All Wet

The Man Upstairs was busy dumping boatloads of the Atlantic Ocean onto Fenway Park last night, but the game was played (sort of).

You recall that on May 4 The CHB bitched about the Sox waiting until after game time before calling a washout, saying that it was just the owners being greedy.

So in the wake of hours of pre-game downpour and a nasty looking forecast, the teams managed to play almost six innings of ball -- enough for it to go in the books.

Oh, and the Sox lost. Good thing they didn't call it.

A day earlier, Shaughnessy posted a head-spinning column that careened from Hideki Matsui's on-field injury in which the Yankee leftfielder suffered a broken wrist to a weird (and out of place) reference to the Patriots to a brief recap of the three-game series to Curt ("inimitable" nee "Big Shill") Schilling's depature from the game to Dan's whack-job analysis that somehow losing Matsui means the Red Sox have gained the upper hand in the rivalry this season.

I guess the Red Sox bought some cows to sit in the outfield this morning because today's game was called off well before anyone had a chance to leave home for the game. Will CHB take all the credit for it?

Now that's funny!

And to tweak CHB further, the cows were sponsored by Ben & Jerry's.

Cows? Nah. I hear they just chained Joe Sullivan to a peg in center field starting at 5:30 AM this morning.

They no doubt learned their lesson. Tickets are too hard to come by for people to be subjected to the non-game with the yankees or the six innings of misery
