From our Late to the Pool Party desk
While the hardreading staff noted the degrees of difference in yesterday’s local coverage of the traditional Southie Polar Bear Plunge, we regrettably failed to note the swimsuit disparities between the two Boston dailies.
One town, two different whirls, eh?

As the hardreading staff has often noted, the local dailies have created One Town, Two Different Worlds more days than not.
But . . . One Town, Two Different Thermometers?
Boston Herald Page One:
Boston Globe Page One:
Not to get technical about it, but . . .
Right – it’s not just the air temperature they differed on, it was the water temp too.
Frosty local tabloid again:
Hundreds of L Street Brownies braved the bitter cold to take the traditional Southie Polar Bear Plunge on New Year’s Day.
“It was warmer in the water because the air temp was down to the teens with the wind chill,” said Freddy Ahern, coordinator for the BCYF Curley Community Center. The water was a balmy 37 degrees.
Happy New Year to all! Keep up the good work.
