Well, it seems like the entire east coast is wet, soggy, cold and miserable.
Even the games that aren’t delayed or postponed seem to be going on with some less than desirable weather. Not exactly a fun afternoon at the ballpark for anyone east of Chicago today.
They (whoever “they” are) tell me that the Sox are still expected to play starting at the top of the hour. So, maybe we are in for another game like last night. Rain coming down for pretty much the whole game, raging winds, the Halos bundled up in their fleeces, and 2 separate rain delays.
We didn’t play terribly (at least, there was nothing epically terrible to complain about – we were kind of just generally blah) all things considered, but it didn’t work out so well for us yesterday and I’m not all that eager to relive it today.
So, click [here] for a not-quite-family-friendly picture that sums up how I feel about the rain situation today.
So, for the moment, I just finished up the Reds/Pirates game (I hope Juan Francisco can walk off whatever was causing him to hop to first in the bottom of the 8th) and now I’m killing time with Rays/Twins. A roof is looking like a good thing right about now, because no matter what “they” say – the weather looks pretty miserable and I’m not holding my breath.
One response to “And, the rain continues to fall. Or: Here we go again.”
I’m biding my time with the Rays/Twins game too. Too bad about Mauer. Darned inconvenient this rain delay stuff. There are plenty of non game hours when it could be raining. I think Mother Nature needs to learn to share, LOL. Your guys didn’t play all blah last night. Juan Pierre invoked a lot of cursing at my place last night as did Adam Dunn. “They” just said game in 15 minutes, but if you’re not holding your breath, maybe not.
This is a very simple game…
