Morning Skate: Outside

FRIDAY! You did it. Unless you work weekends, in which case...keep up the good work.

By now, you’re surely caught up on all of the outdoor news. I don’t think it happens, but it’s fun to talk about!

Frankly, the California teams talking about it are more interesting to me than the Bruins. Outdoor games in California in February could be a pretty big draw for the players...much more so than, say, an early February, 4-degree day in New England. Bundle up!

Other than that, we’re a week into December and we still have no plans for an NHL season. Hope hasn’t been lost, but things certainly are a bit dimmer than a few weeks ago.

What’s on tap for the weekend? We might have some wintry weather heading our way in Boston, or it might fizzle out entirely. Tends to be how it works around these parts.

Today’s highlight

All this talk about playing outside reminded me of this song, which, coincidentally, the Foo Fighters played outside at Fenway Park a few years ago.

This album wasn’t their best, but it did grow on me after the fact.

Today’s discussion topic

Please discuss the greatest holiday movie of all time, Jingle All the Way.
