Hey, so, if anyone has a burning desire to go to today's game (and who wouldn't?) I have 2 tix i'm looking to sell in GS31. I thought the game was at 7, but i'm an idiot and didn't notice it's at 4, thus conflicting with work.

I work right around the Fleet Center, so it should be really convenient if anyone's interested. Lemme know at eyerishman34 at yahoo dot com if you're interested.

So does anyone think the game will go on tonight?

I'm working in Waltham and we haven't seen any snow yet, and the skies haven't looked particularly threatening.

"I'm working in Waltham"

What else would you do in Waltham? Hey-o.

So, uh, they say they'll wait as long as they can to get this game in. I'm fairly close to Fenway, and it was sleeting earlier. Right now there sems to be a lull. But cold and windy! So I'm off to the park to to the "Fen-wait." Oy.

Jere-
don't tell me that. I want them to cancel it ASAP.

Look what's about to hit Boston. It's in 30s and it feels like the twenties, and the rain is getting harder.

Cancel the game, boys, cancel the game.

Delay. This day is going to suck. Losing money, horrifically bad day at work, and now I get to sit out in the rain for 3 hours.

Not cool.

YES~!

"Game postponed
By Gordon Edes, Globe Staff

Today's scheduled Red Sox-Mariners game has been postponed due to the nasty weather in the area. No word yet on when it will be made up. "

WOOHOO! Instead of losing $45-90, and waiting in the rain, I get to see a beautiful game in the sun. Hallelujiah.
