Take me out to the ballgame

Went to RFK Stadium in Washington Saturday night to see the Nationals and the Blue Jays.

It's good to see baseball is back in D.C. after a 34-year absence. And while I was sitting in last row of Sec. 517, next to a very young child who cried -- and cried, and cried some more -- because it was too loud, here were some observations.

1. Good to see enthusiasm when the Nats took the field and throughout the game. I wonder if it would be the same if the team was, say, 11 games under .500.

2. To the singer of the Canadian national anthem, it's "O, Canada," not "Whoa, Canada."

3. I know the Wave has not been seen in Washington. It's 20 years old. Stop doing it. Please.

What do you think? I'd like to know.

Does Canada allow medicinal use of marjiuana? Then it would be "Whoa, Canada".

PS: parents should remember to leave the very little ones at home for the ballgame. That's money for another beer apiece, ya know. ;)
