“No parachutes yet. Can’t be skydivers… I can’t tell just yet what they are, but – Oh my God, Johnny, they’re turkeys!! Johnny, can you get this? Oh, they’re plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenberg tragedy has there been anything like this!’’—Les Nessman
One of the classic segments in one of the underrated sit-coms of all time. Followed, of course, by, “As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.’’
Anyway, greetings from Cincinnati, where the Ohio River is a lovely shade of coffee brown. Another 95-degree day. Modern park. I sure hope they have AC in this place.
The Mets? What’s going on with them?
Jose Reyes is expected to play. … Will speak to David Wright and expect him to refute all this revival stuff. Of course, if there are any snakes in his locker, that would be a bad sign. … Pedro could throw in the bullpen today, but not too long ago I saw a Met hunched over in the locker room. … There will be a lot of trade rumors over the next two weeks. Omar Minaya will talk to everybody, but don’t count on any “name’’ pitcher coming here.
Will check in later … have a good day and stay cool.
