Sunday==>It is a pretty day here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, but, dammit, the temperature has dropped back to the upper 40s.

Let’s get started with Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s Off Broadway show ...

BROKEN FENCES, about two neighbors, one black, one white, trying to protect their families without destroying their community==>B

The show is well-acted and thought-provoking but there is way way too much yelling, screaming and cussing, mostly from the black characters. It gets very old by the end of the show.

A friend of mine posted the following comment to my posting about the show on my FaceBook Timeline ... 

Elodie Bentley - Seems like more and more I find that yelling and screaming is passed off as "acting."

I couldn’t agree more.

Anyway ... moving on ...

Today’s entertainment event will be ...

5:00==>KEEN TEENS - “World premieres of three plays written for, and performed by, teenagers.” (Off Broadway - full price ticket)

The show is playing at the Theatre Row Complex on my block.

This will be the 3rd consecutive year that I have seen this talented company perform. Their talent and energy flows from the stage and totally engulfs the theatre. It is fun just being a member of the audience.

Now a bit of sports ...

Yesterday afternoon the Yankees got a stellar performance, finally, from Phil Hughes, who pitched 8-innings of shutout ball, giving up only 4-hits and striking out 9. The Yankees won 4-2 in game 2 of the Oakland A’s series.

Game 3 of the series will be this afternoon @ 1:05pm out at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built, with Andy Pettitte (3-2), coming off of a terrible last start vs. Dan Strally (1-0) for the A’s.

Of course I will be in front of the tube until it is time for my afternoon show.

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>3.14 miles (or, 6,871 steps)

Total mileage since 7/1/12==>1,443.29 miles
