A-Rod’s opening statement today

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Feb 17, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

(This is via the AP)

“First, bear with me. I’m a little nervous, or a lot nervous, so bear with me a little bit.

“Let me start by thanking the Yankees, my teammates, our fans, for your support over the last couple weeks. The fact that you’re sitting with me here today means the world to me. The last couple weeks have been difficult and emotional.

“On the one hand, it’s extremely tough to admit mistakes. But on the other hand, it feels great to be moving forward. I know that I’m in a position where I have to earn my trust back, and over time I am confident that at the end of my career, people will see this for what it is: a stupid mistake and a lesson learned for a guy with a lot of baseball to play.

“Last Monday, I began the first step in the process of earning back trust when I sat down with Peter Gammons. I did so to accomplish two things: to tell the truth and to apologize to my teammates and baseball fans everywhere. Now the next step is to address the media about what I took and where it came from.

“On reflection, here’s what I remember:

“As I discussed with Peter Gammons, in the year 2001, 2002 and 2003, I experimented with a banned substance that eventually triggered a positive test. In September 2004, I had a meeting with Gene Orza. During that meeting, he explained to me that I had been among the players from which people might conclude that I tested positive. That was as specific as Gene could be, because Gene stated to me that there were a number of players on that list who might not have actually tested positive.

“I think it is important to know that the tests that were taken in 2003 were requested and voted by players to determine the extent of the drug problem in Major League Baseball.

“Going back to 2001, my cousin started telling me about a substance that you can purchase over-the-counter in DR know as, in the streets, known as boli or bole. It was his understanding that it would give me a dramatic energy boost and otherwise harmless. My cousin and I, one more ignorant than the other, decided it was a good idea to start taking it. My cousin would administer it to me, but neither of us knew how to use it problem, providing (sic) just how ignorant we both were.

“It was at this point, we decided to take it twice a month for about six months during the 2001, 2002 and 2003 season. We consulted no one and had no good reason to base that decision. It was pretty evident that we didn’t know what we’re doing.

“We did everything we could to keep it between us, and my cousin did not provide any other players with it. I stopped taking it in 2003 and haven’t take it since.

“I stopped taking the substance for several reasons. In 2003, I had a serious neck injury and it scared me half to death. I was scared for my career and truly my career after baseball—my life after baseball. Secondly, after our voluntary test, all the players voted for a major league drug policy. At that time, it became evident to me how serious this all was, and I decided to stop then.

“Since that time, I’ve been tested regularly. I’ve taken urine tests consistent with Major League Baseball and blood tests for the World Baseball Classic. Before I walked here today, I took a test as part of my physical, and I’ll take another blood test next week for the Classic.

“In the days ahead, I know that a lot of people are going to debate my past with various opinions. People are going to talk about my future as though it’s already been determined, however, I realize that these opinions are out of my control. What is within my control is going out and doing the job that I am blessed to do. Spring training represents a new start for me and a chance to win a championship, two opportunities I’m very excited about.

“It isn’t lost on me the good fortune I’ve received from playing baseball. When I entered the pros, I was a young kid—the major leagues. I was 18 years old, right out of high school. I thought I knew everything, and I clearly didn’t. Like everyone else, I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life. The only way I know how to handle them is to learn from them and move forward. One thing I know is for sure that baseball is a lot bigger than Alex Rodriguez.

“And to my teammates— (38-second pause)

“Thank you.”

    The best part of this farce today was his little Kabbalah bracelet. I’m sure the little red string really helped him today. hahaha.

  2. Whitey Fraud February 17th, 2009 at 6:40 pm

    I was crying along with him.

    But not for the same reason.

  3. Phil February 17th, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    ARod is taking one for the team.

  4. Ham Fighters February 17th, 2009 at 6:42 pm

    i really believe that this was as close to the truth as alex could come .

  5. Jeremy February 17th, 2009 at 6:43 pm

    AG,

    Would you have written the same thing if he had worn a pendant with a crucifix or Star of David on it?

    Kabbalah is not for me either, but let the guy believe what he wants.

  6. Phl Parcells February 17th, 2009 at 6:45 pm

    Peter,

    what question did you want ask?

