I’d love to tell you the reason for the blog’s occasional slip into oblivion is because I spill beer on my computer keyboard and the whole thing shorts as a result. The problem is I am neither that clumsy (although close) nor that influential (not close at all).
Besides, for all I know, The Journal News and Lohud.com have strict rules about Drinking While Blogging (DWB). Fortunately there are no such rules for your state of mind while reading a blog, which may explain why I’ve fooled some of you into thinking I know what I’m talking about.
What can I tell you—it’s frustrating. On Sunday, in fact, I left for the Garden early much to the chagrin of my wife for the simple purpose of posting a blog update on Martin Straka and Ryan Callahan, only to discover that the blog had crashed. Between that and a pre-game buffet in which the eggs were an alarming shade of green (Sam I am, but I do not like green eggs and ham), it was a disappointing day.
By the way, Straka played and Callahan did not. In other news, Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter in the 1980 presidential election, and word is M*A*S*H is going off the air.
In many ways, this blog has resembled the Rangers so far: occasional moments of competence interspersed with head-scratching, toe-stubbing moments of frustration. My hope is to get better. My educated (as far as you know) guess is the Rangers will as well.
Meanwhile, a few belated thoughts:
But what the heck do I know? I’m just a guy who’s been staring at an error message on his computer for the past two days…
