The Nationals' New Stadium Looks Rather Spiffy


I've been to two new stadium opening days in my life — Safeco Field and Pac Bell (now AT&T) Park — but I wish I could have made it a third in D.C. on Sunday. There's nothing like that new-stadium smell; even the restrooms are minty fresh. Following the jump, a few photos from the Nationals' Opening Day, with guest appearances by our 16th President; a pretzel shaped as the letter W that actually looks like poop; and that mascot I hate more than any other, Screech the Eagle. Although on Sunday the costume was probably occupied by a Secret Service agent.

Thanks to Pete Austin and Nats 320.
