We got to hang with some good friends last eve. It was fun to catch up. It was not in person but technology made it seem like we gathered at our place or one of their homes. Usually I see the men one or two times a week for basketball in a program my Knight of Pythias (FDR) lodge sponsors. There’s been no ball for a month and we have no clue when the game returns. We play in a school gym which mean no ball through April (maybe the end of June after the Governor and the May...
It’s a secret!   Not the event. It appears on a couple of calendars found on line – at the New York Grand Lodge Knights of Pythias website’s “Pythian Events” link and on the host FDR Lodge 613 website calendar.   But telling what happens remains a no go. All I can share about the event is I organized it so friends I play basketball with in Floral Park, Queens can fulfill their obligation to “take the ranks” as members in our Lodge that covers their twice weekly basketball.   ...
When March arrives I anticipate and look forward to Spring. I think more about Baseball with opening day at the end of the month of late. Some other things of note occur on the Sports side. March Madness means College Hoops and pools for many. Football Free Agency starts in less than two weeks on March 14 (the draft about six weeks later, April 25-27). Yet as a bit of snow yesterday demonstrated, it forecasts no real relief on the weather side. But for me still the small roun...

Something that you learn more by observation than doing. Spacing out certain hard – aka physical – work. I still enjoy tending to my yard. Do not mind the exercise; though alternative exercise activities such as basketball or swimming I certainly enjoy why “playing.” This weekend – due to the famed midwinter recess closing the gym (in my boyhood elementary school) that my Knights of Pythias lodge rents, if the weather permitted – it did – I knew yard work would occur.   Not ...

Like a good friend, I can enjoy a good swim. Unlike that friend, my swim facility only recently became “available” to me. My second time I visited it with Shelly. She makes other use of it (and maintained her affiliation for several years before I recently selected it) but I still swam, and evidently we already plan two more successive visits. In past years, I enjoyed the several month extended summer season at a pool club; through that membership I met friends who invited...
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...

Most here know I care deeply about a lot of things. That includes sports. I contribute frequently to the “Sportstalk” listserve provided here as a service by Gotham City Networking, Inc.®. While Gotham and Fred boast of its Bombers and Batmen softball teams, year-round my Pythian Lodge sponsors full-court basketball that I enjoy with some of the nicest bunch of men.   After we played today (meaning the day before this blog appears -- and let me boast I made the game endin...

I already played two hours of (basket)ball, enough of a workout for any day. I did not anticipate that hours later another workout loomed.   When I left early to drop off Shelly’s dad at a medical appointment before heading to the school to play, it snowed lightly. By the time a reached the school there was an inch covering the sidewalk. I was dressed to play, just needing to unzip my hoody (I brought jeans for after.) When we left we all needed to brush off our cars; I r...

So many topics to consider. One who probably knows best suggested I cover a fave topic – music – and the current president's taste. Driving to basketball (and after we played friends there thought I should blog on our 4 v 4 full court games) this morning Adam LaRoche dominated the sportstalk radio airwaves; and as well when we left the gym and I turned on the radio again. We may not know the whole truth but a player who had some success and mucho against my fave team, lef...
