Well, okay, I was there only in spirit, but still...! (Not to be confused with Chelsea who I heard was there for real to see the action - I'm really quite jealous....) But I did watch the USA home opener for Major League Baseball between the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves in Washington, DC this afternoon. It was a heck of a game, with Zimmerman's 9th inning 2-out walk-off home run over the right center field wall as the perfect ending to the Nats first game in their new home. I can't wait to go see a game there someday, with the spectacular views of the DC landmarks from various places all over the stadium. I hope Chelsea gets back to posting soon, because I wanna hear how it was watching President Bush throw out the first pitch (even among the boos there, Chels, I still heard your cheering!) and the amazing job done by both starting pitchers - minus the 1 error, 26 in a row sat down by Tim Hudson and the Braves' bullpen between the final out of the 1st inning and the walk-off homer by Zimmerman.
