May 24, 2016 No Comments by

By Gary S. 2011 opening day game at Yankees Stadium was a cold early spring day with a very little drizzle turning to light hale, nothing a fan couldn’t prepare for, but at least 10 percent of the seats were empty when the game started and only a third were filled for Mo’s last pitch. […]

Rock of Ages – Glee meets Metal

May 13, 2016 No Comments

What a great surprise this show was. It is completely like Glee meets Metal, or the other way around. The way they use the metal songs of the 80’s, particularly, the ballads was genius.

May 01, 2016 No Comments

A great fall afternoon to watch CC hold Texas Rangers to only 2 runs with 11 hits and stranding 7 runners on the bases over 6 innings. 10 strike outs, no walks by the Yankees staff and the Sandman come in to close it out in the top of 9th. Now for game 6, time […]
