John Scott Reed - The Gators - John Lennon - Baseball

Sunday==>Need to get today’s posting underway because your favorite blogger here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, is fortunate to have been blessed with some much needed face-time with John Scott Reed aka Fabson @ 2:00pm at his posh apartment on West 37th Street, just blocks South of PHC.

So ... we will get today’s posting started first on the sports scene ...

Yesterday afternoon at Neyland Stadium the Florida 'Taters ... oooops ... I mean Florida Gators rallied to beat Tennessee 10-9 in a game that will undoubtedly foster a quarterback controversy in The Gator Nation as Coach Muskrat benched his starting QB Jeff Driskel and replaced him with freshman Treon Harris, who lead us to victory.

I remember when the Florida ‘Taters ... oooops ... sorry ... I mean the Florida Gators were an offensive juggernaut instilling shock and awe in their opponents. I wonder if those days can ever be replicated under Coach Muskrat? I think not.

Anyway ... as “they” say ... a win is a win is a win.

Talk about a crazy college football week ... on Thursday #2 Oregon lost and then yesterday #3 Alabama, #4 Oklahoma and #6 Texas A&M all lost.

Yep ... the remainder of the season is gonna be interesting.

We will now move on to Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s entertainment event ... the Off Broadway show ... 

LENNON: THROUGH A GLASS ONION, award-winning actor and singer, John R. Waters, takes the stage with accompanist Stewart D'Arrietta and begins to perform - part spoken word, part concert, and all heart, a celebration of one of the most distinct voices of his generation, featuring a catalogue of Lennon’s greatest songs==>A

This was a wonderful evening’s entertainment featuring two extremely talented performers who brought John Lennon and his songs to life before a highly appreciative audience.

The show features 34 Lennon compositions, as well as monologues exploring Lennon’s life and genius. Some of the compositions are done in their entirety, others in abbreviated form.

The audience was really into the show and we gave the performers a well-deserved standing ovation at curtain call.

Yeah, I left the theatre with a big smile on my face and my head full of great rock music.

Billi Pod says==>if you like rock music and/or The Beatles, then this definitely is the show for you.

It is playing at the Union Square Theatre on East 17th Street, has a running time of 1:30, without intermission, and is an open run.

Moving on ...

When I get back from my face-time with Fabson it will be time to settle in for my entertainment schedule for the remainder of the day/evening ... Division Series baseball ...

3:30==>Orioles @ Tigers, Game 3 on TBS.

7:30==>Angels @ Royals, Game 3 on TBS

In closing, and in anticipation of your inquires ... yes, your favorite blogger stayed up last night until the final out of the 18-inning Giants/Nationals game that set a major league record for the longest playoff game at 6:23. The Giants won on a HR from Brandon Bell.


Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>4.23 miles (or, 9,248 steps)

Total mileage for 2014==>1,126.30 miles (average 4.07 miles per day)
