Sports in Northeast Weather
We love our sports all over the country, but most of us who live in the colder-weather regions of the country have memories of stinging hands and chapped skin from playing baseball in weather that was much more made for December football games, when at least you were more ready for temperatures in the high 30's and the stiff winds that accompanied them.
So, here's a tip of the proverbial softball visor to my middle-school-aged daughter, who scrimmaged in this godawful weather on Friday afternoon and had a 1 hour and 45 minute practice for a local team yesterday afternoon. And, also, a tip of the lacrosse helmet to my elementary school-aged son, who will be playing a lacrosse game in weather more geared for the Eagles-Giants at the Meadowlands in December than a local contest in late March.
So much for the arrival of spring -- it's cold out there for everyone, and thanks to Under Armor and youthful endurance, the kids are doing just fine out there, everyone's kids, that is.
