The results of the game weren’t too great - a 5-2 loss to the Brewers. Luckily, I’m an Orioles fan, and I don’t really care too much if the Nats lose. Not many others seem to care, either - 30,029 was the announced attendance, just shy of ¾ full. For a beautiful Saturday night over Memorial Day weekend, I expected a full house. There were a ton of kids there - the lines for ice cream were crazy, but it was easy to get a beer. The rest of the pictures are here. They’re probably only really interesting to me, but you’re welcome to look at them, too. DSC_9707I’m looking forward to our next game - the Cardinals are in town, and we’ll get a good look at Albert Pujols at first. Always nice to see a future first ballot Hall of Famer in the prime of his career. And we saw Charlie Manning’s major league debut. He gave up a hit and struck out two, so I imagine he’s pleased with that. Finally, we made a return trip to Ben’s Chili Bowl, fantastic as usual. For $7, the veggie chili cheese fries are a deal by ballpark standards. Going to the stadium and skipping Ben’s is just crazy.
