By the time you're done raving about the Red Sox' Game 1 victory it'll be time to focus on Game 2, although something tells us the guys in the video above might extend the party right up until gametime.

Here's some details on tonight's game and a brief directory of some good content.

Game time: 8:07 p.m.

Weather: Cold again with some wind, but doesn't look like any rain in the forecast.

Live coverage today on Boston.com:
-- Boston Sports Live at noon features Chris Gasper and John Powers recapping Game 1 and looking ahead to Game 2 (with a little Patriots-Dolphins talk mixed in there).

-- Live Pregame Today from Fenway Park at 5 p.m.

-- Chad Finn hosts a pregame chat at 7 p.m.

-- Live in-game blog at 8 p.m. for updates and commentary. For the mobile version, click here.

Pregame/in-game details:
-- First pitch honors go to members of the 2004 Red Sox World Series team.

-- James Taylor will sing the national anthem before the game and America the Beautiful in the 7th inning.

-- There will be a tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings during the game.

Worthwhile links:
-- Peter Abraham has a complete report on Game 1 on BostonGlobe.com, where you can also find analysis in Nick Cafardo's On Baseball, columns by Christopher L. Gasper and Dan Shaughnessy, and plenty more from this morning's special section in the Globe.

-- St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bernie Miklasz says Game 1 was the Cardinals' "comedic tribute to the 2004 World Series, 10 years after," along with plenty of other jabs at the hapless performance by St. Louis in Game 1.

300pumpkins.jpg-- With the possibility of a Game 7 falling on Halloween, both the Red Sox and Cardinals have made pumpkin-carving templates available on their websites. Gotta love the beard design for the Sox. (Many other teams have these as well in the fan sections of their websites)

-- The Globe staff photographers created an excellent gallery of shots from Game 1.

-- Boston.com's Emily Wright has been sent ahead to scout out St. Louis and connect with Red Sox Nation there ahead of the series shifting there for Game 3 on Saturday. Here's her live blog about her experiences.

-- Last, colleagues at MLB Network shared the video below, a particularly compelling feature about the impact the Red Sox have had on Boston following the Boston Marathon bombings.
