Well, I can report that it’s just another gorgeous morning here in the Sweet Spot. Home to just the fortunate few, it was a sunny 59 degrees out here when I got up to find low humidity, no chance of rain, and gentle breezes blowing in from the NE. Should reach the high 70s later on as part of another beautiful day. It’s quite a run of that sort of thing that we’ve been on, and it isn’t ending yet.
Real President Joe is meanwhile waiting to see how much help the now punchless Speaker might need in getting the debt limit deal done in the House. The K-Clown kind of rendered himself useless against the nutcase ultra-right with all his cave-ins back in January and those deals are kind of coming back to haunt him now. Won’t be the last time.
In other news, the bullpen that was so strong behind Jojo Gray, then wilted behind Mackenzie Gore, simply fell apart last night behind Jake Irvin, as the Dodgers ran away late to earn a 9-3 win. It wasn't pretty. The teams will hook up for a third and final time this afternoon, with aging Patrick Corbin taking on aging Noah Syndergaard. Corbin actually has the better stats on the year, but that might not mean anything, as there is plenty of potential to fall apart with both these guys. We’ll see which can hang on longer.
Not hanging on at all well of course is ever-fading Falls Church City. In a bit of a plus though, local (Hillwood Avenue) radio station WFAX (100.7, The Panther) has now finished dumping its old Christian talk format in favor of Spanish and Mexican music. It’s an improvement, but I won’t be listening to that either. Not much for Mexican music other than Oliver Perez’s old walk-up song.
