Tuesday Notes...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Tuesday, September 13, 2011

So, how was your weekend?

Mine was not bad as far as the days leading up to the 11th is concerned. I always feel off for the 4-5 days prior to the 11th.

This year was a tad more nerve-wracking, as Nancy was scheduled to fly to Dallas on Sunday.

Took her to the airport around 11:30am and as expected, there was a security checkpoint as soon as you hit the airport grounds.

We were one of the cars selected to be pulled over and have them inspect the outside of the car by using one of those mirrors on wheels and also bomb-sniffing dogs.

Of course we passed, and when I dropped Nancy at the terminal, there were two police officers and a dog at each entry point.

Nancy did say that inside the terminal, it was quiet and uneventful.

While waiting for the dog to circle the car, I chatted with one of the security personnel who said "This is the safest day of the year to fly, there are over 50,000 additional people on duty today throughout the USA."

Made me feel a bit better and after thinking about it, he is probably correct.

I do love the memorial they opened at Ground Zero. It might even give me the inventive to travel to the spot so many were murdered when we visit next summer.

Watched the closing episode of Entourage and will miss this program. It was a fun watch with cool characters...now for the movie!

Tony Romo seems to fall down if a defensive player breathes on him. there were three times in the game on Sunday where he fell without really being hit.

Major League Baseball made a huge PR mistake not allowing the NY Mets to wear hats from the NYPD, NYFD and NY/NJPA at the Sunday game. the league told them they would face a heavy fine if they did so. Wish the team had balls and had worn them and let MLB fine them...can you say PR disaster?

If you did not catch the show last night, hope you check it out in the podcast.

  2. Hell, if those extra security guys got a measly 100 bucks a day, that's 5 million so everybody can know on 9/11 they are safe..er than if they fly on 9/12.
    I won't buy that Vinny. That's a lot of full year school teacher jobs.

     
  3. MLB totally blew 9/11. The Yankees were on the road, the Nationals held a really small ceremony that nobody covered and then HatGate! Seriously, what a total freaking mess MLB is. Also, according to R.A. Dickey, MLB sent someone into the Mets dugout to swipe all the illegal hats.

    MLB = Commies.

  4. MLB didn't do any 9/11 tributes? Weird. The NFL seemed to rock it coast to coast, and EVERY coach was wearing NYPD caps it seemed.

    I truly believe Sunday was the safest day to travel. It's the other days about which I worry more.

     
  5. Travis Cody Says:
  6. I much prefer the small tributes because any agenda behind them isn't as evident. 100 yard flags, caps, shoes, gloves, towels...all of that somehow seems a bit pretentious to me.

     
  7. Tony Romo, rhymes with.......

     
  8. Dianne Says:
  9. the opening ceremony of the Jets game was well done I thought
    and of course I'm thrilled with the outcome

    didn't know that about the MLB
    that's absurd
    I wish the Yankees and Mets would have worn the hats anyway

    glad Nancy's trip was uneventful
