Greetings from Gate 14

Here we are at the new Jet Blue terminal at JFK. It’s a hassle to get to JFK, but this terminal is pretty sweet. Lots of space, plenty of food and drink options and these handy laptop desks (with power!) all over the place.

There’s also something called the WFAN store. I checked it out hoping to see all Chris Russo merchandise for sale at half price. But, alas, the store only sold t-shirts and caps from the assorted NY teams. There wasn’t that much WFAN stuff.

I wanted to pick up a few things but that rat Sweeny Murti refused to give me the employee discount.

There should be a real WFAN store. Have the best callers sit there and endlessly dial the shows. There could be recordings of Mike Francesa’s best bits (“One prominent NFL executive, I’m not going to say who, loves the Dolphins in this game. Loves them. Huge game.”). Steve Somers in a dunk tank. The possibilities are endless.

Forgot to mention this last night. But Ian Kennedy had another strong start in Puerto Rico. He lost a 1-0 game, allowing one run on five hits with two walks and six strikeouts in six innings.

Meanwhile, the back cover of The Daily News pretty much sums of the life of Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez. Everything he does, no matter how well-intentioned, backfires on him.

A-Rod could cure cancer and the headline would be, “A-Rod declines to cure other diseases.”

As my buddy Jim the Yankees fan said, it’s nice that his mom wants him to play for the Dominicans. Maybe she should want him to drive in a few runs in the playoffs.

Catch you from Las Vegas.
