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...
I was advised we needed to do something outside today. I suggested seeing “Thor” pitch in a rehab assignment in Coney Island. She agreed. The team we all hope he rejoins soon frustrates me. I am sure all the players are trying their best but the record suggests a limit to their collective abilities and it remains a source of frustration. No plans to change teams; just hoping tinkering a bit can lead to improvement. I find no merit trading off the pitchers who smart GMs can bu...

The evening before involved a rather large outing of sorts.   Some 265 or so of friends, colleagues, their family, friends, colleagues and clients. Attending either through Gotham City Networking,Inc.® or Kings FDR Tolerance Foundation of FDR Lodge 613, Knights of Pythias.   Citifield. Mets v. Yankees. Five home runs.   Fireworks during the game and after.   Some left happy because of one outcome (which disappointed others). (If only this score above held but it was nice wh...

I grew up loving football. Playing it. Organizing teams. Tackle. Touch. Flag. It did not matter. Strategizing (I'd argue none better!).   And today we all – at least the ratings say so – gather to watch the big one. The Super Bowl.   I recall watching my beloved Jets from a living room chair maybe four feet away from the set watching the greatest ever Super Bowl (At least it remains such for me.). I can only hope they return there in my lifetime; there’s a radio host...
I had to cut short my weekend basketball (not easy when you shoot 75%) for baseball (well, sort of). I accepted an invite to visit Citifield – home of my beloved Mets with Shelly. Doors opened at 12:30 p.m. and hoops officially ends at noon but often runs a bistle over. Needless to say, we arrived a bit early. We met my brand new group sales liaison. Shelly then took and posted a photo of the “new Mets owner” on social media. Anyone who requested tickets I directed to Ju...

The week past I ran two different group outings on successive days to Citifield. Both teams on the field represented New York.   The first eve, we also raised some money for a Foundation I served as President for a two-year stint.   The second eve, for this networking group, I connected some folks who might benefit from the introduction.   I enjoyed both games, despite my team losing both games; a rarity for this ultra-competitive sports enthusiast.   Dining out last nigh...
