Rain delays are good for retailers, bad for everyone else

Kei Igawa, the Yankees 2008 Opening Day starter
2 games, 3 hits, 3 doubles for Nick Johnson

While it never really rained for about three and a half hours this afternoon and Yankee fans were grumbling that the game could have gone on, one group of people enjoyed the delay. As The Times’ City Room blog notes, rain delays are great news for the vendors. As David Greco, the owner of an Italian deli at the Stadium, said,”They’re coming back tomorrow night, so we got a bonus day.” The parking lot attendants are just as thrilled.

    The vendors raked in the money yesterday selling tons of stuff in the concourses to people. It really sucks that they could’ve played the game. It never even downpoured from 2pm on.
