“Sorry if you do not like puppies. Actually, no … I am not.” — @jwerthsbearD graced Twitter with arguably the greatest meme of the season: #NatsPlayersAsPuppies.

— Reuben Fischer-Baum and Dennis Mersereau at thevane.gawker.com sum up research from ForecastAdvisor, which compared the accuracy of popular weather prediction services, including the National Weather Service, Accuweather and Customweather. The Weather Channel was accurate more often in more cities than any of its competitors.
