    Members of Congress were to join NFL players in a charity event against the Capitol Police at RFK Stadium Wednesday night, but the threat of rain and thunder postponed the event.

    So if you were hoping to see a member of Congress get sacked by officers, it's not going to happen Wednesday night.  A makeup date has not been announced.  And besides, the teams will be playing flag football.  No sacks allowed.

    Congresswoman Donna Edwards from Maryland and Congressman Jim Moran from Virginia were scheduled to join in the game.

    Heath Shuler, representative from North Carolina and a former first-round draft pick bust for the Redskins, is one the Congressional co-captains.

    Several retired players from the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys were also expected to take part.
               
    The cost of a ticket was $10.  The money will go to Military Kids and the Capitol Police Memorial Fund.
