Nats win, Nats win

This, ladies and gents, is why we have blogs. If theoretically the whole D.C. sports world were checking my Bog constantly, or better yet, subscribing to the RSS feed, they would now know that the Nats have only just recently won, 7-6, in dramatic fashion over the St. Louis Cardinals. (Does that sound like a breaking news lede? AP, are you interested in my services?) Cordero blows the lead in the top of the ninth on a two-run homer by ex-Nat Preston Wilson, then Jose Vidro hits a bases-loaded single in the bottom of the ninth, leaving a decidedly non-sold out crowd giddy with mild enthusiasm and leading to this breaking news update. Drive home safely.

"For people who like to play hooky on a Wednesday afternoon, it's just one of the nice things about having baseball," said Boz, who was the first person within quoting distance. "This is the poor man's equivalent of the Wrigley Field afternoon. In another couple of years we'll have the new ballpark and maybe it won't be the poor man's equivalent, it'll just be ours."

(When I told him I was quoting him, Boz complained that it was too saccharine, but I insisted. Being the incredible gentleman he is, he obliged. Did you know that he was here on his "off" day? Hard core.)

"giddy with mild enthusiasm"


I have to say, if I had any real interest in sports I'd be totally envious of you right now, as it seems you just got paid to spend a day at the ballpark and make snarky comments.

After I read this item yesterday, the main page of still stated that the game was in the bottom of the 5th, and that the Nats had a 87% probability of winning. I was very confused.
