�SORRY ABOUT NO POSTINGS YESTERDAY��. But I was off a great trip to the Midwest. See I won a contest, �Cruising with the Vikings� it was a daylong boat cruise on Lake Minnetonka (which I believe is Cherokee for �Titties and Tequila�) what a great time. From the time the Vikes main pimp..errr cornerback Fred Smoot met me at the airport to the last lap dance of the day it was well worth the trip. Man and just think Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes. THE SKILL SETS LAND GRAB Yesterday in the New York Sun, there was an article that Freddy Skill Sets was in the running to take over the Nassau Mausoleum and renovate it from the ground up and delve lope the land around the dreaded eyesore in Uniondale. Charles Wang, the owner of the New York Fishsticks hockey team (in case you haven�t noticed I HATE the Fishsticks hockey team especially the mentally deficient GM Mike Millbury who I came thisclose to along with his Bruins teammate Terry O�Reily the night the climbed into the stands at MSG. Someday I should write a post about that night and how after the game we hung out with Ranger enforcer Nick Fotiu eating pizza at John�s Pizza on Bleecker St) and two other developers. If Wang were to lose this bid it would seem he would either move or unload the Fishsticks hockey team and Freddy Skill Sets would be interested in buying the team. The problem with that is he could not put there games on SportsNet New York network as the Fishsticks have a 25 year contract with the Dreaded Dolan�s. But Freddy Skill Sets has something else up his sleeve as if he gets this land he will build a minor league ball park there presumably putting the Mets Double A team from Binghamton there. this for password ATTENTION: COME OUT AND MEET THE MAN HIMSELF As I�m thumbing through the NY Daily News this morning I came across this add for Van Buren Buick Pontiac GMC: STAURDAY OCT 15TH COME IN AND MEET ED KRANEPOOL If my kids didn�t have games tomorrow I�d take the ride out to Garden City Park to see my man Steady Eddie. If your interested in meeting Eddie and getting a free hot dog and soda, he will be there from 12 pm to 2 pm at 2257 Jericho Turnpike, Garden City Park. I have met Eddie a couple of times before I started this blog and I had some great conversation with him. He got a kick out of me telling him how my nickname as a kid was �Kranepool� but since I stared the blog I have not run into him. A couple of people have e mailed me saying they have mentioned my blog to him and he got a chuckle out of it. So far no cease and desist order has come my way. SAY NO TO FLASH Why would any sane person think that the Mets would want to sign Tom Gordon to be their closer? The aim here is to IMPROVE the bullpen not bring a guy who wilts under pressure. FROM A (LAME) DUKE TO SIR LORD BALTIMORE The (Lame) Duke is said to be the front runner to take over the GM spot for the Orioles. I�M TURNING JAPANESE, I THINK I�M TURNING JAPANESE, I REALLY THINK SO Samurai Bobby V has his Chibe Lotte Marines one win away from going to the Japanese World Series. Whether you love him or hate him you cannot denies the guy can manage a baseball team. (TO POST A COMMENT CLICK ON THE TIME OF THIS POSTING) < |
