Nats home opener in T-minus…

The Nats are playing their 2006 home opener today against the Mets. Tickets are still available, and I’d wholeheartedly recommend blowing off work today and going out to the ballpark. It’s a perfect spring day, and I fully recommend being outside in it. Get on down to RFK, and take one of those swank Express Trains that Metro is running today.

Pitching matchup isn’t much to look at, Bannister vs Ortiz, but with the way the Nats have been playing (and hitting!), today’s game will definitely be worth seeing. Of course, the Mets are our new gang rivals after the craziness in New York last week, and Pedro’s on the mound tomorrow, leaving me to wonder if the Nats are sharpening their spikes for the rematch.

Vice President Dick Cheney will be tossing out the first pitch, after which he will shoot the umpire with quail shot. Be prepared for a bit of a line at the park as the Secret Service will be there making sure that no one else brings a shotgun into RFK.

See you at the game!

    Ya know, if Cheney made a regular practice of shooting lawyers, umpires AND spammers they might get back to double-digit approval ratings…
