    Still Alive... and watching baseball

    April 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    So... I'm not dead, but my phone is, which has meant I couldn't upload anything. Makes life difficult, but I'm working on a solution.

    In the mean time, I will slowly try and catch up...

    Today was Capitol building, Capitol library (which had maps, I like maps), but pictures on my phone...

    I also watched the Nationals lose at baseball with Katie, she is hooked now.

    Baseball, beer, and the Fourth of July

    July 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    There were no museums in our plans today because we were going to begin our Fourth with the great American pastime. A good ‘ol baseball game!

    We walked to the already busy metro and didn’t have to question if we were on the right line because the train was packed with Nats and Sox fans alike! In fact, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it into the second train because it was so full!

    We arrived at the Nationals Stadium around 10:40 and the game was due to start at 11. Brad bought a Nats hat and shirt because, honestly, if you weren’t wearing red, white, and blue you were sticking out like a sore thumb! You may not agree with their gun laws, president, or tariffs, but you kind of had to be in awe of the rampant patriotism today. There was a guy wear a shirt that had the Constitution written on it!

    Anyway, we got our bearings and got our beverages (two beer for $30!) before sitting in our section (109). It was hot (33c) and we were in the sun, but there were a few clouds and a breeze which made it bearable for the first two innings. By then, we were quite sweaty, so we walked the concourse to cool down and scope out lunch options. They had cooling fans stationed around the stadium, which certainly provided relief! Being traditionalists, Evan and I had Nathan’s hot dogs at the game while Brad opted for crab cake tater tots (a delicious choice, btw). We made it back to our seats just as the game got exciting! Our section was full of Sox fans, so we were fortunate that the Sox took the lead because the people around us were very excited about that!

    During the 7th inning stretch, the cast of Hamilton sang God Bless America, we all sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame and two presidential mascots came out and danced. It was pretty great! Unfortunately the Nats could not get it going today and the Sox ultimately triumphed 3-0. However our section didn’t mind a bit and celebrated the victory!

    We thought our ride back might be crazy, but it wasn’t too bad and we managed to get back to our hotel to cool down. The sun has worn us out these past few days, so some AC and water was needed.
