Seth Meyers is in town to film his late night show from the Warner Theatre. You can go to his daily monologue rehearsal at 2:50 p.m. or attend taping of NBC’s “Late Night with Seth Meyers” at 5:15 p.m. until Thursday.

But, tickets to the taping are not so easy to get. The waitlist for seats opened up in August.

Although they are free, no one was guaranteed a ticket. Come late September, those who received tickets were notified.

Nationals playoffs continue

The Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Dodgers National League Division Series continues at 5 p.m. in Los Angeles for Game 4. The series will return to D.C. should there be a Game 5 on Thursday.

Happy hockey season

The National Hockey League starts it’s 100th season on Wednesday.

Congressional hockey players include New York Republican Rep. John Katko, from Camillus, New York, near Syracuse. In 2015, he scored the game-winning goal and was named MVP in the Congressional Hockey Challenge, an annual charity event in which members of Congress and staff play against a team of lobbyists. Another hockey player is Pennsylvania GOP Rep. Patrick Meehan, who was a defenseman at Bowdoin College in Maine. He said his job as a player was to “get in the way of the other guys.”
