And so in the ongoing saga of the Nationals and late night Metro service -- the Nats asked the District to foot the bill to keep Metro open late for fans -- D.C. reportedly will tell say no to Ted Lerner.
Here's D.C. Council member Jack Evans:
"All the professional teams are doing this, so I think the Nationals at this stage should have to do this."
(Jack Evans, via via Washington Post, 8/24/2012)
$29,000 per hour to keep Metro open after hours for Nats games? Seems like a small price to pay for the goodwill alone. Pony up, Uncle Teddy!
