Allyson and I went to the Nationals game yesterday (they beat the Astros7-2). The game began at 4:30, which, as far as I'm concerned, is the perfect starting time for a baseball game. We were home in plenty of time to catch the season premiere of The Office. ... Interesting article in the New York Times today. Turns out Bing Crosby recorded the NBC broadcast of Game 7 of the 1960 World Series. The tape was recently discovered. It's the only known recording of the game. What caught my eye, however, is a photo accompanying the article. It shows Bing sitting at a ballgame with Frank McKinney. Harry and Bess Truman crashed at Frank's place on their Excellent Adventure. ... It's autumn in Washington. Today's expected high: 97. Ugh.
