The 2017 Major League Baseball season is upon us. And for the first time in 108 years, the Chicago Cubs will be defending a World Series title. And it's almost like it was over a 100 years ago, with those Cubbies being the favorites, and the Boston Red Sox not far behind.

Something that has become of a bit of a trend in recent years is rain delay tomfoolery. Here are some videos with lots of examples of it. Everything from a Civil War reenactment to Olympic curling to a soccer goal keep the players and us as viewers entertained while the rain comes down and stalls a game. Oh yeah, and even the Seahawks weren't immune to being made fun of, as there is a reenactment of the Malcolm Butler interception from Super Bowl 49.
