"It's unbelievable we're been put through this."
(D.C. Council Chairman Vince Gray, via WTOP dot com, 5/14/2009)
Would-be Stadium-Killer-turned-Mayor continues to block DC Council's access to Nats tickets.
(Memo to Vince Gray and DC Council - you should probably be thanking Mr. Fenty. Have you heard how crappy this team is?)
As part of the stadium lease, the District receives 86 season tickets, including two sky suites. In past years, the tickets have been shared between the mayor and the councilmembers.
Many, many weeks later, and "The Honorable" Adrian Fenty is still withholding tickets from the DC Council, for some vague reason involving the District Budget and/or his personality clash with Vince Gray, and/or DC politics being DC politics.
Remember: Back in the day, Mr. Mayor wanted to kill the very idea of Nationals Park, but now he's having a blast up in the District's suite. What a jerk.
Memo to the DC Council (via Stan Kasten): while you wait for Fenty to cough up your tickets, there are still plenty of good seats available, night in and night out! (We suggest the $10 Upper Right Field Terrace Cheap seats + a crisp $20 bill to an usher down in the $80 dugout-level boxes and Voila! Great seats for just $30!)
