Tuesday night May 20th, it feels closer to March as the temperature dropped at Yanqui Stadium following the day's heavy rains. The Bombers lost before we even arrived at our seats in the top of the 2nd.

As said by an Obama supporter late one night this weekend..."they're (W.V & KY) just not wanted."
