Live From RFK

Dan Steinberg here. Not sure how many WaPo staffers are live blogging this Nats game. Probably several dozen.

Here's my contribution thus far: Capitals D John Erskine walking into an office building on K Street, Marlins opening day starter Dontrelle Willis wandering through the parking lot wearing headphones and signing autographs (including one for a middle aged man delirious with excitement who urged me to go get an autograph, because Dontrelle was really nice and friendly), a bunch of people in some sort of military uniforms practicing "Mony Mony" and Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" on the field, a drum kit outside the front gate, a few lonely ticket scalpers, a brief pyrotechnics test on the first base side, some people grilling meat in the parking lots (which I thought didn't open until 11, guess I was wrong), and a Fox 5 reporter in sunglasses asking early arriving fans how just gosh darn thrilled they are to be out at the ballpark on Opening Day.

Oh, and now Stan Kasten is wandering out to the logo during BP. He and Bowden are standing right next to the military band people, who are practicing "Mony, Mony" again. I would pay them all the money in my wallet if Bowden got on the drums and Esskay took the mic. There seem to be some syncopation issues. Either that, or the singers are from the Chris Sligh school of rhythm. Bowden and Esskay could do better.

If anyone has any ideas about what I should do for the next 150 minutes, go for it.

Go to the third row of the press box and try to figure out exactly how you're supposed to be able to see the field from there.

Or, try to figure out why the second row must be ten feet higher than the first row. Do Svrluga and Loverro need extra head room?

Maybe you could head over to Canal Road and figure out who painted over Hoya Saxa on the entrance to Georgetown with "Roya Saxa." Didn't work ...

My advice to you... start drinking heavily.

Go find the freaking Presidents and interview them!!

Also, maybe check in with how people are finding the concessions this year.
