    Yeah, I just stepped out for lunch and it's gross out.

    Stadium is bound to be empty today/tn.

    I know this has happened with other teams. Those teams made the Opening Day tickets good for (in this case) the Wednesday game and re-scheduled the Wednesday game.

    Either way, I am happy to be sitting home today. It is really cold and raw outside.
    Given that the forecast tomorrow is not encouraging, do they make Thursday's game against the Orioles opening day if tomorrow is also washed out?

    At least Thursday's forecast is for no rain - it is the only day this home stand that does not have rain forecast.

    Come rain snow or hail. Weather be darned.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    No opening day ceremonies I imagine. That kills the fun of the home opener. Oh well.

    Just heard Kay on YES refer to yesterday as "Snow-pening Day," or as I heard it, "Snopening Day."

    It reminded me that "snopen" is Swedish for "disappointed."

    And the weather inspired Kay to a pretty good zinger (I thought):

    "The grounds crew are sprinkling drying agent on the mound. Like most agents, it soaks up about 10%."

    Of course! Did you stay to the end? I admit I left at the pitching change in the bottom of the eighth.

    I was in da building yesterday. Attendance announced as 40,000 but clearly a number of fans came dressed as blue seats. Maybe 30,000 max in attendance.

    I left a game early only once. 2005 the Yanks were losing to KC and when the Yanks brought in Embree to pitch I figured Torre was throwing in the towel. Yanks scored five in the 9th to win it and I heard about it when people started celebrating on the train halfway back to New Haven. I have never left early again.

    LOL - same idea. My one early departure was the game finally won in the rain by a Giambi grand slam in the 14th inning!

    I was there too on Tuesday....went into the Team Store at the top of the 8th to unthaw and left top of 9. agree with all previous comments already posted...mlb needs to do a better job of the scheduling if they intend to start this early

    It's raining in Detroit, and probably will all day today and tomorrow.
