A Snowball's Chance in Hartford, and a Blizzard WARNING Issued for NYC and Points North and East.

From today's Herald, this short blurb...."The Red Sox continue to decline comment on any and all matters regarding Roger Clemens, and the chance of the seven-time Cy Young Award winner returning to Boston still appear remote."
I would say that the chances are better for a sunny and warm day here tomorrow than the possibility of Rocket hurling anything, including his lunch, at Fenway Park, although it would be nice. Nice? Hell, it would be fantastic. But we do have a surplus of starters, and I still would be surprised if there is no further trade action before Spring Training. But the chances of that get slimmer and slimmer every day.
On the weather front on this Saturday mid-morning, the new computer info is in. It leads us to believe that there will be a higher amount of liquid precipitation than was expected earlier. This of course will increase the snow depth. The winds are a certainty, and even NYC has a blizzard warning that was just issued. Now, if you know me well, you know that I love snow, and the study of weather itself. So I am excited. Doesn't take much, does it?
And I did want to give a shout out to someone I've known but never met in person. That would be Faithy. She's from the grand old city of Baltimore, and her thoughtful comments are appreciated. And I'm just happy she reads my stuff. Happy weekend everyone, and more storm bulletins will be issued by this roving reporter. Roving between the living room and the kitchen just about encompasses my travels this weekend. All the food shopping and beer purchases have been done. Now I'll just sit back and let it all be.
Oh, I thought the Opening ceremony for Olympics 2006 were great, with stunning HD visuals.Good job NBC.

Oh come on! Stop flirting with dissapointment. He's not coming-- he has a 10 times larger chance of coming to New York then to Boston and you dont see Yankee fans half as excited as Red Sox Fans. Pedro, Nomar, Manny, --how many other countless players have left Boston on bad terms-- including Clemens himself 10 years ago. Why in the world would he come back-- especially when he's promised to help out the Yankees and Astros as a coach after he retires. He has a very good relationship with The Boss, in fact George gave him a Hummer after he graduated as a Thank you from the Yankees. It's not happening, he woudlnt want to be in the media circle of New york city, or the even more crazy atmosphere of Boston. He'll go back to the Astro's, and continue to sit at home during road games, and games where he doesn't pitch. What more can you want ?? Get paid millions of dollars and skip 4 games your not scheduled to pitch. You think that idea will float in Boston and New York? Not with the Boss.

I soo glad the Boss has nothing to do with the running of the Sox. His distorted trades 2 years ago, nonsensical in nature, were laughable. It's time for him to realize he's an old man who should not be making the decisions on talent. He seems to realize this now more so than 2 years ago.

Well We got the snow here (in Baltimore) a foot of it.

First snow since around thanksgiving, so I'm not complaining.

But it does make it hard to think Baseball

Hiya Faithy. Wow, what a storm, as you know if you read my first post of this Sunday. When there is no baseball to write about, there is this unbelievably heavy snowfall to bring on the words to my brain, sort of like the brain that wouldn't die, or shut itself off! Thanks for reading and commenting, and you too Evil.
