If it's raining, we must have a game scheduled....

Spring comes sporadically in the Midwest; many years we go from Winter to Summer in Chicago with no transition at all. This has been a warm Spring, and, generally, a nice one, weather-wise. But once youth baseball starts, all bets are off.

Take this week for instance: To everyone's chagrin and dismay, I coach Youngest Son's Pony League team. We have only one game scheduled this week, on Wednesday. Youngest Son also has games scheduled with his grammar school team on Tuesday and Thursday.

Yesterday, the weather was nice -- but, then, we didn't have a game. But today, Wednesday, and Thursday? Tom Skilling says we may have the most rain we've had all year.

I begin to take this all personally....
