In 1967 the Boston Red Sox lived the ‘Impossible Dream’, going from last to first in one season. 40 years later, the Sox made a Possible Dream come true; fielding a solid team and winning the World Series. With many New England sports teams looking good this season, can they all make their "Possible Dreams" come true?

#2 Ranked BC Eagles Will Face Weather Again

Anyone who watched last Thursday's BC/Virginia Tech game saw that the fiercest opponent at Lane Stadium was the weather. The first quarter punt festival tested the QB skills of both Matt Ryan and Sean Glennon, as neither of them were able to get much of a grip on the ball. Glennon would shape up enough to help put 10 points on the board for Tech, but Matt Ryan's 2 minute drill miracle ensured a victory for BC.

This Saturday, BC will face the elements again. The remnants of Hurricane Noel will be passing through New England tomorrow night. In the Caribbean, Noel killed about 115 people. Thankfully, all he brings to the Northeast is 6 inches of rain (possibly turning to sleet, then snow), sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph, and gusts up to 60 mph. Ryan and company may also have to deal with game-time temperatures around 40 degrees, that may dip to as low as 30 before the game is finished. The Eagles are going to have to deal with even worse weather than last week if they want to defend their title hopes and #2 ranking.
