Merry Stras-mas!!!

Jeff and Allen Strasburg game 3.jpgBeing the unfettered baseball junkies that we are, we left the RSBS keys with the interns and headed out to Nationals Park on Friday night.  We had to see Stephen Strasburg for ourselves.

And this is what we learned:

President Obama has balls… showing up in a Sox hat

Allen hates the wave

Fair-weather Nats fans are led by a massive group of IBM consultants who can’t keep their mouths shut during the game

Allen hates IBM consultants who can’t keep their mouths shut during the

Stephen Strasburg’s ears ARE that big

Chili Cheese Half Smokes from Ben’s Chili Bowl = Good.  The day AFTER Chili Cheese Half Smokes from Ben’s Chili Bowl = NOT so good.

Friday night games at Nats Park always end with a kick@ss fireworks show

Allen hates fireworks

Merry Stras-mas!!!

    Sounds like it’s just not Allen’s time of the month. He should plan his outings more carefully. : o
    The Mets will be there 4th of July weekend. I’m smelling DC road trip!
    I love those running Presidents!! Those guys are hilarious! I have a fetish for mascots. I have pictures with 23 major/minor…and counting.

    We learned that you sat in seats 8 and 9 and AL has this ‘battery low’ look when his picture is being taken, and as Jane said “Strasburg’s ears are BIG?” I thought it was his head too small…

    Mike — You ain’t a kiddin’… try sleepin’ on the dude’s couch!
    Jane — They are HUUUUUUUUGE. Stick around, you’ll learn lots 😉
    Peter — Al’s battery is always low… so I hear.

    ahhhahahahhaha XD so funny!

    I noticed his ears too! LOL i thought i was the only one hahahahahah XD

    Crazy how all the Nats fans are increasing! It’s the power of one person. So much power to bring people towards the ball park 🙂 Well at least he’s doing well! 32 K’s in 3 starts must’ve broke some kind of record!

    Emma — Something tells me you actually watch the game though and don’t blab about your job the whole game in a voice considered too loud for even outside. That was Al’s gripe. I gotta agree with him there.
    Mimi — Yep, it was a full ballpark. They need as much boost as they can get.
    Mike — They scare Al as well.
    Prince — The ears play a part. I don’t know how or what, but they do.
