So the day after my dad and I went to see the Pirates, we ventured to Washington DC to see the Nationals take on the Braves. It was the second of two games that day (apparently, due to a technicality, it was not considered a doubleheader) because the first game was postponed from Monday after the shooting at the Naval Yard in DC that is just down the street from the ballpark. The atmosphere was a bit somber, but a good time was still had. Because my parents live pretty close to DC, we took the Metro in a bit early and took a look at the World War II memorial which wasn't built the last time I was there. Pictures and more reminiscences after the jump.
