MRB on Rough Riders ... Back to School … Quick hitters ... Kevin Harrison …

Amici:


Men Reading Books have some very kind words for Rough Riders ...



Wednesday it’s back to college (a.k.a. the joint). No Way (Potty Mouth) Mae and I will be heading north for a few days on campus before the ferry to Shutter Island, an environmental nightmare(too many miles off the New Hampshire coast to have showers every day, bathrooms in their rooms or caffeine in their coffee. We’ll be paroled on June 23, home in time for after dinner sfogliatelle. TK will be mute during our stay ... in the meantime here’s a few quick hitters and a concert some a’yous in the NY Metropolitan area should attend ...



Quick hitters ...




Scratch one more triple crown ... the heavy odds-on favorite, I’ll Have Another was scratched from the Belmont due to tendinitis. Good for the owners for not making the horse suffer ...

 

Tweet this, Mr. President ... for all the support unions give the Democratic Party and President Obama, not only did he ignore his 2007 campaign promise to put on some comfortable shoes and walk a picket line should collective bargaining ever be threatened, he disappeared two years ago when it actually happened and again last week when a recall election might have turned the union buster Scott Walker out on his ear ... Obama had this to tweet: It’s Election Day in Wisconsin tomorrow, and I’m standing by Tom Barrett. He’d make an outstanding governor. -bo — Barack Obama (@BarackObama) June 4, 2012 ... not even a mention about the unions.

Thanks for nothing, Mr. President. With friends like you ...



Heat-Celtics ... Listening to sports radio during my drives to and from work can get somewhat frustrating. Ever since the Celtics managed to take one from the Heat in Miami in game 5, the consensus was: If the Heat are going to depend on just two players (Wade and James), they’re going home early. Technically they were right, except it took one player (James), not two, to destroy the Celtics in Game 6. The same consensus has the Thunder rolling over the Heat ... as much as we want anybody but the Heat to win it all, the consensus is good enough reason to hedge those In Knucks We Trust Bucks, amici.
