I'm actually not finished yet (still need to caption them), but for those of you who can't wait a moment, here's way too many photos
from today's first-ever baseball game at Nationals Park. (There's also five new bigbigbig panoramas
, too.) The pretty brisk day started off cloudy, got sunny as the game got underway, and ended up with a bit of rain here or there by the end, but on the surface it seemed to go well (not like wildfires suddenly erupted in right field or anything). I'll link to the media coverage later, but enjoy the photos in the meantime. Tomorrow I'll be doing a full Exterior Gallery update.
Captions are added, so enjoy the photos
. The Post says
: "After years of political debate and turmoil that almost caused Major League Baseball to pull out of Washington, the city has a stadium that seems just about ready for prime time. Sitting behind home plate, there was little to see that didn't look finished."
Here's MLB.com's take
on the day (and another on the food
): "George Washington University scrimmaged St. Joseph's on Saturday afternoon, and while the stadium may not have been finished, it was good enough for the fans and Nationals president Stan Kasten." AP has a story
being run all over the country as well. The local networks have had some stories, but they aren't posted on the web.
