Get Your Red On!

I attended my very first Washington Nationals game tonight.

The Nats played the San Francisco Giants and were doing really well. Here's Ryan Zimmerman up to bat in the 2nd inning:

At some point during the games, the Presidents' Race is run. 4 guys in Presidents' costumes run around the field. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington (who both look oddly alike), Abe Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

And George wins!

Teddy didn't like coming in second and tackled George. The crowd went wild!

Here's one of my favorite sights at the game: at the base of our seats was this sign...

I know they mean foul balls, but with the Nats losing tonight 10-5, it could be rotten tomatoes. Duck!

It was great fun, and a nice cool evening after all these 100+ days!
