[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. VI-14] Rain delay

I’ve been at plenty of outdoors sporting events with awful weather. Among some of these have been games that there was no delay, since most of the sports other than baseball/softball play on in any type of weather.

Here are some of the icky games that I have been to.

  • Northwestern vs. Michigan State football, 2013. The weather was frigid, and the Spartans ended the postseason hopes of the ‘Cats.
  • Nebraska vs. Nicholls State football, 2006. It was raining on and off all day. At least the Huskers blanked the Colonels!
  • Various Northwestern field hockey games in 2009 and 2010. Sheets of rain in the mid-afternoon!
  • Southeast vs. Millard South football, 2003. The Knights get knocked out of the playoffs in the first round on a chilly evening where my toes froze!
  • Nebraska vs. Northern Iowa in softball, 2007. A cold DOUBLEHEADER on baseball opening day!

There have been a few baseball or softball games that I have been to where the tarp has come out, such as Twins vs. Tigers in early June 2016, or others.

But today, it’s a first: a college football game (Carthage vs. Elmhurst) that I wanted to go to has been weather-delayed. But, it seems obvious as to why… see below.


Yikes-o-Matic! The game is delayed until 13:45 at the earliest.


Today is the fourteenth day of the sixth round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R. That makes two weeks.

Green Bay/St. Norbert: 20 days

Minneapolis: 27 days

Lincoln: 70 days
