The Commanders are struggling to recover from a 31-19 loss to the Giants, with no hot water in either locker room after the game. Reports confirmed that an equipment failure in the main water heater caused the issue and it couldn’t be resolved during the game without completely shutting off the water to the stadium. This is not the first time there have been issues with pipes at FedEx Field, but this time it left the players in need of a shower.
The Commanders spokesperson stated that the issue compounded a bad day for the home team and they will need to find some other way to rinse away the stink of falling to 4-7 on the season. With no hot water available, it’s likely that players will have to rely on cold showers or other methods of cleaning up after their defeat. The Commanders will need to come up with a plan quickly if they hope to bounce back from this setback and continue their quest for playoff contention.
