Rain Delay

10:11 p.m. 2-1 in favor of the Cards. Bottom of the ninth. One out. Bases empty. Three balls and two strikes to Matt Kemp. Then the sky opened up and two minutes after this shot was snapped umpires said no more and out came the tarps.


Not only have I never been to a Dodger game before by bike. But I’ve never been to one where it rained, much less delayed the game.

Dare I admit that my friend Michael and I bailed out of our seats and took refuge under the eaves. And not long after the umpires ordered the field cleared we ordered ourselves out of the stadium to our bikes and homeward.
