    Figures that the multimillionaire players scurry while the minimum-wage ground crew has to go out and put down a tarp.

    I will admit to loving thunderstorms now (I used to be utterly terrified of them...then spent some time in Illinois).

    I promise you, though, that I would have dropped to my knees as well, covering my head, and then run off the field too, if that happened to me.

    I will say that the vid is terribly funny...and even people in the stands were throwing their arms over their heads and ducking down; it was a very loud, very close lightning strike (the lightning happens a nanosecond before the boom...you can see it if you're looking close and run the vid a time or two for the timing of it all) and deafening thunder crash.

    Yeah, I'd be running too.

    Best-
    Herding Cats
