Not sure what excuse to use, but it appears the graduate students have won again. Was it because of the wet dreary rain?

Thanks for coming out and welcoming our new students and breaking Dr. Tom Meek in his first (and possibly his last) softball game. It was fun to watch everyone slip and slide in the drizzling rain!
