NEW YORK, NY – The other night here in New York the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted its annual “Met Gala” for all manner of glitterati and starf**kers who like to dress up like imbeciles and have their pictures taken by a rabid bunch of camera-wielding monkeys.

HAPPY NOTE: Regular Tuesday Titan, Big Ben Whitney is all jelly today as he and the Missus welcomed twin baby girls on Sunday night.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – This just in: apparently there is no wifi in Ft. Lauderdale! At least that’s what Cheesy Bruin is using as his excuse for not being front and centre (Canadian spelling for Angry Ward) today.

ENGLISHTOWN, NJ – I’m not really sure of the marketing principle behind booking Rock ‘n Roll has-beens for post-game concerts, but that’s what happened at CitiField AFTER the AAA Padres vs Mets debacle.

FLUSHING M*A*S*H* UNIT – As the Avalanche of Awful swallows the Amazin’ Mets, we are staving off using this platform to condemn the insanity of having kids – particularly pitchers – commit to playing one sport, year-round from the time they are all of ten years on the planet.

Plant City, FL—On the heels of yesterday’s brilliant piece by colleague and Words With Friends tormentor, West Coast Craig, I will try to practice my juris prudently here today. After all, Elmhurst’s Nino Scalia would have wanted it that way. And in the words of Cecil the Turtle, aka Sen. Mitch McConnell, “Let them eat GMO […]
