Play Misty For Me: Cubs, White Sox Hilariously Play In Heavy Fog

Brandon Phillips is The Smoke Monster. On a ridiculous fog-shrouded day at Wrigley Field (I mean, look at the field), Phillips had a grand slam and drove in all six of the Reds’ runs in a 6-2 win over the Cubs.

We used to play fog ball when we were kids, but we used a softball, and if things got really bad you could always just go home and no one would know for about four innings. They played through the soup at Wrigley, but across town, the White Sox delayed their game due to the fog (see below). It’s back on now, however.

    Reminds me of a great quote from my childhood, courtesy of Red Sox pitcher Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd…..

    “That’s what they get for building a park on the ocean.” – Oil Can Boyd, after a 1986 Red Sox-Indians game at Cleveland Municipal Stadium (on the shore of Lake Erie) was postponed due to fog.
