"This Weekend Feels Like A 32 Year Old Movie"

There was a wonderful & sad movie, which was a story of a Pitcher & his dying Catcher, called "Bang The Drum Slowly", starring Michael Moriarty & Robert De Niro:

Both played for the fictitious team, the NY Mammoths;

Moriarty(An Emmy Award-Winner from "Law & Order") played that Pitcher, while De Niro(Mr Tribeca Film Festival Himself & Academy Award Winner for "Godfather Part 2") was the Catcher;

The Mammoths won all the marbles @ the end of the season, but the catcher died over that ensuing winter;

As I head to Fenway Park tomorrow morning, I feel like I'm headed to a live performance of this cinematic gem, with all of its' pathos;

Jon Lester, Rookie Dynamo Pitcher, was tested for Cancer, as he has enlarged lymph nodes;

Let's just pray that the enlarged nodes are as a result of a bad cold;
Get well, Jon; You have a great career ahead of you;

There's good news, in that Papi will be back, tomorrow night @ 7:05PM, for Game 3 of Red Sox-Toronto Blue Jays;

All of You, Be Well;

-Michael.

16 with a bullet..I remember my 16th birthday, back in the 40's. Just kidding. And YES, our Papi will be there for your viewing pleasure. And a sure bet for rain on Saturday is New York. Less sure, which is good for you, is Fenway. Most of the precip will be passing to the west of Hartford. But as always, with a storm moving from the south, the exact track, and the rain shield, are a little uncertain. Copyright "PeterNweather06". Stay tuned for winter weather updates, as needed starting in late December. Free.

You have expanded Peter:

My latest offering has been written, called "Ya Gotta Believe";

I believe that I'll have another 'Gansett.

"Bang The Drum Slowly" is absolutely one of the best and most underrated baseball movies of all time.

Good luck, especially with the rain, tomorrow, Michael.

No problem, Q:

Been checking NY & Boston Forecasts all day;

Boston looks ok, while NYC doesn't.
