Game Called

... is the name of a beautiful baseball poem by the acclaimed writer Grantland Rice.

It's also what happened yesterday to the Cubs, anticipating their first spring training game with the Giants in Scottsdale, instead finding a chill rain, and believe me, when it's raining in the desert, it's miserable and cold. Barry Bonds was spotted in the dugout talking to Dusty Baker, wearing a stocking cap. It leads my friends at the Cubs newsgroup to discuss all sorts of weird topics, including movies, ADD and ... well, you go read it.

Today's Phoenix-area forecast isn't much better -- so today's game may also be called.

In just two weeks, I'll be there myself and will personally report to you here on the exhibition games. Hope the weather warms up by then.
