Ruh-roh.

In the words of Alphonso, in response to the original posting of this exact same list, "Is this what we should expect, on a daily basis, when the Yankees are out of contention by April?"

In the online marketing world, using previously used material is not a problem. It's called 'repurposing content', and every expert-like person in the field will not only say it's OK, they encourage it strongly.

Me, I thank Duque for the shout-out as we hunkered down for the record blizzard that wasn't. Kind of like The Christmas That Almost Wasn't, because of a man named Scrooge. In New York City lore, this is not as big a miss as The Hurricane That Definitely Wasn't, but it's sorta close.
