This Site Is Under Cool Construction

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

In my effort to breathe life into this blog and to make it a whole lot more fun (yes, it's possible) to visit - this site will be going under construction for a few weeks. We will soon have comical daily recaps, onion-related blog posts, REAL (shocker!) news bits, and something for everyone (even, gulp, Yankees fans).

Of course, Eli won't be the only one working (you call this work?) here, so be on the lookout for some fresh new talent (Disclaimer: They may be in their 40's) in the near future.

If you are interested, unemployed, and semi or even quarterly-funny, please e-mail me at

Not everyone who emails me will get to work here, but the ones who make me smile & think - are instantly in the 2nd round of invisible rounds.

Good luck and Let's Go You-Know-Whos.

3 Reasons Why Jon Niese May Very Well Have A Poor Performance Tonight

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

1) The Mets tweeted today that "Jonathon Niese was named Mets Sharp Pitcher of the Month for June. He went 4-0 last month. He will be honored pre-game." Niese may very well be complacent knowing he has achieved a milestone; not that "Mets Sharp Pitcher of the Month" is something to brag about, but the fact he's honored pre-game + being a young pitcher = I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't as "Sharp" as he should or could be.

2) It's 100 degrees out there. Yes, Johan not only survived in the heat, but thrived in it, while Niese has gone 4-0 in a warm June, but being the same age as Niese and knowing the heat has gone to my head (heck, why else would I be writing this absurd post?) I can imagine it will go to his.

3) Dan Iassogna, the 2nd base umpire from Monday's Mets/Reds game who called Rolen's "hit-by-pitch," will be tonight's home plate umpire. Perhaps a smaller strike zone will help him leave an even great impression on the Citi faithful...?

...there ya have it... 3 far-fetched-but-slightly-possible reasons Niese may just have a poor performance tonight...
