Uh-oh. This weekend’s New York-Philadelphia showdown might be impacted by rain. According to Weather.com, there’s a 40 percent chance of rain for first pitch on Saturday. But no worries, Bill Conlin of the Philadelphia Daily News has some advice:
My take? Enjoy temperatures in the 70s tomorrow. At game time, a
humid breeze from the south gusting to 25 mph will be starching The
Bank flags. Dress for possible rain. Ditto The Linc’s hearty
tailgaters, who will party hearty on Sunday in anything from a Category
1 hurricane to a blue norther. They know the drill.
Game 4 fans – assuming Game 3 is played on schedule – should dress
for cooler temperatures as the cold front drags through the region,
ushering in seasonable Nov. 1 temperatures.
You know, Conlin might be better suited to predict the weather. God knows we can’t trust his player evaluations.
