October 31, 2015, Queens, NY It’s all about the N. It’s all about the Y. It’s all about the N.Y. On this last day of October, the Mets are playing Game 4 of the World Series at Citi Field, Queens, NY. The Knicks are playing the Washington Wizards, and they are showing signs of life again. The Nets are playing the Memphis Grizzlies. The Giants and Jets have big games tomorrow. The Giants are playing the New Orleans Saints, and a win keeps them on top of their division. The Jets play the Raiders in an important game. A win keeps them primed for the playoffs, even though the New England Patriots might run the table.
The New York City Marathon is tomorrow. Possibly the grandest of all Marathons (but Boston might have something to say about it). The New York Islanders now play at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The New York Rangers figure to make a deep run for Lord Stanley’s Cup.
We have two of everything. Two Baseball teams. Two Hockey teams. Two Football teams. Two Basketball teams. We even have Two Lopez’s (Brook and Robin).
Sports doesn’t get any better than New York City. What a night. And we even get to turn the clock back an hour. Let’s go Mets, Nets, Giants, Jets, Islanders, Rangers, Knicks, Yankees, and Marathon runners. Celebrate sports, and celebrate New York. The N. The Y. The N.Y.
