So after 18-plus hours of leaving 128, arriving at Union Station in DC, arriving to the hotel via cab and finally getting to the Verizon Center, here I am one day later somehow not dragging. Postgame videos from last night are being uploaded, but for now here’s a view from the hotel lobby that I am staying at in Alexandria, Virginia — a suburb of the nations capital.
Will post videos from last night before heading over to the National Mall for some sightseeing today.
First video from last night featuring Tim Thomas. Hoping to get Brian Rolston and Daniel Paille up before heading to the National Mall.
Update, 11:48 a.m.
Brian Rolston postgame video:
Don’t want to keep Ben Woodward of Hockey Independent waiting too long so looks like I’ll be heading out to do some sightseeing. Will post some pics from Instagram later…
So after a day of walking through the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museum, here I am back at the hotel with another update.
Here’s a pic of the outside of one of several Smithsonian Museums in the area:
A few pics inside the museum as well from my iPhone
And last but not least…
Hopefully I’ll have one or two more updates before the day is all said and done.
One more update for everyone. Here’s my view from Nationals Park from the Nationals’ 1-0 win over the Houston Astros Tuesday night.
For comparisons sake to Fenway — outside of the several empty seats throughout the ballpark on this mid-April night — the sight lines are much better as really there isn’t a bad seat in the house, even from the nosebleeds. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this place fill up with the Nats being a young and up in coming ballclub.
Bruins practice at 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Kettler Ice Plex in Arlington, Virginia — the Caps practice facility — in preparation for Game 4 Thursday night at the Verizon Center. I’ll have a few updates for day three of the diary, to go along with a couple of posts from practice, including one on Nicklas Backstrom’s one-game suspension for cross-checking Rich Peverley at the end of Game 3. Until then…
