Sunday breakfast links

We're half-passed January, which in upstate NY is like being midway through a keg of Genny Cream Ale: Your head's spinning, but the serious shit is still to come. Nothing - absolutely zilch - is happening in the Yankiverse, or for that matter, anywhere. The NFL playoffs are a dead zone, not one game worth watching. Yesterday, I saw LaLa Land, winner of the prestigious (think Pia Zadora) Golden Globes. If that's the best movie of 2016, Nick Rumbelow was our Cy Young starter. Wednesday, the Hall of Fame will announce a new class of non-Yankees, fueling our rage against the cosmos. In the meantime, the cosmos is winning, and here are links to the existential nothingness that haunts each waking moment...

Matt Holliday talks with NY Post, blames hia crapola 2016 on hips, ground balls, price of tomatoes, etc. “It was weird I didn’t walk as much. I think it could’ve been some slight mechanical flaws that were not allowing me to not recognize pitches as well. That would be my first inclination as to what the problem was. But could it have been a year where they just threw me more strikes? I don’t know.” Huh. Who's running the Post these days, Jerry Hall?

A Fox Sports fan ranter calls Joe Girardi "Master Juggler." "Will he be remembered as the bridge that enabled the past to meet the present, with ease and solidarity? Or will this season descend into chaos with veterans crying about reduced playing time, with the younger guys saying the same because they’re not being given a chance to prove their value to the team?" Jeeze, those are good questions. It will soon up to the Master Juggler to provide answers.

Daily News ranks its "Top 10 Most Intriguing Mets, Yankees." Noah Sydergaard is No. 1. Well, when there's nothing else to write, do a list! How about the Top 10 Most Earnest Mets, Yankees? (Brett Gardner, No. 1) The Top 10 Most Unearthly... (Aaron Judge?) The Top 10 Wacky... (Matt Harvey?) Jeezus H. Montero. The Top 10 Lists about Mets, Yankees. 

After 146 years, the Greatest Show on Earth is closing. Wow. Now this is news. It looks like I won't run away and join the circus after all. Barnum & Bailey, gone? I blame all those clowns across America who spent last Halloween trying to lure kids into the woods. You can't be doing that, and still make families happy with balloon animals. 

Well, back to the Genny Cream. Up here, we call it "the Green Death." I think I'm gonna need another keg.

Welcom to the Ides of January Malaise, Duque!! This is precisely why I said last week I wish I could just hibernate until April - - or until the end of the Rump Administration - - whichever comes first....

Now, let's see, did I ever list for ya' my top ten Yankee games of fifty years?? No?? Well, shuckin's, must have been an oversight.

Gotta' run, and see if I can put MY hands on some of that there Green Gunk (hope it tastes better than Orange Goop)....

I WILL be drinking something tonight, if Rodgers & the Pack don't manage to come through against Dull-ass' Cow-Punks - - guaranteed - - hiccups and all. LB (no J)

Barnum & Bailey had to close up shop because they couldn't compete with the coming circus in Washington. At the very least, this will be the best reality show in history.

Wooooooooo-Hoooooooooo!!!!! Go Pack! Run the table! Zow, what a game - - no more complaining about dull playoff games for this week. I thought this one might be going to give me a cardiac emergency, the last 3 minutes. All's well that ends well, they say. On to the Falcons! LB (No J)

First things first, Duque - - I'm not writing off Ryan & those pesky Boids, just yet - - they destroyed the Seahawks on Sat....but, yeah, can't wait to get our hands around Whiny Brady's throat, and give Bil Bellicheat some more heartburn. Go Pack! LB (No J)

I think Green Bay has drained the tank. Too many injuries to beat a healthy, rabid Falcons team. And Ryan is likely the league MVP.

But I will love the Pack forever for making Jerry Jones have to cancel his invitation to Trump, to watch the Super Bowl in the Cowboy suite.

And, maybe, a few of those cowboys will become free agents this year, or get injured next year. I mean, they had a perfect season, and didn't win.

Not to mention that our sorry excuse for a NFC team ( the Giants ) was the only other team to beat them.

And we did so two times.

I agree that if you plan to stay with a cheater don't try to find any information. However, in my case I needed it in my state in order to file for a divorce and come out of the relationship. You can't just say I think courts want proof or you end up spending a lot of time and money to fight it out! Finding out was hard, but I was relieved that I wasn't crazy and it's making my divorce go a lot smoother. He would never confess; therefore, I did the best thing for me...find out, no doubt, move on!!!contact hotcyberlord@gmail.com.. or text his phone +15402277725 he's a professional and will surely help you out,tell him from Ninah
