Remember Memorial Day

Before we head out to the barbeques, beaches or ball games today, let’s take a moment to remember what this day stands for and not just a day off from work or school. Take a moment to reflect on our military heroes who  have given their lives and the families they’ve left behind.

We can debate the politics of war but we can not debate that war is hell and how much courage our men and women in the military posses.  God bless our fallen soldiers and their families and God bless the greatest country in the world, the United States of America.

The Clash at Shea Stadium October 13th, 1982

<>

 

 

Now this concert I was at The Clash opening for The Who on was supposed to be their farewell tour. How can you beat a double bill like that and have it at Shea? Thank god for You Tube because  it helps jog my memory on some events that are a bit foggy to me to say the least.

APPEARING TONIGHT: GOD OLLIE (SO FAR)

Trying to watch both the Mets-Pads game and Rangers-Caps Game 1 sticking mostly with the Rangers (who are up 3-2 after 2 periods and without a doubt if Alexander Ovechkin played at the 53 rd St park in Brooklyn, he’d get his ass kicked every game.

Looks like Good Ollie has made his 2009 debut tonight so far it’s 2-1 Mets after 5 hopefully Good Ollie can last until the 7th so the firm of Putz & Rodriguez can close this one out.

Long day today as my kids are still home on Easter break so we had to hit the city for the day of theatre lunch and shopping so I’m beat and broke ( a bad combination ) so after reading my e-mails I’m ready for baseball and hockey for the evening.

Back in the A.M

LOOKS LIKE THIS WILL BE A LONG STAND OFF

While the Phil-A-Nista’s are busy (thank God I had some old VHS ofThe Mike Douglas Show) They are still waiting for Jeffy Skill Sets to call back. I heard them say he laughed at them about the demand and muttered something that sounded like “good for that asshole” but he said he’d speak to his Uncle Saul who is a big fan of mine (thank you Uncle Saul Katz!) What the fuck is that smell? Oh dear God they’re cooking scrapple.

DR. PAPELBON TO SURGERY !

 

 

If  you’ve been a reader of this site for awhile you know there are not many words that bother me, I mean com’on there just words, what the fuck? right. But for some reason when someone calls another person a ”cancer” it sends my blood pressure to the god damn roof. So when I saw the story today that Johnathon Papelbon said that Manny Ramirez was a “cancer that had to be cut out”  I just found it so offensive. Believe me I’ve been called a lot of things in my life but to me you have got to have a lot of hate for someone to call them a cancer.

I know what Manny did to the Red Sox last year was awful and yes he did quit on them and that is reprehensible. But if you’re going to attack a guy why use the term cancer when a a simple asshole will do.

“ALEX, JEFF NOVITZKI FBI, TELL YOUR COUSIN TO SURRENDER BY 4 PM TODAY”

What a fucking joke!  Oh man this is a Highlander Haters Paradise, First, Alex Rodriguez threw his “cousin” under the bus, then he claimed if he went to college he might have had better sense to know right from wrong. Then to top that off he said he bench pressed 340 lbs in High School so he could get a letter jacket because he was poor and needed the jacket. My God I had to run to the men’s room after that one because I just about peed my pants.

I didn’t see any video of this farce but I’d love to see the look on Captain Craptastics face and I’m sure all he kept thinking was “maybe I can get traded to the Detroit Tigers”

Hate to break the news to you Highlander fans but it’s over O-V-E-R for your team. Your stuck with this lying sack of shit for another 8 years LOL

SLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOWWWWWWLLLLLY I TURN

Since the upgrade of the back end of the bullpen, the Mets off season has dragged on like the Bataan Death March, every day the same story lines of OP, No Manny, Petey begging for a job, hearing the name Randy Wolf more often than I’d like and on and on but I’m starting to get an understanding on what it’s like to negotiate and make a big decision on a life changing matter.

My son got his high school acceptance letters this weekend and I’m proud to say he made all three of his high school choices and has been accepted in the Scholars Program at all three schools. His top two choices (St Peter’s Boys and Monsignor Farrell) have offered him full four year scholarships (yes, hard to believe he’s my kid but believe me he takes after his mom thank god) both schools are excellent schools and each one offers things the other doesn’t such as small class (St Peters) and broader base of extracurricular (Farrell) so the choice is a difficult one.

As I said my son is 100 % like his mother so he thinks things out and is very methodical about his decisions unlike his father who goes on impulse and does very little thinking so this decsion may go to the deadline which is January 31.

So my concern for which way Omar and the Mets will turn for pitching has been diverted while my own family negotiating is ongoing but I would like to find out if Scott Boras represents High School freshman?

……AND ANOTHER THING………

I forgot to post about the bullpen. IT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! Wags or no Wags all this bullshit about who should close and who should set up how about this how about someone in the bullpen strapping on a pair of balls and stepping up and lead. I’m an Aaron Heilman fan and yes he sucks as a reliever and yes I feel he should get the start Saturday night if Jon Niese doesn’t but for the love of God will you stand up like a fucking man and take charge here! Between Heilman and Schoenewies I don’t know who I want to crack in the head with a folding chair first. Is there anyone in that bullpen who doesn’t pee sitting down? Can someone go up to Warlord Jerry and DEMAND to pitch the 9th inning. Go ahead Eddie Kunz don’t be shy, you could kick anyone ass on this team if they object SHOW ME YOUR BALLS AND DEMAND TO CLOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now back to my relaxing afternoon.
