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...
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 w...

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...
