I'll give lastobjective first dibs on this, but if I don't hear from him by noon, I'll give the tix to whoever contacts me first.

The tickets have been claimed. Diamond Club fell through so I'm traveling solo, I'll post when I get there if anyone wants to meet up.

Definitely going today. I would consider cutting out early for a little pregaming if anyone is planning on getting there early.

I'll probably get there early so I can drink copious amounts of beer.

but of course it wouldn't be a proper Nats weekend without Metro track work - Orange and Red lines affected this time (http://www.wmata.com/about_metro/news/PressReleaseDetail.cfm?ReleaseID=5330):

Metro weekend track work September 21-23, 2012

Buses replace trains between Grosvenor and Friendship Heights; single tracking on the Orange Line

The ongoing effort to rebuild and upgrade the Metrorail system to provide safer and more reliable service will continue over the weekend of September 21-23, 2012, on the Red and Orange lines only. The work will begin at 10 p.m. Friday and continue through system closing on Sunday.

On the Blue, Yellow and Green lines, service will operate on a regular weekend schedule with no planned track work this weekend.

Red Line

Buses will replace Red Line trains between Grosvenor and Friendship Heights to allow for rail renewal, fastener replacement, grout pad rehabilitation and leak mitigation.  As a result, Red Line trains will operate in two segments: between Shady Grove and Grosvenor, and between Friendship Heights and Glenmont. Between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Red Line trains will operate every 10 minutes. At other times, trains will operate at regular weekend intervals. Customers traveling through the work zone should allow about 30 minutes of additional travel time. (Note: On Friday and Saturday nights, the last Red Line train from Shady Grove to Grosvenor will depart at 1:58 a.m., 32 minutes earlier than normal, to allow for shuttle bus connections. On Sunday night, the last train will depart Shady Grove at 10:58 p.m.)

Orange Line

Orange Line trains will single track between East Falls Church and Ballston for tie and insulator renewal, and between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly for platform reconstruction. Throughout the weekend, Orange Line trains will operate every 24 minutes. Customers should allow 15 minutes of additional travel time.

In route although it already fairly late. Plan to grab a couple cans and swing by the loft anyway.

I'll be there tonight.  235 Row A.

It sucks though because I'm bringing the son who's less likely to stay for the entire game and we WILL clinch that playoff berth tonight.  I hope he wants to stay to celebrate.

Capital Weather Gang's NatCast for today has: 'A light jacket might be nice for late in the game, but they don't get much better than this. Enjoy and cheer like you mean it!' with mid-70's at first pitch, mid-60's by ninth inning, 1% chance of rain.

It got a bit nippy as the evening progressed last night...maybe I ought to break out this old Expos sweatshirt I got on one of my trips up there in the 1990's.

I'm going tonight and will probably wear my old Nationals sweatshirt from 2005. It's probably been 2 years since the last time I wore this thing to a game.

The proper technique is to grab a beer from the Porch and bring it up to the Loft if you are a microbrew guy, and to grab cans from the Scoreboard Walk and bring it to the Loft if you are a volume guy.  Same goes for gals.  me, I'm a compromiser, and will nab a Lienie or a Peroni in the Loft (or a dogfish in the Porch if the line isn't bad).

going tonight - section 208.

Works for me (both ways) - sadly the Pilsner Urquell seems once more to have disappeared from the Scoreboard Walk.

16 oz Shift Pale Lager or Torpedo IPA cans ice cold out of your carry in bag is the proper technique.
