My son’s class is on a school trip to Philadelphia today. Cialis women When the trip was formulated the school principal called the house to see if my wife would come on the trip as a chaperone. Cialis women When she said she wasn’t sure if she would be free for the day I called out “Tell him I’ll go”, cialis women it seems the he knows of my Mets fanaticism and said “NO WAY DO WE WANT YOUR HUSBAND WITH US IN PHILLY” The same thing happen just this past weekend. Cialis women My wife and her sister thought it would be fun for all of us to go away for the Thanksgiving weekend. Cialis women Sounded good to me and I thought Lancaster PA would be great as we love the Willow Valley resort and we could do some Christmas shopping while the kids go to the pool and get involved in the other activities at the resort. Cialis women My wife, cialis women sister in law and brother in law all looked at each other and said “Maybe we would do better going upstate” Okay I’ll go along with that. Cialis women Then friends of ours from Harrisburg called and I said “hey maybe with the kids on Christmas vacation we will come up and visit you guys”  the response on the other end of the phone was “Uhhhhh Steve you know what, cialis women we’re coming down to Brooklyn so how about we come over to your place”? Sure any time you know that you guys are always welcome” Now I admit I’m not always the sharpest tool in the shed but after I got off the phone I confronted my wife “Why the hell won’t anyone let me go to Pennsylvania”?


All she said was “look in the mirror “. Cialis women I did and I saw a long sleeve Mets t-shirt, cialis women a Mets watch on my wrist and a Mets cap on my head. Cialis women My Mets socks soon to be joined by my Mets Reeboks and then my Mets jacket.  I then asked OK so what? She said look at what you’re wearing, cialis women all the Mets stuff. Cialis women  All you wear is Mets stuff you even have a Mets tie for the once in a blue moon time you have to wear one” Then she explained that everyone who is relative or close friend  knows that me and my wardrobe plus the Phillies world series win and Phillies fans is not a very good mix. Cialis women They also know that is it’s not Mets gear on me it would be Rangers or Giants apparel which would be a problem as well. Cialis women So I asked my dear wife “what will it take for us to go to Pennsylvania”? She said “well, cialis women you would have to start dressing like an adult and no Mets, cialis women Giants or Rangers shirts, cialis women hats or jackets” So I guess I won’t be visiting the Keystone state any time soon. Cialis women Just as well those Amish annoy the shit out of me anyway.


You know I was doing pretty good with this Citi Group contract that the Mets are reaping big benefits from, cialis women even though the thought of 50, cialis women000 workers being let go and the government is now an owner of the firm angers the shit out of me. Cialis women  My father worked for 46 years for Citi (back then it was known as First National City Bank) and my mother still reaps some nice benefits from his retirement package so I have a vested interest here. Cialis women But I still hate corporate names on stadiums and arenas because not only does it look like shit on the facility marquee, cialis women these deals never last and every two three the names are changed and no one is innocent. Cialis women But I ranted and raved but I was content that the ball park will be great and all the state of the art amenities will take the sting out of the $iti name on the façade. Cialis women The same way I talked myself into saying that losing my hair is great as I save money on hair gel. Cialis women But (always a but) my pal Jeffey had to go and open his big yap and now my balls are in an uproar all over again. Cialis women Here are some of the quotes that have me hooked up to a blood pressure machine:


{We’re proud to be partners with Citi, cialis women” Wilpon said. Cialis women “They’ve received some money to help them through tough times. Cialis women But if they do a good job of marketing, cialis women and we can help them bring eyeballs to help sell their brand, cialis women they’re going to come out of this and pay back the public.”}



What kind of positive marketing are we talking about? The managemennt of CitiGroup has run an institution that has been around over 100 years into the ground so how does naming rights solve incompetent management? How are the Mets going to “sell the brand”?  Are they going to up the money market interest rate for every game the Mets win?  If I open a checking account do I get a night in the Citi Corp suite? Do I show my Citi Group ATM card at the Shake Shack for a free burger? ‘Splain Jeffey “Splain.?


Then we have Eric Eve who must be a Skill Set relative as he also makes no sense when he speaks:


{ Eric Eve, cialis women Citigroup’s senior VP of global community relations, cialis women also addressed questions about how Citi can justify a $400 million naming-rights expenditure (over 20 years) while receiving $20 billion in taxpayer-funded bailout money. Cialis women


“This is a smart business decision, cialis women and it’s a smart business decision we made two years ago, cialis women” Eve said. Cialis women “From a marketing platform, cialis women these games will be seen by a global audience, cialis women so it’s still a smart business decision by Citi and we stand by that decision. Cialis women


“We recognize these are trying times for everyone. Cialis women But coming here today, cialis women I see people working. Cialis women I’m able to see all of the nonprofits that we’re going to be able to bring to this field and enjoy these games. Cialis women Yes, cialis women it’s smart business, cialis women but it’s also smart and important for us to build and strengthen community relationships.”}



THIS DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!!!!!! If this business decision is so smart then why is the U.S. Cialis women government bailing out the firm to the tune of $20 billion dollars? Who is the Citi Group CEO? Ralph Kramden?


Then we have this golden nugget from Jeffey-Poo:


 Wilpon stressed the idea that Citigroup needs to continue making money if it is to pay back its bailout money. Cialis women


{“They have to be able to keep doing business, cialis women” Wilpon said. Cialis women “To protect the taxpayers’ money, cialis women they have to be a going concern. Cialis women If they stop marketing, cialis women all of the other companies they’re competing against will zoom right past them, cialis women and they’ll never have a chance to catch up again.” }


Hummmmmmm Jeffey, cialis women they already got “ZOOMED” that’s why we the taxpayers are bailing them out? YESSSSSSSH!
