Letter to Dana

Among the many Mets bloggers carrying on for the one who couldn't make it to Hofstra were Steve Keane, John Coppinger, Taryn Cooper and yours truly. (Photo courtesy of Jason Bornstein.)

Dear Dana,

I either have to thank you or blame you for directing me to file my overdue report on the Hofstra Mets 50th Anniversary […]

Sometimes You Ride the Cycle, and Sometimes the Cycle Rides You

I’ve had a ball helping my co-blogger moderating panels at Hofstra’s New York Mets Conference over the last day and a half, as well as sitting and listening to smart Mets fans, former players and baseball historians amateur and professional discuss all things blue and orange.

Magnetic schedules attract me. I have one from every season since the Mets have been giving them out. I was determined to not let that streak end last year. Magnetic Schedule Day was a Sunday, April 10, 2011. I’d been to the Home Opener on Friday. I’d been to the game the night before. Truth […]

Hofstra Time

The Hofstra 50th Anniversary Mets Conference must be getting close, and not just because I finally finished writing my paper for it. Indeed, the event Dana Brand envisioned and cultivated for years is upon us, arriving April 26-28, just three weeks from tomorrow. Registration information, along with a (mostly complete) program, […]
