Baseball and boating

I found this link this morning as I was checking my email. (Thanks jetBlue -- an offer of items I can actually show some interest in).

Excitations Baseball & Boating Double Header

From the site:

"Batter up! Set your sights on a one of a kind sailing, sporting adventure. You and a friend will begin with a sail aboard the schooner, American Spirit, docked at the DC Southwest Waterfront marina. Bring some beer or wine to enjoy while sailing past our nation's monuments and memorials down to Old Town Alexandria. Return back to the dock right in time for the game, just a short walk up to the new Nationals stadium for a great night of baseball with the Nat's.

Enjoy an exhilarating afternoon of sailing teamed up with the excitement of a Nationals game in their new stadium
Begin by arriving at the Gangplank Marina docks and step aboard the American Spirit
After returning back to the Gangplank Marina, walk the half mile to the new stadium
Grab your mitt and take your seats - exclusive block of bleacher seats put you in the heart of the right field action
Head back to your car or the metro and go home with your memories of an adventurous, sports-filled day"

This is really exactly the kind of neat event I'm hoping will start to show up downtown.

Only if we can lash Watson to the mast like in "What About Bob?"

"Look at me! I'm SAILING!"

Hmm... perhaps "The Goodship Borders" could also make such a voyage...

Would be fun... Will have to check if you can daily-dock at Gangplank.
