Jayson Werth Bobblehead
Jayson Werth's walk-off home run in Game 4 of the 2012 NLDS was one of the greatest moments in Washington Nationals history. While we tried to capture his jump into home plate and commemorate it with a bobblehead for our 10th Anniversary season, we were not satisfied with the final product. Therefore, we will be re-issuing a new bobblehead. The first 25,000 fans to enter Nationals Park on Sunday, August 30th for the 1:35 p.m. game against the Miami Marlins will receive a voucher redeemable for the new bobblehead. Fans will be able to pick up their new bobblehead on an offseason date at Nationals Park. In addition, you will receive a special gift for the inconvenience. More information will be available on the vouchers and at nationals.com/Aug30.

Sounds like South Capitol to M Street; left on M Street to Van Street; right on Van Street to lot B (directly in front of you at that point). 

You can't turn left off of South Capitol Street at N Street to get to Lot B.

Gonna try that route myself today...I have always gone down 3 blocks past N Street to the batch plant and made a U-turn to get back onto South Capitol Street going north again.

Would you be taking South Capitol St from the south (like if coming from Richmond) or from the north (like if coming from Vienna) ?

395 to South Capitol to Garage B:



Just make sure you bear to the right after you hit South Capitol, otherwise you'll end up on the underpass that goes below M Street.

Alright, where can I find the bloody mary with meat straw?  This I've GOT to have.

Quote
...At a recent Washington National's baseball game in D.C., meat straws were prominently displayed at a "make-your-own-Bloody-Mary" bar in one of the luxury lounges.

Jonathan Stahl, executive director of ballpark operations and fan experience for the Nationals, demonstrates a meat straw in action, using it to stir horseradish into the Bloody Mary mix.

"As you can see, it comes straight through the meat straw," says Stahl, taking a gulp to demonstrate. "There you go."

The straw infuses each sip with a hint of meaty, umami flavor. And by the time imbibers have finished guzzling the drink, the meat straw is well-soaked in Bloody Mary and ready for snacking. Stahl says they've been a hit.

"We couldn't get them one time, and so people were asking where the meat straws were," says Stahl. "We never have a Bloody Mary bar unless we have the meat straws available now."

Simple. You gotta take the time to remove your mouth from the opening of the flask. Then you can just jam it in there.

Well, I would not really generally do that but for a meat straw I'd consider it.

I wonder if their bloody marys have clam juice in them?     :az:

So ....with Yoga in the park scheduled for Sunday, does that mean they'll have the last game of the season madness on Monday???? or try to fit it in to Sunday?
Never been to a yoga in the park, apparently, you need a 'special ticket' which must mean that my SPH card isn't good enough.

I'm sure the normal stuff will still all be on Sunday and I bet Monday sets a new low attendance for the season. I know they're still doing the jersey raffle like they do every year on Sunday. Watch...this'll be the year I finally win one and it'll be Desmond's :spaz:

Has anyone heard anything further about this? Just curious whether I missed an announcement while we were out of town.

Well, they canned Williams and Papelbon sold his house. I'd say they're in the process of delivering the special gift  ;)

This is going to seem random, but can anyone help me out by naming some of the songs played at Nats Park? The ones that come to my mind are Fall Out Boy's Light Em Up, 7th inning stretch: Take One Me/Friends in Low Places, the pre-anthem music from the John Adams HBO show & of course all the players' walkup music (got that from Nats website)...anything else?

I think they're using Fill Me Up Buttercup for the 7IS song now.

Interesting that the oldest guys on the team, Robinson and Thornton, have the best taste in music.

Thanks. It's been way too long since I've been to a game.

Yup, Flower by Moby. The walkup music is listed on the website but its been harder to remember the other stuff. Trying to put together a playlist to help a friend get through the offseason lol
