Take me out to the ballgame

As late spring soon turns to Washington summer heat and humidity and the sweet singing of birds is replaced by the constant drone of a/c units and the splashing of kids at local pools—“Marco…Polo”, here’s what we have to look forward to on the local sports scene.  The Nationals, the Nationals, and the Nationals.  Get out to Nationals Park when you can.  Wear an old t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops.  Drink a cold craft brew (if you can afford it) and sit way up high in the 400 sections, preferably a night game, and simply kick back and enjoy the atmosphere.  Oh, and while you’re at it, pay attention to when Bryce Harper comes to bat.  You’ll know it when you hear the old Frank Sinatra staple, “the best is yet to come…”  This is a special player having a special season so enjoy it.  Absent any blockbuster movies this summer, Nationals Park is the place you want to be.  Fans can lament about the Caps and Wizards coming up short…again, but alas, despair not.  We’re all being set-up for the championship that will come to this city.
