The SNY Game Coverage Drinking Game

Picture_289With the start of the season mere short days ahead of us, I figured why not make the SNY broadcasts–with their loveable characters and wacky moments–even more enjoyable. What can possibly make that happen? Why, drinking, of course.

    Zoe, I sent this to Matt Cerrone, too- tell me what you think. I visited The Met — the Museum, that is, and re-viewed a favorite painting of mine– Diego Velazquez’s portrait of Juan de Pareja:

    I love this guy, but for the first time, he reminded me of someone. Of course!!

    I don’t have my PhotoShop up and running, or I would do some kind of mashup.

    Love the blog, Zoe! RE: the drinking game, it occurs to me that Ralph Kiner definitely deserves som love, too.
