I can't get the highlights to play for me, just as I couldn't get the free online MLB TV preview to work on Saturday. The new Microsoft video player must be glitchy. Imagine that. :halo:

Oh my goodness!!  I had no idea that was you!!  That's so funny!!  SO, I will ask you the question I had when I saw "you", what was up w/ wearing the gorilla suit?

I was supposed to get free parking, but ALL the police on the street around the stadium were extremely rude and completely UNhelpful.

Perhaps it was the gorilla suit? Wink


The real problem was the Nationals don't bother to tell people buying those pricey tickets which lot they're supposed to park in.  I wasn't wearing the gorilla suit when I arrived.  It was in a bag and I had to pass through security and the metal detector... (and later, a GEICO Caveman.)  The guard going through the bag said, "It's a gorilla suit... and a mask."  I said, "There's no way I'm going to get COLD."  I told him I was sitting behind home plate and he said, "You're going to be on TV."  So I said, "And you'll be the only one who knows who it was."  So I gave that guy a memory of that day.

When Air Zimmerman said last season that he was going to see the Nationals in Toronto, I told him to wear a gorilla suit, so we at WNFF could pick him out.  That made it MANDATORY for me to wear it, especially since I was sitting where ESPN could easily see it, live.  It was the most high profile place and situation to ever do something like that.  I intended to wear it for the whole game, but I was hot and sweaty and hungry from running to catch the express bus at RFK.  (They have waitresses who bring you free food in that section; no standing in the anticipated long lines.) 

I got on the Jumbo-tron, but I can't believe that wearing a gorilla suit will NOT get you on ESPN.   I haven't seen a newspaper or Internet photo of it yet... Hmmm, kimnat WORKS for a paper... And EricasNats KNOW peoples... So many people took photos that one's got to pop up someplace.
