Yesterday afternoon we went to the Nationals game against the Baltimore Orioles at Nationals Park. It was a little hot at the beginning, so we were dreading that a little bit. But then the rain came, which wasn’t great. We stayed at the stadium for a little while, but the game ended up getting postponed, which was too bad. Despite the rain, it was nice that the group got together and got to know each other better. There’s a lot of new faces that I’ve seen here, so it’s been cool to meet these guys and become friends. These camps are all about meeting new guys and competing together. After the game I just went back to the hotel, and since I was pretty tired, I just got a good night’s sleep.

It rained so much at the Nats game that we all had to hide under the pavilion.

I woke up again this morning and had a nice breakfast with the guys. We then had a good practice, but I think it was one of the harder ones we’ve had so far, especially for the defensemen. We learned some new battling techniques, some new systems and what to concentrate on in the defensive zone, which of course is really good for us. After practice we left to have a little bit of Chipotle and then I had a little nap to help recover for the rest of today.

We have testing this afternoon, then after that I think some of us might go check out a movie, which will be nice. I want to go see 22 Jump Street, which looks pretty funny. Today’s the final day of the hard, hard stuff, so it’ll be nice to get that over with and get to the games. We’re pretty excited right now and just waiting for the games tomorrow.