  7. Bronx Jeers February 17th, 2009 at 6:48 pm

    Studies have shown that 38 seconds is the most sympathy provoking pause interval.

  8. S.A.-The 2009 MLB season is almost here February 17th, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    Who cares about his Kabbalah bracelet? He could have had hello kitty stickers stuck all over his face and I would not care.

  9. RGR February 17th, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    People are making way to big a deal with the “38 seconds”

    So what? Lets see anyone who is critical of the “38 seconds” go under the microscope the way he did and be calm and collected the entire time

  10. trisha - Want the truth? Read Canseco's book. February 17th, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    “Studies have shown that 38 seconds is the most sympathy provoking pause interval.”

    :lol:

  11. AG February 17th, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    Jeremy, you’re right, it is a double standard (although I think all religion is BS, so…), but I find the thought of Alex and Madonna going to Kabbalah classes together hilarious. Along with the mental image of Alex tying the little red string *just so* on his wrist. I’m sorry. I can’t help it.

    On another note, I want to know what it would be so hard for him to just say, “Hey guys, I did steroids because I wanted an edge, and now I don’t do them anymore.” But no, he didn’t think it was a steroid at the time, etc. etc. Whatever! I’ve been over this guy since 2004.

  12. Tarheelyank February 17th, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    38 seconds—- hmm

    A-HA
    Arod subliminally letting us know Curt Schilling is really his secret cousin

    The camera jockies had kicked out the mic plug. That’s the reason that the Yanks PC head stopped it and told the jockies to get out of the aisle. It’s what caused to loud buzz in the mic.

  14. PittsburghYankeeFan February 17th, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    OK.

    This is going to be a two parter. Part One is for the sports media.

    Here is my proposal.

    Why don’t we investigate the ethics of every sports reporter who is eligible for the BBWA? In other words, why don’t we investigate them for plagarism? In this day and age, it should be pretty easy to determine if someone was plagarizing another reporter, lifting someone’s idea off of a blog, or off of the internet without attribution. Simply do a search of their colummns on the web, and use widely available software to compare it to previously published works. If their work is too similar to prior stories, confront the reporter and ask where they got their ideas.

    I suspect, given some of the glaring examples over the past few years in and out of the sports media world, that this problem is rampant. The very ethics and believability of the sports press may be at stake. So, I have a compromise. Let every baseball reporter admit anonymously when and where they stole another’s idea, so we get an idea of how rampant the problem is, so we can take steps to fix the problem.

    If the names of the plagarizing reporters become public due to some other reporter trying to get at the names for “journalistic” reasons, let the names out, no matter how much damage they cause, since the public has a right to know, doesn’t it?

    Maybe some reporter will, man (or woman) up admit it once their name is exposed on the list. Say a big guy in your field, like Buster Olney. But we’ll never believe anything that they say, will we, since “once a liar, always a liar,” right? No more BBWA for him, right?

    Maybe we should make everyone sign an “anti-plagarism” statement before entry into the BBWA? How many people do you think we’d get then, Pete? How many?

    The tone of the whole sports media over this steroid mess has been beyond disgusting in its absolute hypocrisy. Keep it up, and maybe some of us will indeed form a “truth squad” to expose the rampant plagarism in the field.

    Let ye who is without sin cast the first stone…

  15. Phl Parcells February 17th, 2009 at 7:03 pm

    Jeremy February 17th, 2009 at 6:43 pm

    AG,

    Would you have written the same thing if he had worn a pendant with a crucifix or Star of David on it?

    Kabbalah is not for me either, but let the guy believe what he wants.
    *****************************

    what if he wore a pentagram or a hammer and sickle?

  16. Ham Fighters February 17th, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    phil i have a chinese army hat with a red star on the crown and whenever i wear it everybody loves it!

    the ole hammer and sickle just dont fire people up like it used to!

  17. Peter Abraham February 17th, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    Pittsburgh YankeeFan:

    Any reporter who is found guilty of plagarism gets fired and therefore would not have a vote. Investigate me all you want. Oh, and most papers have their reporters sign ethics statements. I sign one every year.

    The HoF asked the BBWAA to elect members, not the other way around. Somebody has to elect the members unless you want statistical plateaus to determine it.

  18. Phl Parcells February 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Ham Fighters-

    I was being nice. I was using the hammer and sickle as a proxy for a more infamous geometric symbol.

