Are You Sure It's Not Winter?

Ok, we admit it, we're going to complain in this week's blog post.  Between the winter wonderland outside and the fact that half of our staff has been out sick with colds recently, it feels like we blew past fall pretty quickly; and we haven't even filmed the annual Greenfield High School vs. Turners Falls High School Thanksgiving Football Game yet.

Though "Turkey Day" is early this year, and winter doesn't officially begin until December 21st, the forecast for next Thursday is predicting a high temperature of 35 degrees.  Unfortunately, the overnight low on Wednesday is supposed to be 17 and our staff will be arriving at the high school between 8AM and 9AM on the 22nd, well before the temperature has a chance to rise very much.  On the upside, right now it's expected to be mostly sunny.  Also, knowing our executive director, he's probably planning to provide hot chocolate for our staff and volunteers.

Between our staff, crew, and various helpers, we'll probably have about 10 people on and around the field for the big game.  We need to finalize all kinds of details at our staff meeting on Monday but we can reveal that The Dukes of Sports are hopeful that they'll be able to do their traditional pre-game show, even though work commitments have forced the guys' regular program to be on hiatus since the spring.

Make sure to tune in to Cable Channel 15 at 6:30PM on Thursday night to catch all of the action and, for those of you who celebrate it, have a happy Thanksgiving!
