Yankees Opening Delay

leave a comment »


On this misty gray day in New York City there are thousands of Yankees fanatics, many who paid upwards of $250 a piece to be at the Yankees’ last opening day at the Yankee Stadium, probably wandering home cursing the rain wondering if they can take tomorrow off for the rescheduled game.


Years ago, I got rained out of the only Yankees game I ever had tickets to. Though I’m not a fan of baseball and don’t feel particularly sentimental about the stadium getting replaced, I don’t like picturing a bunch of Yankees fans prematurely disappointed.



So what do you do when your game gets rained out? Any traditions?

In a country music video, I imagine you could have a picnic in a pick-up truck parked on the field, and then later you play baseball in the rain with your guitar and realize: you can strum a guitar and catch a ball with your bare hands at once. So why would you want to sit in the bleachers as a fan when you know you’re really a rock star?
