The Chicago Cubs faced the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night in an important game — the Giants have solid playoff chances, the Cubs, not so much — but Mother Nature conspired against them.

The Cubs had prepared for the weather, with about a billion bags of Diamond Dry.

One fan went so far as to set the whole debacle to "Yackety Sax" in a video posted to YouTube Tuesday night.

The consolation for Chicago fans: The game was eventually called in the Cubs' favor.
