I want to ride my bicycle. I want to ride my bike. - Freddie Mercury

"Bicycle Race" is a single by the British rock band Queen. It was released on their 1978 album Jazz and written by Queen's lead singer Freddie Mercury.

I owned that album.

Yay!  It looks like it all blew in faster than expected.  They have moved the "strong" thunderstorms earlier in to the afternoon.  By 7pm it should just be lingering rain.  This is very good news as, if this holds, we don't have to worry about a/much lightning delay.

East and NE wind during gametime means my nosebleed west side C seats will be nice and dry.  ;D ;D

100-level peeps, and those in the "wrong" 200 areas are gonna wanna bringo la poncho.  And don't forget to bring a towel!

The only question left is: shorts or pants?
Never go full Rider!

It sounds like we will get rain during the game but the thunderstorms look like they will hit before game time, sometime in the afternoon. I don't expect a rain delay.

The thunderstorm risk hourly thing keeps changing.  On my way out now and I'm going to bet on no t.storms, but it's back on the radar again.  Should all be over by 9pm though so even if there is lightning, it won't run the 3 hours and we will get a full game.

Then a spitting rain as we all leave the stadium.

The weather will favor a run game.  Who has the better one??

I checked out the linked CFL weather page. As Ron Popeil would say, "But wait - there's more!"

Short of the point differential:
If the teams DO NOT PLAY each other again, the weather-delayed game will be considered a tie and both teams will be awarded one point.

If the teams DO PLAY each other again, the teams will participate in a two-possession shootout prior to their next meeting, whereby:

Each team gets two possessions starting at the 55-yard line to commence their shootout drive. For each point scored prior to the weather stoppage, teams gain one-yard towards the opposition?s endzone, which determines the club?s starting point for each drive.
e. If Team A leads Team B (15-0) in the weather-delayed game, Team A would start both drives at the 40-yard line, while Team B would begin both drives from the 55-yard line.
The team which trailed the weather-delayed game starts both possessions. If the suspended game was tied, the visiting club starts both. Teams alternate for the four total drives.
The leading team prior to the delay determines which end the opposition drives towards. If tied, the home team chooses.
If a touchdown is scored, the team must go for two points.
The winner of the two-possession shootout is awarded two points for the suspended game, while a tie results in both teams receiving one point.
Following the shootout, there will be a normal quarter break before the new game commences.

Its 530pm and I live about a mile from the stadium and it is absolutely pouring with lightning and thunder. Hopefully this will pass by before the game starts but it would not surprise me if the game is delayed a bit
