Sneaking Into the Nats' Stadium

(Photo by Arjewtino)

My wife and I drove past the Nats' new stadium a few weeks back, and I noticed that the gates were open and no security were to be seen, unless they were hiding behind dirt-moving machines. I remarked upon this fact to several people, that if I wanted to, I could have strolled into the stadium and looked for exciting souvenirs, such as empty mini-ice-cream-sundae batting helmets.

Well, Arjewtino was more motivated than I, and he/she actually snuck into the stadium and took lots of photos and put on a hard hat and pretended he belonged and then was escorted out by a kind construction person who didn't bash him over the head with a steel girder.

"This stadium looks like it's coming along," I continued. "Think you'll be finished by spring of next year?"

The worker, a silver-bearded man who carried the air of a foreman, eyed me without saying a word. I nodded my head and looked up at the rafters, trying to appear like an architect impressed that his vision of a major league stadium is finally being realized. I could tell he wasn't buying any of this and I wondered if I could beat him in a foot race.

Sadly, there was no dramatic footrace through the future luxury suites and dugouts and umpires dressing rooms, but the photos are fairly interesting, at least until Arjewtino gets sued and his site gets blown up by MLB.

I like how he's concerned about getting banned from the new park.

I think I was economically banned when they announced the ticket prices, an actual proclamation from the club would merely formalize it.

That's hilarious.

If he doesn't make somebody's local sports wrap, this bog and this world are all for naught.
