For the Marlins, RFK is just a Memory

The new Nationals Ballpark, while completely stunning in the artist rendition, will never have the ambiance of RFK.

A man suspected of robbing a vendor during the Nationals game at RFK Stadium apparently shot himself in the leg by mistake late last night as he tried to elude security guards, authorities said.

The incident began shortly before 10:30 p.m., in the final inning of the game against the Florida Marlins. Diane Groomes, commander of the 1st Police District, said a man robbed a vendor on the fifth floor of the stadium as the woman was closing the business for the night.

Ah, the good times.

There is no doubt that RFK will be missed.