  19. Ham Fighters February 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    vasgersian just said of arod; “he wasnt a young dumb kid for much of his career, in fact this is one of the more bright, intelligent players in sports, i think.”

    that is delusional.

  20. jpsice01 February 17th, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    I vote to banish any Yankee fans from Pittsburgh. Especially insane ones.

    I’m just saying…

  21. pat February 17th, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    We really don’t need to inject religion into a sports blog but since some people went there…A Kabbalah bracelet to him is no different than a crucifux or a chai on someone else. Get over it.

  22. PittsburghYankeeFan February 17th, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    OK. Part Two.

    Bud Selig: You better stop saying another word on ARod, now. You in about the deepest stool possible over not destroying anonymous information (the civil suit damages could be in the billions if the players choose to sue). You also turned your back on this in the 90′s when the problem was rampant. Ashamed of ARod? Look in the mirror, Bud. The records stand. There is only one asterisk, and it was stupid when it was done, and remains stupid 48 years later.

    Roy Oswalt and Jamie Moyer: Willful ignorance is almost as bad as doing it. Both of you have been in the game long enough to know who the juicers are. Either condemn them all, by name, or keep quiet.

    Big Papi: I love to hate you since your a Red Sox, but your suggestion for the steroid ban is right on the money. Did you do them yourself? Admit it now if you did.

    ARod: I guess ARoid or Ster-Rod is better than May-Rod. You manned up and admitted it, even if it came off as controlled, like everything else you do. When you are likely the best ever, like Tiger Woods, I guess everything you say and do off of the field has to be tightly controlled, and nobody will ever understand that entirely, since they are not you. Just be sure that this is it. Another drug problem, and you’re toast.

  23. Uncle Ellsworth February 17th, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    I thought A-Rod was the most immature and insecure player in Baseball – He’s the smartest TOO?

  24. GreenBeret7 February 17th, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    Billy Ripkin is ill-suited for being in front of a camera. His only claim to fame is his brother. He was talking earlier about his being with Texas when that Canseco crowd was there. Of course, he failed to mention that that was at the latest 1994.

  25. the wonder steinbrenner February 17th, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Pete, I would have to say of all questions to be asked yours was luke warm and as for your stats he was 25 and not 26 and was in the league for 6 yrs not 7. So we ask alex to get it right , you should too

  26. Phil February 17th, 2009 at 7:21 pm

    I think a blue ribbon committee with a full knowledge of stats and what they mean should pick the Hall of Famers. The writers have a bunch of biases.

  27. Ham Fighters February 17th, 2009 at 7:21 pm

    i think he just got lost in a vortex of money and privelege and ego and enablers and didnt have much grounding in humility, empathy or fairness and he got lost.

    i dont buy how innocently he protrayed his interest in getting and using it was, but i could see him cooking up a plan to seem clean to everyone while his cousin was hooking him up with the stuff that he knew others were using.

    to me, if the facts dont contradict any of it, this sounds stupid enough to be true. or at least, as i said, as close to true as alex can come.

  28. Much Ado about Something February 17th, 2009 at 7:23 pm

    In hearing first the various people on radio and tv commenting on ARod’s press conference, then watching it myself I find myself wondering if I saw the same thing as they did.

    Yes, he over did saying he was young and stupid, but so what? He seemed pretty open about his use and put the blame on himself for his actions. He deflected the tarnished record to others to judge – which they will. Which they already have even before having the facts as he told them.

    I have known plenty of people who used drugs. Some woke up to what they were doing to themselves at 19 years old, others are still doing them after 50 years of age. The point is there is no magic age when you grow up. Some people never do. 24 is a young age, and depending on the person a time when you do things without really thinking of the consequences of your actions. It doesn’t condone those actions, but it is a valid reason even if you – for yourself wouldn’t act that way.

    I doubt there are any people that haven’t done something in their past that they are ashamed of later in life. Having to own up to it is extremely difficult.

    While he might not have answered everything to everyone’s satisfaction, the thing to remember is no one can really do that. Cynics will always read more into it than is there. The man has a made a huge error in judgment, but he faced up to it and blamed his actions on the person he sees in the mirror. Himself.

