Lou has a pretty interesting connection to baseball

He was offered a contract by the NY Giants (baseball) as a catcher and turned it down because the Giants had a catcher set in stone and he wanted to coach instead and wound up coaching in the Cape Cod league - it was there that he got Bobby Valentine to play for him and the two remain good friends today

and then of course the Yankee connection as a minority owner and a close friend of papa Steinbrenner when he was around - Steinbrenner was at game 7 of the 03 finals watching from Lou's office

Cool News! I knew about his connection to baseball but not as a minority owner of the Yanks.

(Don't mind me, I just need to vent)

Note to self: Stop buying tickets ahead of time.

Doing a road trip with old roommates to Phoenix this weekend to catch some Spring Training games along with the WBC. Due to lack of communication/reading comprehension by my friends, I have to sell USA/Canada tickets for a loss.

Then I went out and bought tickets for Dodgers/Giants for Friday. Since I'm a spoiled person from San Diego, I didn't even think to check the weather. Yesterday, I'm watching the news and there's an 80% chance of rain here locally. I immediately check to see if that would affect Phoenix.......and they similarly have a 70% chance of rain. Now I'm worried about the murky return policy since I bought the tickets through StubHub.

Stubhub should essentially give you your money back if the event doesn't happen. That's generally their policy. Now if the game gets re-scheduled, that may change things. That's where things get a little tricky and you'll have to look into their policy a bit more.
