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...
On or after or sometimes before this day – always a Saturday eve, my (fraternal) lodge would hold a “sweethearts dance” and for the last couple of years it did not happen and a several couple got together on our own; this year the pandemic offered an easy excuse. Hopefully, next year will see its return. In the meantime on the first time Valentine’s Day fall on the same day I blog I share my Songs of Love playlist.   Each link works and I even added two songs to the list, 65...
On the eve on Superbowl LV, I think how different watching the game will be. It’ll likely be more of solo affair unless Shelly and I dine watching the beginning of the game (well we already ordered our meals yesterday so C’est possible at this writing). As shared on the eve of prior games, we join up with friends, sometimes in a diner in Brooklyn; otherwise among friends here in northeast Queens. If gatherings made sense, this would be first time in a long time that school th...

This involves nothing political or otherwise.   Perhaps early but still excited because I know this show will go on. I miss live concerts. Followers of this weekly commentary know well this commentator’s enjoyment of live shows. So last Wednesday, I looked forward to a planning meeting for the return of the Gotham Battle of the Bands® this year. Covid19 canceled the May 3, 2020 event. This year, Gotham Entertainment Chair Norm Spizz and producer of this musical extravaganza ...
New State of Our Union (a musical playlist)   Inspired by the change in our nation's leadership, I had tweeted on Inauguration Day (1/20/21), links to "What A Day" by Poco (It starts, "It's a good mornin' and I'm feelin' fine. Smile. I never thought I could be this way. I wanna play. Oh what a day!”) and Al Kooper's Brand New Day (“Last night I had a dream that the world was changing by leaps and bounds. It started up in the bigger cities and spread to the smaller towns.). S...
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 time of the new year or at the end of the prior year I traditionally post my commentary on the top ten concerts of the year just ended. The recent post to my website covered a handful of shows. COVID19 raising its ugly head (ALWAYS) played the culprit.   I really enjoyed what I got to attend.   The last show before COVID was truly amazing. I ran into several Gothamites (Jason Greenberg, Steve Lichtenstein and Bernie Dolington) at that special Allman Brothers Band 50th A...

Annually, I offer a rather short blog with a concerted purpose: a musical start to welcome the new year.  We reached that moment with the most popular of the playlists I post on YouTube and Apple Music: Song To Ring in the New Year.  Please do enjoy and share it.   As I explained in prior years, this curated list reflects more my musical taste in comparison to the holiday songs setlist which “accept” selections proposed by others; that helps explain that lengthy playlist.   S...
