Used to be, about the only weather delay we'd face was baseball.
Now, as many high school and college teams have witnessed, football is subjected to pool rules. If there is a lightning strike near a stadium, everybody involved on the field goes to the locker room and there is a mandatory 30-minute delay.
Every lightning strike adds another half-hour.
UCA and Nicholls State have experienced a lightning delay Saturday.
During baseball rain delays, we see players playing sliding on the turf.
On a football lightning delay, the field is vacant.
Hurry up and wait.
