Signing out from soggy C-Town

IMG_0063CLEVELAND -- What's that old adage? Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose ... and sometimes it rains.

Or in the case of Saturday afternoon at Progressive Field, it comes down like cats, dogs, sea lions, otters and elephants (click pic at left for a bigger view from the press box). We were in the bottom of the first with no score, two Indians on base on Friday night hero Travis Hafner at the plate when the skies opened and never stopped. It was a biblical flood that inundated center field.

They finally banged this one after a wait of about two hours but not before we saw Charlie Brown and Baseball Bugs, another all-time classic, on the jumbotron. Very nice touch.

Bugs Bunny - Baseball bugs

I'll probably make it home in time to see most of Yankees-Red Sox and all of Bruins-Lightning. Here's a cheap plug alert: Sometime in the next couple of weeks, be on the lookout for a big takeout on the resurgence of the Tribe and the hope this group is bringing to Cleveland in the post-LeBron era
