    UL Baseball Saturday Game 6PM

    Thank goodness they moved this game to 6pm for "heat" safety reasons. I'd hate to see folks passing out, in that sweltering 57 degree heat. In my 40 some odd years of living in this state, I never remember it being all that hot in April, to where you couldn't play day baseball on any surface, natural or artificial. As a 20 some odd year fan of Cajun baseball, I like the Friday night, Saturday and Sunday afternoon for at best. (When I was in school and for a while after, he it was double header on sat one sun.) Who ever came up with the idea of Saturday night baseball in April is just foolish. And to blame it on heat is just stupid.

    If you saw, read or heard "heat" it was probably a cut and paste delay statement that wasn't fully edited to fit the current situation.

    Stormy weather not temp would be true.

    I like night games. Always more electric atmosphere in my opinion. i would also be willing to bet they get more ppl through the gate for evening games than day games on average.

    I have heard an athletic department study has shown it makes no difference in the crowd. But I would have thought just the opposite as most people have there social outings on weekend nights not days. You know you can make a Saturday afternoon game and go out to dinner or have a barbecue or attend a cocktail party. Things us Cajun folk do.

    Heat was the reason stated for moving all games on Saturdays in April and May. I think it's a bogus reason as April has never been a very hot month.

    Another thing to be aware of tonight, if your going to the game, is the rodeo going on, in the dome. I have passed by cajun field in years past and they usually take up all the east and north parking lots and much of the west when there is no other event going on. I have also noticed in past years on the Sunday morning after this event they do not like to use trash cans. Has to be the most trash I have ever seen, in the parking lot, after a cajun dome / field event.

    Oh ok.

    I thought you read something about tonight's game because you said "this game" in your post.

    I wonder why it would not be possible to have a floating time for Saturday games in April. Today would obviously be better with an afternoon start but that is not always the case.

    I've actually heard tony say at diamond club one time the real reason they moved it to 6 was by the time the game is over and the team gets to Cowboys $1 beer is over and they won't be too hungover on Sunday.

    I guess it all depends on whether one views things as a KajunKrazy or a crazycajun

    In the future... we will have every seat with a butt... and then we will turn our focus on only having really nice butts in the seats... preferably in thong. I've sent Dr. Maggard an addendum to the Master Plan. It's 528 pages of how to make UL "Thong U"... and get us massive TV time and eventually our own worldwide network. If we really want to get serious about UL... I will gladly share "Thong Manifesto" with the UL Illuminati. Of course, we will have to get full agreement from the DOD and the CIA... since I forced them to sign NDAs in order to incorporate Thong Technology into all future US and Earth invasion defense. Damn... I've said too much. Anyway, there's great things happening behind the scenes at UL... needless to say.

    After Easter has been the dividing time. Easter was early this year. He started doing this after the turf was put in......because on hot days, it's 10 to 15 degrees hotter on the turf. Two days in a row of that, when it is really hot can be avoided.

    I am one that likes the Saturday night games so I can do ish in the daytime and still get to see the game.

    Guys, just to let you in on one of many great ideas I'm sharing with Dr. Maggard... on page 77 of the addendum to the UL Athletics Master Plan... when a young coed shows up at one of our home athletic events wearing a purple thong... ten of our young coeds wearing our awesome vermilion thongs... shimmy up the aisle to the row where the purple thong coed is sitting... and they heckle her into taking off her purple thong... and putting on a vermilion thong... all while dancing around in the aisle with our coeds. This is all captured on the "UL World Network".

    This is just one of many tremendous ideas I've shared with Dr. Maggard. Well... technically... I've sent them to him... and there's apparently a miscommunication... whereas someone without an imagination and good business sense has intercepted them and sent them to the UL attorneys. I'm guessing they want to make sure there's no legal issues before signing my "Partnering Agreement" and commencing with Project UL THONG (Us Loving Thread Hugging Our Naughty Gear).

    Thong stuff is old, overplayed, and it wasn't even funny 10 years ago. Just my opinion.
