Upset You Missed Stephen Strasburg? So Did Clinton Portis And Andray Blatche

One of my favorite things about sports in this city is that athletes here go out of their way to support all of the teams. Maybe this is something that happens everywhere, but even so, it's always nice to see. (Before you ask, yes, they could just love being spotted, but I left my inner cynic home yesterday, so I'm not considering that angle).

So it's really not surprising that both Clinton Portis and Andray Blatche were on hand last night to see Stephen Strasburg pitch. It probably won't give you much consolation if you attended last night's game and left disappointed, but it's worth noting that they missed the show too. Blatche even presented the lineup card, which initially included Strasburg's name on it.

Blatche was happy then. I'm guessing he wasn't so happy around 7:05.
