I must have no life at all. Planning to watch the game or at least the first two innings.

The cloudy weather and the threat of rain down here means that I am probably will be subjected to watching the game as it is on WGN today.

Rain delay-- perfect. Now it's back to reading about Washington and early America.

Any word on when they will get this one started? I'm not watching FSN's rain delay programming for the billionth time this season.

They just came on and they said they do plan to play the game today no matter what time it is. They said they plan to wait it out.

Almost a 4 hour rain delay. That is crap. They couldn't have make this decision earlier. Screw Chicago.

At this point I think a rain delay is just as good as a W.

Or at least one hell of a moral victory.

Hope this day off helps Burgh refocus on fundamentals.

Dejan reports that it rained for only 20 minutes at Wrigley all day.

Glad I decided to go up to the lake for some swimming and fishing.

I listened to part of the game during the rain delay yesterday and have to say Rocco did a great job of dealing with the vocal, uninformed people calling in that dont usually get the flagship station during the season...

People calling saying Russell makes bad lineups, then Rocco would say "how would you put together the lineup?", then there is radio silence followed by ummm's and then back to saying Russell sucks...

Thats just an example...He came with his 'A' Game for the rain delay yesterday
