Auburn-Alabama game postponed due to “snow”

SNOW Day 2014

Alabama’s visit to Auburn for the hoops version of the Iron Bowl has been postponed from Wednesday evening to Thursday evening.

“After consulting with the Southeastern Conference it has been determined that the men’s basketball game between Auburn University and the University of Alabama has been postponed until Thursday due to wintery weather across the state of Alabama,” Auburn said in a statement released Tuesday night. “The safety of the participating teams, staff and fans was considered in postponing the game.”

The game will tip off 25 minutes after the Auburn women finish playing Texas A&M. That game will tip off at 5 p.m. Any tickets for Wednesday’s game will be good for Thursday’s game. Tickets to the men’s game will also get you admission into the women’s game.

The cause for the postponement?

A couple of inches of snow the south got last night.

    Don’t be a jerk. We’re not equipped from an infrastructure standpoint to handle this kind of weather. And there’s no sense in having the type of road equipment around for weather events that happen once every five or seven years.

    Better the game be postponed than having a bunch of people who don’t know how to drive on icy roads sliding around killing each other.

    So quit being a dope with your mocking quotes in the headline and save your snarky comments for something that legitimately deserves them.
