"A Rain Out and A Fall Out..."

We attempt to assist Coach Paul Maineri during episodes of threatening weather at Alex Box Stadium. I sympathize with Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig and his decision in 2008. It was the fifth game of the World Series and Selig processed the opinions of weather experts predicting a rain-out. The Commissioner postponed the game. It became the first time in history that a World Series game was suspended with just 0.13 inches of rain recorded. Last Friday we were confident that the LSU-Southeastern game would experience only pops of light rain. The opposite occurred as thunderstorm cells tracked over the stadium constituting a rain out. If weather rains-out a game after five innings, it's recorded as an official game and the team with the most runs, unlike the weatherman, wins.
