    Aahhh? Could be . . . thats why they have me making a living as far away from Wall Street as possible . . . but I beg pardon for making it sound such a nobel cause . . . for, that was not me intention. I merely meant to exclaim how it might be perceived. Perception and reality so oft . . . are confused.

    I attended a game at Nats Park in May 2009 for the O's/Nats Interleague matchup.

    I loved the place! The food was great, the PNC club was excellent!!

    The seats in the field level were amazing, wide and very comfy

    took the ballpark tour earlier in the day, one of the best I have been on and i have taken quite a few.

    Can't they put some kind of roof over it to make it blend into the park. I've never seen anything like that. That was the one thing that stood out to me while watching the game.

    What I don't get is that opening next to the batters eye? It looks like maybe it's used for storage or something. It really looks terrible. Couldn't they have some type of roofing that would expand the grassy area?

    At first I thought is was a bullpen, but it's not.

    I'm not sure what it is used for on an everyday basis, but I believe that at the first game (when president bush threw out the first pitch) that is where the secret service parked their SUVs.

    Ive only seen him a handful of times, as I dont really go to watch BP all that much, but he doesnt really physically knock anyone over, he just likes to stand in front of them, or put them in a position where if a ballplayer threw a ball into the stands they wouldnt be able to get past him to get it. Almost like he was boxing them out, which was unfortunatley very easy to do at shea with metal bars every 4 seats, if he was in front of you there was no way to get out until he caught his precious baseball.

    I absolutley cant stand him whatsoever. Ive seen plenty of stupid fans in ballparks everywhere, but never anyone with the blatant disrespect for every other fan in the park that he has. Switching the caps and whatnot is pathetic, but it doesnt bother anyone else, but he continually positions himself in a way where he intentionally blocks out little kids from being able to get balls thrown to them, and when he fails at doing this, he simply steps in front of them to catch a ball that a major leaguer threw to them. Never once realizing that the average person wont spend an entire season trying to get a ballplayer to throw a ball to them, and the ONE ball that the kid would get would be the memory of a lifetime.Then during the game, running around, standing in front of sections that arent where his seats are, blocking the view of everyone, only so he can sprint around every time a foul ball is hit. Once again never thinking about how some kids life would be affected if he just stepped aside and let the kid catch the ball coming right to him.

    Has he ever knocked over a little kid or something, and then have the kid's father light into him?

    No, I don't live in the DC area. As a baseball fan, I did make sure I watched it on TV (MLB Package). I would have liked to have been there as a fan of the history of the game.
    That sounds like a valid excuse, just like those that have to be at work. With the economy in the state that it is in, I wouldn't want to miss work if my job depended on it.

    I agree that our attendance has been down, but there really aren't too many people that care for Randy Johnson. I myself went to Tuesday's game as I much prefered to see Lincecum pitch. I didn't have much company that night either.
