The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
There was a cool version madden in the 90's where you had to replay the heidi gane
I remember a rain-delayed game at Riverfront that ended after 3 am. You could hear the lawn blowers of the cleanup crew in the last inning. There were about 50 people left.
Game officially suspended. Starts where we left off at 5:30 tomorrow.
Game suspended until tomorrow at 530

Fans with tickets for tonight's game need to exchange tickets for tomorrow's game. They will get tickets for both. Gates at 430
damn. okay i have work tomorrow at 7. this might work. only night off in 2 weeks and it rains.
Yeah, not really surprising that they called it, what with the rain continuing and no score. Makes sense to just finish it tomorrow before starting the final game of the series.
No dogs tomorrow for 5:30 game BTW
