Rain, rain, go away

Really, I want there to be as much rain and snow as possible this wet season. But not tonight, not when the Tracy High varsity football team is playing its first-round playoff game on grass.

Sloppy conditions are likely to hamper the Bulldogs; their biggest assets are athleticism and what-was-that-blur-oh-now-he's-past-the-secondary-and-into-the-end-zone speed.

Sludge slows speed, and if the heavens open up as forecasters have been predicting all week, what the Bulldogs hope is a track meet could devolve into a slug-fest.

Rain would make for entertaining football. But at least for one more night, I'd like to see it stay nice and dry.
