Weather's a-comin'

The meteorologists at the local weather station have forecasted wetness for the next seven days. Will the Red Stockings open this year's campaign on time, or will the lush greenery of Fenway have to wait for a sunny day to host this year's opening contest?

I sincerely hope it is the former, for Stuffy and I have laboriously shifted our schedules to accommodate the day-time tilt. And should rain come, your friends Stuffy and Hurdy will be stuck drinking flagons of ale and enjoying cocktail weiners by the dozen without benefit of listening to base-ball over the crackling wireless.

No, sir, the ale and wieners alone do not make an afternoon. After months of pining, I am ready for base-ball.

Please let me have it.
