This is the time of year to express gratitude for what we have and realize despite our troubles somebody always has it worse. I am thankful for family and friends, but also to my readers who have supported me and my blog.
I appreciate your readership and comments. I welcome the give-and-take with you and have tried to make this blog both entertaining and informative. There are times things go in spurts, but I am trying to maintain consistency and want to keep giving you more.
In a couple of weeks I’ll be at the Winter Meetings and planning another trip to spring training. Until then, please keep reading and know how much I appreciate you.
Earlier this month in a post I attributed a Terry Collins quote to a group of reporters. It has been pointed out to me that it was specifically attributed to Newsday’s Marc Carig. Please accept my apologies. Thank you.
Good morning all, and perhaps in some cases, good afternoon. I hope you had a happy and safe New Year’s Eve and wish you carry that throughout the year.
January 1 always represents a fresh start, from diet to exercise to breaking bad habits. There will time enough for that, but for now I will honor my own holiday tradition which is to spend the day making my own list of resolutions, both personal and for the blog.
I will also spend part of the day writing Happy New Year’s notes to family and friends, and, of course, watching the bowl games. I liked it better when there were up to seven games today instead of spreading them out for a week.
I will share them with you shortly, along with several resolutions the Mets should make. For now, I hope you’ll spend the day with your friends and family before it is back to the grind before our next national holiday, which is the Super Bowl.
