I do believe that’s a new ‘S’

Signature Syracuse. You know I have to take a good look around the outside of NBT Bank Stadium during the annual Syracuse Mets garage sale morning. This time around, I believe they’ve already put up a new big ‘S’ on the right-field brick portion of the ballpark. I don’t recall it from the past season,…

Looks as if they can still play

Didn’t we just see a game? Of course I had to take a good look out at the playing field during the annual Syracuse Mets garage sale morning. The 2022 season offered many good times to our family. And we’re already looking forward to fine games to come in 2023.

Welcome to the club

Inside shopping. The Syracuse Mets took their annual garage sale indoors this year. Instead of placing the tables full of gear-and-such on the concourse, they set the sale up inside the Metropolitan Club. That set up a mad dash of fans to look and buy. Holy shirt! The real jerseys pulled in lots of people.…

Off season sale for the Syracuse Mets

Lining up in November. Syracuse Mets fans lined up way before the announced 9 a.m. opening for Saturday’s annual Syracuse Mets garage sale. It was moving day for daughter Elisabeth and fiance George. My dear wife Karen was getting ready to take the drive out to their apartment in Oneida. I was sworn in to…

Happy Thanksgiving from the foundation of our family

Have a great Thanksgiving, says us. A recent trip to the Syracuse Mets ball yard led me to take this photo of the brick laid down to show the solidarity held forever by my dear wife Karen, terrific daughter Elisabeth, fiancé George Three and I. Perfect for spirit of Thanksgiving, thought I. May you have…

Pancakes bigger than my head

Huge! My friend Edina told me at the library that she and husband Adem had discovered a fantastic new local place for breakfast. Plain looking out front. You gotta go to Just 1 Bite, she declared, on North Main in North Syracuse. Nice inside. My dear wife Karen and I liked the looks of it…

Congratulations, Elisabeth and George Three

Happy together. Closing happened. The big family came together over the weekend to move furniture and boxes. Many boxes. Elisabeth and George Three are now in their first house together. Fantastic yard, too. Lovely house, big grounds. And it’s only 1.1 miles from our place. We think it’s marvelous. Congratulations, terrific daughter and fantastic fiancé.…

Until next season

Stately in defeat. As we retreated from the JMA Wireless Dome, Syracuse thoroughly vanquished by Florida State by the demoralizing tune of 38-3 as a 6-0 start of the season has now slid down the hill to 6-4, I thought that yes, I know that my dear wife Karen and I will want to return…

Play under review

Decision maker. Never did I ever … Think that I’d have such a close up view of the referee watching a replay to decide whether or not a play stands or the original decision should be overrided because of what he sees on the video.
