Five Things for Today: May 24, 2020

Celebrating the World Series Champions Nats in pre-coronatimes

1. Nats fans, clear your schedule this evening! Tonight at 7pm, the team will unveil their 2019 World Series championship rings during a historic virtual celebration, the first virtual championship ring ceremony in MLB history. The event will be live streamed on on their Facebook and YouTube channels and aired on MLB Network and MASN. (PS: Before that at 5:30pm, Part 2 of their documentary “Improbable” will air on and MASN. Sorry to miss posting Part 1, but the second half is sure to be more exciting.)

2. Kids can chat with a former Top Gun fighter pilot this afternoon. From 4-4:45pm, they can join a free virtual hangout via Zoom as part of a Kids Get Inspired! Series presented by Fig and Wally, the online invitation and gifting site.

3. We may not be able to enjoy it live on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol this year, but the annual National Memorial Day Concert is still happening, just on TV only. Tune in to PBS at 8pm for performances and tributes filmed around the country and featuring some of the most iconic and powerful segments from past concerts — see specifics here.

4. Because it’s the weekend and many people will be looking to get out for some fresh air and exercise, and because hiking is permitted during stay-at-home orders, here’s a quick link to the round-up of local places for walks in the woods. It’s been updated to reflect the current status of sites, but it doesn’t hurt to check websites or call ahead to confirm.

5. What reopening looks like around the world.
