Yeah, a retractable roof on the new place would be a stupid idea.
Go tell that to the 55,000 fans who have been sitting up in the Bronx for the last two hours.
I am so bummed by this turn of events. I know that you cannot fight the weather. Nonetheless, as a working stiff, I’m going to now miss watching this game. I hate having my eyeballs miss watching a Yankees post-season game. I cannot remember the last time that I missed watching a Yankees post-season game.
I probably would have played hookey or “worked from home” in the past – in order to be able to watch a day post-season Yankees game. I cannot do that tomorrow. Having this game called tonight kicks me right, square, in my Yankees-fan fannie.
Worse, because of meetings in the office on Thursday, I cannot stay tuned to a radio or Gamecast to follow the action as it happens. (Don’t even get me started over the fact that this game will now be played without me having a chance to change into my “lucky game watching clothes” because I will be at work.)
Let me try and equate the feelings now for me on this one.
I think I have it.
At this moment, Game 2 of the ALDS between the Tigers and Yankees is the football.
The weather is Lucy.
And I am freakin’ Charlie Brown.
Yeah. That fits.
