Yes, Strasburg actually lived up to the hype, for one game at least.
There was another opening, albeit one night, at DAR Constitution Hall of the traveling "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television" Conan O'Brien show.
Apparently his debut was just as entertaining and lived up to the hype of his fans (who obviously are not big baseball fans) and also managed to sell out the venue.
One "feature" of Conan's show is that he usually has at least one or two surprise celebrity guests show up sometime during the show. Except last night.
Guess they were all at Nationals Park.
