Jackets Hoops Called Because of Rain

I've told you before that I really don't pay much attention to basketball, and here's proof: I totally missed the news last night about Virginia's game at Georgia Tech being rained out.

Well, technically, the game was called off because of a leaky roof at Alexander Memorial Coliseum. Initially, tipoff was postponed for 20 minutes, but then the game was called off when maintenance crews at the arena could not guarantee the leaks would stop. The court was wet in the lane near the Yellow Jackets' bench.

Weather forecasts had called for between two and three inches of rain in the Atlanta area Thursday night. The two schools are working on a make-up date.

The Jackets and Cavs stink this year, so I'm not sure anyone really cares if the game is ever played. However, there is one postponement at the University of Virginia that I'm sure will tick off a lot of folks on this Friday night. The Van Halen concert has been postponed.
