In keeping with the spirit of the season . . .

Game one moved up to noon Friday due to expected deteriorating weather in Wichita.

No Wichita sucks? I've driven through, it's seemed like a truck stop in Iowa, without the charm

Wichita would seem like nothing if you just stayed on the turnpike like some second, no, third (fourth?) city ignoramus.

Well we got an inch of snow and it's 19 degrees right now. Don't know that there will be any baseball here today (or tomorrow).

Unless you have a way of melting snow when it's 20 out, I don't know how you would play in Philly either

I went to one Phillies game several years ago in April where it went to a “snow delay” after one of the fielders lost a fly in the lights/snowflakes. I stayed until the end when there was just the ground crew and only about 1000 people in the stands.

I can report that the sun has nearly melted all of the snow already. Still cold, barely 32.

Ah, the wonderful feeling of not squaring one up on a freezing day. I don't miss that.

(luckily I was a pretty good hitter :wink: )

I still have PTSD from getting sawed off a couple of times during games in the 30's... the sting and the deep throb through your forearms...ugh
