Let’s Go Nats

Dad and I went down to the Nationals season opener last night at their brand-new ballpark. The park gets an A+ from me. They did a really good job, and the food is light years better than RFK.
Most importantly, the Nats won a thriller with a two-out bottom-of-the-ninth walk-off home run from Ryan Zimmerman. The place went absolutely bonkers. Hey, we’re in first!
Here’s a brief photo montage starting with Pop:
The scoreboard is roughly the size of Delaware. This picture below is taken during the opening ceremonies when they unfurled two huge flags. I snapped this right as an F-16 did a flyover, as you can tell from everyone looking up. I tried to take another picture of the plane, but F-16s are very, very fast. By the time I did, the pilot was probably back in the hangar drinking beers.
See that little tiny red dot stepping off the pitcher’s mound. That’s Bush.
This is the view behind us.
