You know what would stink?
If I had asked off work Thursday, as I had contemplated, to watch the Nationals’ Opening Day game in Cincinnati. And then to find out the news…
That’s right, Opening Day baseball in Cincinnati has been postponed until Friday because of forecasted inclement weather in the city. That forecast is calling for about a 70 percent chance of rain.
The game has been rescheduled for 4:10 p.m., Friday. Max Scherzer is on the mound for the good guys. Homer Bailey is pitching for the home team.
Fans planning to attend Opening Day festivities in Detroit should keep their eyes and ears open for a possible rescheduled of the Tigers’ game with the Pirates Thursday. Rain is expected – about an 85 percent chance – at the scheduled 1 p.m. start.
