Human curling and 'Mayweather-Pacquiao': The new greatest rain delay in baseball history

Back in ye olde times, baseball rain delays just meant soggy hot dogs and fill-in broadcasts of Abbott & Costello footage. But it's 2015, and epic baseball rain delays are the new viral proposal videos.

Over the course of the past few weeks, we've seen groundskeepers breaking it down, teams playing Rock-Paper-Scissors on Twitter and the dance-off to end all dance-offs down at the college level.

However, they all fall short of the 14-act epic rain delay choreographed by Fresno State and the University of New Mexico during Game 9 of the Mountain West NCAA tournament over Memorial Day Weekend. The Bulldogs and Lobos pooled their talent to stage a Civil War re-enactment, play human curling, go shark fishing and recreate the excitement/glorified hugging that made the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight so special:

The running of the bulls was also pretty great, and -- somehow -- it's still fun to laugh about the Seahawks throwing an interception on the doorstep to lose the Super Bowl.
