They’re used to dealing with rain in Seattle.

Lightning, on the other hand, has sent the 49ers and Seahawks to the locker room, with the game still scoreless in the first quarter.

The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore just told NBC’s Al Michaels that the delay could be 25 to 30 minutes.

With weather lightning delaying the opener at Denver, and holding up the Saints and Buccaneers for an hour today, it makes you wonder what kind of luck the NFL is going to have with a New York Super Bowl.
