Opening Day

Not to be confused with the official start of the MLB regular season.

But this is the day my journey starts…here. The day I begin to open up about my love for baseball, ballpark eats, and THE Washington Nationals!

I’m a newbie in this blogging world but I’m excited to share my experiences with you and I’m looking forward to seeing how this thing evolves.

I’m hoping you’ll join me for this ride. And a ride it will be…full of extreme highs and the biggest let downs. This sport isn’t for the weak at heart. It can progress slowly yet keep you on the edge of your seat. It’ll test your patience and your body’s sympathetic nervous system, through 9+ innings and then send your ass on what seems to be the longest walk back to the Navy Yard metro station…to wait on an overcrowded platform. Let me tell you, when walking away without a Curly W, the wait on that platform for the next train is waaaaay too long.

But baseball will also have you coming back. Coming back for one more win. For the double play. For the sweep. For the home run. For the who just called up from the Minors. For the no-hitter. For 161 more games. FOR THE NL EAST!

I know what some of you might be saying, “Baseball? Really?!”

Yesssssssssss baseball! Just watch…I’ll show you 🙂

Here are just a few of the amazing things happening season:

  • Spring Training 2018 | …in progress.
  • Opening Day 2018 | April 5 | vs. New York Mets
  • MLB 2018 All-Star Week | July 13 – 17 | Right here in WASHINGTON, DC!!!

Welcome to The Show!

Hey ya'll! It's me...Nika! I'm a native Marylander now residing in Washington, DC. I love the Washington Nationals and good food. When I'm not at the ballpark, I enjoy checking out new spots to eat, hiking, reading, arts and crafts, and cycling.
