Come On Down!!

Parking Update: Any Season Ticket Parking Pass for ANY TEAM LOT will be good for entrance to Garage B or Garage C until 2pm this Friday, August 21st, 2009 for The Strasburg Press Conference. That's ANY SEASON TICKET PARKING PASS--no matter the value--no matter the lot--can use Garage B & Garage C as long as you make it to Nationals Park before 2pm on this Friday. Anyone arriving later just for the 7PM Game itself, will have to use their normal Season Pass Parking Lots. Got that?

Pay $1, see Stephen Strasburg being introduced, sit in on a NatsTown Hall Meeting with Washington Team Officials, see Batting Practice and then watch Our Washington Nationals take on The Milwaukee Brewers at Nationals Park.

Well, that's all true. And no, this is not a typo. This Friday, August 21st--COME ON DOWN TO NATIONALS PARK. This should be quite interesting.

Stephen Strasburg will be introduced on the field at Nationals Park at 2PM. Watch the entire event in person. If you have a valid game ticket for that night's game--just show up--you don't need anything else. If you don't as of yet, you can purchase $1 tickets at or at The Main Box Office at Nationals Park right now. That Entry Fee valid for both The Press Conference and The Ball Game. And, between all that you can watch and participate in The NatsTown Hall Meeting and watch Batting Practice of both Our Washington Nationals and The Milwaukee Brewers.

If you have a Season Parking Pass for Garage B & C--those lots will definitely be open for those ticket holders. Our Washington Nationals have confirmed that fact. More parking coming later on an update with the parking situation as it is learned.

And if you can't make it for the 2PM Start--MASN will carry The Stephen Strasburg Press Conference Live.

There is a lot of information to digest on this--so here is the complete press release from the team:

Please ask Mr. Strasburg for me (I have to work) the following: "how many arms would you prefer on your white bronze statue in Centerfield Plaza?" (They are $20k per arm, incidentally, $100k for 6!)

What a choice folks now have - $5 for a foot-long at Subway or for five Nationals tickets. This is truly the beauty of 10% unemployment and 75 losses, respectively. But, beer prices NEVER fall - and they shouldn't, either.

Finally, since Stasburg proudly claimed not to be following the Nationals this season while his deal was pending, kindly ask him whether he regrets the fact that they do not intend to start him this year in the play-offs! (What does he know, right?)

Trust in biting sarcasm. And a slider that has more movement than a kid on AirHeads. All sweet.

How is Nats Express going to work tomorrow?

Will it run before the press conference?

Any information is strongly appreciated!
