I’ve been telling my wife for the last two weeks that we needed a good rain. Not a rain storm, just a good rain. Mainly, I’m lazy and don’t want to water our yard but last night kind of did the trick. But yeah, that downside was huge with the storm lasting as long as it did, causing FC Dallas’ game to be delayed for more than three hours. So things are a tad light today on the link front, but we’ll pick it up from here as we break down last night’s game.
