An extreme situation in the Northeast

After living in Maine year round for eight years, I’ve learned the weather is one issue that always comes up.  It seems like no matter what, we’re never happy, but this latest blanket of heat is a shocker.  The Sea Dogs are taking on the New Hampshire Fisher Cats this weekend, and temps are expected near 100 on Friday.  Now, in the early parts of the season we worry about the cold.  Which is worse?  This will be something I’ll ask the players later today.  From talking to some of the them, they’re use to the heat, but this has been crazy.  For me, all I think about is the early part of the season, and that eases this heat.  I just hope the fans can get comfortable for the games this weekend.

Quick hits….

Portland picked up their second walk-off win of the season on Wednesday.  Mitch Dening blasted a one-out homer over the Portland bullpen.  The ‘Dogs first walk-off win came on a homer by Alex Hassan (June 29 vs. New Britain, also a day game).

The Sea Dogs are visiting New Hampshire and Binghamton for the final time this season.  Portland is 15-15 during a 37-game stretch against the Eastern Division.

Last night was the annual Lobster Bake at the Burke’s (team owners) place in Kennebunkport…It was my seventh, but I enjoy seeing the first-timers.  I thank them for their hospitality.

Will the NFL lockout end?  I want to do fantasy football again, and Ryan Khoury is the commissioner of my league.

Tommy Hottovy is a father, what a couple of a months for the former Sea Dog.
