Just Like a Dream
Holy Cow! I'm not sure where to even start with this one. Last night I had a heck of a time getting to the stadium in time for the game. Keep in mind the one thing that kept me going this week was knowing that I had a weekend full of baseball coming up. Friday seemed to drag on very slowly, but I was on the metro by 5:30 to make it to the game in plenty of time. I had a bit of a rough ride, made it exactly one stop before the train sat on the tracks for 30 minutes! Boy was I a nervous wreck. Finally, the train pulled back into the station and I decided to forgo public transportation and drive myself to RFK at the tail end of rush hour. I drove like a maniac and only missed the first inning. Someone was smiling down on me! Of course leave it to the Nats to score for the first time this season in the first inning when I'm not there. However, for like the fourth time this season, the girls got great free tickets, and I was welcomed by an already excited crowd. Its a great feeling to walk up the stadium and hear cheers from almost a mile away.
On that note, let me just send out a big thank you to all Nats fans in attendance last night. The cheering was fantastic, the girls and I were very proud of the way the crowd supported the home team. What an exciting game and a great win for the Nationals. For a great write up of the game check out Miss Chatter's post.
After the game the girls and I were excited for the win, and decided to head out to celebrate. We went out in the district for a few drinks to unwind, just the three of us. After about an hour in the bar I went up to grab our last round. When the bartender moved aside I spotted Chad Coredero sitting at a table by himself! Being a big Chief fan, and not wanting to miss such a great opportunity, I went over and said hello. I congratulated him on his third save of the season and told him I was glad to see him back in action. He was very generous and talked to me for about five minutes. I left thinking what a nice guy! What a great way to end a night after a great win! We are very excited for two more days of baseball this weekend.
