Post Flapalooza, What’s Left?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on July 23, 2016

I didn’t think this trip through the AL world would go very well and so far it’s teetering on the edge of complete failure. If not for the great vibes created from the Flap Nation check ins, we would be enraged. But, seeing the pics of Blade, Chi, Loo, MacDog, GH, San Dawg and sons has kinda dulled the edges of our swords.

Now that the crew is breaking up and wandering back to where they came from, I am starting to get my “slow burn” back on.

This is a HUGE start for Smarge. He’s been average since his dominant start in Tampa. The deck will be stacked against us again today with what will likely be the most underwhelming of line ups. The weather will be decidedly un-AT&Tish. And it’ll still feel like an early start for our boys.

But if Smarge can come out smokin’ I’d feel ok about this game. We’ll see…..


So I wrote what I wrote about Smarge and I just read that Cueto is pitching today. Not sure when that happened.

another pic of The Gang. When I look at this pic I start hearing the beginning sound track of Reservoir Dogs in my head….

    Trev and I are still here in NYC and will be at the game tomorrow. We went to a Japanese version of the musical Chicago tonight (hey, the tickets were half price and Lincoln Center is a block away… and luckily we were entertained by the show) and we are in the midst of serious talks about going to Guns n Roses/Lenny Kravitz tomorrow at Met Life Stadium AFTER the Giants game. Trev is actually the driving force on that crazy idea. Glad the Giants broke the ice today, but we were bummed to hear we are not getting Cueto tomorrow after all.
    Me cast as Mr. Blonde? Might not be a bad call as I am somewhat obsessed with that character and the Ramsay Bolton/Theon Greyjoy story line on GOT.
    Took a bike ride all around Central Park today. Many of you may know this already, but there is a dedicated bike path that goes in one direction all around the park, and it’s pretty cool–a leisurely pace completes a lap in about 30-40 minutes. I stopped for about 20 minutes to check out a band that was busking in the middle of the park, playing some Hardly/Strictly type stuff that I think Zum and my brother would both love. Worked for me too, as I am fairly enthralled watching anybody sing and play a stringed instrument up close. 3 dudes playing multiple instruments…fiddle, guitar, banjo, something that maybe looked like a mandolin. Name of the band is “The Good Morning Nags.” I guess they play all around NYC. I bought their CD for $10 to give to my brother.
    Trev and I also did the Freedom Tower observation deck earlier, which is pretty damn awesome.
    Fine dining? Not exactly. We did have some swank breakfast focaccia at my favorite local Italian place this morning, but then we were in a time crunch, so it was hot dogs at Gray’s Papaya for dinner, and yeah, we hit our favorite .99-a-slice pizza place after Chicago. It ain’t the best pizza we’ve ever had, but it’s far from the worst and it’s a great people watching spot right on Broadway near the theatre where Colbert does his show.

      Very cool!
      I checked out some of the band’s videos on YouTube. That’s music that’s right in my wheelhouse. They would be terrific at Hardly Strictly or the Kate Wolf festival. I hope they can make a west coast trip sometime.
