A three-hour, 17-minute rain delay thinned out the crowd at Nationals Park on Monday, leaving a few hundred dedicated (or crazy) fans to watch the Nationals defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 in a game that did not end until nearly 1:30 a.m.
"You can hear every word at that point," second baseman Danny Espinosa told reporters. "It's like a back-field spring training game."
One of those crazy fans was a Dodgers fan sitting behind home plate. When eccentric reliever Brian Wilson entered the game, this guy was cised.
It is as if this hairy man is willing Wilson on with each and every aggressive fist pump. Unfortunately for Wilson, this man and the Dodgers, none of them won. The rest of us, however, very much did.
