I’d Like to Wish a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to One and All!

I’d like to wish a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to one and all. Just to get you in the spirit here are a few songs from the Dropkick Murphys and the Wolfe Tones. I remember the Wolfe Tones playing in my backyard 40 years ago! I kicked my Gaelic football around the yard with Derek Warfield. When they would play in Brooklyn they’d call my house looking for my Dad so they could come over and hang out for a few hours to get “tuned up” for the concert. One year my Brother was playing the Wolfe Tones on his boombox and one of the members of the band called on the phone, looking for my Dad! My Wife and I are looking forward to the parade today in NYC with Cousins. We’re then heading to our other Cousin’s house for his party this afternoon. Good times will be had by all. I can’t wait to see my Dad’s old band, the NYPD Emerald Society Pipes & Drums and my high school band as well.

Back on Track with My Blog

I’ll be back on with postings today. I have a lot to post regarding the Giants, Rangers and Mets.

Heading to Brooklyn to See FHL Hockey as Aviators Host the Outlaws

My Wife and I are heading to Brooklyn to meet friends for dinner in our old stomping grounds before heading to the first game of a home-and-home between the Brooklyn Aviators and New Jersey Outlaws. The Outlaws are in first place in the Federal Hockey League (Class A) with a record of 39-3-1-7, 124 points while the Aviators’ are in fourth place with a record of 23-1-5-19, 76 points. We watched the Aviators hold on for a 3-2 victory last month at Wayne, NJ and will be heading there as well tomorrow for the final game of the year. It will be tough today as our friends are huge New Jersey Devil and Trenton Titan fans, so they’ll be pulling for the Outlaws, the minor league team to the Titans. Let’s Go Aviators!
