Carlos Zambrano did indeed look rejuvenated yesterday. But the weather had other plans, and Zambrano's three perfect innings went for naught. No makeup date has been announced.

You know, I don't normally mind the rain -- a few notable exceptions being the times that storms have resulted in an unwanted basement swimming pool -- but the last few weeks have been pretty darn exasperating. For the second time in three weeks, my weekend 16-inch softball games (I play a mean center field) have been washed out. When you drive by and see a small pond where the infield used to be, and, in fact, when only the backstop and fences remind you that said small pond is actually a softball field, you know there won't be any games played for a while.

So which gets you down more rainy days or Mondays?

1 I've got to go with Mondays. Rain only bothers me when it ruins something, but rolling out of bed at an early hour on Monday always gets me.

I don't like Mondays. I want to shoo-oo-oo-oo-oot the whole day down.
