Rain Game

A week ago I was at Angel Stadium for the first time in a few years— and wouldn’t you know it— it was the first game that ended up being rained-out in twenty years. I went with dear family friends and despite that no game was played… it really was a wonderful day.

We got there around 3:30pm for batting practice and the game wasn’t set to kick off until 5:05. It started raining about an hour before the game, but it was touch-and-go. The delay was announced and a “start time” was set for around 6:30. The rain stopped around 6pm and we waited… waited… and waited. The sweepers were out there working their fervent best.

Then at 7:35pm Angels PA announcer, Michael Araujo, came on and announced the surprising cancellation. You could literally feel, much less hear, such a response from the crowd.

But at any rate— it was a good day.

A personal delight— a winning level of Ms. Pac-Man was played.
