I don’t understand why everyone is making such a big fuss over washed out streets, bridges and cars. A greater problem has been created by Floodhoma:
The cancelation of kickball. Every week (see Carrie Coppernoll’s column in today’s metro section) a group of OPUBCO’s finest (not really, there is a team from LOOK@OKC who is better) gets together for kickball.
Or at least we try. Like clockwork – or a sick joke – it always rains on Tuesday and Wednesday, flooding the fields at Boomtown Ballyards, 801 NW 122.
The only positive that comes from the weekly cancelation is that our record doesn’t get worse. We might not be the best team in the league – or this building for that matter – but a little rain does not scare us.
But that team with the high socks, face paint, knee braces and matching uniforms – they, however, do. I’ve seen how hard (and where) they peg base runners and I don’t want any part of that.
On second thought, keep on raining, baby.
