Hello Big Spot faithful. I apologize for the hiatus but its been a crazy month. One thing you learn as a new home owner is what a crappy job the previous owners did to improve the house before selling it. The month was filled with wallpaper removal (sample above. Breathtaking!), yard work, and garage demo. What the hell did we get ourselves into?
So lets do a recap what has happened over the course of the month.
First, let’s send a big congratulations to my man Tony (and wifey) on the birth of their new baby girl Gabriella. “Am I supposed to get a Moil? Where do I find a Moil?” Those of you who don’t know Tony, he is a huge Seinfeld fan. He gave his dissertation to aquire his P.H.D and managed to do it with a Seinfeldian theme. No, it was not DeVry Tech. Now he is a Dr. of his own domain, or at least until Gabriella turns 2. Is it a coincidence that yesterday, the day of his first daughters birth, is Sir Jerry’s birthday as well? Hopefully, he didn’t induce labor. Heellloooooo Newbaby.
Look, there are plenty of people that hate American Idol. Blah, blah, blah, they can say what they want about the “shortcut to stardom” and that “no one is talented” and its all “bubble gum.” Right now, they are right! I can’t stand a single contestant on there. Can they sing? Yes! Do they deserve my attention over the first half of a Yankee game because DIRECTV can’t DVR more than 2 things at a time and change channels? NO! NO! NO! Somebody hand the cocky dude with the Liza Minelli haircut the damn trophy, because I can’t watch or listen to the little hobbit sing another corny version of an already cheesy song. I never thought that there would be anyone that makes Josh Grobin look more gangsta than this little monkey. Top 2 need to be David Cook, and Syesha Mercado. David wins.
Yankees. What can I say? Jorge is hurt. Hurt bad; real bad. And now A-Rod. What does this mean? Well, it means that all the kids have to step up and prove that they are all that they are cracked up to be. Somehow, Phil Huges has to dig down deep and learn how to pitch to big league hitters again. We know he can, but he has to believe it himself. Too much guessing in his mind? Throw strikes and listen to Señor Molina (or Chad Moeller). The season is still young and as long as the Yankees can stay no more than 4 games out with the injuries, they still have a chance. Tampa Bay will cause the most heartache for the Bombers this year. The Rays are supposed to win more games this year than in franchise history. That means they will come at the expense of the Sox and Yanks. Hold on Yankee Fans: it will be a bumpy ride, but hopefully an exciting and historic one.
Well, my first one back, I’m a little rusty.
