Torrential Rain Completely Ruined D.C. Sports on Saturday

The Nationals didn’t have time to build an ark, either.

It rained in Washington D.C. on Saturday. It rained a lot. And as tends to happen when nature takes charge, the sports world suffered.

The Nationals, well, they did not play right away. It was the second day in a row this happened. Here is why. 

Here is also why. The game is set to start at 10 p.m., but that may be generous. That’s a three-hour delay if you’re scoring at home. They’ll also play a doubleheader on Sunday, which is unfortunate for the players.

It’s really not great.

The D.C. United game was also cancelled. And it rained so much that it leaked inside the Washington Mystics’ arena. Yes, a basketball rain delay.

These are indeed dark times in our nation’s capitol.
