First Base Offends Me

It was only a matter of time.

I was waiting for this. And I'm surprised it took so long.

I recently attended my first Nationals game at RFK Stadium. It was a great experience with one jarring exception: the Kiss Cam.

Between innings, live shots of fans kissing appeared on the scoreboard. Couples kissed with abandon and diminishing degrees of taste.

The last couple engaged in what politely used to be called "French kissing" with truly Napoleonic fervor.

How does this display comport with the Nationals' rule that "guests will refrain from displays of affection not appropriate in a public, family setting"?

And where will the Nationals draw the line?



John, have you met Veronica Raglin? How about Lisa Alfred?


  • They've been doing Kiss Cam at Caps games for years. It's just an amusing thing to get folks through the commercial break. This tight ass acts like it's the Forni-cam or something!

    Hey, maybe we're on to something...

  • That'd almost guarantee the seats'd be filled, I think.

  • And we'd lose all the far right Republicans.

  • Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • Nah, the far-right Republicans would make sure they're there to see all the action... but only to more accurately denounce it. *wink wink*

  • I know a few far righters. They'd approve. Just as long as it's none of them Ho-mo-sehcks-u-alls.

  • That letter caught my eye too. Don't like the Kiss Cam, then don't come to the games. Ya big uptight dork.

    I was at a hockey game in Atlanta a few years ago, and when they did the Kiss Cam, they finished with two guys wearing the jerseys of the visiting team. They saw themselves on the board, looked at each other, shrugged, and smooched. I hope the hardcore Georgia red-staters in the crowd enjoyed that one.

  • Just use the Seinfeld rule: has the nipple made its first appearance?

    If not, then it's not an incredibly offensive display of public affection. It's just tacky.

  • Now that the Nats have decided to promte themselves, maybe they can have a "can't see the Kiss-Cam" promotion for the 10,000 seats that cannot see the video board clearly or at all.
