BMF found myself at Yankee Stadium Wed AM at a press conference for the NYC Public High School Championship Football Game.
As some of you know I’ve been super busy producing “City Gridiron” my docu-series on PSAL (Public School Athletic League) Varsity Football.
This is my 3rd season covering football and we’re on every Sunday at 11A on PIX ch 11.
I followed 3 teams this season Canarsie, Lincoln and Erasmus Hall who has NYC’s top recruit Wayne Morgan.
After 12 weeks of games 2 of my City Gridiron teams are playing in the championship game at yankee stadium Tues Dec 6th - Erasmus Hall vs Lincoln
This brings me to the same point I made last year: Why don’t the Mets host football games at CityField during the winter?
They could surely land a regular season game just like the Yankees had Army v Rutgers. Additionally there should be a Bowl game in Queens. “The New York City Bowl” or “Metropolitian Bowl” or “Metro Bowl” find a sponsor, seek out a local team such as Syracuse, Rutgers or UConn and have ourselves a bowl game.
I would think these cash strapped Wilponzis would see a payday and jump at it but for some reason known only to them they’d rather leave their stadium dormant from Oct-March.
Please don’t tell me the Mets are considering Jason Varitek. Good Lord the only backstop more past his prime than Varitek is Posada. Thankfully the Mets already passed on Jorge.
Heath Bell to FLA? Or should I say Miami. I think that’s a good sign by them. The Fish are serious again and something tells me they’re gonna finish above us this season.
