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.)
