Tonight, I am invoking sprite‘s rule for blog timing – if I haven’t gone to bed yet, it still counts as the day I woke up, not the day the calendar has turned to. So, though I am actually typing this at 1:35 a.m. on August 21st, it’s getting backdated to 11:59 p.m. on the 20th.
It’s not my fault I’m late, anyway. Blame is squarely on the shoulders of the Nationals. A rain delay + extra innings = one long night at the ballpark. The Nats won in the bottom of the 13th on a kind of wacky play that looked like an error but wasn’t called one. But, a win is a win, especially when it’s against your team’s closest divisional rival.
You know the game has gone long when you see this on the way out:
Yup, the next game is no longer tomorrow… it’s today.
