PSSSST, HEY BUDDY OVER HERE, WANNA BUY A SHARE OF A BIG LEAUGE BASEBALL TEAM?

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.

IF YOU WANT TO LIVE ON A SNOW PLOWED STREET, MOVE TO TIMES SQUARE

This photo is paid for by the Twisted Citizens Committee To Bring Back The Old Forty-Duce,

Steve Keane, President.

Hey Bed-Stuy, Park Slope, St Albans and Eastchester, Mayor Moneybags is sorry your streets have not been plowed but there are more important areas of the city that need to be cleared of snow before you folks get relief.  The first tourist in NYC that wishes me a Happy New Year will get a punch in the face.

Exhausted from shoveling snow? Sick of the holidays?  Depressed that this is the beginning of a long cold winter? Here’s a name that will make you smile and warm your heart, Benny Agbayani.

Add another name to the Mets search for a low risk/high reward pitcher, Chris Capuano .

Adam Rubin’ snitches in Mexico report on Oliver Perez getting lit up again in the Mexican Winter League. Before you say “cut his sorry ass” a caveat, Ollie is holding left handed batters to a .163 BA. He could be one very expensive LOOGY.

So Brett Farve gets a $50K fine for sending pics of his tallywhacker to Jenn Sterger. Sterger’s attorney is outraged, OUTRAGED that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down such a light sentence.  After looking at the evidence, Goodell suggested to Sterger to take Farve to small claims court.

See what happens when you become Mike Francesa’s butt boy, as Jon Heyman has become, you make stupid statements that shreds your credibility.
