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 targeted at 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.
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.
