The world awakens this morning seeking to right itself after a pair of explosions rocked Boston yesterday afternoon. Lost are three souls, with no fewer than another one hundred and thirty-two injured. Also lost in the day’s events, a nation’s sense of security when it comes to sporting events. Long thought to be a potential target, major sporting events are often subjected to increased security measures. To date, the United States had been successful (or [...]
There has been a lot of talk about heroes around here lately… and I think it is time I told a story about a hero of my own. Ever come across somebody in your life that you just knew was impossible to dislike? Their inner core, nay, their soul was glowing with such warmth that you knew they could put a smile on your face no matter how bad your day was? Yeah…that was Adam. [...]
Updated 1/18 I just had to delete 67 comments from readers and writer alike. Still more to chop, but seriously what gives? Why must some of you engage in a wicked game of “johnny on the pony” and only add to the situation we are trying to rectify? What’s with this new thing of everyone calling each other out because they have an “agenda”? Everyone accusing the other of having an agenda? That’s rich… It’s [...]
On behalf of everyone at Mets Merized Online we would like to take some time to remember and honor all of the brave servicemen and women that have served and continue to serve our great country. Each Veteran’s Day we have an opportunity to recognize all the amazing men and women who make up the greatest military in the world. They faithfully protect our borders and our freedom and our way of life. With the Manhattan VA [...]
Hurricane Sandy came through the past few days and absolutely battered the tri-state area. Homes are destroyed, millions are without power, the entire transit system is in shambles and a death toll that continues to rise. We have just experienced one of, if not the worst natural disasters in our area’s history, and now is the time to come together and pull through this as one just as we have so many times before. Many [...]
Across the Eastern seaboard as we huddle for shelter, preparing to weather Hurricane Sandy, three men stand unfazed, with a job still to do no matter what the conditions. At Arlington National Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknowns will be guarded by three sentinels throughout the course of the hurricane. Since 1948, the tomb which holds the remains of unidentified soldiers from World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam, is guarded around the clock, 24/7, rain [...]
The fires are long extinguished, the debris has been cleared from the streets, the rebuilding is well underway at Ground Zero, but the wounds are very much still open. 9/11 is a day that is still very heavy on the hearts of every New Yorker, and every American. One is hard pressed to find anyone in the Tri-State area that didn’t know someone, or knew someone that knew someone, who was in Lower Manhattan on the day [...]
Iconic American astronaut Neil Armstrong, who was the first person to walk on the moon, has died at the age of 82, his family said on Saturday. Armstrong died following complications from heart-bypass surgery he underwent earlier this month, the family said in a statement, just two days after his birthday on August 5. As commander of the Apollo 11 mission, Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon on July 20, [...]
It is with great sadness to inform you that Sean Kenny’s mother passed away this morning. I spoke to Sean at 1:00 AM last night when he called to tell me that his mother was in some kind of medical distress and that they had rushed her to the hospital. This morning at 8:30 AM I was wondering how his mom was doing and I texted him to see if her condition had improved. He [...]
On a sad note, television broadcasting legend Dick Clark has died of a heart attack today at the age of 82. Clark is best known for hosting blockbuster television shows such as American Bandstand, $25,000 Pyramid, and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. “America’s Teenager” was once asked about his always youthful looks and offered this advice, ”If you want to stay young looking, pick your parents very carefully.” Clark is survived by his 3 children from [...]
Mets Merized Online was invited last Monday to cover a Mets food tasting at CitiField’s Delta Sky360 Club, or as they put it, “The All-Star Dining Line-Up.” Due to some fortunate circumstances (for me), I was able to attend. So I headed out Monday with a camera and my appetite. I know that there are some things that haven’t grown on me yet at CitiField, but their food options make it difficult to choose what [...]
