[Imagine Law & Order-type music]
The excellence that is...Oakland A's baseball.
Graham Godfrey versus Erik Bedard.
Both versus that evil temptress, Mother Nature.
The end of the first game was so inspiring, they decided to keep playing. There are clearly sadists and masochists involved in both the the players and the fans here.
Guess which you are, AN.
Let's see if we can get five in before the teams and the remaining 500 fans float away!
So whatcha whatcha whatcha want?
It get so muddy with the water Irene drops.
Say, where'd you get your Doppler radar from, son?
We got to get five in before the rain clouds come.
YEAH, you can't front on that.
The first game featured three hours of rain delays, and we got more delays now...so. There you are.
