Larry Lucchino is currently on WEEI's morning show and has said today's opening day game at Fenway has been canceled, and rescheduled for tomorrow at 4:05pm. Larry sounded very optimistic in regards to getting the game in tomorrow. The cancellation will likely change Brad Penny's expected start date, but it has yet to be officially announced.
This brings up the natural question....why is the first game of the season in, early April, at Fenway anyways? As much as I like opening day, shouldn't this series be played in Tampa? The Sox usually spend the first handful of series on the road as the Boston weather continues to slowly improve over the month of April.
Either way, my balloon of excitement has been popped and the office party has been slightly ruined.....until 4:05pm tomorrow.
