The World Series... It's So Hot Right Now!

Paraphrasing the immortal words of Will Ferrell’s character from Zoolander, Mugatu, the baseball World Series is “so hot right now.” Not only have the two teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros, faced stiff competition and jumped every hurdle to be at the championship, but it will literally be really hot. L.A. is facing a heat wave, and it may break the MLB’s previous World Series temperature record of 94 degrees (when it was held in Phoenix in 2001). It’s predicted that, at the start of game one tonight, it may be 99-degrees.

Hopefully the high temps won’t bother these athletes, and may the best team win. But, as I am from Los Angeles, that team will be the Dodgers (go blue!).
