How to stay occupied during a rain delay

Back in May, UConn and USF were in the midst of a five hour rain delay during their 2009 Big League East Baseball tournament. Sometimes a rain delay can be a blessing in disguise, as the members of both teams display below.
As much as this rain delay wasn’t planned, I have a feeling that some of these dance routines were. Kudos to these guys for finding a way to stay occupies and entertain the few fans that actually stuck around during the delay.

Just in case you were wondering, Conneticut would eventually go on to win 4-2 over USF, but more importantly they won the dance battle. As a token of their mad dance skills, the members of the UConn dance baseball team will receive a autographed copy of “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo”.

    I LAUGHED SO HARD I CRIED. That is funny stuff. That would be more than worth the price of admission and getting soaked.

    I can't decide on my favourite number – I think the Michael Jackson one was the best. When all the guys fell down, that was classic. It's good to know that these guys have a Plan B in case the whole baseball thing doesn't work out.

    eyeB, that clip is classic. They should have done the Carlton dance to some Tom Jones!
