Ladies Night One Week From Today

Something new for Ladies Night this year! As you are probably aware, the red tent on top of the parking garage no longer exists, so this year’s ladies night will be held on the concourse in the shady picnic area behind right-center field. Shady is important given the recent spate of heat waves! Limited tickets [...] Continue reading

06-04-11 Baseball On The Barn feat. BBQBusDC

Food trucks are all the rage for downtown DC workers, and after having the NatMobile out once last season, I thought why not a DC food truck for baseball on the barn? I am ever so grateful that BBQBusDC agreed to come out and serve their fantastic BBQ last night for attendees of Baseball On [...] Continue reading

If the Nats beat the Phillies and nobody is there to see it

Did it really happen? YES! [After reading this, check out the series preview Q&A I did with Enrico from The 700 Level] I totally did not want to go to the game last night and was silently praying for a rainout and the game to be called before hauling myself downtown. See, two days after [...] Continue reading

Injury bug

Well, poop – I guess I at least caught Ryan Zimmerman’s last game before he went on the 15 day disabled list. Saturday night, Zimmerman re-injured an abdominal strain sliding into 2nd base that first bothered him during spring training. Huge bummer! Things seem a bit touch-and-go with new first baseman, Adam LaRoche as well, [...] Continue reading

Should have taken the train

Was the up and back to NYC in a day trip worth it? No, not exactly. I probably should have taken the train like I initially thought. You already read about my misadventure on the beltway barely into the excursion. Nothing else quite that exciting happened over the remainder of the trip, but the next [...] Continue reading

Hope I’m not in some Sixth Sense world

PSA: Please look over your shoulder before changing lanes, particularly in congested fast-moving traffic! Also (and this applies to me as well), take the 2-second following rule seriously. I still honestly have no idea how this wasn’t worse yesterday and am thankful to be alive. Let’s just say Jeep Wranglers may be built for ruggedness [...] Continue reading

Road trip!

Never turn down an offered Nats ticket, right? Even if the particular game is a 5 hour road trip north? Ok, sure, why not?! I can be spontaneous! All electronics are charged, so I’m packing my camera and iPod and hitting the road for a solo round trip with a game in the middle. First [...] Continue reading
