In a few short hours I'll be boarding a plane to LaGuardia airport to spend a nice weekend in the city, capped off by my favorite holiday of the year - Opening Day. I expect the weather to be lousy, the food to be as terrible as always, and to love every minute of it.
The Mets must be real annoyed right now by the news that Anna Benson is divorcing Kris Benson. It's baseball's worst kept secret that the reason Kris Benson was traded to the Orioles was because his wife was an embarrassment to the organization. Now if Benson has a great year and/or Jorge Julio has a terrible year we can wonder what might have been.
