The Wrath of The Entertainment Gods

Saturday==>First, I am happy to report that Gina and Finley are now back home with Alex and Saylor and all is well in the Falletta household down in Elgin, SC, which is just outside of Columbia.

Man, I am mentally counting down the hours until I get the opportunity to hold that new bundle-of-joy, my second great-granddaughter.

Moving on ...

Yesterday your favorite blogger succumbed to his inner baseball nerd and elected to remain in the cozy confines of PHC on a Friday night here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, to watch game 2 of the 4-game YANKEE/RAYS series from that joke known as Tropicana Field, located in St. Petersburg.

Well, in the name of fair and unbiased reporting I have to share that the local Entertainment Gods invoked their collective wrath and turned Billi Pod's evening into a disgusting puke-inducing nightmare.

This is what I am talking about==>The Wankies were winning 5-3 going into the bottom of the 7th inning when the bullpen imploded, giving up 3 runs in the 7th and then 5 runs in the 8th. The final score was 11-5, breaking our 5-game winning streak in a disgusting fashion.

It was really painful to watch. I won’t bore you loyal and faithful readers and followers with any more details. 

Tonight @ 7:10pm is game 3. On the mound for The Yankees will be Ivan Nova (2-1) vs. Chris Archer (1-1).

Billi Pod is in the process of trying to make amends to The Entertainment Gods. Hopefully, they will be in a forgiving mood.

Moving on ...

This afternoon I have a matinee show and I am still weighing my options for the evening.

The matinee is an Off Broadway show ...

2:00==>JACKIE & MARILYN - “Jackie and Marilyn, two of the most glamorous and famous women of their time,  continue to fascinate us. This play is a fictional imagining of what might have gone on behind closed doors of the most famous love triangle of all time – if it ever happened.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)

The show is in very early previews and there has been no advance buzz.

It is playing at the Theatre Row Complex on my West 42nd Street block, has a running time of 90 minutes, without intermission, and runs through May 3rd.

Hopefully, something good will show up for tonight on one of my ticket services.


Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>3.50  miles (or, 7,656 steps)

Total mileage for 2014==>366.83  miles (average 3.40 miles per day)
