Ground Zero, Revisited

System Failure

Mets lost 7-6 tonight against the Giants, but the play on the field told a different story and it wasn’t as close as the score would suggest. This was a sloppy game for the Mets, with plenty of fundamental errors, mental lapses and too many missed opportunities to count. Josh Thole had three hits, but […]

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 […]
