I don’t care about this picture, it doesn’t bother me at all. But you know somewhere, someone is offended. With the things that this guys says, tweets or does, I wonder if he thinks things out fully before he follows through.

Gov. Chris Christie took some questions today from kids in grade school. One kid asked him about his favorite sport and this ensued (starts at 1:30 mark).
Each Monday home game throughout the season the Mets will wear their alternate camo jersey to honor the military members. Tonight is the first of those such days.

The Brooklyn Cyclones have taken their already awesome promotions to another level. On July 5th they will host a “Salute To Seinfeld” night at the ballpark.
On July 5, 1989, the “Seinfeld Chronicles” aired on NBC for the first time and 25 years later, the Cyclones will celebrate the “show about nothing” that has left an indellible mark on popular culture. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive a Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” Bobblehead. In addition, there will be non-stop Seinfeld themed entertainment from beginning to end. Yada yada yada…you’ll have an awesome night.
