The above was posted on Twitter by Travelers radio sidekick R.J. Hawk after severe weather once again hit Dickey-Stephens Park on Tuesday night.
For the safety of everyone at the stadium -- especially the fans who have to walk to their cars because there is nowhere to hide in an open concourse as well as the guys in the broadcast booth -- it is completely ridiculous that the game would continue up to the point that tornado sirens are going off.
Thanks to Arkansas' Weatherman Ed Buckner and the army of weather guys on the local stations, we know well in advance when a storm is on the way and can predict with a fair amount of certainty down to the minute at what point it will hit a certain part of town.
I guess tornado warnings are like steroids used to be to baseball -- the warnings don't apply until the damage is already done and something is then officially written into the rulebook.
