I love the YES Network. When I wake up on the couch at 4 a.m., there is almost always a YES Network infomercial on and two weeks later I get a ShamWow in the mail. It holds 12 times its weight in liquid!
But the YES Network web site used to be full of such stories as “Levine, Trost urge fans to sell children to afford tickets” and “Steinbrenner wins Tampa marathon while carrying grand piano.” Lately, however, the site is really trying.
Take their blogs, for instance. They’ve entered into agreement with our friends from River Ave. Blues to provide some content. Those guys do a great job and I’m looking forward to seeing how that works out. They also have two of their on-air personalities writing blogs.
The lovely and talented Kim Jones has Keeping Up With the Jones.
The lovely and talented Bob Lorenz has The Blob. Catchy name, Bob.
Seriously, Kim and Bob are funny, know the Yankees and will provide some unique insight. So check out what they’re doing. Then come back here.
It only took two comments for somebody to propose to Kim. That wacky internet.
Ron asked me to pass this along:
A few tickets remain for the LoHud Blog Outing to see the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees take on the Pawtucket Red Sox on Sunday, July 5 at 5 p.m. The outing will be held in the Right Field Bullpen Field Box at PNC Field.
The price is $32 per person except for children 2 and under who are free. This includes the game ticket, program, hat, all you can eat food (hot dogs, hamburgers, BBQ chicken, pasta salad, cole slaw, baked beans, watermelon, cookies) and unlimited soda and water. The bullpen field box will also have a dedicated bartender servicing a cash bar.
If interested please e-mail me (Ron) at firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of tickets you’d like, and if they are available I’ll send you an invoice through PayPal.
