“Dear PoPville,

I have recently found out that the Nats will not be selling individual tickets to opening day to the public due to “overwhelming demand”. You can still, however, purchase a multi game plan and get them. Between what they did with World Series tickets and this along with other questionable ticket policies I’ve decided I’m no longer going to play their game. I’ve been to every opening day they’ve ever had and unfortunately this year will come to an end.

That being said, I still plan on gathering with friends for both a 40th B-day party and to watch opening day. The hard part is picking a place that will not only be open at noon or so on Thursday but will also be fun and maybe even serve food. I’ve done a little research but am sort of coming up short. There are a few decent options, but nothing stands out right now. I was wondering if we could crowd source this?”

How about the new Walters right outside the stadium?

From an email:

“The concept will be opening an outpost called America Eats at DC United’s Audi Field! America Eats will feature signature menu items including Pimento Grilled Cheese, Sloppy Joe, Half Smoke with local sausage, creole mustard, sliced tomato, and pickled onions, and French fries. The outpost will open for D.C United’s first game of the season against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday, February 29th and will be open for the remainder of the season.”

Speaking of hometown pride, thanks to Pierce for passing on word from Sports Business Daily:

Scott Van Pelt‘s midnight “SportsCenter” will move to the host’s hometown of DC in August.

“I’m reaching out to Trouble Funk,” he said. “I’m trying to figure out how we can get a Go-Go version of the ‘SportsCenter’ theme. I want to have that in the bag of tricks. I want to be able to come back from commercial and have Go-Go music playing. That will say to anyone who understands that we’re back in the District.”

From the Burgundy and Gold Owner Dan Snyder:

“As this season concludes, Bruce Allen has been relieved of his duties as President of the Washington Redskins and is no longer with the organization. Like our passionate fan base, I recognize we have not lived up to the high standards set by great Redskins teams, coaches and players who have come before us. As we reevaluate our team leadership, culture and process for winning football games, I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead to renew our singular focus and purpose of bringing championship football back to Washington D.C.”
