I’ll sum up the content of today’s segment by stealing part of the lyrics from a very popular song heard often this time of year. “Haul out the holly, put up the tree before my spirit falls again, for we need a little Christmas right this very minute.”
You’re going to hear a lot this week about the WOBM Christmas Classic for two simple reasons. One being it’s an event run in part by this radio station and secondly because it’s my baby. Actually there is more to it than that but you get the picture.
When you have nothing to talk about you talk about the weather. Well there’s plenty to talk about but we’re still talking about the weather because it seemed like everyone was outside this weekend. The boardwalks looked more like May than December and we spent Saturday in New Hope and Lambertville along with a visit to Peddler’s Village as we straddled the border between New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
We are two weeks away from Christmas and the one thing most of us agree on is that it just doesn’t feel like Christmas. The weather is more suited for shorts than scarves and most days all you need is a light jacket to walk around.
Holiday shopping can be stressful and probably more so for men because we tend to procrastinate. I fondly recall many a year when I was running through the mall on Christmas Eve day grabbing things and hoping they fit and made sense. It was kind of like hitting a baseball. Sometimes it ended up being a home run but clearly there were some strike outs.
While most of the attention at Monday’s annual meeting of the NJSIAA was focused on controversial proposals that were voted on there were other items on the agenda at the Pines Manor in Edison. One of the highlights of the luncheon was the honoring of this year’s sports awards recipients from across the state with 7 coaches from the shore saluted.
Saturday was quite a day for Shore Conference Football as for the second year six of the 23 state sectional champions come from Ocean and Monmouth County with Jackson Memorial, Shore Regional and Rumson-Fair Haven repeating as sectional champions.
