John Carlson throws out first pitch

Sep 8, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

The Nationals and Dodgers remain on a delay for the second game and the rain is really coming down. While you wait here is a video from earlier of Capitals defenseman John Carlson throwing out the first pitch.

    reposting:Power went out again, which the kids think is great fun. It's pretty bad out. I'm heading home. Apparently the game is postponed, so we can lose both ends of the doubleheader today, we'll have to wait until the 20th to do that.

    I had my Caps umbrella with me tonight. Stopped a lot of the rain, but let in a couple sofites.

    For a minute there I thought they meant The Big Guy…Mr. Carlson, from WKRP. But that only works if it's a Reds game.

    I thought they meant Johnny Carson.
