MAYOR BLOOMBERG WON’T BUY NY METS CITES TOO MANY IRISH PEOPLE IN FANBASE

 

Not for anything but as long as Mike Bloomberg has been Mayor of NYC, the town ran like Swiss clock. Crime dropped, tourism rose, snow was removed in a timely fashion and there was never much controversy, until he told the voters of NYC to shove their term limits referendum up their ass, ”I want to be King of NYC forever”

Unfortunately, like a  rotting fish or a visting relative who over stays his welcome, Bloomy is starting to stink. Whether it’s his appointment of Cathie Black as President of Board of Education, whose solution to over crowding in NYC public schools is to tell people to practice birth control and then at a meeting of parents of children who will be displaced by their school closing, ignores them as she falls into a Blackberry induced stupor. Of course there is his cluster fuck of snow removal, his annoyance with cops and firefighters who after pulling out bodies and trying to save lives on September 1tth 2001, have developed illnesses that have rendered them disabled and are collecting pensions. Pensions that were earned from blood, sweat, tears and collective bargaining.

Now to add to his tarnished legacy he is failed attempted at a joke against the Irish  while speaking at the Irish Historical Center in Manhattan has solidified to me that Bloomy has lost his mind and this city.

Bloomberg own the NY Mets? HA! He can kiss my narrow back Irish-American ass.

“QUIET NUMB SKULLS I’M BROADCASTING”

 

Back in the mid 1970’s the NYC Board of Education said that I had to take algebra in High School but really who gives a shit how much a + b equals and (ab) x( cd)? After a couple of weeks of this nonsense I decided my time would be better spent at the OTB on 18 Ave and in a back booth at the J & V Pizzeria. It looks like the management at 105.7 THE FAN in Baltimore feels the same way about exhibition baseball like I did about algebra.

The Mets and Orioles game yesterday was delayed by rain (to the point that Big Pelf tossed but a mere 13 pitches as the rain came and cut his afternoon short) and O’s radio yackers Joe Angel and Fred Manfra did their best to fill about 40 minutes of improvisation when they were told by the head muck Dee-muck at the station to shut it down and go grab and Early Bird dinner. Just as Angel and Manfra were sipping their soup the game resumed without any radio transmission back to Bawlermore.

It was an exhibition game at the end of endless spring training so no one really cares that the game wasn’t broadcast right? Right?

I just called 105.7 and asked why they are not broadcasting the game as scheduled. I was told by the producer that they have not resumed the broadcast after the rain delay because Fred Manfra and Joe Angle left and there is no one there to broadcast the game.

I think this stinks. Now I know it’s a “spring training” game and all that but come on. How bush league can you get? Your broadcasters walk off the set during a rain delay and decide to go home? What do you think?

What do I think? Are you fucking serious? Go take a walk around the Inner Harbor, or Babe’s Museum or score an 8-Ball, you’re in Bawlermore damn it!

Angel was so distraught over missing the remaining innings he posted this on a Baltimore Sun blog:

The decision to end the broadcast was made by the decision making level

at our flagship station. It didn’t come from us…..and certainly not from

the Orioles. Thanks for listening……..There’s a lot to look forward to

with Orioles baseball. Fred and I are grateful and privileged to be your

Orioles baseball companions. See you on the radio!

In other words the boss said pull the plug and they did but Angel wants it to be crystal clear that he and Manfra didn’t walk off the job. Watch out for that bus fellas!

 oh yeah, enjoy this clip
