Nats, Caps doubleheader today

Not many cities have baseball and hockey teams with the same color scheme
Two games in the District today, back-to-back, separated by four stops on the Green Line.

Navy Yard Metro
4:05 p.m. Washington Nationals (2-0) vs. Miami Marlins (0-2)
Jordan Zimmerman vs. Wade LaBlanc

The Nats go for the sweep over the Marlins before a big series against the Reds in Cincinnati. That is going to be a real test. I hope the Nats take care of business tonight, especially since Wisconsin native Zimmermann is on the mound. I’m fearing the reverse lock.

I’ll be listening at work via MLB Audio (well worth the $20 annually) and my car radio (106.7 WJFK-FM/1500 WFED-AM). Telecast is on MASN2.

Gallery Place/Chinatown
7:05 p.m. Washington Capitals vs. New York Islanders
Braden Holtby vs. Evgeni Nabokov

I haven’t blogged much about the Caps this season, partly because I’m mad at Ted Leonsis for the lockout, partly because my blogging has been inconsistent overall. I’m still pulling for them, they just tend to lose when I watch them so I’ve been superstitious. Telecast is on CSN Washington.

Someday, I need to do a Nats/Caps doubleheader in person. Not sure how fun being a Green Line commuter today is going to be though.
