Day 11: Rain Game
There really isn’t that much to comment on from last night. We went through the whole pregame routine and literally one second after the National Anthem was over, the umpires told us to put the tarp on. I thought that I would miss my first opportunity to start at the Duck Pond, but the playing schedule got moved back one day. During the one-hour rain delay, we sat in the clubhouse and listened to music. I would have loved to do something like the video above (how we got onto ESPN in the spring), but there were tornado sirens and they would not let us outside. Overall, it was a bummer and we will try again tonight.
After the game got postponed, some of the team went to eat at Brickhouse BBQ in downtown Madison. That place was awesome and probably a little too expensive for a college kid with no income. We stayed there for two hours and I came home and immediately crashed. During the school year, I average a little less than six hours of sleep a night, but in the summer, I get back to around eight. Sleep is a necessary part of an athlete’s success- ask Stephen Curry, who swears by getting eight everyday.
Tonight’s forecast doesn’t look pretty- but if the storms stay away, we can get a game in.
