First, a big TGIF for all of my Worker Bee friends out there in the morass known as cyberspace.
Next, let’s get this posting started with Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s PLAY IT COOL==>B+. The show is a JO (no, get your minds out of the gutter, I didn’t mean jack off) meaning it is a jazz-opera, the same genre as a rock-opera.
Much of the story line is developed via jazz songs, performed by a stellar cast headed by Sally Mayes in the role of Mary, the owner of Mary’s Hideaway, an underground gay bar in Hollywood, circa 1953.
It is a very enjoyable show, which could be further enhanced, in Billi Pod’s humble opinion, by chopping about 15 minutes off the running time.
It is definitely worth seeing, so catch it if you can. It has a open run.
Tonight will be the first game of The American League Division Series ...
8:37==>YANKEES vs. DETROIT @ Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built.
Billi Pod will be there in his usual seat, surrounded this time by all of his season ticket buddies, for the first time since Opening Day.
It will be our ace CC Sabathia vs. their ace, and probable Cy Young Award winner, Justin Verlander. This will be a nail biter, without a doubt and our only chance to win: take pitches; make Verlander work; and, hopefully, get him out of the game early. If not, look out. We will face him again in Game 5.
Make no mistake about it, folks, The Tigers have a very good team and if they get past The Yankees they could very well make it to The World Series.
The starting time for Game 2 on Saturday has just been announced and it is ... damn ... 8:37pm again ... damn ... and double damn ... meaning ...
That on Saturday Billi Pod will be on his couch in PHC, remote in hand, sucking his thumb as he toggles between the YANKEES/TIGERS game and the GATORS/’BAMA game, which starts at 8:00pm on CBS.
Damn ... but there ain’t nothing I can do about it ... so ... Billi Pod will just live with it ...
It could have been worse. How you are breathlessly asking? Well, what if you are a Boston FuckSox fan ... hummmmm ... I wonder where they are ...
Oh, I know ... either scheduling emergency appointments with their Shrink or lying in the fetal position sucking their thumbs and popping pain pills and other mood-enhancing drugs ...
So, to all of them Billi Pod says==>So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye!! Seeya this Spring you losers!!
<==And, remember, my loyal and faithful readers, in the name of fair and unbiased reporting ....
GO YANKEES AND GO GATORS!!
