I had another friend from out of town this weekend so we went to another Rangers game.
It was my first experience with Rain Delays (thanks to the Kingdom & Safeco Field). The game started about 40 minutes late and there were another 3 or 4 delays after that. We got pretty wet, but it was still a ton of fun. The typical three hour game – which was supposed to start at 7 pm, didn’t end until after 12.
One really cool thing is that so many people went home with each rain delay is that there were tons of empty seats. The first game interrupting delay came during the 5th so they couldn’t call it yet, and each time they stopped, we expected them to just end the game. But they kept resuming and we eventually moved down by the third base line By the top of the 9th, we were a few rows up from home plate.
I’ll have to post some pictures of the night and our progression to better seats.
