At first it was just a sprinkle. Then the winds picked up. Then the monsoon rolled in, dropping buckets of rain on Wrigley Field. All of it was too much for the grounds crew, who tried desperately to get the tarp down before the infield flooded. They failed and it led to a several hour delay. Sometime in the middle of the night, the umps gave up too and called the game in the fifth inning.
The blooper reel is perfect when set to Yakety Sax.
And here’s just some of the flooding it caused.
