A sea of Bulldogs fans, all dressed in orange, ran for their cars amid pouring rain upon hearing that the long-awaited ribbon-cutting ceremony has been canceled.
Initially, lightning caused a 30-minute delay but as it continued and the sky grew darker, the event was canceled.
At this time officials are saying the game will be played at 4 p. m. Friday and the ceremony will be postponed. In light of tomorrow's holiday, some fans said it would be inappropriate to hold the game tomorrow.
Check back with Patch later this evening for additional details.
