Santa’s newest elf

GM Meeting BaseballBrian Cashman is going through with it. Twenty-two stories, straight down, with Santa Claus by his side. The event is called Heights & Lights in downtown Stamford, and the Yankees general manager is eager to play his part.

“I’m a Stamford guy, and it’s an honor to participate in such a special Holiday family event for the community,” Cashman said in a statement released by the team. “‘Heights and Lights’ is designed to draw the people of Stamford and its surrounding neighborhoods together, drum up interest in its downtown businesses and celebrate the holiday season.

“I’ve been leaving milk and cookies for Santa for some time now, but this year I wanted to take a more active role in assisting him. As an elf, you have to be willing to build toys, wrap presents, prepare reindeer for flight, or rappel off buildings for Santa. I take my role as an elf seriously because there are a lot of children out there counting on him.”

Silly? Maybe. But give Cashman credit for being willing to do something like this for the community.

** Here’s a press release from Stamford **

Heights & Lights returns to Stamford Downtown on Sunday, December 5, 2010 at 4:30 p.m. when Santa and his friends will once again make their grand rappel down the 22 stories of Stamford’s Landmark Building, for Rappelling Santa presented by Reckson, A Division of SL Green Realty Corp. See the King 4th Grade and Middle School Singers & The King Children’s Orchestra as we watch the exciting descent, featuring Guest Elf Rappeller, Brian Cashman, General Manager of the NY Yankees followed by a spectacular Fireworks Display!

After the rappel, Santa’s busy holiday schedule will take him straight up Bedford Street to Latham Park where he will join the Stamford Community in the lighting of the Holiday Tree, donated by Bartlett Tree Company at First County Bank’s Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony with Broadway Star Dan Micciche in a Holiday Sing-along.

Heights & Lights has become a tradition in the city. The event is sponsored by First County Bank, Reckson, A Division of SL Green Realty Corp., The Advocate, 95.9 The Fox, Star 99.9, 1400 WSTC/1350 WNLK, Bartlett Tree Company and Happyhaha.com and brought to you by The City of Stamford and The Stamford Downtown Special Services District. THIS EVENT IS FREE!

    A nice thing to do.

    Thid thread kind of came out of nowhere.
    Another LoHud Christmas miracle?

    Classic stuff. Glad to see he’s taking his role as an elf so seriously. :)

    Gardner tried to walk with 2 strikes so much that he accidentally led all left fielders in walks :(
    As well as saw the most pitches in baseball.

    “THIS EVENT IS FREE!”

    that’s only because it doesn’t have any leverage.

    a few more bizarre stunts like this and you’ll be taking out a second mortgage just to get a ticket.

    BryanHoch #Yankees announce Alfredo Aceves had Nov. 30 surgery to repair a fractured left clavicle (bicycle accident). Will need three months rehab.

    BryanHoch Brett Gardner scheduled for surgery on December 7 (right wrist tendinitis). Is expected to be ready for Spring Training. #Yankees

    Cashman could do his part as an elf by wrapping up Jeter, Mo and Lee…a lot of Yankee fans are counting on him!

  10. hardwired7 December 1st, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    it’s very cool of Brian Cashman to do this.

    I can’t think of any other team in the country that does more to promote a sense of civic responsibility than the Yanks.

    events like this and HOPE week are really just the tip of the iceberg. Mr. Steinbrenner established this culture of largess, and it’s nice to see it continue full steam after he is gone.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    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.

  59. Jacquelyne Basey August 14th, 2014 at 4:20 pm
