SAG HARBOR, NY – It takes waking but one morning in this place to understand why Keith Hernadez lives out here. It’s just a simpler, nicer life. If you’ve never been here, you should come. Hey, maybe our next Trivia Game will win the winner and a pal a weekend in this old whaling town on the bay.

Speaking of Keith Hernadez, it’s easy to watch the current Interleague Play and get the itch to go to a game, as Rays/Marlins, Angels/Dodgers, Cubs/Chisox, Red Sox/Mets and Yankees/Phillies are are all potential matchups in the 2009 World Series. And who better than Hernandez to remind us of that great Interleague series of ’86, when Calvin Shiraldi gave the Mets their last World Series title and Red Sox fans wrongly ruined Bill Buckner’s life. If you wondering how or why we say that, click this. Yet we digress! Let’s get two of you to the second round of these games, beginning June 12th! After all, it is Saturday and Saturdays on can is TRIVIA CONTEST DAY! WOW!

TRIVIA TICKET DAY! You can easily win two tickets to an Interleague Game with $50 W.A.M. (Walkin’ Around Money)! It’s easy. In fact, it’s as easy as stealing a base against the S.F. Giants!
