Rain Washes Out Sports

The latest tropical storm to make landfall has certainly caused its share of flooding and destruction, and it also brought the world of sports to a halt. The slow moving front is headed northward, so expect to see some delays as it continues to bring its rainy grey skies and wind on up the country.

All of the Tuesday matches at the French Open were canceled due to the weather, including matches between Donald Young and Andy Murray and John Isner and Gilles Simon.

Rain soaked Atlanta, which actually suffered from tornado damage as well, is seeing numerous weather-related cautions slow things down at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Of course, the rain didn’t wash everyone. The Maryland – Miami game went on as scheduled and the Terrapins won the day 32-24. It was coach Randy Edsall’s first win as Maryland’s head coach. While Edsall took none of the credit for the victory, he certainly deserves some of it, as his team-effort approach has clearly paid off for the team. His players shone, especially Danny O’Brien, Cameron Chism and Nick Ferrara.
