I was around. But I hated Pete Rose. I was in Cincinnati when he was there, then I moved here and he followed!! :eek: I was a Johnny Bench fan back then. Had the battery operated Johnny Bench game (yeah, my dad wanted a boy earlier than he got one!) :)

Perhaps. Maybe he had on a lot of makeup tonight. I looked up some pictures of him on google, and he definitely looked different tonight than he did in his heyday. Did a great job of the anthem. Still has a nice voice.

Yes, it is. I'm actually glad I didn't get tickets. I'm a baby. No need to freeze my butt off in the rain and then fight the mobs trying to get out of there. I have 2 hearings first thing in the morning. Crawling in at midnight would not have been helpful.

I've played ball in really bad weather but rain with temps around forty it is miserable. I can't imagine pitching in weather ilke this. I can't pitch anyway, but i can throw a baseball and when the weather is cold like this, it's hard to do. Your fingers are numb.

This is miserable for all concerned.

I was worried about Cole Hamels' hand after that screwed up bunt attempt.

It would not be a good ending if it's called for weather. I don't like asterisks.

Me too. Unless the conditions become impossible, the umps won't call the game in what would or could be a final game of the world series. And Rightly so.

Bubba Dawg

Bad Deal. It is an official game so if it's called the Phillies win by default.

Not the way a series should end.

Tied now at the bottom of the inning.

I'm a traditionalist. I love the game.

At best, play the bottom of the inning. If it's still tied, call it for weather.

For the integrity of the game.

Yep, probably.

Last week I was in town for the game. Far away from the stadium...the streets were still hilarious when we left the bar at the end of the game. Everybody is friends after that. It was quite humorous.

I had to laugh at my game mates. 4 of us still in our suits (2 of the guys are each about 6'5'', so we kind of stoof out anyway), in a Thai/Asian place (that has wings at the bar for game night!), with 5 asian guys and 2 black guys at the bar by closing time.

I don't know why, but I found the whole thing humorous. The City of Brotherly Love.

Play the game.

First off, if the Phils were ahead 2-1 after the top of the sixth and the game did not restart, they would have been MLB Champs. No asterisks or anything of that nature. That's the rule of the game. Once it's official, it's official.

Bud Selig is the second biggest douche in the world. The guy was making it up as he went along last night. Threw the groundscrew and the weatherfolk under the bus. Then lied out his ass when he said that he told both teams beforehand that he would not allow a World Series game to end short. I don't particularly care for him hijacking the rules like that but I understand why.

The Rays players felt the pressure in the top of the sixth. They were all under the impression that if they did not score, they might lose a rain-shortened game. I wonder what Bud would have done if the Rays took the lead at that time? Call the game and give the Rays the win or put it in an indefinite rain delay like he said he was going to do if the Phils were ahead? What an ass.

That weather was pretty bad n the 5th, he should have had them put the tarp down then. It wouldn't have ben an official game then. That was football weather!!!

Not sure about the 14 places part but The Rays checked out of their hotel before they went to the game and couldn't get the rooms back. They bussed it down I-95 about 30 miles and are holed up in Wilmington, DE.

philly, I ALMOST drove passed the stadium last night to see if anyone was willing to part with their ticket stub so I could go to the last 3 innings of the game when it resumes.

I called my friend that works there to ask anyone that walked by whether or not they were going to come back to the game and if not to grab their stub. Got his freaking voicemail and he was home by the time he got the message. Freaking useless.
