"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Something Wicked This Way Comes

It’s been raining in New York for at least a month. Weeks and weeks of rain. Last night we had a sunset to show for it. It was gnarled and fantastic, dramatic and beautiful. It was also a hex on the Mets as they made three errors in one inning. 

Here’s a great shot from the New York Times.


It was sunny this morning but the clouds are moving fast and the weatherman says 30% chance of rain. 

Hopefully we’ll get another purtee sunset.

Times knocked it out the box. I would have given ANYTHING to have been there and taken pictures with a good camera.

To me it looks like one of the Baseball Gods' tongues ensuring the Mets get their proper lickin'...

Awesome photo ...

and speaking of awesome .... Pujols has gone deep twice more today .... currently at 28,74,.328 and 9 SBs for the year, with really no protection in that lineup.

[6] i mentioned earlier about his 1st shot. that's just sick!

now, how old do you really think he is?

and...wasn't he linked the 'dirty' trainer in the midwest, from Kansas City, the other year?
