I'm a bit pissed at the Red Sox management tonight.

I had tickets to see the Sox take on the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway tonight. It had been raining most of the day in Boston, but things had slowed to a light mist by the time we headed into Boston for the 7:10 start. The kids and I took the Green Line from Newton Center to Kenmore, had our traditional pre-game dinner at UBurger in Kenmore Square and headed into the ballpark. It was not raining at this point.

We got to our seats around 6:45 and the tarp is still on the field. It seems the Red Sox forecasts showed a rain storm coming into the area and they obviously didn't want to start the game and have to delay it, especially with a doubleheader tomorrow.

By 8:15 we decided to give up. It didn't appear the game was going to start any time soon, and the kids have to get up fairly early for their first day of Sunday School tomorrow. We headed to the legendary Cabots Ice Cream in Newton to drown our sorrows.

The thing that got us is that IT NEVER RAINED. The Sox and Rays could have started on time and gotten the game in. Instead, they inconvenienced thousands of fans by starting 2 hours and 5 minutes late. Worst of all, for me, is that they disappointed my kids (ice cream only does so much). And now they're pulling the tarp back on at 11 PM in the top of the 6th.

I understand that Sox management had to make a call. They made the wrong one tonight.
