Practical Information No. 2

Scott Watson

Having advised that the stadium shifted from Pepsi products to Coke products (offering Coke Zero), I thought I'd share more good news.

As a "big man," as a "Tall and Husky Section" shopper -- hell, as an overweight suburban buffoon -- I worried that the stadium, with its new seats, might not be ... accommodating. I shouldn't have worried.

The seats accommodated my ample kiester just fine.

I've sat in three different sections. Each offered a cup holder, ample leg room, and a comfortable spot to deposit my assets. There seemed to be a bit less *shoulder* room than there was at RFK, which I had a hard time understanding, since the folding seats themselves seemed wide. But there was a hint of "packed sardines" that took some getting used to. This was especially notable in our Opening Night snow gear, but I felt that way on Wednesday as well. But they didn't skimp on seat room, and for that I thank the Nationals.

Maybe they thought the MeatHook would be joining me to watch some games . ...

I'm surprised Scott Watson didn't write this. He's usually good for two posts a day.

Holy crap! I meant that as a joke! Sort of. Gotta love the prolific bloggers.

Keep up the good work Scott.

The lack of shoulder room is really bad in my section (lower deck) and takes away from the enjoyment of the game.

RFK has much better seats. Our new ones are small and uncomfortable, there is less room between the rows, and the rows are longer.
There's a major disruption whenever anyone, even a child, tries to enter or exit the row. Welcome to Sardine Park. I guess the Party Line is that all the new parks are like that so get used to it.
