WASHINGTON -- Since joining baseball's lineup of stadiums in 2008, Nationals Park has experienced a tough stretch of home openers.

Thanks to a walkoff win over the Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals' inaugural game in their new stadium was a memorable one. President George W. Bush threw out the first pitch, and was welcomed by a chorus of boos.

Over the past three seasons, the script has been different. After back-to-back losses to the division-rival Philadelphia Phillies, and a nailbiting defeat last season to the Braves, hopes are high for Thursday's tilt with the Cincinnati Reds.

With that, HuffPost rewinds to those opening games. Did you attend any of the Nationals' home openers? Share your memories with us in the comments section at the bottom.
