NatsFest Photo Recap

Rock the Red

After the fact, the big takeaway from yesterday's NatsFest was who wasn't there (Bryce Harper) but so far as I could tell, it didn't matter much to the thousands of folks "rockin' the red" at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. I've covered my fair share events at the Convention Center (including Awesome Con) but I've yet to find a more passionate group of fans in one place. What's next? A World Series?

There was tons to do, especially for kids; and if yesterday's turnout was any indication, the nation's capital may soon be trading in its burgundy & gold (Hail to the Deadskins!) for anything red (including the Caps, who enjoyed another sterling win at a sold-out Verizon Center last night.) Hats off to Ted Lerner, Mike Rizzo and reigning NL Manager of the Year Matt Williams for giving DC sports fans something to cheer about.
