With the forecast calling for 3-to-6 inches of snow and temperatures in the mid 30s, the Indians called off their game with the Chicago White Sox on Sunday night before the first snowflake had fallen.

C'mon, this is crap! Can't Bud Selig round up a few of them bright fluorescent orange baseballs? We can play in a little snow! :D:

The Toons are afraid, very afraid. They want to postpone the inevitable as long as possible.

The only good thing about big snows in April, is that it doesn't stick around long. :D: We'll be back to baseball in no time.

...and the Lord may have shown whom He is not a fan of by forcing the cancellation of you-know-who's home opener today at Clark & Addision. And He did allow us to play our game, didn't He.

Meanwhile, the Indians and Yankees' brass were smart enough to call their games in plenty of time for people to rearrange their plans. Yet, this particular team waits until it's too late for people to rearrange their plans. Now I wonder how much criticism (beyond Score hosts) this team will receive. You know for sure that if our home opener was today and we waited until 7:00 a.m. to call the game, the media would have given us holy hell for it.

Poppy-cock... (wow, I never used that one before)...

The Chicago area is famous for predicting 6 feet of snow and then getting just about enuf to make a decent snow cone. If they'd cancelled the game yesterday, and that happened, how dumb would they look? They waited for bad weather, got it, and cancelled the game, and plenty early enuf for the old ladies in Cowpie, Iowa to not stroll down to the VFW hall and make the schoolbus trip.

Murph and Fred just don't have anything to talk about so they are just bitching to be bitching. At least this time its about the Cub and not the Sox like it usually is.

I heard on the radio yesterday that if the weather is bad today, the Cubs will open on Tuesday.

I wonder how full Wrigley Field would be if the opening day crowd had to wait two hours for the game, uncertain if it would be played.

When I left the Cell after the Saturday and Sunday games, the temperature reading outside was below 30 degrees. Yet those sub-20,000 weekend crowds will officially count as evidence that the fans don't support the Sox.

I was there on Saturday to support them despite the upper deck cold. I bet it was worse yesterday though. That wind was brutal!

I wonder how many passes Rocky will leave for friends if the Expos ever get a chance to play the Cubs this week. I plan to see him pitch in Milwaukee at the end of the month.

Because the Expos only make one trip to Wrigley this year, any postponements might be up to the umpires and not the team.
