Hope they get this in today, but a lot of rain in the area

Just got our first shower here at my house, a few miles south of campus. Just enough to get the concrete wet, then stopped.

Radar shows a dry spot lining up with central Houston, maybe we’ll get lucky (although I need the rain).

I was at the softball game last Friday and alming by the track with the event going on I noticed the three canopy tents up on the grandstand for the tracl complex as a press box. That looks so bush league and third rate. How does a major athletic program with the pedigree in track not even have a press box in their facility? I wouldnt think it would cost that much to install a real press box on top of the bleachers. The facility also needs its own concession and restroom facilities for fans. UH is probably missing out on hosting alot more college and amatuer track events because of these missing facilities in the track complex.
