Hey, isn’t that… Die-hard Nats fans, including Bloomberg News’ Al Hunt, NBC host David Gregory, former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke, and former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski (now with the Carlyle Group), taking in today’s home opener against the Atlanta Braves?

The super-fans might not have gotten the curly “W” they were hoping for (the Nats fell to the Braves, 2-1), but at least they had a mild afternoon — and the consolation that there are dozens more home games to come — for their hooky-playing excursion.
