It's a slow weather day in the sports world. Let's face it; sports could use a break following the past few weeks in which 22 baseball games have been postponed because of snow and rain, an MLB team had to switch cities to get out of the snow, and huge nor'easter hit the U.S forcing seven major league postponements in one day. We've even see weather affect the Boston Marathon, NASCAR, golf, tennis, soccer, and spring football on many college campuses. So today we offer what we call Sprinkles, links to sports-weather stories from the past few days that you may have missed.

Nick Saban's debut in Tuscaloosa got off to a wet start.

Mike Hameluck, a former Winnipeg Blue Bomber of the Canadian Football League, would like to the team's new stadium to include a roof so everyone will have a pleasant day at the game, and no players will drown. What a wuss! I may have to address this in more detail later.

Rain and lightning delayed a college baseball game between Texas A&M and the University of Houston until late in the morning Tuesday. "I would say that we won't see the last pitch of this game until one in the morning," said Aggie baseball play-by-play radio announcer Dave South to the A&M student newspaper. "It's probably going to be a long night."

The weather is playing havoc with high school sports in (pick a town, any town). This story happens to come from Massachusetts. Name of the team that is the subject of this Berkshire Eagle story: Hurricanes. Of Course.

USA Today's The Weather Guys chimed in Tuesday about the effect the harsh spring rain and snow has had on the MLB season thus far.

It's raining men at Shea Stadium
