Indians players get bored, use tarp as Slip ‘N Slide during rain delay

- August 13th, 2014

Nobody likes a rain delay.

Not fans, not working media, not ballpark employees, not players.

OK, maybe, just maybe, that last group has a secret crush on rain delays.

Evidence: The actions of Cleveland Indians players Tuesday night while their game against the Arizona Diamondbacks was at a standstill.

During the weather delay — the game was ultimately called and rescheduled for Wednesday due to soggy conditions at Progressive Field – the Indians Twitter account kept the world abreast on all the shenanigans.

Here’s all you need to know, summed up in five tweets and an Instagram post:

  • First, the obligatory ahhhh, man, this sucks post
  • Then, the back-to-back oh, oh, let’s imagine the funny things our players could be doing! posts
  • Now, the first-hand accounts from the clubhouse start rolling in

  • And the big finale, which is equal parts predictable and awesome
