Welcome to October. What a time to be a New Englander. The Pats are undefeated going into Monday Night Football tonight against the Bengals, the Red Sox celebration at City Hall this afternoon for winning the AL East for the first time in 12 years is going to go off without a hitch and the playoffs start on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. All the while, summer weather is surging back into SNE with temperatures getting back up into the 70's and 80's all the while. We return to beautiful weather tomorrow, an off day for Boston sports enthusiasts. Highs will get into the mid 70's in inland locations, while the coast will stay in the 60's on both Tuesday and Wednesday, with an increase in clouds on Wednesday with spotty drizzle from a NE wind. Gametime temperatures will likely be in the 60's under overcast skies, maybe brightening later in the afternoon. Then we are back to summer and highs in the low 80's on Thursday under mostly sunny skies. The abnormally warm conditions will continue through the end of the week and into the weekend. Can it get any better? Knowing that we are in October, I will be watching for the other shoe to drop soon, we will be paying for this 2 month stretch of near perfect southern California weather, I just know it.
I almost forgot, the Boston College Eagles are ranked #7 in the BCS polls this week! They are finally getting some recognition. Go Eagles, Pats, and Sox.
