Where were you sitting? We were in 134. I was surprised that there weren't any F Dan Snyder chants. One guy in our section tried to start one but nobody joined in. There were several attempts to start the wave which all failed, thankfully.

I was in 135. I saw on Twitter that there was a freak Dan Snyder chant but I didn't hear it. The Defenders crowds are a lot more rowdy at night, too bad there is only one night game this year.

Nats hanging in there at 18th out of 30, ahead of the small market teams like KC, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Cleveland who have lower ticket prices and are off to solid starts.  Might begin to slip as the summer goes on, but could be a lot worse.

I guess 25k or more stayed for the concert.

here's a pretty good crowd shot from the 3B side, which was was full as the 1B side for the show:

The Nats are doing a lot of really good specials this year to reward fans in attendance. Maybe even better than the very early 2010’s.

Just a good reminder this ownership group hates every one of us fools who buy tickets and concessions that are overpriced by even MLB standards. That hate all of us fools. They know how to reward fans, they just think we’re soulless ATMs who they bilked for over a decade until they realized unless they gave a half ass effort this season they’d finish dead ass last in attendance.

Maybe I’m naive and other winning franchises never do fan specials. But I doubt any other franchise has their fan specials so closely correlated to how terrible or not the team is.

I was happy to have only spent $2 at the park yesterday after cashing in my $15 food and beverage credit that they sent to everyone a few weeks ago.

33,998 yesterday. Feels right. Place was packed. Long beer and concession lines before the game.

34,282 today. Braves pack ‘em in.

I saw that Saturday was the busiest weekend day for metro ridership since the WS parade.  The Nats game and the pride parade were the big draws.

I'm not bad at karaoke.  I'll text Mini Me, think my "Just What I Needed" can pull in a lot more people than the Rizzo bobblehead.  Not a high bar, and of course wouldn't expect him to pay for the flight, or even the Uber from DCA.  There can't be a hell worse than trying to get an expense reimbursement from the Lerners.

It's the classic "Lipstick On A Pig" strategy...

And it's working given attendance this year for a mediocre team. The buildup of the area around the park has created a large base of fans who can easily attend games.

Maybe they can pack the house for every game if they start a beer snake too...

Defender games are a blast to go to.

They were better last year. The night games were a lot rowdier and more fun. I saw some speculation that the league might not be back for next year, if so it was fun while it lasted.
