Allegedly a bunch of cubs fans are trying to get tickets to the NLDS games at Nats Park. Really hope the Brewers knock them off now lol.

Without a doubt, the Cubs fans will be out in force but obviously it won't be like the regular season games against the Cubs. And that's why I never sell my extra postseason tickets to someone I don't know.

True dat.    I don't get the whole "fan experience" thing.    I've never had a bad day at the Park.

Bathroom lines were crazy long last year. Of all the suggestions, adding porto johns is the best one.

It's all about timing.    There's a BR or two that is out of the way.    Plus, I've found listening to C & D in the middle of an inning ain't so bad.

The snotty elites in the N&S Club have shorter lines...  :D

win the freaking games and the fan experience will be fine

Win or lose, if it takes 3 innings to get a beer, I’m not going to be happy.

I'm planning on bringing enough cash so I don't have to wait in line and will just get beers from the vendors on foot. I normally like to get the better beers, but I think it'll be too much of a hassle for this game.

I've never noticed that many opposing fans in any of our playoff games. A few here and there sure, but nothing noticeable at all.

D.C. is a bandwagon city and the fans ALWAYS come out in full force for playoff games regardless of the sport.

There will probably be more Cubs fans than those of the teams in prior playoff years.

That opening day phillies thing was a bit on the edge.

You just liked the first pitch.  I probably would have too but I was stuck outside with 25,000 drooling cromags.

They are rolling out some different food items for the playoffs. Is it just me or do none of these things sound appealing?

Not just you.  I wouldn’t buy any of those things.

Half-smoke biscuit sounds great.  I'd kill for one right now.

A curly W would sound tasty. Three of them.

But only two at home. Need two home wins and one in Chicago.  No need for a game 5.

Not what I'm looking for at the ballpark, not what anyone I know is looking for, must be catering to the Cubs fans flying in.

Show me the porta johns.

Problem is they never seem to want to give you more than seconds on those...

I'm a sucker for those heart attack sandwiches.  The footlong one looked edible too.

Just saw a comment on Twitter that the two garages are reserved for VIPs. The other team lots are sold out. The only parking available on line is Park Whiz at $50 for the gravel lot under the bridge.

Gunny Highway predicts a clusterfreak getting in and out of the park.

I'm surprised so few spots are left already.  Think I might take my chances over by Fort McNair and walk, or bike to valet.

The other thing is that a lot of the local residents are starting to offer gameday spots.  It's too early for many of them but they'll be waking up and offering soon I bet.

I've seen street parking on Fort McNair mentioned on several sites, there will be more people circling than spots available. As much as I hate to pay I want a spot waiting for me when I get there.

The DC Circulator stops like 2 blocks from the ballpark and it takes you to Union Station where you can park for like $15 and also not have to deal with metro or the neighborhood traffic.
