Nats Fans Crash Opening Night


In the clubhouse.


Just when I was beginning to get down on Nats fan, this blog saved the day. It's called "Crashing the Nats New Stadium on Opening Night," and it has just one entry plus a lot of Photobucket shots, but it's easily the best thing I've seen written about Nats fans this spring.

The short version: two guys with $39 tickets get into the club level, walk into the President's Club, eat tenderloin, sit with the A-listers, get on the Jumbotron, pose for photos with guys dressed like gorillas, go back into the President's Club after the game, get random rich people to buy them drinks, and then find their way into the press room, the clubhouse, the batting cages and the deserted field, leaving with a rosin bag and some muffins for their trouble.

Maybe not quite as good as sneaking into the Giants' victory parade, but not too shabby. Maybe there's hope for Nats fans after all.

(Note: I can't vouch for the veracity of the tale, although the photos certainly appear legit, and I certainly don't endorse rampant trespassing, unless it's in the service of free muffins and nice beer.)


Calling for the lefty.

Are those pesky Mottrams up to their old bag of tricks?

Although I though said tricks were only used for GW athletic events.

Remarkable. POTUS presence? Bah. This apparent security is as sound as the NO levees, the fed bailout of BS, and Chilabi's whitepapers on Iraq.

Did those guys realize when they took the photo of the ticket that they forgot to blur out one area with the section and seat location?

Oops.

I had a couple buddies that did just about the same thing minus walking on the field. I guess security wasn't nearly as tight as you would have expected.
