I'm sitting here listening to the Royals game (they're in town), and we go to the bottom of the 10th. It starts raining like crazy where I am, which is about 15 miles West of the stadium, roof sounds like bullets over Baghdad, and the storm is moving East.
The play-by-play man says that it is a 3-3 tie in the tenth and the weather is beautiful.
The Royals load up the bases, seemingly about to win, and the announcer says that it started to rain. I am thinking, FINISH IT OFF, but after loading the bases with no out, the Royals are out of the inning.
It was just too funny listening to the game, hearing how perfect the weather was, listening to the rain pound on my house, hearing that the Royals loaded the bases in the 10th and then hearing that the rain had hit the stadium, hoping someone could hit a single with the bases loaded.
Scoreboard is exactly equal: Both teams with 3-10-1, top of the 11th.
UPDATE: Bottom of the 11th, still raining, some lightening, but they better finish this game.
OMG: Ken Harvey, lead-off hitter in the 11th, hammers it out of the park. Game over, Baby! "Deep over the seats in left field."
38K to see the game, to see a winning team with a food stamp budget. Royals are 12 and 3.
