Man U Gotta Love Soccer in the Rain

Turkish champion Besiktas is facing Manchester United Wednesday night in the Champion’s League group B match at Old Trafford. In the photo above, Besiktas players are seen practicing in the pouring rain. There’s only a 20 percent chance of rain when the two teams meet Wednesday night, but it will be cold. The wind chill is projected at 33 degrees. If you go to the game, send me a photo and I’ll post it on The Rainout Blog. The e-mail address is rainoutblog@gmail.com.

Word from the Booth

Hey, I know this sports-weather blog stuff is a fascinating, riveting read. However, if you really want something totally cool and interesting, check out Word from the Booth. It’s a new blog created by my pal in Tennessee – I thought the Jets would win the Super Bowl before this guy started blogging – and it offers compelling topics about stuff that you may have never heard of. For example, do you know about Thanksgiving maskers? Me neither, until I read Word from the Booth.
