Opening Night 2008

It was a glorious opening night for the new Nationals Park.  My son and co-author here on SBY watched the game at Gators, a nearby sports pub, at least through the fourth inning when we packed it up and headed back to the house to watch the rest of the game.  Franchise third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, from right here in Virginia Beach, blasted a walk off homerun in the bottom of the ninth to fend off the Braves.  Of course they did it in typical Nats perilous style, surrendering the lead with two outs in the top of the ninth on a passed ball.  I had almost finished ranting and raving about how the Nats were going to lose this game stupidly and might finish with a hundred losses this season when Zim hit his shot.

You gotta believe 😉

    What A Game Yesterday!!!!!!!! I watched the whole game and was cheering for the Nationals to win.

    I just heard that the nationals have Ray Olmedo and signed him to a Minor League contract. He is an excellent player and I am happy to see he is with the Nationals. The Blue Jays did not play him much when he was with the team.
