Last night's postponement of the Yankees' and Angels' ALCS Game 6 may have seemed appropriate, given the deluge, but fans who showed up at Yankee Stadium were fuming. A woman who drove five hours hoping to see the Yankees clinch things told the Daily News, "This is ridiculous. They can play in this weather. I wouldn't be so angry if I didn't have to work Monday morning, but if the game goes late tomorrow I still have to drive home."
And five hours is nothing compared to the family from El Paso, Texas that drove to stadium—the News says, "The Ortiz family couldn't stay for tonight's makeup game because the dad has to be back at work tomorrow morning." The game was called two hours before the 8:20 p.m. start time; one man griped, "Of course, they still make us pay for parking. Do I get my $30 back? Nah, of course not."
As for the Yankees themselves, they were calm. Mariano Rivera said, "It's one day off, that's it. We have been through this. We have to wait. I was ready to play [last night] and will be ready [tonight]," and Mark Teixeira said, "We've had so many days off this entire postseason. A short series the first series , waiting around, then travel days. You just kinda get used to it." Nick Swisher remarked about the $1.5 billion structure, "The man upstairs didn't think it was time for us to play. We were ready to play, but rain happens and we don't have a roof."
