The oldies enthuiasts who read this blog should check out Breakfast with the Beatles at http://www.bwtb.net . Today Dennis Mitchell is featuring Beatles songs less than 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Today was the penultimate opening day at Shea Stadium. I had never attended an opener at Shea, but in 1983 I had jury duty which let out early on spening day. That was the season that Tom Seaver returned to the Mets. While I was waiting on the ticket line the game sold out. Anyway, I was able to listen to the game on radio in my office from 1 PM to 2 PM while I was summarizing the transcript of the undergraduate focus group. Pagebyrner, are you still reading? Do you do focus groups. Anyway from 2PM - 4 PM I was at the reference desk and was able to monitor the game from http://espn.com between reference transactions. Anyway, I wasn't caught by Mr. Spreadsheet or Scatterbrain. When I returned to my office at 4 PM the Mets had taken the lead 6-5 in the bottom of the 8th. When I got home I found out the Mets broke it open and won 11 -5.

We knew that the Mets could not win all their games this season. They lost to the Atlanta Braves 5-3 with Tom Glavine getting the loss. However in the Bronx the Yankees came from behind to beat the Baltimore Orioles 10-7. Jason Giambi hit a home run in the 8th to bring the Yankees to a one run deficit. In the bottom of the ninth with 2 outs Alex Rodriguez hit a grand slam home run to win the game. That is the type of performance that is expected from a man with a 252 million dollar contract. Din, the only time I root against the Yankees is when they play against the Met.
Saturday Night Oldies was only on from 6 -7 PM since WABC was carrying the Ranger game. I just went to http://www.reelradio.com which is a collection of old radio shows and am listening to a Washington, DC station from 1973.
We saw the movie Blades of Glory at the local multiplex. Another dumb movie.

Tonight the 2007 baseball season starts for the Mets in St. Louis. It is a long season and you never know what could happen. There are many questions about the pitching staff this season especially with Pedro Martinez out until August. I bought a 7 pack of tickets for the family plus two other games.
Today we saw the movie Reign over Me at the local multiplex.
