I can see it now… April 5th, 2010. Opening day for the Minnesota Twins coming off of their promising 87 win 2009 season.
But… opening day at the new ballpark will have to wait because there is 7 inches of snow on the field, and it\’s still coming down.
Now April snow isn\’t a guarantee in the frozen tundra, but it certainly isn\’t unheard of either. Nor is a month of solid rain (anyone remember June of 2004 when there were two days it didn\’t rain?).
Not putting a roof on the new Twins stadium (I boldly predict) will be a huge mistake.
Of course a bigger mistake would be for the great State of Minnesota to foot the bill for it.
Ah well, it\’ll just make for a lot of double headers… nothing wrong with 6 hours of baseball (or drinking).
