Yesterday was a disappointing day for our Birds in the nation's capital, but today is a new day.  Yes, a gray one, but, hey.  Today, the unpronounceables square off to cap off this season's so-called Battle of the Beltways.  Presuming rain doesn't ruin everything, I'm headed to the park for some baseball today.

Happy Father's Day, folks.

And now, clips.
