With Time Warner and Comcast reaching in to their deep pockets to help out their SNY partner the Skill Sets , it has all the earmarks of the old 3 Card Monte games you used to see around the ol’ Forty-Duce back in the day. Instead of having a kid yell out “5-0!! 5-0!!” to warn that the cops were in route, I picture Jeffey standing on the corner playing chickey yelling “PICARD!! PICARD!!
I guess it makes sense for TW and Comcast to help bailout the Skill Sets as the Mets are the main TV programing on SNY, speaking of SNY do you watch any of their programing other than the Mets or any Mets related programing? I didn’t think so. I’m waiting for them to broadcast Classic Giuseppe Franco commercials. Wouldn’t that be the kicker if old Joey ended up buying a share of the Mets?
The Kid toughed it out last night as he headed out to see his Palm Beach Atlantic University baseball team open it’s season. A very bittersweet night is was as Carter hasn’t made any public appearances since his fight with cancer and with the tumors retuning who knows if he ever will again. If you were shocked by the Carter’s appearance then I guess you have never had a friend or family member stricken with this insidious disease. Consider yourself fortunate.
Sunday is shaping up to be one of the great sports viewing days in a long, long time. Start off the morning with Chelsea-ManU at Stamford Bridge at 10AM; follow that up with Grizzles-Celtics at Noon with a switch over to Rangers-Flyers at 1PM then a little break and head over for a Super Bowl party with some friends-A Giants fans only party I might add-for Giants-Patriots. Good thing I’ve been training for years for this kind of endurance test.
