Golf courses welcome players as winter weather temps remain mild
Hey Folks!! Looking out the window trying to figure out what a "typical" winter day in New England is this year. Typical or average is certainly outside the norm lately. For instance, Friday last week was 8 degrees with snowstorms or otherwise, typical. Today is 50 degrees with light rain. Definitely not typical.
Some area golf courses had very strong play during the month of December and into the first couple of weeks of January, hopefully this can only help their bottom line. I will be curious to see how the turf responds to the freeze/thaw/snow/freeze typical weather we are experiencing.
Looking forward to the Patriots vs. Giants Super Bowl match-up
Speaking of "typical", the AFC Champion New England Patriots have advanced to another Super Bowl event. Once again, the much maligned New England Patriots have improved slowly each week and have advanced to the Championship event. The Patriots advance to the Pantheon of football greatness with a statistically inferior defense. This defensive unit gives up more yards than any other team in the league, but make the typical other-worldly plays to win the game. In the end, it’s all about pulling together to WIN. This version of the Patriots cherish the opportunity to match up against the Giants in a 2007 rematch. Should be a great game!!
