Happy 4th Everyone!
The radar looks really bad...wonder if this game will be played today.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
Radar seems to show the rain moving north. Looks like a window there to get the game in sometime--in a couple of hours.
The rain is playing havoc here with the Greenbrier Classic and no end of rain until next Wednesday. Glad I'm not a sunglasses salesman. If that were the case, I'd be bankrupt by now.

As I pay to park they announce they are treating this as a night game.
5+ hours to kill

On the plus side, The Twilight Zone marathon is on.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
Banana Phone, yo.
If anyone wonders why our country isn't quite what it used to be, just listen to some of these callers. It's always good (sad?) theater.
He had to be explained that only in Houston are the seats in LF called that. He thought it was all MLB parks! Haha.
"They didn't like it in Pittsburgh."
"If they knew what they liked, they wouldn't live in Pittsburgh."

First S-faced drunk on right now. He can barely talk. Haha.
Ugh, it hasn't stopped raining since midnight, fireworks have been cancelled here (and in all surrounding counties), and the Reds game is on hold. Happy 4th, everyone. Sigh.
Here's hoping that watching the Hot Dog eating contest wasn't the highlight of my day.
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
The caller before the drunk endorsed the idea of MLB teams lining up and shaking hands like Little League teams do after games.
This is great.
