Sunday==>Make no mistake about it, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, yesterday was mostly a day of disappointment for your favorite blogger here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, as he spent almost all day and evening glued to his 42” flat screen TV watching sports, mostly college football.
Of course, the major disappointment was the embarrassing debacle in Tuscaloosa as the Crimson Tide ultimately crushed my Florida Gators 42-21 in a game carried on national TV.
The Gators were out-manned, out-coached and out-of-gas by the merciful conclusion of the game where ‘Bama piled up 645 total yards of offense, the most-ever by a Gator opponent.
Folks, trust me on this ... it is going to be a painfully long season as The Gator Nation endures fiasco after fiasco generated by Coach Will Muskrat.
Come on Jeremy Foley, show some balls and just fire this disgrace and his horde of minions ASAP.
Of course, it’s not going to happen until the season is over ... but ...
Oh ... my son Bill III aka The Bill finally gave me 17 points, but, of course, that wasn’t enough, so I lost ... meaning ... this coming Christmas I will have to wear a ‘Bama T-shirt and cap during Christmas dinner and during our family present exchange. Oh the shame!!
My sports disappointment mounted as The Yankees lost to Toronto, details below.
There were some interesting games to watch, including the South Carolina/Vanderbilt game, the FSU/Clemson game and the LSU/Ole Miss game.
Well ... why don’t we just move on ... is that OK with you?
Good ... so here we go ...
For a good part of this afternoon my immediate Hell’s Kitchen ‘hood is going to be in turmoil because of the following protest march ...
“The People’s Climate March” will have about 100,000 marchers, including local politicians and such notables as Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo. It will begin at 11:30am at Columbus Circle, march east to 6th Avenue, south on 6th to 42nd Street, west of 42nd to 11th Avenue and the south on 11th to 34th Street.
Needless-to-say, this will cause utter chaos in Midtown as the streets are closed and pedestrian traffic is controlled and often rerouted. Stay tuned.
My entertainment event for today is ...
5:00==>TEACH, TEACHER, TEACHEST - “This drama tells the story of a pupil who arrives at the apartment of a new tutor for a lesson. What happens to her is as unexpected and random as life itself. Loosely based on Eugene Ionesco’s modern classic The Lesson, the play is a cat and mouse struggle that questions what is happening and what is not.” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)
This show is playing at the Intar Theatre on West 53nd Street, has a running time of 1:40, without intermission, and runs through October 5th.
Thinking about catching a movie when the show is over ... depending on my frame of mind.
Now, on the sports scene ...
Yesterday afternoon out at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed and Ego Built, The Yankees (79-75) lost 6-3 to Toronto (78-75).
We are still just barely alive in the second wild card race.
This afternoon at 1:05pm is the final game of the 4-game series. On the mound for The Yankees will be Masahiro Tanaka (12-4) vs. Drew Hutchinson (10-12) for The Blue Jays.
Tanaka is making his first start since being placed on the disabled list on July 8th with an elbow inflammation.
OK ... time to post this so I can make a quick run to the grocery store before the parade reaches my ‘hood.
Oh ... yesterday was also a rather disappointing mileage day ... oh well ...
HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE WEEKEND EVERYONE!!
Total mileage for 2014==>1,075.59 miles (average 4.09 miles per day)
GO GATORS!! GO YANKEES!!
