Let's see, the first entry of my first-ever blog. I wonder if anyone will even read it. How do people find out about other people's blogs?
So I'm in Iraq, working night shift in the Georgian Army brigade headquarters. I'm an American liaison to allied troops. Pretty frustrating job. The only good troops in Iraq are those belonging to US, Britain, and Australia.
Yesterday was a good day to be a New Yorker. The Rangers won and are now just one game away from dumping the Devils. John Maine pitched a solid game and the Mets beat a team that they are supposed to beat. The Yankees survived what was probably the most brutal game played in the MLB so far this season. And the Knicks and Nets have finally been put out of their misery.
By the way, can't wait till the Nets move to Brooklyn. If Jay-Z actually pulls it off, he'll be my favorite person for at least a year. Brooklyn Nets. That sounds cool.
Anyway, with all this going on in good old NYC, I can't wait to get out of Iraq and be back home. The final year of Shea Stadium. That place is a dump, but I'm sure I'll still get all sentimental when I take my 12-year old nephew there for the last time. And I haven't been to the Garden in years. I will definitely go next fall, when the hockey season re-starts.
Well, till next time.
