Ya'll should. DC is great. Many people don't get past the fed buildings, but DC is really a neat little world outside of downtown. Adam's Morgan, Dupont Circle, U Street, Cleveland Park are all fun places. I've lived in the suburbs on the outskirts most of my life. But when I actually lived IN DC, I loved it so much more. I definitely wouldn't mind living there again.

I protested that stadium. I was living there when the plans first emerged. Despite RFK sucking, most of the DC residents were opposed to this.

it is a great city. i've been to quite a few of the buildings and museums, but i've also been to the suburbs as well, as i've got family who lives all around that area. it is very lovely

DC is awesome

I love Foggy Bottom.

2 hours and 35 minutes until I can watch MSNBC again.

Yes I was. A big one too. My appetite for baseball has dissipated since their departure, however.

When the stadium was packed, and the team was doing well, there was no better place to be, despite the stadium's shortcomings. By the way, the team's retired numbers for Gary Carter, Andre Dawson and Rusty Staub, Tim Raines now hang up in the Bell Centre rafters.

One of the all-time great shames is that their best team ever never got a chance to win it all: the '94 team.

That's an understatement. That was quite a team, and it took me a while to get over the disappointment.

They built it on the Anacostia Waterfront, an impoverished section of the city, closing and knocking down low-income housing and homeless shelters, along with other social services that were located in the area. And the mayor didn't do shit to help them out. He just kept saying how the stadium is going to boost the economy. Whatever.
