The Gators Win!! - Riverside Symphony - Chairs and A Long Table - Pool (no water)

Sunday==>All is well in The Gator Nation, at least for the moment, because yesterday Matt Jones and Kelvin Taylor combined for 389 yards rushing and four touchdowns as the unranked Gators upset #11 Georgia 38-20, ending a 3-game losing streak in the series and perhaps saving Coach Muskrat’s job.

Yes, I unabashedly admit that I was totally wrong in my prediction and, of course, I am glad I was.

Our next game is at Vanderbilt at 7:30pm next Saturday, carried on SECN.

It is going to be interesting to see how the rest of the season plays out.

Moving on to Billi Pod’s report card on last night’s entertainment event ...

A classical music concert at Lincoln Center ...

RIVERSIDE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA @ Alice Tully Hall - “Romance in the Air” - The program was:

Lansky - Line and Shadow;
Faure - Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra;
Chopin - Grand Polonaise Brillante; and,
Schubert - Symphony No. 4 “Tragic”

This was a totally enjoyable concert.

The highlight for me was Schubert’s Symphony No. 4.

My comp. seat couldn’t have been better ... row P, in the very center of the orchestra section ... perfecto!!

When the concert was over it was still raining and it was windy and nasty and cold so I didn’t even consider walking back to the apartment.

Let’s move on some more with the details on Billi Pod’s entertainment doubleheader for today ... starting with ...

The Off Broadway show ...

3:00==>CHAIRS AND A LONG TABLE - “A drama that follows a group of Asian American actors in New York City as they prepare to attend a conference addressing racial discrimination in the casting of a classic Chinese play, where the two lead characters have been cast with non-Asian actors.” (Off Broadway  complimentary ticket)

This show is in previews and is playing in repertory with LIVIN' LA VIDA IMELDA. It opens on November 6th, is playing at The Theatre Row Complex on my West 42nd Street block, has a running time of 1:30, without intermission, and runs through November 22nd.

When the show is over I will walk the few steps back to my apartment building, have my usual fruit and cheese plate and then it will be time to head down to The Village for the second half of the doubleheader ...

The Off Broadway show ...

7:30==>POOL (no water) - “A famous artist invites old friends to her new home for a long awaited reunion. But the celebration comes to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. An almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape - could her suffering be the group’s next work of art?” (Off Broadway - complimentary ticket)

I have a feeling that this show is gonna fall into the “loved it or totally hated it” category. We will see.

It is playing at The Barrow Street Theatre in The West Village, has a running time of 1:10, without intermission, and runs through November 24th.

So, my loyal and faithful readers and followers, you are now up-to-date and your favorite blogger hopes that you will have a great rest of the weekend out there in the boondocks, wastelands and hinterlands.

Yesterday’s Pedometer mileage==>3.51 miles (or, 7,669 steps)

Total mileage for 2014==>1,249.91 miles (average 4.10 miles per day)
