Opening Day?

New, comments
So, I'm not sure when opening day is anymore, but I'm watching the Nats try to close out their first win at their new park, and it feels pretty darn good. (update: The Nats just surrendered the lead on a passed ball in the 9th) I was actually supposed to be at this game, but I was called out of town on a work trip at the last minute, so I'm watching from my hotel room in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Tomorrow's game thread should be up early. Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch the game live due to work, but whatever happens will be news to me as I'm going to try to avoid all information until I get back to my hotel room and can watch. But stop by and chat for a bit on the game thread if you get the chance.

If you're reading this, you can see that the format and layout of the site have switched over to SB Nation's new and improved format. For more info, read the post directly below this one. I think the new format will be great for the site, but of course we welcome all feedback.

(update: whoo! Ryan Zimmerman just won it for the Nats in the bottom of the 9th with an oh-so-sweet HR to left center)

Finally, congratulations are in order. Our very own excellent writer Matt Gaul has been offered a job as the Red Sox beat writer for a Florida newspaper, the Florida-Boston Times. Matt will be on the road with the Sox throughout the season and will also be blogging the Sox at Over the Monster , the Sox SB Nation blog, but will also continue to blog the Jays here at Bluebird Banter. Congrats, Matt!!
