What’s The Rainout Blog about?

Good question – one I’m asked a lot.

It’s about weather – mostly bad – imposing itself on our sporting events, sometimes causing inconvenient delays… sometimes inflicting massive consequences on the games we love.

This is not a science blog. This blog is an appreciation for the aesthetics of rain, sleet, snow, wind, fog – and whatever else nature can toss at us – playing a role in sports

The Rainout Blog is about the gleeful feeling we get when we turn on a Packers’ game in December and see snow pouring and accumulating on Lambeau Field.

It’s about two-hour and 40 minute rain delays at Yankee Stadium.

It’s about fog gathering on the ice at the old Boston Garden during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

It’s about tennis players adjusting to wet clay after a storm at Roland Garros.

It’s about NFL players braving the heat of August training camps.

Yep, that’s it!

That’s what the Rainout Blog is all about.
