Snowed Out?

Rainy Days of Yesteryear….What to Do?

Updated – 5:26pm – The game has been rescheduled for July 12th - The Cubs and Astros will now play a 4-game series at Wrigley the first weekend after the All-Star Break.

It is snowing at Wrigley and today’s game between the Astros and Cubs has been postponed and a makeup date has not been announced…..this was the first game cancelled due to snow at Wrigley since April 7, 2003. So without a game today to discuss, feel free to talk about anything Cubs or baseball related. Take this opportunity to send the conversation in anyway you see fit, just remember everyone here is on the same side….

If you are tired of ‘Talkin’ Cubs’, I have included a ‘rainy day’ post from last season for a little bit of fun and a walk down memory lane.

So does anyone remember back in the day when there was a rain delay the telecast would go to another form of….well baseball? Whether it was This Week in Baseball with Mel Allen, not that TWIB thing they have now or old reruns of “Home Run Derby” that was actually shot at Wrigley Field (West). Nowadays it is some variety of sitcom rerun from the 80’s or early 90’s. Give me the classic baseball footage any day….not some Fresh Prince of somewhere in Cali.

I thought we could honor Harry Caray and play a “Remember When Name Game”….

Harry always had a “way” with names; does anyone remember Sixto Lezcano? So how many names from yesteryear can you guys throw out and no cheating….I know you are at your computer and if you spell Greg Luzinski right….well you might have cheated. Who are some of those great names that we grew up with? It does not have to remain in a certain decade and they do not have to have played for the Cubs.

Ten points to the person with the best name from yesteryear….and Kent Tekulve does not count….a shout out and a hat tip to friend of the site, Holden Kushner from XM Radio for the idea behind this post.
