Baseball games – the Spring training variety – returned this weekend. Towards the end of next month we welcome Opening Day.  My twitter feed often includes activities involving Mets players.v Daily I receive various MLB updates about my team and others.  This included ranking of players by position and even a ranking for Fantasy baseball – 800 players in all. Some I agreed with; others I found curious. Often a lack of depth killed my team when injuries “erupted”. Friday’s blo...
Already two prior blogs posted about tonight’s main event. I find it a travesty that I need to refer to it as an eve game. The game really belong to late afternoon. The current scheduling often means gatherings break down after half-time, especially those who might need to travel a bit to get home; and with tomorrow remaining a work day, no reason to expect many to hang late on a Sunday eve. Sometimes, we join friends to watch; the hanging certainly outdoes watching the game ...

The stupid but often true cliché, “The more things change, the more things remain the same.”, carries some resonance this week. I fashion myself a strategist. It certainly involves messaging. So what occurred with Major League Baseball last week really bugged me. I lack the pertinent information to make an informed judgment but it remains clear that things went awry – again – for my baseball team. The excitement about the new manager -- #15 – evolved to anger about a failure ...

Two Sunday blogs ago I opted to focus on three reasons to consider still watching a then failing Mets team. I asked if my team might get hot. It did! It is.  Who'd thunk it?   Through last night 15 Ws out of 16 games, including two comeback wins against the Nationals this weekend.   As mentioned in that previous blow we took in the game Wednesday: Another series sweep.   We attend again this afternoon.   I purchased those tickets last Saturday. deGrom pitches.   1/2 game out ...

The Baseball season appears not to be going the way I’d prefer. Many friends probably agree, if they root for the team based in Queens.   Still, many things remain to root for. One player, Jeff McNeil, pursues a batting title. Peter Alonso won the Home Run contest, shattered several Mets records for rookies (Homers, RBIs XBHs) and remains much in play for leading MLB in home runs. Thursday, I watched Jacob deGrom pitch seven shutout innings. I even "discovered" Gotham Plaza o...

Two blogs I ago I covered supporting causes. I mentioned several upcoming events and one that we enjoyed last night. It was BINGO fundraiser, but of another kind:Radio BINGO. We enjoyed it; believed all who attended did.   The net proceeds supported the Pythian Diabetes Research Association (My good friend Craig Shink serves as its president.). Instead of numbers and letters, a DJ played song snippets.   All attendees had cards with 25 squares set in 5 columns and five rows ...

When I wrote my then regular The Public Ought to Know column (on which my book of the same name), I routinely scoped out topics I planned to cover. Sometimes, current events or experiences changed the order or pushed back or supplanted topics; indeed sometimes entire columns as drafted faced delay or re-write, or both. My approach to this regular Gotham Sunday blog sometimes follow a similar vein; what I planned to write about a week or several days ahead easily changed when ...

Today represents for many one of those much watch TV days. Some for the pomp and circumstances. Others for the commercials. A few for the gala at half-time. And most for the main event, the Superbowl. I’ll watch. At time of this drafting, not exactly sure where (I can post in the comments for any who really ought to know.). My interest since my team seems to achieve excellence in avoiding participation for 50 years involves some charitable fundraising around the game.   My f...

As I started day seven of the just ended week, it was solely about the number of decades – seven– someone just surpassed.   (At one point this morning I thought it might also be the number of full court games my team won; it just turned out to be the number of games my friend Shawn and I played (We did take five of seven; we hit foul shots to get into game six, won it and almost took game seven.).)   But this is really about a friend named Leonard – we fondly call him Lenny –...
A year ago I discussed two gatherings. This time just one. It represented almost that cross-pollination effect that Fridays blogger likes to note at meetings or other things Gotham. Most times I enjoy a morning full court “game.” This week no court experience but the 4th Annual Gotham Picnic and Softball game.  Keeping with tradition, we used my caterer, Saidy’s Cafe.  One of my basketball players joined in this year. Fred (Klein) batted him lead-off on our team.  He also vou...
