Atlanta at Philadelphia
I'm heading out to the Nationals game tonight. On paper, it looks like a fairly underwhelming match-up, the bottom two teams in the NL East--both of whom are pretty awful--facing off in a game that will still leave the winner miles behind the division-leading Mets and pretty far south of .500. If recent Nats' attendance is anything to go on, they'll draw a crowd of about 21,000--or roughly equal to what DC United draws playing soccer in the same stadium.
I'll be there though, because I love baseball. And because of games like this one I described last year, which proves even a game which on paper appears to be a snoozer can turn into so much more.
