I am a fan of the straw. The girly-girl in me loves that I can skip an extra lipstick application when I have a straw in my drink. The clumsy girl in me loves that I am less inclined to spill down the front of my shirt when I am sipping from a straw. I assumed most others felt the same way about the straw, though I would understand if their reasoning did not involve lipstick or a clean, dry shirt. I guess I was wrong. The nice people at Nationals Park have decided that, unless we purchase the souvenir cup with flexi-straw, that we do not need a straw with our beverage. We needn't worry about spilling our beverage as we do the mid-row shuffle to our seats in section 305, nor should we worry about things like backwash or side spillage (when you tip back too quickly and get that fun trickle of soda down your cheeks). Nope. We don't need straws. When I asked the kind gentleman at the condiments counter why there were no straws, he simply said because they don't have them at FedEx Field. I blame football fans.
