It was Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards Night at Nationals Park last night with Caps alum Rod Langway and Bullets alum Phil Chenier. Nats fan James Carville sat down with Clint for a brief interview on the field during pre-game festivites and  then threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Ross Detwiler.

Here are a few photos of last night’s win over the Braves. Most were taken from section 117. Enjoy and feel free to leave comments! Thanks.

    A pity the Nats could only draw 34,000 for what was arguably the most important game in franchise history and against the 2nd best team in the division. By contrast, the Phillies were playing the Reds last night, are 20 games out of first, but drew 45,000 – 2,000 above capacity.
