Talking about the Mets starting rotation:
A couple of non-baseball notes here:
– I didn’t actually call in from a payphone. I thought it’d be funny if my picture was me calling in from a payphone, mostly because . . well, who still uses a payphone. The only problem — because no one uses payphones — it’s pretty difficult to find them anymore. Thank you to a random New Haven Stop and Shop for still having one outside, and thanks to Susannah for owning a camera and snapping the picture.
– As you might have noticed, much like Omar Minaya, my choice for conversation filler is “you know.” Bonus points for anyone who counts how many times I say those two words.
– I need a haircut. As Ted Berg kindly pointed out via email this morning, I’m rolling with Kevin Jonas hair at the moment. I think Nick Evans (Nick), Lucas Duda (Joe) and I could start a rocking Jonas Brother cover band.
