    I'm sure 1000's of people got screwed just like you.
    I almost got screwed by this. Me and my wife were at a friends house feeding their cats while they were away for the weekend. I turned on the TV to ESPNNews to get an update and it said PPD. So I thought that was it. WHen I got home about 10 I came to REDSZONE to see when they had rescheduled it. I thought maybe a DH today or tomorrow. I clicked on the game thread and there it was. In the 2nd inning. So I went downstairs and turned it on and watched the rest of the game. Thank goodness for REDSZONE or I would have missed a great comeback! BTW the bullpen was great again last night!

    if i hadn't been checking redszone's game thread, i would have thought the game was really cancelled as well...i have the extra innings package and once i saw "postponed", i turned off the channel...just for the heck of it, i happened to open the game thread where some posters were saying that they were still waiting for the official status of the game...luckily, i ended up seeing most of the game, but it really did tick me off how they showed "postponed" instead of delayed...i almost ordered a pay per view movie last night...

    haha.. i was at the bar, and luckily i'm not on the east coast.. so i happened to catch the start of the game at a decent hour(9ish?) - i guess sometimes it does benefit to live out West.. sorry guys, but at least our Reds won right?
