2010 OVER AND OUT

As if there is not enough snow here on Staten Island, my family has decided it would be good idea to go upstate NY for New Years Eve and the weekend to snow board and ski, two activity’s I will not be involved in. So I don’t know how much access I’ll have to a wi-fi hot spot so I’d like to wish everyone you comes to this site a very Happy New Year and more importantly an healthy and safe New Year.

I’m so glad that when I turned on the news this morning, that Times Square is clear of snow and that the million or so people can now enjoy standing in a area blocked off by NYPD barricades for the next 12-14 hours to watch a ball drop from a building.  As a life long New Yorker it stuns the shit out of me that people come from all over the world to do this. Once your in those pens, you can’t leave even to go to the bathroom. If you have a real bathroom emergency you have to hope there is a sympathetic cop guarding your holding pen to let you out to find a bathroom.

If you can’t make it to Times Square, you can always stop off downtown at the NYPD’s central booking station by the courts and have the same experience as those revelers in Times Square.

  1. Happy New Year, Steve. From a baseball perspective, 2010 was not as bad as 2009. The Mets were competitive for half of the year, but most importantly, Omar Minaya is GONE! And before anyone tries to say he did some good (which is utterly ridiculous), the new organization rankings place the Mets minor league system at 20 of 30. So, enough on him, he’s gone, the future by that fact alone is brighter.

    Oh shit, you said you would punch anyone who wishes you Happy New Year in the nose! Do I get a pass as a long-time contributor to the EKS? LOL!

  2. To all my close and dear friends here I’d like to wish all of you the best for 2011.

    Your pal,

    Michael
