If our family could live at National's Park in the summer time, we totally would and we would be happy doing it. We love the atmosphere, the food, the general Americana-ness of baseball, the president's race and of course, we love our Nat's players. Not to mention there is something so relaxing about watching baseball. Actually, baseball is just a laid-back kind of game. After all, what other sport can you snack on sunflower seeds and chew tobacco products all while playing it professionally.
We generally only make it to 3 or 4 games a year but, last week, as luck would have it, we went twice. We even got to stay for the fireworks show Friday night. But, the most exciting thing of all was when the Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder, Ender Inciarte, threw us a game ball, which of course immediately made the Diamondbacks our second favorite team. Atley was the lucky recipient and he was overcome with joy.
