Morning Look: Fans All Wet
While yesterday's D.C. United game was stuck in some sort of strange limbo for much of the night, delayed after 16 minutes of slop but not yet canceled, I couldn't help but hope that the waterlogged chaos would result in a delay of several hours, players helping squeegee the field and then a late-night free game in front of virtually no one, while various supporters fell asleep on their drums and the cats roamed free. Sort of like that late-night Phillies-Nats game from two falls ago, except with bagpipes.
Instead, they postponed the whole thing, which is much less memorable. A few miles away, the Nats were doing likewise, although in that case at least the game was switched to this afternoon, allowing me to attend my first-ever game at Nationals Park. You know, a 1:10 D.C. United start at RFK would have worked pretty well.
Regardless, this would be a good time to mention that the Post's Capital Weather Gang blog offers nightly United- and Nats-related forecast, known as NatsCast and UnitedCast. Yesterday's entries predicted that "a few storms could still be severe" during gametime. True enough, as it turned out. Today's NatsCast calls for humidity and thunderstorms.
