In other news, I just went for a run and it’s ridiculously cloudy here at my palatial estate – which looks sort of like this – in Connecticut. Forecast for tonight in the Bronx is only a 20 % chance of rain but cooler temps in the 50′s. Also, since I forgot to mention it before, feel free to email me this week – or anytime, really – at firstname.lastname@example.org. Back with more from the Stadium later on.
