Wanda Sykes Is Right

So I'm approaching my stop on the Bx39 bus and I notice an older woman moving towards the section of the bus where I was seated. I motioned to her so she could take my seat and she came in my direction. I got up to let her sit down. As she got near the seat, I see a flash behind me and this little old dude who was sitting behind me snuck into the solo seat that I was previously occupying. I was stunned. What a slick little fucker. The woman ended up taking up his old seat next to another guy.

I tell the old dude that I got up to give her my seat and not him and at first he ignored me. Since he looked like my old departed grandmother, I knew he was Dominican and I spoke to him in Spanish. Again I tell him that the seat was for her not him and he answers me in gibberish and waves me off. 

I could barely understand him but I got the gist from his body language that since I was getting off it didn't matter who took the seat. The woman just shook her head and I told her in Spanish that I guess all the gentlemen sank with the Titanic to which she chuckled. The old dude must have taken exception with my statement and said "Fuck You" to me in clear old English. 

I looked at him and laughed. I told him "Tu si tienes cojones" (You surely have some balls) as I walked off the back of the bus. Guess Wanda Sykes is right: OLD PEOPLE DON'T GIVE A FUCK.

Turn out the lights. The party's over

As the final innings tick on by on Game 6 of the Yankees-Rangers game, I couldn't help but notice that it has gotten colder outside. Man is winter going to suck until February 15 when pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training. The only thing I have to say to old man winter is: Go Fuck Yourself!!!!

Baseball Ends and the Weather Sucks

So the regular season of the 2010 Baseball season has come to an end and is just me or has the weather tanked as the season came closer to an end? LOL. Yes folks, the season ends, the trees lose their leaves, the days grow shorter and colder and the night longer and darker with the end of Baseball. Other sports step in to fill the void but to no avail. We ardent fans start to count down the days on our calendar to events known as Truck Day and the reporting of Pitchers and Catchers to replace what we are missing during the cold winter months: Baseball. Goodbye warmth. Hello Cold. Brrrr. LOL.
