Gooood morning ….

Good morning.

Good morning.

Good morning folks.

Do you guys remember the library? When I had reports to do we’d go to the library after school. There were even such things as library dates. Of course, that was before the Internet.

Anyway, I’ve re-discovered the library. It has become my office. I’ll go there in the morning to write and email letters. Some times there are too many distractions at home. Plus, I have to get out of the house.

I will get some breakfast and head there. Work until lunchtime then come home and make some calls.

I have to check in with the Mets today on ticket refunds. You know, if they would just make the damn playoffs there wouldn’t be this hassle. Also, see what’s going on with Jerry Manuel’s coaching staff.

And, of course, if anything happens during the day you can read about it here. Have a good day.

Channel surfing on a Sunday ….

Watched the Phillies advance, the Giants crush Seattle and the Colts pull off a wild one. Rays up early in Chicago. Will watch the Red Sox tonight. If there’s anything you’d like to say, feel free.

Just a reminder, tomorrow night at 7 I’ll host another Mets Chat Room. Looking forward to your participation.

Gooooood morning.

Good morning all. Hope this weekend is smiling on you.

It was fun last night. I didn’t expect that much talk on a Saturday night. It makes me feel good that people are responding to the blog. I can’t explain the Cubs. No curse. They just got waxed there was no bad luck. The series was decided with Game 2.

Off to get some breakfast. A veggie omelet. I like to put Tabasco and strawberry preserves on mine. I call it `sweet heat.’ Try it, you’ll like it.

Will spend much of the day sending out resumes and clips. This job hunting is a bear. Will have the playoffs and football on, and, of course, I’ll be monitoring on-line so feel free to drop a comment or two.

My NFL picks:

Chicago over Detroit
Green Bay over Atlanta
San Diego over Miami
NY Giants over Seattle
Philly over Washington
Carolina over KC
Baltimore over Tennessee
Indy over Houston
Denver over Tampa Bay
Dallas over Cincinnati
Arizona over Buffalo
NE over SF
NO over Minnesota

In the playoffs, I like the White Sox, Brewers and Red Sox.

Enjoy the morning. I’ll look for you this afternoon.

Loose threads: Saturday night playoffs edition.

What's on your mind?

What's on your mind?

Greetings all. Hope you had a good day. Watching the Brewers take an early 2-0 lead on the Phillies. Later the Dodgers can put away the Cubs. If you’d like to talk about the playoffs, or about Jerry Manuel getting a contract, or anything else, this is the place.

Warrant issued for Burgos

An arrest warrant was issued Friday in the Dominican Republic for Mets pitcher Ambiorix Burgos on charges stemming from a hit-and-run accident that killed two women.

“We recommend that Mr. Burgos turn himself in so we can start the judicial process,” Prosecutor Raul Quiroz said.

Burgos’ SUV struck Josefina Minaya Martinez, 38, and Angely Fana, 29, Tuesday in the town of Nagua, and both died at a hospital. Witnesses placed Burgos behind the wheel, but his cousin Edwin Silvestre Sanchez claimed to be driving. Sanchez was released from police custody Friday.

Quiroz said Burgos had recently been arrested on a charge of illegal weapon possession and released. Burgos was also arrested last month in New York on assault and harassment charges.
