Good Night, and Good Luck

I'm hanging it up for a while. Over the last few months, I've become increasingly "distracted" shall we say by the political state of affairs in our country. Hamdan decision notwithstanding, it's a catastrophe, and it's taking up more mindshare these days than even my beloved Mets.

As well as the Mets are playing, at this point virtually guaranteed of a playoff berth, it seems like an odd time to jump off the bandwagon. I'm not off the bandwagon, I just need to take a back seat for a little while.

I had toyed with the idea of writing a lengthy diatribe in this farewell post, but that's not what anyone comes here for. Suffice it to say that at this point I feel debating the managerial decisions of Minaya and Randolph is fiddling while Rome burns. Plus, they seem to have done a much better job than I gave them credit for.

Thanks for reading. Lets go Mets!