  29. stuart February 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    the only people holier then the holier then though media are the moyers and oswalts of the world.

    again let’s be fair, arod cheated absolutely but let’s be informed of the others who did it also.. You listening Big Papi? How about Brady Anderson? How about Irod, how about all of them…. The pitchers to and we will see who is calling the kettle black…

    Arod is a HOF first ballot without those 3 seasons. ALso to say how can we ever believe him I say don’t believe him look at the blood and urine tests, simple enough!!!!

    All the astonishment form $18 mill a year Selig and the other clowns is laughable.. Selig is a baffoon, hired by the owners to fairly run the sport!!!The guy owend a car dealership and ran the Brewers into the ground over many many years…

    Moyer could only get into the hall by playing to he is 50 years old…I am sure Oswalt feels the same about his good ole buddy clemens and other s getting into the HOF…

    NEWSFLASH, you are expected Arod to be some sophisticated educated guy, why? Peter just because you make mucho dinero does not mean you have any smarts??? Since he got a $250 mill contract when he was 25 he is suppose to be like Warren Buffet?? Really and the reason for that is?

    Arod is polite and presents himself well and therfore he is a smart person!!!!Really………………..

  30. PittsburghYankeeFan February 17th, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    Pete

    You have to admit that there is plagarism in the media despite the ethics statements.

    Did Jason Blair sign an ethics statement? The Times swept that one under the rug for quite a while, didn’t they?

    My point is that nobody is without sin. I hate to sound religious, but admission of sin and forgiveness once it is admitted is what a lot of life is about.

    ARod was wrong. He admitted it. Leave it at that. Abuse him all you want about everything else (and we all know he gives you plenty to write about) but leave him alone over this.

    jspice01 (where is jspice02 by the way): It’s great to be a Yankee fan in Pittsburgh (especially with DirecTV and YesHD). My small market home team causes me enough anguish that banning me is not necessary. The Stillers at least won the Super Bowl…

  31. Ham Fighters February 17th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

    i think xm had to take billy along with cal when they signed him and xm just used him like a rented mule on any home plate show they needed to cover.

    he’s a nice enough guy, but he’s terrible on radio and now, tv. that smooth ripken voice barely registers and he adds nothing to any discussion, imo.

    ————————————————————

    Ellie, according to psychologists interviewed by Tony Castro, who wrote Mickey Mantle: America’s Prodigal Son, and confirmed by Merlyn Mantle, tat he was one of the most insecure people they have ever known, as well as immature. Castro also said that Willie Mays was just as insecure. It had nothing to do with talent, but, failure. A great book to read. Rodriguez has much in common with both of them.

    Ah, Billy Ripkin is harmless enough, but I think they pay him based on how many times he mentions “Junior.” :)

    Good for Alex today!! I think it’s great he came out and said what he said. He may have left some holes in his speech, but damn, he’s said more than all the other accused. This will propel the team and Alex will rebound to have an MVP kind of year. MARK MY WORDS !!

  60. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    First Pittsburgh fan Peter is agreat writter and a great american, No one cares what u think. Second Part I wrote on our blog that we should forgive Alex and move on. We interjected two bible scriptures on our website and many went crazy, we all joke around and tongue in cheek we blog about our fav players,so does Pete on his awesome blog. Some of u crazed people pisss him off and it makes him want to stop blogging. So please get our heads out of ur rear and not take everything people say or blog serious. Like the TOOL that said Peter hates Melky, dude needs to pay attention to what is blog on Peters blog. Stay classy NY! Not San Diego!

  62. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    Do you know that in the Dominican “cousin” or “primo” (in spanish) is not only the son of your aunts and uncles? Actually you callthat way a pal. I know this as a fact.

    Enrique Rojas from ESPN Deportes, who knows many of Arod´s pals, doesn´t know any cousin close to him. http://espndeportes.espn.go.co.....ique_rojas

    Angel -

    That could be Tex. I have no idea what Marte looks like! :lol: I think I saw Phil Hughes in there, looking to the side. I can’t tell the players without a scorecard, for the most part! But I’m blaming Pete because his ST pictures are from too far away!

  68. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Michael Kay who has been roasting Alex the last few days said he had 3 people who are close to him a friend, a cousin, and his half brother.

