When I used to park, I tried to avoid whiz.  Are there any whiz-free lots?

This is DC. I’m sure someone was whizzed in all the lots.

The truckers are protesting at the Dept of Transportation this week. Hopefully they blast their horns during the games.

This will spur yet more investment in self driving vehicles.

Probably the same people who are investing in self driving trucks who lobbied for the new regulations on truckers.

Wasn’t there a trucker protest like 5 years ago? If memory serves me, they really freaked up the traffic on the beltway for a morning rush hour then disappeared. There was like 12 trucks and they just drove slow for a lap around the inner  loop.

Guessing most truckers are more focused on paying the bills.

Have the Nats released any information regarding what time the gates open today?  Last year they sent an email out announcing this as well as a 20% discount on food and beverage purchases during the first hour after they opened as well as other pregame activities.

They say they do. Some staffers are much better about enforcing it than others.

Two hours early. Communication from the team has hit an all time low.

Amen to that. When the United and the Wizards tell fans what to wear they hand out tee shirts. When was the last time the Nats gave out red shirts? They're all about the one pursuit of more cash.

"Nationals WONK"?    Those were "sponsored" by AU.

Will they run out of cups, beer, or food by the third inning?

That's for Opening Day - ran out of hot dog buns in the fourth inning at our first-ever home opener in 2005, and maintaining this fine tradition ever since.

I got a Ravens towel for a Monday night game when they hosted the Pats and B-more lost. I brought it into the office and used it as a doormat for a week or so, then, when no one took it, threw it out.  I hate towels. The only good towel is the Terrible Towel because they started it. 

Handkerchiefs, on the other hand, are nothing but class, but you only waive those at the end of The Game and when they play "Bright College Years."   My eyes tear up at the thought.
