There was a definite warming trend today: the temperature at 7 a.m. soared to minus-7 degrees. The Patriots had a great victory last night. Having been through this two years ago, football fever will certainly dominate discussion at the registry of deeds during the coming week. When one of the local professional sports teams starts closing in on a championship, a very pleasant aura descends on the region, giving almost everyone a common topic of conversation which is lacking during the rest of the year (unless there's a big storm or a terrible tragedy). But all New Englanders will feel severely disrespected this week, as the national media fawns over Peyton Manning and the explosive offense of the Indianapolis Colts, especially after their big victory against the Kansas City Chiefs today.
