Half Smokes Hypothetical: How Hot Is Too Hot?

New, 1 comment

Half Smokes Hypothetical is a daily discussion where we throw out a D.C. sports-related question based on the news of the day. It's a hypothetical discussion, which is what makes it fun (we hope).


This isn't exactly a local question, but it intrigued me when I read about how D.C. United is letting fans take in two water bottles each for tomorrow's exhibition against Portsmouth. It's supposed to be obscenely hot tomorrow, with temperatures over 100 degrees. And yet, there will still be enough fans willing to deal with the heat and support D.C. United in person tomorrow.


So with that in mind, here's today's hypothetical.


How hot is too hot to attend a sporting event for your favorite team? At what point does the heat become so unbearable that you have to stay home and watch the game on TV?
