The Tribe's doubleheader with Seattle has been canceled
I was awoken yesterday by a text message from a friend in Seattle, who wanted to know if the Mariners and Indians were likely to get in their game. I took one look out my window, saw a snow drift the size of Maryland parked atop my car, and texted him back: "Not a chance."
A few minutes ago, my friend, who apparently has nothing better to do, sent me another text: "Baseball?" I thought 'yes,' but then got an email from the Indians. Apparently the entire Mariners' series — today's double header included -- has been cancelled
, due to the fact that Mother Nature feels like flicking the Rust Belt's ear for a few day's longer
. Now the league has moved the Indians' series against the Angels
, set to start tomorrow, to Milwaukee. Because, you know, the weather in Milwaukee is just dandy.
So, I texted my friend back: "No baseball." He responded: "Bullshit town."
