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 […]

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 […]
MMO Family and Friends, As you may or may not have noticed we are missing our leader. Due to unforeseen, and untimely, circumstances Joe D had to undergo surgery. I won’t go into details because he’s going to kill me for posting this as it is, but he will be there for a while. As second in command I wanted to ask everyone to keep Joe in your prayers and if you would like please […]
MLB Supports SOPA and That Should Bother You I am all for legislation that goes after individuals that pirate copyrighted material. This bill appears to be too vague and far-reaching. Modern corporations can’t be trusted with this far-reaching power because they will use it in a way to destroy necessary competition. The reality is this type of bill could wind up legislating our news. Is that a situation you feel comfortable with? Imagine the only […]

Sometimes real events have a way of transcending sports. In the aftermath of the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State, the school’s Board of Trustees have fired legendary football head coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier on Wednesday night. The 84-year-old coach has been at Penn State since 1950 and has been the head coach since 1966. The Nittany Lions’ 10-7 victory over Illinois on Oct. 29 made Paterno the winningest coach […]
