Nats Ambassadors: Tough Job, Good Job
I feel sorry for the "Nationals Ambassadors" who greet the Nats Express from RFK every game. They have to walk such a fine line. It's a line that every Nationals Park representative probably confronts at every game.
When the Nats Express pulls up at M and 3rd streets SE, a Nationals employee boards the bus as an "Ambassador" there to greet fans to the new ballpark. They are literally the first face of the ballpark for any first-time visitor taking advantage of RFK's free parking.
But now that it's late May, the bus is usually full of degenerate baseball addicts, many of whom have been to the Park 10 or 15 times. I'm one of them, and sometimes all I want is OFF that bus! A smiling, cheerful employee taking a minute to explain where to go and how to get to the stadium only slows me down and keeps me packed in that bus. And I'm one of the sober degenerates; the tailgaters who got to RFK at 5:15 have even less patience. We can't be a welcome sight to the Ambassadors.
But every bus, for every game, gets a cheerful, friendly, and quick explanation of where the park is, when the buses run, and how the patrons can have the easiest time getting to the game. For a newcomer, the face of the Nats remains a smiling and welcoming one.
Despite my impatience, I can only say, "Job well done!"
