I have a $400 Delta voucher that expires at the end of the month, and was going to use it to go to an NHL game...but that doesn't seem likely.

I believe it is down to St. Louis and Atlanta. I've been to St. Louis a couple times and i'm familiar with the city, but have never been to Atlanta.

So who else wants to witness Nats history with me?

(If there is a better place to post this let me know, still new to the forums)

Tickets are so much cheaper on Stubhub for STL then here haha.

I guess the nice thing is you could buy tickets for either now and get refunded for the team that doesn't make it.  Would just have to book a pretty last minute flight though....

Yup I saw that on Stubhub. Tickets to both locations right now are under budget, but I imagine that will change by Friday.

Does anyone have any info on Atlanta? I know most of the places that are ok and not ok in STL, etc.
Should I expect any hostility if I wore Nats gear to either stadium? Been to a Cards game but that was just going because I was there.
Been to a Flyers game in Caps gear, so as long as it's not like that I will have a good time. Wasn't even that bad there, mostly insults about the Redskins(who I don't like)

I attended the Sunday night game in Atlanta on Memorial Day Weekend. Braves fans were stereotypes of southern hospitality: everyone I sat next to engaged me in conversation, despite the fact that I was wearing a Nats hat and an Expos shirt. They said some nasty things about their own team, who were on a 7-game losing streak at the time, but they weren't rude to me or to the other Nats fans there.

I stayed in downtown Atlanta, and I took a shuttle from near the state capital building to the stadium. It was fine.

But that damn chop... I think my head would explode.

I feel like such a non-Nationals fan for it, but I just can't make it.  Wish I could
