Sunday==>HAPPY EASTER SUNDAY to all of my loyal and faithful readers and followers out there in the morass known as cyberspace and also to those in the hinterlands, boondocks and wastelands.
It is a really nice day here in The Big Apple, The Greatest City In The World, bright, sunny, with azure blue skies. At noon it is 54º with a nice breeze coming off The Hudson River.
Tonight I am having Easter Dinner down in Chelsea with my friends Michael Pederson and Dennis Dohman and 13+ of our mutual friends. I will get to their apartment around 5:00pm.
It is always a lot of fun, with good food and lots of intelligent conversations. Almost everyone who will be in attendance can be classified as being “entertainment-involved.”
Really looking forward to it even though I know I will catch a lot of grief about my decision to leave The Big Apple in May. Oh well ...
So ... let’s move on with Billi Pod’s report card on yesterday's entertainment event, the one-man Off Broadway show ...
THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? - Robert Dubac is in pursuit of the holy grail of male/female relationships, the answer to the age old question, “What do women want?” With the help of five bonehead chauvinists and his feminine side he miraculously comes up with the answer ... sorta==>A-
Yep, your favorite Big Apple blogger totally enjoyed this show that is very much in-your-face funny while being thought-provoking, too.
The premise is that Dubac has been dumped by his girlfriend and he is at a loss to understand why and/or what he has to do to get her back. In addition to his inner feminine side, he relies on 5 chauvinist friends, with hilarious results.
The show is very well written and extremely well performed and the running time flies by.
Billi Pod says==>see this show.
This is the companion piece in repertory with The Book of Moron, which I saw on the March 29th and gave an A.
It is playing at Urban Stages on West 30th Street, has a running time of 1:15, without intermission, and runs through April 26th.
When the show was over I walked back to the apartment and settled into a couch potato modality to watch some Spring Training baseball and then the two Final Four games.
As most of you loyal and faithful readers and followers know ...
In the first game the Duke Blue Devils handily beat Michigan State 81-61 ... then ...
The Wisconsin Badgers beat the Kentucky Wildcats 71-64. In the final 6-minutes Wisconsin outscored the ‘Cats 15-4.
So ... on Monday night it will be Duke vs. Wisconsin ... and ...
Billi Pod predicts a Duke win.
Moving on ...
Tonight marks the beginning of the 2015 baseball season with the first game being the St. Louis Cardinals vs. the Chicago Cubs carried on ESPN2 @ 8:00pm. I will watch the game, of course.
In tomorrow’s posting Billi Pod will share his predictions for the upcoming season ... so ... stay tuned.
Oh ... yesterday’s walking mileage got Billi Pod back on track with==>5.28 miles. This was accomplished by walking to and from my afternoon show and then a major in-apartment walking regimen during the basketball games.
HAVE A GREAT EASTER EVERYONE!!
Total mileage for 2015==>379.74 miles (average 4.04 miles per day)
