Giants Fans Make Themselves At Home, Dodgers Fans Right Behind Them

In this photo from Yahoo Sports taken during last nights game, you can see evidence of what you probably heard during the game’s broadcast which was a crowd where San Francisco Giants fans far outnumbered Mets fans at Citi Field. The Mets didn’t roll out the red carpet for them, but the black and orange outfield walls […]

Ground Zero, Revisited

It was a quiet President and a small group of White House officials who came back to Ground Zero today after first stopping at the Fire House where 15 firemen were lost. He then moved on to the site where Ground Zero has changed a lot since most of us last saw it. There are […]

Never Underestimate The Power Of The President

I stayed up very late with the Mets last night, but they went into extra innings and I went to sleep. I missed the biggest news in a long time – the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s hideaway house with all killed including him. Special forces buried him in the ocean so no one could […]