    “I don’t know what they were,” Giambi testified. “He didn’t really explain them. He just had told me to take them. And it had — he explained it has something to do with the system. … He just said to take it in conjunction with all the stuff.”

    Does this make him Naive and Stupid

    Let’s give Giambi a pass but not Arod

    This was pretty obviously a statement written by Rodriguez and not by a PR team. The constant “young and stupid” wouldn’t have been repeated, and probably not even in it. It’s almost as though the “Team” never even saw it, or, at least didn’t correct it. I’ll take that over a memorized press release, any time.

    Was AJ at the PC today? I didn’t see him, though maybe he was hiding, lol. I thought Damon’s caveman look from 2004 was bad, but his mohawk……wow.

    Roy Oswalt and Lance Berkman can have whatever opinions they want, but I guess they don’t mind coming off as hypocritical losers. They rip Alex to shreds, but they support their teammate (who committed a crime by lying in front of Congress), lol. Talk about stupid – I mean literally, these contradictory statementes were made within days of each other. Did Roy forget what he said? Another one who probably doesn’t know how to tie his shoelaces.

    I can tell this team has chemistry in spades – I just have a really good feeling about them. For most of the players, including the newbies, to show up in support of their teammate (who, per Buster, is actually LIKED in the clubhouse) speaks volumes about them. Perhaps we can actually talk baseball tomorrow? I wonder how Phil looked today in his pen session, lol

  82. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    I don’t get Michael Kay. I’ve found him annoying at times, but I never really minded him overall. Kind of like a cousin (pun not intended) that has their annoying moments, but they’re family – so you tend to let the quirkish behavior slide.

    But these last few days, the man has sounded like a petulant ten year old. I really can’t work out what his deal is.

    Angel -

    I think Michael Kay’s deal is twofold.

    First, he’s a Yankee fan from childhood and I think he feels personally violated by ARod’s indiscretions.

    Secondly, he’s got a talk radio show and isn’t it the thing to do to rant and rave?

  91. S.o.S. February 17th, 2009 at 8:03 pm

    Angel,
    Who was the huge freeking guy standing behing Jeter on the right side next to some lady? He made Joba look like Edwar. Has he gotten tested yet? I assumed he was a body guard.

  92. S.A.-The 2009 MLB season is almost here February 17th, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Oh I see a little of Matsui’s head, right behind Joba’s head

  93. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    That guy behind Joba, is way taller than him and Joba is 6’2. Is that CC without his beard????? He’s the only one who really fits the bill height wise.

  98. jonnycat February 17th, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    speaking of kay’s annoying rantings….is it common for a team to be covered on the air and on the radio by an announcer who bashes members of the team? He’s been so annoying and over the top. If i listened to a game in LA or Milwaukee, or even the Giants, would an announcer be so vehement against a team member? Seems like we’ve lost sight of that.

  99. jennifer February 17th, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    jonnycat Kay has been so over the top lately. it is almost as if he is going over the top to show he isn’t biased.

  102. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    I think you might be spot on, Doreen. There is certainly the air of an outraged/betrayed child upon find out Santa isn’t real or something.

    I suppose I can understand that, but you’d think he’d keep that somewhat in check considering he still has a job to do that will put him in contact with Alex a lot of the time. Doesn’t seem very professional as a Yankee’s play by play man, but I guess it is considered professional for a talkback radio show host?

  103. Angel - A tale told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing February 17th, 2009 at 8:12 pm

  105. Jorge (México) February 17th, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    I am absolutely OK with what Alex said today.
    About the bracelet, I’m not a Kabbalah guy. Far away from that. But to me, it’s real sad when someone makes fun about some other beliefs.
    Alex chocked up for 38 seconds. So? What’s the laugh about? Does anyone imagine what he’s going through? His fault? YES!!! But that does not make you feel very good, don’t you all think so?
    About his teammates, an applause. It was great to have so many of them around. And I’m sure they were showing their support to Alex because they feel that way. Not because they HAD to be over there, like someone said, but because they WANTED TO. They’re grown adults, aren’t they? Or are Jeter, Mariano, Jorge, CC, AJ, Matsui, Wang and Andy, to talk about some of them, are all of them a bunch of hypocriticals? I really don’t think so.
    It is clear to me that there’s a lot of envy around Alex Rodríguez. He has to learn not to care so much about this situation. I only hope media to turn the page (which I’m affraid they won’t) and focus on baseball.
    To me, as I said on the first line, Alex did what he had to do this afternoon. If someone didn’t like what he said, it’s his problem. Not Alex’s.

