If your life has been lacking enough skateboarding dog then the Nationals have an event for you: “Pups In the Park” will be happening on Saturday, May 14th and followed up with two more in the following months. It’s a promotional event, sponsored by the good folks up at My Pet Needs That, and was adumbrated to target dog owners who can’t think of anything they’d rather do than try to get their pooch to hold still through a three hour game involving men throwing around a ball their dog isn’t allowed to go chase. Participants may don their dog with the gear that they can get from https://dog-gear.com and take part in this fun three-hour activity.
Think how different that baseball game would be if they were, though. Oh yeah, I’d be down with that.
It wouldn’t be a special event without a famous guest, so for the first event they’ll have Tillman the skateboarding dog. No word on where they’re putting the half-pipe so Tillman can do some ollies.
Subsequent PitP events will happen sans canine Tony Hawk and will be on Saturday, July 9 vs. the Rockies and Saturday September 24 vs. the Braves.
And before you ask, yes: one of the best things about this gig is often the absolutely hysterical press releases we get sent.
