Take Me Out

I finished off Staycation 2013 in grand style today, taking in the Nationals’ home opener with my brother and my friends Megan and Jim. It started out a gorgeous, warm, sunny day — perfect baseball weather — but even the wind that blew in enough of a chill to require an emergency run to the merchandise stand for a wildly overpriced jacket couldn’t cool off the Nats, who won 2-0. (Two solo home runs from Bryce Harper… I think that kid might have a future!)

A few photos from the day…

After giving out all of the 2012 awards (and believe me, there were MANY), an outfield-filling flag was brought out for the National Anthem.

The usher for our section - who is probably in his 70s - very gamely agreed to dance with a very enthusiastic (read: possibly drunk) twentysomething  during the break in the game when they played "Boogie Shoes."

First win of 2013!

    Glad you had a successful opener!! And, you even got a quality souvineer (at least I hope the pricey new jacket is “quality”). 😉
