WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Hours before the Nationals defeated the Rockies 4-3 to take the 3-game series sweep Wednesday, radio play-by-play announcers Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler were waiting out an extended rain delay, and brought on post-game host Phil Wood to weigh in on an age-old debate.

You might say, it was raining cats and dogs before the game.

“You’re not a dog person?” Jageler said to Wood.

“Oh, I like dogs. I don’t have a dog, but I like dogs,” Wood said. “I like cats. I like animals in general.”

“Nor do I,” Jageler said. “Don’t really have a dog lifestyle.”

“No, not conducive,” Slowes said.

“Being gone weeks at a time, not good,” Jageler said.

“Well, I became more of a dog person when I read that, if you have a cat, and you die, your cat will eventually eat you,” Wood said. “So, it’s just their nature, apparently.”

“I had never heard that,” Slowes said, stunned, kinda.

“Well, thanks for that,” Jageler said.

“Welp, so, again, if that helps you make up your mind at all, on whether or not you’re a dog or a cat person,” Wood concluded his thought.

Twitter took notice of the odd, but probably true, remark.

Listen to the outstanding audio below. It’s worth the laugh.
