My sweet lord.
Hmm, my lord.
Hmm, my lord.
I choose George Harrison today, because of the repetitive lyrics that can induce you into a trance. Much like the weather.
No seriously. I thought their was more to that song than that. It’s like the ‘Green Eggs & Ham’ of songs.
Snow is gone. Winter’s over. Snow is gone. Winter’s over.
Don’t believe me. Don’t believe the badly altered John Lennon lyrics? Don’t believe the picture? Well, maybe a certain gentleman by the name of Felix Cavaliere can convince you:
How can you argue with that?
Let’s PLAY BALL!
I have not heard anything, so I am guessing that the game one lineup for the doubleheader today is the same as it was last night.
Nick Shaw 2B
Reggie Keen CF
Cody Hawn 1B
Jason Rogers LF
Mike Walker DH
Greg Hopkins 3B
Tyler Roberts C
Carlos George SS
Franklin Romero RF
That being said. The tarp for the field has some damage to it. It leaked a bit.
The Burlington grounds crew was just having a discussion with Aaron Nieckula, the manager of the Bees, about the topic of the infield. Or at least I am guessing that is what they were talking about since they were standing right by it and doing a lot of pointing. I’m pretty sure that Aaron was not regaling them with the tale of him sliding around the infield here when he was the manager of the Cougars and was having an animated discussion with an umpire a couple of years ago.
The condition of the infield may be moot. More rain is scheduled in the forecast…I’m sorry did I say rain? I meant thunderstorms are forecast for 6pm.
Tonight’s game notes are here. A few slight changes have been made: RattlersGameNotesApril22
Check back here, @CMehring, @TimberRattlers, or Rattlers Facebook for updates on the game status.
IMMEDIATE UPDATE: It’s raining…again. The tarp is going on the field…again. Now, excuse me while I look for a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken. A live chicken would be too much…today. In a few days, we might have to talk that one through for a bit.
Still raining in Burlington, Iowa. The forecast…well…..see for yourself.
I got a little artsy with these…or the weather has washed all color out of the world. Either one really. As always click for a larger glimpse into the depth of my despai….for a larger image.
This is how hard it was raining when I was getting ready to leave Community Field last night.
If one light in the picture is good…two lights in the picture is better:
I can’t find the picture I was trying to plagari….I mean do an homage to with this shot of Community Field from the outside:
This picture was taken from my hotel window after I hear A LARGE CLAP OF THUNDER this morning.
Stitch these last two pictures together and make a panorama of the view from my hotel window.
These views are almost asking you to head to the casin….lunch buffet.
Doubleheader tonight…Fingers Crossed…Stay tuned!
Thanks to the ever helpful TV Tropes website for the title to this post.
If you saw the previous post on Rattler Radio, you will have followed the progress of the snow today.
Well, here is are pictures taken right about when the first pitch of Tuesday’s game would have been thrown:
Sorry. I just ran out of gas and couldn’t think of a clever caption without PROFANITY!!!!!!!….um, er, ahem….
When people ask me what I remember about this homestand at the end of the year, snow will be the last thing on my mind. Even though there has been a pretty good ‘Thunder & Lightning’ show happening outside my window for the last three hours. Yes. It’s called thundersnow…er, THUNDERSNOW!!!
Nope. Won’t remember that. I prefer to remember this moment from Sunday’s doubleheader. I swiped it from the Timber Rattlers Facebook album. I hope they don’t mind.
There was a roster move earlier today.
Catcher Cameron Garfield has been placed on the 7-Day Disabled List
Catcher Tony Pechek has been transferred to the Rattlers from Helena.
Pechek is active for tonight’s game
I don’t know what is wrong with Garfield. There is this little thing called HIPPA.
The weather has turned distinctively cooler and windier in Cedar Rapids, but the rain will – apparently – hold off for the evening.

Nick Shaw hit his first professional home run in the Rattlers 9-3 win over Kane County to open the 2011 season.
The thing I noticed from the booth was how happy his teammates were for him. Happy. That’s one word for it:
Again. I wish this were clearer. Maybe the highlights will have a better shot of it.
UPDATE: Well, unfortunately, the highlights from the in stadium cam did not include the homer. But…HEY! Highlights on YouTube!
By the way, that was a Chili’s ‘Rattlers Win, You Win’ victory tonight. If you were one of the 3,234 fans at Time Warner Cable Field tonight, you should have received a coupon good for free chips & queso at the Appleton Chili’s.
I think this is going to be a fun season! More in the morning.
