ALCS Game 6 Or A Rainout?? LIVE NYC Radar Right Here

The California LA Angels will do battle tonight, weather permitting, shortly after 8pm EDT at the new Yankee Stadium. Slated to pitch are Andy Pettitte (14-8) for the pinstripers and Joe Saunders (16-8) for the Halos. Right now in north central Connecticut, there is an intermittent on and off rain. A warm front that has already reached New York City, where the temperatures at 6am are hovering around sixty degrees, will pass through here early this afternoon, driving our temperatures now in the low forties up to sixty to sixty five degrees. But then a strong cold front will drop those temperatures and be accompanied by heavy rain, wind and possible thunder. In a nutshell, it'll be a very stormy night. Depending on the time of the cold front's passage, the game might be postponed or delayed. The only way to tell would be to monitor a radar screen of the Big Apple. You're covered...just click on the title of this post to see the latest live enhanced-view radar screen from Mt. Holly, New Jersey. It might take a few seconds to load but it will give you a birds-eye view of what kind of precipitation is going through the city and any more future rain heading easterly from the city's west. Just click on that title and see for yourself. Ta-da!

The Yankee starter, Andy Pettitte, the Yankee career leader in post season victories, had this to say about the confidence of his team, the future World Series opponents (I'm fairly certain) of the Philadelphia Phillies. My thanks for the quote go out to the NY Daily News. Thanks, guys...

"I don't think anybody feels like we're pinned up against a wall right now," said Andy Pettitte, who will make his 38th career postseason start at the Stadium tonight. "We're back home, we love playing here, and I think everyone is extremely comfortable and confident with where this club is. I can't say it enough, they're a good team. This was not going to be an easy series."

So we go to a game six while the Phillies watch intently. A huge part of me knows they'd rather play the Angels rather than the Yankees but I don't think it will happen that way. But it'll be fun watching, won't it?

Enjoy your Saturday and tune in to Fox and Fox HD at 8pm EDT for what promises to be an entertaining game. Don't forget to click on this post's title before gametime to see what kind of weather is in store for the Big Apple as gametime approaches and as always, BE WELL. Thanks. See you soon.
