Admit it, one of the most exciting things about Tuesday night's game was watching the White Sox' grounds crew battling the wind and the rain before finally, finally wrestling the tarp to the ground. Not sure how they got it done, but nice job.

Kudos to Comcast for picking one of the worst performances ever by a Cubs team in the City Series to show during the rain delay.

Send in the crowds:

A second straight non-sellout for the City Classic?

In fact a total of 35,155 in the house at the Cell, even fewer than Monday night's all-time low mark.

Funniest moment:

The quote:

"You have to soak as much out of it as you can."

-- Paul Konerko on his impressive display of power
