How stupid can you get…

It wasn’t 24 hours earlier that I watched people spraying champagne around Flushing. So how could I forget, covering the Bridgeport Bluefish tonight as they tried to clinch, to bring a change of clothes? (All I could imagine was getting pulled over on the way home. “Officer, look, can you draw the blood here? Because […] [Read More]
