Hey, sorry so late again. The three Yankees-Mets games knocked the heck out of me — traffic jams on the Whitestone every night after midnight, getting home between 1 and 2 a.m., getting to bed at 3.
So I slept in today. Also, as we get down to the final eight or so (or fewer) hockey games left in the season, we should probably start getting used to days with no posts, or minimal posts like this.
I would have been happy to see San Jose get in, but I’m ecstatic to watch Chicago in the final (love the uniforms, love the young legs, love Byfuglien=monster; love 20-Cent, plus I think their coach is one of the best in the biz and has been for years). If the Flys get in, there’s no doubt which team I want to win.
Got this from the Rangers this a.m. (or p.m.):
