And the Stadium Rises Up

Do not think the DC baseball stadium is fiction. Do not believe there is wait. Do not dream of altering its course.

The stadium is here, rising up from Southwest DC, just south of the Navy Yard Metro Station. Rising up slowly but inexorably towards completion.

The stands are growing up, out every day. The field, still a pit, gives a berth for cranes and workers. Yet, you can feel the view.

It will be grand, it will face north, you will see the Capitol. Or you may not. Tickets will not be free, food, drink will not be cheap. Money, much of it, you will need.

Me, I’ll just enjoy the view, the construction view as the stadium rises up.
