What would you expect a four-and-three-quarter-year-old to say at the end of a four-and-a-half-mile hike that she just finished using her own two feet? “What a wonderful day,” Sofi announced when we walked past the old Tavern (that I was wishing was still a tavern) at Great Falls National Park.

On Saturday, June 18th we joined Outfielder Roger Bernadina, Shortstop Ian Desmond and many more at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center at National Harbor.

650 fans attended the Hollywood-themed Dream Gala.  They had the unique opportunity to mingle with Nationals players and coaches while enjoying a cocktail reception, silent and live auction, and dinner program. 

The Dream Gala has raised more than $two million for its three cornerstone programs: Youth Baseball Academy, Pediatric Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s National, and neighborhood initiatives to improve SE and SW DC. 

Excitement At The U.S. Open

With the second-round of the U.S. Open underway at Congressional Country Club, 22-year-old Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland eagled the eighth hole and is 4-under par for the round. He is seven ahead of Zach Johnson, who eagled No. 6, and Y.E. Yang, who tees off later today. He is on pace to set a few U.S. Open records today.

It has been interesting for fans to watch so far: a total of 33 players fired par or better Thursday, a far greater number than the 13 golfers who did so in last year’s first round at Pebble Beach.

We caught up with a few spectators to measure the levels of energy and excitement at The U.S. Open thus far.

“Lots of walking. Put on your walking shoes, but it’s a lot of fun,” said New Jersey visitor Thomas Love.


U.S. Open: Potomac Resident Turns Yard into Parking Lot

While players get ready for the first round of the U.S. Open, parking continues to be an issue.

According to the United States Golf Association, spectators attending the U.S. Open Championship at Congressional Country Club this week are reminded that there is no general spectator parking at or around the club.

Fifteen homeowners in Potomac, Maryland learned of the limited parking issue and decided to get permits for visitors to park on their lawns one week out of the year including David Stupar, whose two-acre lot has been in his family since 1960.

“We are the original owners. Horses used to graze our lot, but in 1997 we parked cars here for the U.S. Open and saw what a lucrative arrangement it was. We heard it was coming back this year, and knew we had a great business opportunity on our hands,” said Harrington Drive Resident, David Stupar.
