Rain Delay

Tonight’s Sky Sox game was rained out. But, before it’s rained out there is a rain delay. And during a rain delay stuff happens. Like this:

Two dudes ran onto the field and slid on the tarp. One of them lost his shoes. Now both of them have to hang out with the police for a while.

These two Skeletors wandered about in the rain.

Yup. Them’s Skeletors alright.

Then they chilled on a rail because, you know, it was wet out.

Then they had to leave. Goodnight Skeletors.

There was also a karaoke contest and a lot more rain. The karaoke contest is what finally chased me out of there. Sounded like cats being boiled. Lots and lots of cats.

LeBron Decision 2014

In a shock move, All-World basketball player LeBron James choose to take his talents to the diamond and play the rest of the 2014 season with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.

The new point-foward for the Sky Sox, LeBron James.

“If it was good enough for MJ, it’s good enough for LBJ (me, LeBron James and not that salty dead president Lydon Baines Johnson),” the publicity shy superstar was overheard saying. “Plus, I hear they’re having Rudy’s in the pressbox tonight and I sure am hungry for some proper bar-b-que, some of that sweet tea and hot damn! That creamed corn they serve. Hell. The main reason I’m going with the Sox is that creamed corn. If they didn’t have that I’d probably just go back and play hoops in Cleveland, or something stupid like that,” continued a beaming LeBron.

Nolan Arenado Is Sad

Nolan Arenado can’t contain his disappointment after learning
he had to return to the Colorado Rockies.

“Hell. We went 3-2 here. The Rockies have only won 2 of their last 16 games and that team is just a black hole of injuries right now,” stated a stunned Arenado.

“If it were up to me I’d just stay down here for a while and, you know, hide out until things get better up there. Please. Can’t you talk to them. Let them know I’m still hurt and will be back maybe in August, or next year,” the Gold Glover added.
