Nationals Timekeeping Fail
Over the past week, I've now gotten three different reports of Nationals Timekeeping Fail, from three different readers, with three different descriptions of the failing times. One person said the scoreboard's large Curly W clock was one hour off. One person said it was 10 minutes off. And then there was reader Lori, who just sent me this photo, with this message:
Just so you know, yesterday they tried to fix the clock at Nationals Park. When I arrived at the game, the analog clock was its customary 10 minutes behind the digital clock. Sometime before first pitch, they attempted to reset it, and either got distracted or just can't tell time using an analog clock. It not sits exactly four hours behind EDT. It kept perfect Anchorage time throughout yesterday's game. Clock FAIL.
Indeed. Although I suppose the clock is timed perfectly so that, even as each loss is concluded, you can tell yourself that somewhere, the first pitch is still just a few minutes away.
(Noted, as always: I believe the Nationals will succeed wildly in the near future, and I will jump on the bandwagon with all four limbs when that happens. Growing pains, is all.)
