Weekend of 7.24.09

in a sports filled weekend i was 0-2. 

saturday my curse on the yankees continued. i know now i can't attend another game this season. the yankees are 0-3 when i'm in attendance.
thanks jackie and jason for the tickets!

and no matter how many flags i wore, my curse spread to the USA soccer team. in front of a sold out crowd (90% mexican) at giants stadium the USA lost to mexico 5-0. Despite an embarrassing effort on the field it was a great day. it had everything a soccer game should have: tailgating (with natty-boh and a disposable grill that i dragged on the train), crazy loud fans and great action. 

one goal would've been nice though.....  


Weekend of 7.17.09

An odd weekend. A disappointment for some (twice over), but fun for all in the end. 
And flying dragons.

Love & Baseball

Liz and I celebrated our 1yr anniversary at Keyspan Park in Coney Island last night. It was a great game, the Cyclones came from behind in the bottom of the 9th, but eventually lost to the Aberdeen Ironbirds in extra-innings. 

It had all the fun and trappings of a minor league game: great fans, weird mascots, hotdog races, t-shirt guns and weird promos. 

And as a surprise to Liz, the following announcement was made over the loudspeaker during the 7th inning stretch: "Happy birthday Anthony Cohen, Welcome to the Lions Club of Brooklyn and To the raddest girls ever, happy anniversary Liz, Love Harrison". She almost missed it and was shocked and laughing once she realized what had just happened. 

Let's hope we get to do it again next year.... 


Just Starting Again

I've made several attempts at a blog. 

All failed, but I'm gonna try again. 

Check back for photos, stories and randomness.
