Happy Labor Day weekend boys and girls and what a weekend it is, Hurricane Earl flamed out like Mets free agent signing, College Football goes full bore today (the DVR is ready to record the beginning of the Brian Kelly era in South Bend ) and I watched thee Brooklyn Cyclones record their 50th WIN last night and are ready to start the NY-PENN League playoffs Tuesday against either Jamestown or Williamsport, and how nice would a NY-PENN Championship top off Wally Backman’ return to managing?
Allow me to too my own horn here for a moment as I am honored to have been named the President of the NY NL Chapter of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.
So you don’t think Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel are dead men walking? First Jeffey Skill Sets goes to Brooklyn, I doubt there are any Skill Sets family members living in Bensonhurst or Gravesend anymore, to see about <wink!> “some structural plans”<wink!> at MCU Park and it just so happens that Cyclones manager, Wally Backman was walking by and had a chat with the Boy Blunder. I guess Backman not only is a very good field general but also has expertise in sheetrock and brick laying as well. Then Deadspin post a story about a group of Mets fans on a JetBlue flight notice a flight attendant having to help some asshole, the kind of asshole we all hate, try to push his big ass luggage into the tiniest space in the overhead, when the idiot got up to push the luggage in the Mets fans all gasped when they saw the culprit was OMAR MINAYA!!! Oh the humiliation not that he was a inconsiderate boob stuffing his luggage in a compartment but he was flying JetBlue which has no first or business class, just great unwashed class. Of course Omar was heckled by a few passenger/Mets fans but he never heard them as he donned his headphones and watched Cartoon Network all the way to Chicago. Oh and where was Asst’ GM John Ricco? Eh, eh, eh, Mr. Ricco was enjoying flying on Air Skill Sets with Jeff-er-oo while sipping drinks with paper parasols in them entertaining him with his plan to rid the Mets of excess baggage like Omar and Jerry.
