The culmination of all the hype and excitement building up for the Yankees’ last season in the House that Ruth Built will have to wait at least one more day.
The New York Yankees were set to kick off the 2008 season today, with two-time 19-game winner Chien-Ming Wong to take the mound against the much-improved Toronto Blue Jays. But it was not to be: an outburst of precipitation from Mother Nature has forced MLB to postpone the festivities until tomorrow (Tuesday) at 7:05 PM EDT, which was scheduled as an off-day for both teams. Perhaps someone in the MLB offices anticipated such a downpour?
Well, it stinks to have to wait another day for the Yankees’ season to start, but at least I’ll be home from work in tome tomorrow to watch it on TV.
