In related news, the Nationals open the season at no. 1 on many pre-season Power Rankings. They are also the popular pick to win the World Series, again. (Of course, they didn't even win their 1st playoff series last year. But they are likely to make the playoffs again and give it another shot.)

The CaBi bike corral is only available today. (It's possible they would have bike corrals for any playoff games in the fall. But not for most regular season games, other than Opening Day.)

There are 4 bike stations within three blocks of Nationals Park. On days without the bike corral, they tend to fill up quickly before games start and empty quickly after the game ends.

"Bicycle riders can cheer. Nationals Park is bicycle friendly, with over 250 bike racks all around the ballpark.

For the convenience of our bicycling fans, Nationals Park offers a FREE bike valet located in Garage C at the corner of N & 1st Street, SE. Access to the valet is on N Street just left of the entrance.

The valet will be accepting bikes two hours before game time and will close 1 hour after the last inning."

I haven't tried it yet, but I've heard nothing but good reports on the Nats bike valet. I sincerely hope the Nats do make the World Series this year, then lose in a spectacular seventh game to my Orioles.

Bike Valet is outstanding.

Just watch that this year you have to go through metal detectors - and well my bike bag is FILLED with metal.

Yep. Totally agreed. I've used it scores of times. I''ll be dropping my bike off there in a little while. Go Nats!

Other changes for this year: The new Captain's Cove bar (sponsored by Captain Morgan), a Sam Adams IPA exclusive to Nats Park, Chipotle, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chick-fil-A, Club 24 luxury suite, a new team store (opening in May), a "patriotic" kiosk, new turf on the field, and new theme nights (including a Star Wars night later this year).

I am NOT drinking a Nats park exclusive beer from a Boston brewery. You can literally see Bluejacket from Nats Park. DC Brau made a special beer for DC United. The park regularly serves Three Stars and a couple other DC breweries. Having your park exclusive beer come from Boston is inexcusable.

And the park is sponsored by a Pittsburgh bank! Boo!

The beer isn't the only beer at Nats Park. Sam Adams is merely choosing not to sell that particular beer elsewhere besides Nats Park. Or so they are saying.

I don't object to Sam Adams side of this - I'd make the same deal if I were in their position. I'm just saying the Nats should have looked locally for a unique park beer. Which is what I'll do when I'm at the park. Hopefully the local beer stand still has <Homer Simpson drool>Three Stars Two to the Dome</Homer Simpson drool>
