WASHINGTON, DC -- Or more correctly, softball.

On our way to see the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial at sunset (spectacular sunset, incidentally), we walked past a softball game of the 2003 Congressional Softball League. How did we know this? Well, one of the teams was wearing shirts that said "McCainiacs", evidently Sen. McCain's staff. They were winning handily. Not sure what that says about the Senate. The shirts were pretty cool-looking, too.

Off to the Capitol later this morning, then we'll figure out some other sightseeing later on, and then to tonight's ballgame. Let's hope the Cubs can build off the emotional high they left Chicago with after Sunday's game. We ran into some people on our flight yesterday who were also going to this series, so there will be a good representation of Cub fans at Camden Yards.
