You appreciate spending time with your family and getting a chance to relax far more than getting gifts. Although the gifts are fun.
I did well. Belichick Patriots hoodie, iTunes gift card, Barnes & Noble gift cards, Seasons 7, 8 and 9 of Seinfeld and assorted other stuff. The best gift was a framed photo of my niece Leah and my nephew Jason. My wise-ass sister Kristen also got me my own set of Play-Doh because I like playing with Jason’s Play-Doh so much.
It would be great to be a kid in 2007. Jason got these dinosaurs that roar and walk around, a drum and assorted trains from the Thomas The Tank Engine collection. The Island of Sodor will soon be built in his playroom. Leah got her own digital camera and her first iPod along and an air-hockey table.
I’m on vacation this week (as are most of the beat writers, GMs and team execs). I’m hoping to catch No Country For Old Men and Walk Hard and spend more time with the kids.
If you’re back at work today, sorry I can’t waste more of your time. I’ll check back in later this week with my Yankee predictions for 2008.
There are reports in the New York and Boston media that Giants fans are selling their seats for Sunday’s game against the mighty Patriots to try and make a quick buck. For shame, you greedy fans of the G-Men.
Yes, it might be cold. But so what? Go see what your team has to offer and root for them to topple the Pats. It won’t happen but it could. Nice message for the playoff-bound Giants, a stadium full of Patriots fans cheering on Tom Brady.
