Good afternoon to all of my loyal and faithful readers out there in the hinterlands, boondocks and wastelands ... and other places like the cess-pool known as New Jersey ...
There was really weird and foggy weather at 7:30am this morning .... is it because Tebow-mania has overtaken The Big Apple? Jus askin’.
As I had anticipated the news media is already slobbering over the potential news stories about Timmy’s signing, the details of which were finally worked out late last night ...
This is just a sample of the local headlines ...
“AMEN! Gang Green gets Tebow.” - front page Daily News
“TEBOW TOWN - Brace yourself Big Apple, Timsanity is officially upon us!” - back page Daily News
“GOD HIM! Tebow a New York Jet.” - front page NY Post
“NO-RING CIRCUS - Jets are clowns for bringing Tebow under tent.” - back page NY Post
“Scrambling Like, er, Tebow, Jets Acquire Him in Trade.” - front page NY Times
“SPLASHY, BUT SUSPECT. The Jets Are Inviting a Quarterback Controversy.” - front page of sports section - NY Times.
All I can say at this point is that it is insane but sure will make for some interesting reading in the future.
OK ... on to other stuff ...
Had a great time last night with John Scott Reed. We did a lot of catching-up over great burgers @ 7A Cafe across from Tompkins Square Park.
Scott is in the middle of some extremely interesting projects at work. Unfortunately, he can’t share the specific details with any one, including moi.
Tonight’s entertainment event is ...
7:30==>NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC @ Avery Fisher Hall - “The program is: Henze (who??) Excerpts from The Bassarids; and, Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, Great.” (discounted TDF ticket).
This concert is not one of my subscription series but I love Schubert, so when it showed up on TDF with seats basically in the same rear orchestra area where my subscription seats are, I just had to book it.
To all of my loyal and faithful readers out there in the hinterlands ... Billi Pod is happy to report that today he finally “bit-the-bullet” and went to the Apple Store on the Upper Westside and got a new 4S iPhone. Yes ... the sobbing you hear in the background is the old phone who feels betrayed after years of faithful service.
Yeah, I know ... but unfortunately loyalty doesn’t carry forward in the technology world - you just gotta update and upgrade when you have to ... sorry ... but that’s the way our tech. world operates.
I am happy to report that 99.5% of the data and apps have now been transferred.
It is an awesome device. I totally avoided even touching the new iPad.
GO YANKEES AND GO GATORS!!
