A Great Excuse to Play Hooky: Nationals Day Game

Want to feel like a kid again? Then ditch work today to catch the Washington Nationals-Pittsburgh Pirates matinee, which starts at 12:35 p.m. at Nats Park.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. The Nats are slumping. They’re snakebit, as right fielder Jayson Werth said a couple of days ago. But it’s 80 degrees with no clouds out. It’s like the baseball gods got together and said, “Let’s make a perfect day for baseball.”

C’mon. Take a long lunch. Buy a $5 ticket and root for the home team.
