MCM to hold press briefing with Rob Riggle

The Marine Corps Marathon will host a press briefing on October 26 featuring actor and U.S. Marine Rob Riggle as well as officials and special participants in the race. 

Riggle became an actor after serving with the Marines and remains a member of the reserves. He is known for his work on the Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, and the movie the Hangover.

The media-only event will be hosted two days before the October 28 race at 12:30 p.m. at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. MCM organizers explained what to expect in a press release:

“During the briefing, MCM organizers will address the U.S. Marine coordination of the event held in Arlington, VA and the nation's capital with 40,000 registered participants in the MCM and MCM10K.  In addition, the MCM staff will highlight the event's record sell out, which is expected to result in the largest turnout of runners to date.”

The National Press Club is located at 529 14th Street NW Washington D.C. The press brief will be held on the 13th floor.

Nationals to introduce 'Kids Eat Free' program for the rest of the summer

What's better than spending a summer evening at a baseball game? Spending a summer evening at a baseball game and getting free food, that's what!

From July 22 to September 2, the Nationals are introducing a "Kids Eat Free" program, allowing any member of the Jr. Nats Kids Club age 12 or under to get a free meal at a Nats home game.

The meal includes a hot dog, the choice of chips or applesauce, and a soda or bottled water. According to the Nats, the meal is a $17 value. 

“We’re trying to find ways to make our experience as family-friendly as possible,” Nationals EVP of business operations Jake Burns told Front Office Sports. “This idea was borne out of brainstorming of things we could do to get families in the door or provide a better experience to existing families, and we found a way to attract new fans to the ballpark and strengthen the relationship with those existing fans.” 

Take your kids out to the ballpark, folks. You get to introduce them to America's pastime and save some money!
