If you don't have anything nice to say...

OK, the Nationals. RFK stadium. That's right, 'stadium' not 'park.' That's really most of what needs to be said. It's a dismal park, and we were glad it was pre-Camden rather than post-. It needs to be dismantled.

RFK Stadium was the location of our only home team loss of the whole trip. It was also the first time we became aware there was any controversy about the lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame". "Let me" vs. "For it's" "root root root for the Dodgers". Why "Let me"? Is there some possibility of mind control within the stadium such that you would not be allowed to root for your team? In DC and Baltimore (Salty Balty, coming soon) this alteration was made to the lyrics. It was strange.

We got very near a foul ball but did not come up with it once more. The game was dull. The Nationals looked really bad. The only nice thing I have to say about RFK is their hot dog wins best hot dog of the trip. More and pictures soon!
