Gratuitous Baseball Trivia Observation


The next time somebody in a bar bets you that you can't name the first batter to hit a grand-slam homer in Nationals Park (and note to everyone, it's Nationals Park, NOT Nationals Stadium, dammit), you'll be able to say proudly, "Why, Jim, everyone knows it was Felipe Lopez of the Nats on April 24, 2008 against the Mets!" (Suck it, Gary!)

That oughta be worth a ten-spot at least.

Sorry - I seem to have baseball fevah.

Well, twenty years from now you can sit in a bar and ask "When was the last year that the Nationals had a winning season series against the Mets?" and know that it's a trick question.

Cuz it won't have happened yet. ;-)

The Young Master and I will be attending a game at Nationals Park on the either May 2 or 3. Any suggestions on the best place to sit at a reasonable cost?

Nope, haven't been yet. But I'm not really sure there is such a place. We just ordered tickets for a game against the Reds in early August. Five tickets, plus food & drink, plus transportation, plus miscellaneous - there's a reason we only go out once or twice per year as a family.
