Welcome back! Really weird having that extra day off, wasn’t it? Just kind of threw me out of whack, but then along comes an 8th inning rain delay…our 75th of the season, I think???… and all seems right with the world…not really. Love the rain only because it keeps my water bill down from less sprinkler usage.
Here’s my All-Star Break version of “How I Spent My Summer Vacation”…spanned the entire Tri-State area and beyond, logging a lot o’ miles in the Vista Cruiser…among the excitement, welcoming an exchange student from France for 2 weeks, as she spends time with our daughter and sees NYC for the first time…chauffering them around…sightseeing…beach…major rollercoaster riding at Six Flags…eating fried dough covered in powdered sugar…nearly giving it right back after riding the biggest coaster in the park…more driving…trip to JFK to pick up our son, who decided to make a cameo appearance at Casa Lorenz this summer…watching backlogged episodes of Eureka and Psych on the DVR with him, plus he turned me on to Arrested Development and now I’m hooked! So, we’ll probably blow out the rest of the existing episodes over the next few days…this “work” thing is really getting in the way of that! We’re watching those on Hulu…and he’s just informed me that there are new episodes of Psych on Hulu as well…my eyeballs are gonna be hurtin’. I might end up looking at the wrong camera in studio I’ll be so bleary!
Also made the trek to Montclair, NJ, Thursday to play in Yogi Berra’s annual charity golf tournament. I wish everybody could meet Yogi. He’s one of the greatest, most humble men I know…and very giving of his time, obviously. I had a great time moving chunks of real estate around that day…our team actually played well, finishing the scramble at 9-under…big thanks to Seafood Bobby, Joe, Peter and Ray for keeping me entertained and out of trouble (mostly). Awesome guys.
Then it was back to work today…in early to tape the latest edition of Forbes Sportsmoney, Presented by Fox Business Network (gotta pay some bills)…with Michael Ozanian, who’s a great, high-energy guy…definitely has a passion the biz side of sports and brings it to the table every time. Then pregame, game..rain delay…
Oh wait…10:47pm…I’m told we’ll be resuming play soon! Enjoy the rest of the game!
