Wednesday==>Man, what a bummer yesterday’s so-called “entertainment event” turned out to be.
Yes, that’s right ... your favorite blogger is talking about the 7:05pm WANKIES/RAYS game out at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed and Ego Built. It was hot and very humid ... and ...
The Rays (37-49) beat The Wankies (41-41) 2-1 behind a stellar outing from their ace David Price, aided and abetted by the total lack of offense from the limp Wankie bats. Our pitcher, Hiroki Kuroda, pitched a decent game and deserved better. WTF??
Yes, I stayed until the bitter and disappointing end, our 4th consecutive loss to teams with records below .500. WTF??
The feeling of utter frustration among The Yankee Universe is reflected in the following excerpt from one of the beat-writers in today’s New York Post ...
“They have reached a new low. They generate little offense and no buzz.”
“Bronx Bombers, forget it. They are the Bronx Bummers, 18-22 at home. They are tough to watch in person and on TV.”
This afternoon at 1:05pm will be the final game of the 3-game series. On the mound for The Wankies will be Vidal Nuno (2-4) coming off an excellent outing last week against The FuckSox vs. Jake Odorizzi (3-7) for The Rays.
Happily, tonight’s entertainment event is something much more interesting ... a classical music concert at Lincoln Center ...
Tchaikovsky - Waltz of the Flowers from The Nutcracker;
Tchaikovsky - Marche slave;
Shostakovich - Festive Overture;
Mussorgsky - Night on Bald Mountain;
Rachmaninoff - Vocalise; and,
Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 1, performed by Joyce Yang.

This concert of Russian crowd-pleasers will be conducted by the legendary Bramwell Tovey, who is also a crowd-pleaser with his humorous and informative comments during the program.
Really looking forward to this concert because I am in need of a classical music fix.
When the concert is over I will walk back to the apartment, weather permitting.