  106. Drive 4-5 February 17th, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    A Rod put himself in a no win situation. His steroid use would have haunted him the rest of his life regardless of getting caught. In that regard he is no different than any player over the last 40 years that used a greenie, steroid or ped. Some of these players are in the Hall of Fame right now and are saying “there but for fortune go I”.

    It’s a sad situation because these are great athletes that cheated themselves and the game.

  107. duh February 17th, 2009 at 8:14 pm

    “Billy Ripkin is ill-suited for being in front of a camera. His only claim to fame is his brother.”

    that’s not true. his other claim to fame is writing F*ckface on the knob of his bat and having it grace his 1989 Fleer card.

  108. S.A.-The 2009 MLB season is almost here February 17th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    Kay and Francesa-they have all been over the top with this whole Alex story with their whining imo. But, that’s what they do.

    I can’t wait for the first Spring Training game and we are all freaking out about someone’s performance in that game. :lol:

  109. Gary February 17th, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    If not for baseball skills, A-Rod never would have made it in this world as an orator or a speechwriter.

  114. Betsy February 17th, 2009 at 8:20 pm

    “I really wish Jeter would have responded today. All this does is stretch the story out another day. I am so tired of it.”

    I agree Jennifer. I think Jeter should have came out and said “look guys. Arod was stupid and young back then. I mean how would you explain the dumb quotes back then about me not being someone to fear on this team?”

  116. pat February 17th, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Who says there can’t be humor in a grand jury investigation.

    When Jeremy Giambi was asked why he trusted Anderson and took things he didn’t really understand he admitted he was foolish to do that but “it didn’t kill Jason”.

  117. tantron willoughby February 17th, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    The 38 second pause brought a flood of tears to my already swollen eyes. What a pity poor Alexander succumbed to the DR street delicacy Boli. I feel so sad for the little man child and his lack of attention to what he was ingesting. He only had been in MLB for 6 years before he shot himself full of the devil’s brew. Just 6 years, he was a young un with lil sense. I shall pray Obama will deliver a Boli stimulus to help aid the poor child. Maybe, again, another token Republican will be involved.

  118. tantron willoughby February 17th, 2009 at 8:50 pm

    Poor Alexander choked for 38 seconds, it sounds like a replay of his playoff experiences.

    Kabbalah is not a religion. it is set of teachings in Judaism that are “mystical” and not mainstream. Serious scholars (I am not one of them- but I have friends who are) spend their lives “learning” and this is part of what they study.

  124. RMS February 17th, 2009 at 10:02 pm

    OK–I’m back after taking a break to actually work. I’ve said my steroids piece–gotten it out of my system.

    Pete, excellent blog, I’ve been reading it ever since you started it. I disagree with you about ARod on many fronts, and I can’t like the Patriots (since I live in Pittsburgh), but your blog is clearly the tops. Every serious Yankee fan that I know (I grew up in Southern CT) knows about it and reads it. NYYFans is a close second, and I know many of the people that post there post here.

    I, like every Yankee fan, is really primed for this season. Maybe we can finally redeem 2004, the ALCS that will live in infamy.

    I like the idea of a steroid free blog for 24 hours–could we make it 2 weeks or more?

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  151. great info August 11th, 2014 at 10:02 pm

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    I’ve observed that more than the course of producing a relationship with real estate proprietors, you will be able to get them to realize that, in every real estate financial transaction, a payment is paid. Within the finish, FSBO sellers will not “save” the commission rate. Rather, they fight to earn the commission by basically performing a great agent’s function. In accomplishing this, they devote their money and also time to execute, as greatest they may well, the responsibilities of an broker. Those tasks consist of revealing the home by way of marketing, introducing the home to prospective buyers, building a sense of buyer emergency in order to make prompt an offer, organizing home inspections, dealing with qualification check ups with the loan company, supervising repairs, and facilitating the closing.
