I AM NOT OF SOUND MIND OR BODY

I was all set to read a bunch of Mets stuff today and write a nice post on what I missed since I was gone for the week but to tell you the truth I’m exhausted.

We boarded our flight from Orlando at 7PM last night figuring we’d get into Newark by 9:30 or so and get home by 10:30-11:00, no bad at all. Well, that didn’t go as planned. We sat on the runway of Orlando Int’l Airport for an hour and fifteen minutes with screaming babies and the nastiest flight crew that JetBlue could find (gee, I’m sorry I asked for another bottle of water, but I’ve been sitting here for over hour, you Grand Pa Munster lookalike old fucking hag, so make it fucking tolerable will ya?) so by the time we landed in Newark and headed to the long term parking lot which I believe is right outside Atlantic City, it was about a quarter to one when we stepped into the house. By the time we get all situated and browsed a week’s worth mail and then caught up on some baseball highlights, it was 3AM when I collapsed in bed.

I did wake up in time to see ManU storm back from a 2 nil deficit to take the FA Community Shield (a kind of Mayor’s Trophy Game) from Manchester City , 3-2. The EPL gets under way next weekend as does NFL pre-season (this looks like a very long season for us fans of the New York Football Giants, the over/under on Bill Cowher to the Giants in 2012 stories is at  1,237 ) and baseball is headed toward the dog days of August, only to emerge into the September Pennant races and post season. It’s a great time to be a sports fan.

So now I need to shower and get dressed and head down to St. George to watch the Cyclones-Highlanders game which is a part of my Father’s Day gift (all games between the Cyclones and Highlanders) thankfully it’s a 4PM game so I can come home and get my mind ready to go back to work tomorrow. There is nothing worse than the first day of work after a vacation

    After reading some stories on these riots I hope the POTUS and the inept U.S. Congress is watching what’s going on in Britan because all this country needs is a spark to start the same type of behavior here
