My summer sabbatical is over and I am back to blogging! I had a terrific summer at Camp this year! I loved all my friends and the fact I got to play sports all day, every day. I may have not had my eyes glued to a device all summer, but I’ve stayed tuned in the sports world with the help of my counselors and a big shout out for Mark Carberry who was Mr.Sports in the morning and kept our whole boys side tuned in on everything we missed from baseball scores, to the basketball off-season, to social media and lastly, but most memorably, his Bo-Sox who currently sit in last by 14.5 gms ;( . As he always said: “Get the rye, get the mustard, because today’s gonna’ be a grannnd Salami of a day!” And before you know it, you’re counting down to summer 2015. Now here I am, blogging again…

Yesterday the Mets lost 2-1 to the Cubbies after beating them twice in a row. In Queens, that’s good baseball 🙂 .After a Grandy RBI, the Mets kept it tied 1 all going into the 9th and you could guess what happened. Classic Met letdown on a Starlin Castro HR in he top of the 9th.  This puts NYM at a 59-66 record, 7 below 500. And before the season we were talking about 90 wins! Put that on hold for sure! The Mets sit in 4th right now 11.5 games out from 1st the Nats, and 3.5 back from 3rd…

Also in baseball, Michael Cuddyer led his Rockies to a 10-5 victory after he hit for the 1st cycle this season and his 2nd career one.  A great accomplishment for Cuddyer…

In basketball news, former Mavs star, Shawn Marion signed with the Cavs on a veterans minimum deal. He will serve on the bench as a great bench support player for a championship caliber team. Let’s face it, even players bandwagon to teams…

In football, preseason is now on a roll after the Broncos defeated the 49’ers 34-0 at the 1st ever game at newly built, Levi’s Stadium after the legendary Candlestick Park. Remember, this is preseason, the 9’ers are my best bet to reach the super bowl against the Broncos, but this is a game of players competing for backup and maybe starting roles. So please, it was a big win, but don’t take it too seriously…
