The game was delayed after the top of the sixth tonight. And what are we fans left to do? The twin combination of wondering what the hell is going on and being bored to death.
With all the modern technology at the stadium, couldn't someone have explained to the fans who sat through the rain delay what the situation was? What the possibilities were? What the forecast was? How long they were thinking of waiting? No announcements were made, and fans were left playing whisper-down-the-lane and guessing what to do in the horrible weather and how long we were going to be left there.
And we were left there for about an hour with absolutely no entertainment. The jumbotron (or whatever they call it these days) featured a spinning Phillies World Series emblem the entire time. No season flashbacks. No 1980 video. No weather radar. Hell, I'm sure everyone there would have loved watching an episode of Two and a Half Men (ok, maybe not). Anything to take our minds off the fact that we were cold, wet, and potentially being screwed out of our first World Series championship in 28 years.
But no. The people who run CBP gave us no updates and no entertainment. Brilliant.
