Fans showed up to last Friday's Florida Atlantic-Western Kentucky game expecting to see a little collegiate baseball. What they got in addition was probably even better.
During a rain delay that lasted two hours and 13 minutes, players from both squads put on an array of comedy skits that included a mock roller coaster ride, a parody of the Shake Weight commercial and a "immigration bust." Though the last one is questionable at best, the rest of the routines and danceoffs created a superbly funny and uber-creative rain delay theater that was worthy of Rick Dempsey.
But all good things come to an end and FAU fans had to settle for watching a 10-3 win over No. 19 Western Kentucky once the rain stopped. For the FAU players' take on their routines — which they credited with a part in the upset — head on over to FAU Owl Access.
