More Rain Delays at French Open
The French Open is acting a bit like its more popular cousin, Wimbledon, this week by allowing rain to interfere with the tournament. Six hours of action was lost Tuesday because of torrential rain. Above, workers at Roland Garros sweep water from a clay court in preparation for play.
I mentioned below that I’m about to pull the plug on The Rainout Blog, but also I think it’s worth mentioning that this is the 300th post to the blog since I began this nonsense nearly two years ago. I’ll have to check the rules, but I think 300 posts, like 300 wins for a major league pitcher, may get me extra consideration for the blogging hall of fame.
