Wednesday==>We need to get this posting started because your favorite blogger here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In the World, has an entertainment doubleheader scheduled ... so ... let’s do it ...
The first part of the doubleheader is ...
1:05pm==>YANKEES vs. ORIOLES @ Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed And Ego Built. (season ticket package exchange)
This is the 3rd game of the 4-game series. On the mound for The Yankees (81-76) will be the rookie Shane Greene (5-3) vs. Kevin Gausman (7-7) for The Orioles (94-63).
This is my final home game of the 2014 season.
When the game is over I will come back to PHC, have my usual fruit and cheese plate, and then it will be time for the second part of my doubleheader ...
7:30pm==>THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE - “To the world at large and even to herself, June Bunkridge IS Sister George beloved village nurse on "Applehurst", a popular BBC radio soap opera. But when radio executives decide to give ratings a boost by killing off her character, June's already precarious private life threatens to crumble exposing her as the gin swilling, cigar chomping tyrant she really is.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
This show is playing at The Theatre Row Complex on my West 42nd Street block, has a running time of 2:15, with intermission, and runs through October 1st.
In closing ... as you loyal and faithful readers and followers know, last night’s entertainment event was also out at The House That Greed And Ego Built, and, it wasn't pleasant ... because ...
The Orioles slugged a total of 17 hits to beat The Yankees 5-4, in a game that ended in the bottom of the 9th inning with Derek Jeter striking out with the tying run on base. Not good ... not good at all. Although we scored 4 runs we were held to only 6 hits. The Wankies were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position. A very frustrating evening, to put it mildly.
The sound of The Fat Lady is getting ever louder. It is only a matter of when ... not if ... just when ... because our so-called "magic" number is now down to 1 ... meaning ... a loss or a Kansas City win and we are toast.
So ... time to post this and then head out to the game for my last opportunity to see Derek Jeter in person as an active Yankee.
Total mileage for 2014==>1,089.02 miles (average 4.09 miles per day)
GO GATORS!! GO YANKEES!!
