Minnesota vs. Washington, Saturday June 9, 2007
Washington 3 - Minnesota 1, Win Levale Speigner(2-2), Loss Johan Santana(6-6), Save Chad Cordero(8)
This is a big place. Not as bad as I expected really, perhaps my expectations were super low. It was much nicer than a closed Skydome or Tropicana field. Much brighter, it seems some of the natural daylight from outside creeps in so the ceiling is pretty bright. So I guess it helped that it was sunny outside pretty much the whole game. Plus the improved turf is nice as well. I thought it was cool. Big crowd, 39k, was also impressive. Also a great game since the Nationals won. Brad, Kaisa, Miranda and Maya went with me to it. We had a good weekend altogether hanging out with Brad and Kaisa. Plus the game Friday night to see the St. Paul Saints was very fun. Minnesota isn't so bad, I'll be back, perhaps even before the new park opens in 2010 or 2011.
