Baseball is back this weekend. For real.  The Mets hosted the Yankees in a summer exhibition game.  Last night's outcome confused. It included players I do not expect nor want to play when the games count but it was nice to experience it via the telly. There’s more tonight. Did you check it out last night?   Do you plan to watch it tonight? It also makes me excited to think about those same teams playing against each other for real on September 11, 2021, when Gotham and my...
This time of year, I usually look to gather lists of summer concerts, many free, to recommend. Not this year. Often, the discussions about music involve what great show got canceled, postponed or rescheduled. Not sure how many texts and emails I’ve exchanged with my friend Jason about changes involving shows planned at Jones Beach this year. We’ve talked about things such as drive-in concerts – not something either one of us consider an acceptable option; a drive-in movie inv...
President’s weekend honors our first and 16th Presidents. Why not honor them by extolling public and community service? Many we know toil in government gigs at all levels. Next time your see them or speak to them (or email or message them), just thank them. Many of them and many of you also perform some community service. Describe something better than doing giving back in that way. It makes a difference. It makes the community better. It makes life better. It makes the world...
When I think about the approach of Thanksgiving, I think about more than giving thanks for my family, friends, colleagues and my life. More and more the focus involves giving. I only hope I do enough. The Tuesday that follows Thanksgiving – Giving Tuesday – represents a culmination of giving efforts through Gotham. As Friday’s blogger repeatedly reminds us on Fredslist and various Gotham groups he attends, Gotham’s Holiday Party that eve features the selection of charities th...
I do not recall feeling like this last fall. Perhaps because I had most of the summer 2018 to ease into things. All I know is some sort of void exists. My team plays no longer. The only recent event involved a firing of the manager. On the other hand Friday's blogger’s team still plays. I find I really miss watching my team and attending the games.   While I plan to be there Opening Day 2020 and already took 145 RSVPs between Gotham City Networking and my FDR Lodge 613 Knight...
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...

Vacations involve a bit of work no matter where we go. As I wrote about and retain an interest in siting sports stadiums (stadia?) I always try to include one on a visit. Since I enjoy clients involved in transit and transportation issues, I check out the issues wherever we visit. I also take advantage of opportunities to gain perspectives on current issues. This spring recess centered around a visit to our daughter who lives in Los Angeles. Instead on centering our visit...
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...
