Road Trip Idea: Altoona

After Monday’s announcement that Stephen Strasburg will make his debut with the Harrisburg Senators on Sunday, April 11th against the Altoona Curve, I imagine that many of you went searching for tickets.

Bloggin’ in the Rain

Cherry Blossoms: It’s too bad those cherry blossoms in left field can’t bloom all summer. Luckily, they do arrive just in time for Opening Day. This year, the Nationals will partner with the National Cherry Blossom Festival to celebrate the annual two-week DC festival and commemorate 98th anniversary of the 1912 gift of cherry blossom trees from Japan. “The blooming of the cherry blossoms and
