Jen had four season tickets to go see the DC Nationals vs SF Giants last night so she asked us along. I haven't been to a baseball game in years, last night was an excellent night to go back. Not only was the weather gorgeous, but season seats are definitely the way to go. Up to the bottom of the 2nd inning, you can get free food at the private area (alcohol extra). When we got there we stuffed our faces full of hot dogs, popcorn, crab cakes, beef flank, salad, nachos, and cookies. Then we headed to our seats a couple of rows RIGHT BEHIND HOME BASE! Those seats also get free food/drink through the game (minus beer and cotton candy). Servers just walk through the aisles with drinks, hot dogs, soft pretzels, popcorn, snacks, ice cream and hand them out when you ask for one. I haven't eaten this much junk food at once in a long time.
Baseball is probably one of the more slow sports (disclaimer: my opinion only!) but it's much more interesting to watch it live while munching on junk and chatting with friends. We also got to see Barry Bonds, one of the most hated players in the league. Everytime he stepped up he was booed loudly but ironically also the most photographed player of the night. Everyone was hoping to catch him swinging another home run (no luck last night).
We must have been good luck since the Nats broke their 6-game losing streak last night, 4-1 against the Giants. That night was a lucky night for a lot of fans since a large number of baseballs made it into the stands.
I guess a great thing about Jen working for Clark Construction is that she gets these sports tickets fairly often (baseball, hockey, basketball, (rarely) football) and they are great seats. Now that she knows we had a good time, she'll be tossing more tickets our way in the future.
