It's a Very Blustery Day, Pooh.
Hang on, Toto, we're back in Kansas! This is the unusual cloud that loomed over the K-State/Central Florida game in Manhattan on Saturday. As we awaited kickoff, marble-sized raindrops began to fall sporadically so I ran to the stadium store to get rain ponchos for all of us. Darn that weatherman, anway! Absolutely no mention of rain in the forecast I read so we were unprepared for a thunderstorm. Two minutes into the game - while I was waiting in line with 27,000 other rain-gear-less fans - the powers-that-be called a 30-minute lightning delay. "How sweet," I thought "They are protecting the players and staff by taking them into the locker rooms, and leaving 50,000 fans sitting on metal bleachers."
