October 10 – Gangnam Style Presidents

Natitude

Lucky, lucky me! I scored some tickets to the Nationals’ FIRST HOME PLAYOFF GAME (thank you Lori and Chris!).  The stadium was so full of energy, it was awesome. Madison and I were able to take some time off work to go (boo day games) and we waved our red towels, proud to represent the district.

Unfortunately, they lost.  But, Teddy won! He came out with the other presidents and performed Gangnam Style for the stadium.  Then mid song, he broke away from the group, and with his head start, won the race.

October 3 – Teddy for the Win!

Teddy won the President’s Race!

When I woke up this morning I had no idea of the events that were to unfold.  Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a day for the history books! I just so happened to be at the last Nationals regular season game (big thank you to Lori and Chris!) and was honored to be a spectator as Teddy BEAT George, Thomas, and Abe for the first time ever in the Presidents Race.  Teddy had a losing streak of over 500 games, and people in DC (Obama, McCain, Devine) were starting to talk about WHEN Mr. Rough Rider would ever win.

It was so nice to see Lori in DC! Love having visitors. Dude.  I need to comment on the weather.  We’re back to HUMID and hot, which means more mosquitoes.  My legs were destroyed today! I forgot the tape trick until it was too late.  My right ankle looks like it doubled in size since yesterday. Little buggers! Rooting for fall weather again…

PS: Nats also won.

July 18 – GW at the Nationals

“GW at the Nationals” 

As a GW alumna, I was invited to a Nationals game with a reception beforehand for some networking with other GW alumni.  We almost didn’t go because there was the most intense storm since the one that knocked out power for a lot of DC before the game, but just before the pre-event, the skies cleared and it was safe to walk to the metro.  When we arrived in SE, we noticed it didn’t even rain there! So crazy that this super intense storm only hit part of DC. This reminds me – the same night I saw a photo on Instagram of a storm over Manhattan – you HAVE to check it out.

Anyways – we had a great night – the storm cooled it down a bit from the 100 degree weather we had earlier in the day, and we were able to reconnect with some GW faces which is always good.   I just love summer nights at the stadium. Le sigh.

PS  -Another great outcome of the night was I started following Teddy on Twitter.
