I went to my first Washington Nationals game of 2012 last night. Stephan Strasburg was pitching last night, so I was excited to watch him. I also learned that the Nationals’ other shining star – Bryce Harper (who is still playing AAA baseball, but is technically on the Nationals roster) and I share a birthday. Which means, yesterday we were both celebrating our half birthdays! Happy half bday Bryce!
We actually got to the game earlier than we normally do and ended up being able to buy a big beer for $5 (they are $5 all the way up to the first pitch, who knew?)!
I made good on my promise to myself and had a half smoke from Ben’s Chili Bowl with chili and cheese on it.
I insisted on getting my picture taken with Screech (no, not from Saved by the Bell).
And we watched the President’s race. Teddy did NOT win again…
The Nats beat the Astros and currently sit in first place in the NL East. Keep it up, guys! We already scoped out the seats we want to try for our next Nationals game!
