I did not expect to follow last week’s blog welcoming the return of Mets baseball tomorrow. A Newsday article yesterday, a discussion at the Gotham Brad Scherer Happy Hour Friday eve and an email exchange with Mr. Title is Vital attorney and fellow tribal member Roy Fenichel induced today’s commentary; Roy even took the exchange to twitter after I shared my preferred Mets lineup. This column blossomed after I shared to Gotham Sportstalk listserve a nice article (to which Roy ...
Last year at this time I blogged with great optimism how things looked up for my baseball team.  The season that followed failed to meet my expectations, especially on the pitching side.  Lost Thor before the season started and Stroman opted out.  Pitching depth never overcame such a deep loss; it reverberated on the bullpen as usually happens.  Nonetheless despite no signings of the top free agents at fielding positions 1, 2 and 8, the experts find gear merit in the first ro...
A year ago I found myself blogging about how “my” baseball team messed up things, some not its fault, some self-induced with the selection of a new manager. Perhaps fitting under the prior never ready for prime time owners. Things changed this off-season, perhaps not soon enough, but certainly in satisfying ways for most, if not all, fans of my team which (obvious to most readers) plays at Citifield.   This year some signings – a well-regarded catcher and a talented relief pi...

I often look back at what I drafted the previous year before I compose the instant blog.  Peaking at that 2020 commentary really focused on the contrast in how we live today, still under a Pandemic but hopefully vaccinated, or on the verge of receiving this protective measure.  Last year – joined by a few friends – I watched a playoff game albeit not featuring my still failing team (at least they rid it of the coach who ought never have been given the reins to that team wrong...
This blog concerns some “wonders” of Gotham. I planned another topic. I committed myself to another topic. Somehow Friday’s blogger On Dec 11, 2020, at 4:39 PM, Fred Klein wrote: Great blog subject convinced me to share this account.  Sometime around 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, as I am leaving my car, I hear WFAN Craig Carton telling Evan Roberts to stop by a Philly Pretzel Factory store Saturday after a “Drive-By giveaway for New York Mets Season Ticket holders at Citifield....

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...

The week just past I got to enjoy my outside office a bit more. Interestingly an important component failed midweek. My external monitor just went kaput. Fortunately, I had a temporary backup at hand. The week before Marisa asked me if I had an extra external monitor. I did but not on site. I was able to retrieve it before last weekend; I kept it deployed elsewhere (the photo upper left suggests it location) for when set up shop at client’s office nearby. It turned out the ne...
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...

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...
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...
