Tulsa, OK 74120

Left Dallas at 8am on a nice clear morning, arriving in Tulsa at noon, under blue skies and a very hot 94 degrees. Having spent the day doing the touristy things it was time to head for match. Parked near the stadium at around 6.45pm and joined other groups heading for the game. Was absolutely amazed when someone coming away from the stadium said the game had been postponed. Well, the weather had dramatically altered by now……..it was only 91 degrees ! Apparently, the game was off due to waterlogging, caused by heavy rain in Tulsa on Friday. There had been no mention whatsoever on their website concerning this and let’s face it, just how wet could a pitch be having been baked all day long by the sun in temperatures of 90 degrees plus ? Obviously this is a club who are bottom of the table in both league position and the way they treat potential customers. Still, at least it was only a 500 mile round trip.
