Fairly busy few days coming up:
Tonight: Covering a charity event in New Rochelle featuring Bernie Williams and Paul O’Neill. Not quite sure what angle to take yet. Any ideas? With these events, you’re never sure how much time you’ll get to ask questions. Sweeny Murti is the host and I plan to heckle him.
Sunday: The annual BBWAA New York Chapter dinner is in Manhattan. A-Rod, Joba, Joe Girardi and a cast of thousands. I’ve been assigned to guard the door at the pre-banquet reception to keep autograph-seekers, steroids dealers and other undesirables out. I’ll be taking bribes.
Monday: Headed over to the Yogi Berra Museum at Montclair State to participate in a conference sponsored by Penn State’s John Curley Center For Sports Journalism. I’m on a panel with the likes of Dave Anderson, Tom Verducci and Jack Curry. I assume I’ll be getting the coffee.
Tuesday: Working on a story at Yankee Stadium for our season preview section. Yes, the season preview section.
