I can’t believe I’m up late on a Friday night/early Saturday morning writing blog stuff, but I just had to bring to your attention the projected weather conditions for the NFL’s junket across the pond. The Rainout Blog World Headquarters reside in Virginia, but we’re pretty big in England. Anyway, the 0-7 Dolphins play the New York American Football Giants Sunday at London’s Wembley Stadium in what will be the first regular season game in the long history of the NFL to be played outside of North America. The game is listed on the schedule as a Dolphins home game, but the weather at Wembley will not remind anyone of Miami. Plus, and I’m assuming here, there will be no baseball diamond dirt in the middle of the pitch. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m., London time and the forecast calls for a 90 percent chance of light rain throughout the day and evening with low temperatures dipping to about 52 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus winds will be blowing up to 25 mph. The Giants play their home games in a stadium where winds swirl like crazy at times, so conditions in London may work to their advantage.
