Man the view is pretty.....but damn do I hate New York.

It isn't bad enough that I have to listen to all the slobbering on the Yankmees....but even worse is listening to the Mets act like Carlos Beltran was "homegrown".....

I do believe the cab driver was in cahoots with my wife in trying to help her collect my death benefits.

They said he "blossomed" into a great player once he hit the Big Apple...even worse was them making fun of the old "Dos Carlos" routine..they have Beltran and DelGado....

One other observation......parts of NYC are pretty damn dirty.

Oh come on MO, we'll get tickets to "My Fair Lady" followed by dinner at the Oyster Bar then talk about how the musical lyrics apply to the loss of innocence in our lives over banana daiquiris.

I'll pick you up at 7.


I could have danced all night!
I could have danced all night!
And still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings
And done a thousand things I've never done before

My room overlooks the UN and the Hudson River....pretty view at night.

Ate at Bond's 54 tonight........great Italian Chop and Steakhouse...had the 12 oz Strip....had to walk back to the hotel to shed the pounds I gained.


Business travel is hell, but there are some nice perks. :)

Just go to Flash Dancers....It's across the street from the theater that David Letterman broadcasts from. I had Thanksgiving dinner there 10 years ago and I still wear a smile on my face.

Tried to score Letterman tix tonight but not lucky enough.....have to stay away from places like Flash Dancers unless I want to be a homeless person when I get back to the wife and kids.

Is it too late to suggest you load up on explosives and return to the UN?...

LOL....funny that you would ask that.

When I got to the hotel on Wednesday and got out of the taxi, I was approached by a gentleman with a dog. Thinking it odd, I tried to avoid him, but found out that I wouldn't be able to go into my hotel, unless I allowed his bomb-sniffing dog to peruse my luggage. Since the hotel, the UN Millenium Plaza, is situated on the 28th-38th floors of One UN Plaza and the offices below are for UN-related personnel, there is a great deal of security.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had done a security check on me at some time after I had made the reservation.

One highlight for me on this trip was meeting Chris Hansen, the Dateline-NBC reporter who did the expose's on the pedophiles. Met him on the flight from Chicago to New York.
