Capital Weather Gang's NatCast has 'Rain gear may be advisable in case there's a storm. Seek shelter if you see lightning or hear thunder. Otherwise, it's on the warm side so stay cool' - 85-90 at first pitch, 80-85 by ninth inning, 50-60% chance of rain.

Metro trackwork for this Mets series weekend: http://www.wmata.com/about_metro/news/PressReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=5309

Metro weekend track work August 17-19, 2012

Buses replace trains between Silver Spring & NoMa-Gallaudet U; Normal service levels on Green, Yellow lines

Metro's rebuilding efforts will continue over the weekend of August 17-19, 2012, with scheduled track work on the Red, Orange, Blue and Green lines.

Red Line

On the Red Line, buses will replace trains between Silver Spring and NoMa-Gallaudet U stations to allow for tie and insulator renewal, structural work, platform reconstruction and fiber optic cable installation. Red Line trains will operate in two segments throughout the weekend:

•Between Glenmont and Silver Spring every 10 minutes during daytime hours and at regular weekend intervals at other times
•Between NoMa-Gallaudet U and Shady Grove every 10 minutes during daytime hours and at regular weekend intervals at other times
Free shuttle buses will replace trains between Silver Spring and NoMa-Gallaudet U stations. Three stations -- Takoma, Brookland and Rhode Island Ave -- will be closed. Fort Totten Station will be open for Green and Yellow line service only. Customers using shuttle bus service should allow 50 minutes of additional travel time. Customers traveling between Fort Totten and Downtown DC may wish to consider using Green or Yellow line service to avoid delays.

Orange Line

Orange Line trains will single track between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly stations to allow for platform reconstruction work. Throughout the weekend, Orange Line trains will operate every 20 minutes in each direction. Customers should allow about 10 minutes of additional travel time.

Blue Line

Blue Line trains will single track between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road stations to allow for repairs to the "floating concrete slabs" beneath the rails. Throughout the weekend, Blue Line trains will operate every 20 minutes in each direction. Customers should allow about 10 minutes of additional travel time.

Green Line

Green Line trains will single track between College Park and Greenbelt stations to allow for track upgrades. Trains will operate at normal weekend intervals. However, every other train will begin/end service at College Park, rather than Greenbelt.  Only customers traveling to/from Greenbelt Station should allow up to 15 minutes of additional travel time.

I think I will be there Sunday, currently with an extra ticket. Right now I have two pairs of tickets for Sunday's game, one pair that I can exchange.

Be good to catch up you TT and Hammonds and anyone else hitting the loft for a bit of pregame.

I'm going to shoot for noon, a bit early I know but I'm expecting a big crowd and congested parking. 

Think I'll wear my red Klej jersey, it's back in fashion now and is slightly more unique than a Stras, Harper, Zimm or Guzman jersey.

i'm probably rocking the red z-man jersey as i have been for most sunday games.  he's on fire, the team is on fire and my record at the park wearing that on sundays is on fire.

multiple beers will be consumed on sunday.  we are getting there early to tailgate and enjoy the nice weather (hopeful).  plus there should be a great crowd full of natitude.

blue, i can finally buy you a beer ... plus MDS and I have been trying to meet up for years ... but i avoid him at all costs because our conversation would turn into a "who's a better team: orioles or marlins" debate.

About $40 or so via a corporate discount. You are welcome to the phone but you'll have to take the work calls that come along with it. It is a Pre 3 AT&T, never released to the public. Sorry, paycheck not included.

nothing set in stone yet.  either way, i'll look forward to it 8)

i don't know if they want to push JZ up another day after his workload.  but the braves do struggle against lefties.

Picked up a late ticket for today.  I'll be the dork in the boston hat and blue shirt that looks like the designer chopped off his ear when he said, "let's see if we can get Greg Norman to put his name on it."  The guy I think was Vinnie Van Chisox, I think.  don't expect to be hanging too much in the Loft.  Tix are in 302, handicapped area.

On the rotation issue, last i saw from Kilgore is that they are inclined to pitch  JZ Monday, or maybe try to sneak him extra rest, because his shoulder has been giving him problems lately.

:panic:

Been good mojo this year for the Nats. . . 

Also, I've been following them since before you were born (unless you were born prior to 1967).  I'm not going to quite when they absolutely bite.
