Twas over at Farragut this afternoon, so I decided to scout out the "Sherwood" polo grounds. Saw nuthin at 14 & K that looks like a park or parking lot or anything suitable for a polo grounds. Only Sherwood in the phone book, is a Sherwood Rec Center in NE.

sherwood is what we call Lincoln Square. It's the park between 13&14 and I&K. and there may be a fountain in the middle, but we consider it quite "suitable"!

c'mon out!

ps - Pirates, 1 week till scavenging stupidity. Better stare at a map some.

Actually, it's Franklin Park, but you can call it "Lincoln Square" if you want.

Hey, that's why you can call it what you want... I did check, though, because I thought it was Franklin Square, too, but it is actually Franklin Park (although it is squarish, so, er, tomayto-tomahto, I guess...).

The National Park Service officially lists its name as Franklin Square:
http://www.cr.nps.gov/nr/travel/wash/dc29.htm

Franklin "Square" is rectangular.

Lincoln Square is a former name for the current Lincoln Park, site of the Emancipation Memorial, located on Capitol from 11th to 13th.

Thanks EBK, BLocks, Rwind & mtbchica for joking with me and providing sanity advice on what to do after being slow motion T-boned. May be it was overly dramatic to have the fire dept and the police on such minor incident, but getting the police report was a good thing. Now to City Bikes for a damage estimate.

What happened: It was really nothing, nothing at all, except that there was a car involve, heck, we had seen worst between pirates

Got in a warm up lap before meeting up with LBK and the rest.

I was riding outboard on the causway (re-versed direction) and saw LBK at the corner of the cause way and the parking lot. So I swung into the ped cross walk, rolling really slow because there were 2 cars at teh stop sign. The first one went , so I started to cross, the second car had the same idea and T-boned me. All was in really slow mo, but since I was clipped in, the bike tumbled with me. As I was lying in the intersection, clipped to the bike, I was glad that there wasn't another car to run me over.

hardly a scrape on me, but the bars got bent and the rear wheel needed a truing. All in all, everything was fine, the guy's insurance left me a voice mail. I think we can laught this one off.

Thanks for all the VM and PM of concern and good cheer!

PNC, glad to hear you're okay after that. A slow moving car should've seen a slow moving bike - WTF?

Tuesday night's forecasted for rain, is this a rain or (moon)shine event?
