today world seriesOn “Today” this morning, Al Roker forecast less-than-lovely weather — cloudy with a chance of rain — for the “first pitch of the World Series tonight.” One problem: the first pitch of the World Series is tomorrow night.

Roker: First pitch of the World Series tonight. Who do you like?

Matt Lauer: I like both teams.

Roker: Mr. Lauer, running for office. We appreciate it. Game’s going to be in Fenway Park. First pitch, cloudy skies, 40% shot at showers. 30% by the end of the game, and a temperature of 44 degrees.

Roker corrected himself after the local weather break just seconds later: “I was actually jumping ahead in time. It’s tomorrow night, first game of the World Series.”
