3rd Place at K, Looking North-Northwest (see more)

So, the faithful are streaming toward the ballpark as we speak. Although the 55 M cam showed the upper decks pretty empty with about 90 minutes to go, Channel 9 (already on the air with its coverage of the mass) gives a better view of the tens of thousands already inside. (48,000 people are expected.) How's everyone faring, either trying to get out of the neighborhood or into it for work? Or is everyone just staying home? And, for those reading this later today who went to the mass, how did your trip go?
In other news, my Ballpark and Beyond column this week is yet another one about stadium parking, taken mainly from my Monday night post about ANC 6D's muted reaction to parking and traffic issues (along with the Zoning Commission's approval of having additional lots built in Southwest if landowners want them). I also tossed in a quick roundup of the private cash lots springing up.

I left the condo at appx. 7:30. It was a sea of humanity in the north entrance of the Navy Yard metro and had to wait for it to clear a little before I could get to and through the ticket reader, but all-in-all, not bad. When passing through L'Enfant Plaza, the platform on the other side was p-a-c-k-e-d as I have never seen it before. So glad I was going the other way!

I decided to walk to work instead of fight the metro crowd on the platform at Navy Yard. I'd be getting on while they were getting off, but still figured it'd be a little bit of a hassle.

A friend transfers to the Yellow line at L'Enfant and said it wasn't too bad at 8:15.

Judging from the 55 M Street camera, it looks like it took a whole lot longer to clear the Half Street entrance after the mass today than it did after the game on opening night.

My non-telecommuting colleagues on M Street reported no problems getting in to work today.

My experience mirrors the first poster, except I went Navy Yard to L'Enfant at 6:30 in the morning!

I am fortunate to live near the ball park and work at L'Enfant Plaza, so I walked to work. But living 2 blocks from the Stadium has only made my parking situation better. Since the City zoned my street, it is virtually empty. Also, no traffic issues for me. I have been pleasantly amazed...
