Opening Night at Nationals Park - Before the Game
March 29, 2008
I should be sent back to the minors for my lousy coverage of this most momentous night. Nevertheless, here's a few impressions of the first part of the day. But, when the team took the field, and my 4 1/2-year odyssey of watching this stadium be born came to a conclusion of sorts, I put away the damn camera and watched the game.
Amazingly, by 8:10 pm, the vast vast vast majority of fans had made it through security and into their seats, and the Center Field Plaza was showing just a trickle of activity.
