I can live with rain delays. God knows, living in Pittsburgh, I've seen plenty of them over the years. What I can't stand is when the team deliberately drags it out. I think it had to be obvious to anyone looking at the radar that play wouldn't be able to resume, and it was just rude that they waited so long before breaking that news to the fans soaking in their seats.

Of course, it was a double whammy for me, because I was taking my father to the park so he could see the Pirates and Yankees play in Pittsburgh for the first time in 47 years. He's been waiting for this for a while, and probably won't be able to be there for the make-up date. Dammit.

And, as an after-the-fact editorial note, this was the start of a decidedly depressing weekend that included sitting in the rain, witnessing a terrible car accident, and being sick as a dog. Just not my weekend.
