Nationals blasted for near 3-hour rain delay with no rain

Maybe don’t take weather forecasts from the Washington Nationals.

With a storm said to be approaching Nationals Park on Thursday at about the time the team was scheduled to take on the visiting Atlanta Braves, the hosts decided to play it safe by putting the game into a rain delay before it could get a chance to kick off.

That's all well and good, except for the fact that not a single drop of rain fell in over two hours of the "rain delay." Washington was put on blast on social media by those who couldn't understand the team's logic, including fans who left after refusing to wait any longer:

It took just over an hour and a half of the delay before the Nationals finally decided to roll out the tarp, despite there still being no rain yet at the stadium:

While it did eventually trickle in Washington, D.C., some other teams and players took the opportunity to poke fun at the Nationals for their lunacy:

After thousands of fans had already left, the Nationals announced the game would finally get underway at 10:10 p.m. ET, three hours and five minutes later than its original start time.

Drake’s ‘More Life’ Hits #1, Sells 505,000 Albums First Week

Some of you are probably pausing “Passionfruit” or “Portland” or “Do Not Disturb” or any one of the new bangers that Aubs released last week just to read this.

Suffice to say Drake’s new album “playlist”, More Life, is a BIG success if you believe what you read on social media. However, if you don’t, here are some number that confirm that claim.

According to Billboard, More Life hit #1 on the charts after garnering the equivalent of 505,000 units sold between streams (257,000) and traditional album sales (226,000) and single sales (23,000).

Tweeters lie, Instagrammers lie, numbers don’t.

More Life is Drake’s seventh consecutive album to debut at No. 1. Only his debut EP, So Far Gone, has missed the top slot, as it debuted and peaked at No. 6 back in 2009.

Drake’s seven No. 1s ties him with Kanye West and Eminem for the second-most No. 1s among hip-hop acts, trailing only Jay Z, with 13 leaders.Last week’s No. 1, Ed Sheeran’s ÷, falls to No. 2 after two weeks leading the list. ÷ earned 119,000 units in the latest tracking frame — down 34 percent.

Cavalcade of stars rain shots, raise $500K for Sager charity

After Eric Gordon claimed the All-Star weekend Three-Point Contest Saturday night, TNT’s Ernie Johnson gathered together some of the competitors for a tribute to the late Craig Sager. Before anyone knew it, a group of NBA and other stars – including DJ Khaled and Michael B. Jordan were on the floor raining shots, with each made trey representing $ 10,000 to the SagerStrong charity.

Then Johnson brought out Stephen Curry to try up the ante with a half-court shot. It didn’t work out as planned. He couldn’t sink one, so Sager’s youngest son Ryan got some help with a bucket to bring the total to $ 500,000.
