Yes, Tucson, People Do Play Soccer In The Rain

Posted By on Sat, Jan 26, 2013 at 8:35 AM

All of us who have lived here for a while have, at one time or another, gloated to our friends and family in some less-weather-friendly place about how perfect the climate here is most of the time.

Emphasis on the word most of the time. Well, today is one of those days not to gloat about, thanks to this strange wet stuff falling out of the sky.

Nevertheless, just because there might be a little bit of moisture — I believe the overpaid weather people on local TV call it 'rain' — coming down, that does not mean today's Canada-Denmark international soccer friendly isn't still going to be held at Kino Stadium.

Because, believe it or not, in other parts of the world, this type of weather is considered the rule, not the exception, and the sports must go on. Just ask the fans of the Portland and Seattle MLS teams when they come down here over the next few weeks.

Knowing how weather fickle the locals are, the good folks at FC Tucson have put together a little pick-me-up post to keep people excited about the match today. Please enjoy ... and then get over the fact it's not 75 and sunny and go watch some soccer!
