Last Night, I Finally Did Something Right....

This may be my shortest post ever;

Last night, I turned on the TV to see it was a 2-2 game.  I said to myself, " we only score 2, so this game is over."

I changed channels to watch, "Naked and Afraid."  Two assholes attempting to survive in the jungles of Guatemala for 21 days.  No clothes, no food, no water.  Usually, with a machete and a map.

A man & a woman, by the way.  Sort of.  Thank 6th Avenue that clothes were invented.

I concluded that watching people get eaten by bugs and vomiting, is better than watching the Yankees try to survive a 2-2 tie.

No more Yankee idiocy.

One of your local TV stations may have brought Buzzr in as a second or third channel on cable. It shows old game shows. Set you DVR to capture overnight Match Game, Family Feud, What's My Line, and other shows. They're great time capsules and can prove a good alternative to reality TV crapola. And Yankees crapola.

Since we've rolled back the clock to 1966, you could always do what they did then and go out to a bar.

Not much downside to that.

I went to the Bowery Ballroom to hear Julien Baker sing. Unlike Severino, she's a young phenomenon.

Even much better, listened to the Glenn Miller Chesterfield Show from June 25, 1942 on the NBC Blue Network. Always can find something on line better than the Yankees and Joe Girardi.

I smoked Chesterfields for a few months way back when. Not a bad cigarette.

Unfortunately, you can't smoke one in the Bowery Ballroom, which is about the only downside of going there. Great place, Joe.

Hey, John M, I'm going to see the Staves [not the Slaves] in June; maybe this time I won't be the oldest guy there, like I usually am.

I wish I could spend much of every day in a bar.

If they sold seats in great bars, as they do at the stadium, I would buy one.

I suspect it would cost a lot less than what the Yankees charge.
