The Mets Have Returned My Money

I would like to thank the Mets for finally returning my money.

Took two weeks but my playoff ticket money was refunded.

It should have been done the first day.

>Don't Spread Ashes At A Stadium

Mr. Marvin was a lifelong Yankees fan who could remember the starting lineups from when, as a boy, his house was a short walk from the House That Ruth Built in the Bronx. The Yankees were such a cornerstone of his life that after he died in 1999 at age 86, his grandson Jeff helped scatter his ashes in Monument Park.

There was a similar story last week involving some ashes spread at Shea and the family was trying to “retrieve” them.

I kinda don’t feel bad for these people.

I’m sorry they lost a loved one, but to expect that you are going to recover ashes that have been mixed in with dirt, sod, rainwater, chemicals, spit and who knows what…..you’re just kidding yourself.   I know there’s the idea that you could go to 161st and River and look down on dad…but nothing is forever.  I’m sure there were some colonists who buried some people and in the 20th century we had no problem covering over their graves with a skyscraper.  Hell, we’re even going to do something similar downtown down on Church & Liberty.

Daily News Buys Propoganda But Doesn’t Ask WHY A New Stadium?

Flipping through the News this morning I saw this nonsense:

Giants and Jets owners say they had no choice with pricey PSLs 


Really?   That’s interesting.  No choice huh?  Let me read more…

Mara says that the Giants would have been unable to avoid the PSL program even if they had known how severe the financial crisis would become. “That program is necessary to complete the construction of the new stadium,” he says.

Oh.  Interesting.  The PSLs fund the new stadium.

The question nobody answers, and the question the mainstream media continues not to ask is:

WHY DID THEY NEED A NEW STADIUM?

Show me one fan, Giants or Jets, who had a problem with the “old” stadium.   Any complaints are related to parking (especially since construction started on the Xanadu boondogle).   It’s hard to get their on mass transit, more so now that they made it a two seat ride.     Building a new stadium in the exact same place solves none of these issues.

The Giants are…let me check….undefeated and the Super Bowl champions.   The Jets were able to get this Brett Favre guy.   The NFL still has revenue sharing and a pretty good TV contract.

You wanted to make even more money.

You wanted to make even more money.

You wanted to make even more money.

Be honest when sending out those $20,000 invoices.
