The LuLac Edition #2099, June 22nd, 2012
MAYBE I’M AMAZEDMAYBE I’M AMAZED…….at how people around here complain about 90 degree days as if it is the end of the world! It is summer, it gets hot, it gets humid and we get thunder storms. But as I’ve often said, and so many others including my friend Sue Henry’s mom, “you don’t have to shovel heat”. Enjoy the summer. It will go away sooner than you think and the dark, gray, cold death that is a LuLac winter will come soon enough.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……........................that there seems to be talk of a move by private investors, and members of the public to see if they can buy WARM Radio from Cumulus Broadcasting.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the Wagon Wheel Restaurant in Shickshinny has fought all the way back from the devastating flood of 2011. To me it is the best family restaurant in Luzerne County. Fresh ingredients, good prices, relaxed atmosphere. And the fish fry was great. Good luck to the owners and staff who are coming back better than ever.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that even though I don’t watch a scintilla of the NBA throughout the year, the final championship week gets my attention. I’m glad Lebron James won a title. Only because I have worn out story lines that carry from year to year speculating “Will he ever do it?”
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the bride grooms stick around even after the hysterical brides appearances on TLC’s “Say Yes To the Dress” by their women folk. I do not watch but Mrs. LuLac does and I can’t help but hear the overflow of the show. God save us all!!!
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the New York Daily News had the top New York Met team of all time. The all time manager was Davey Johnson instead of Gil Hodges. Johnson won in ’86, Hodges in ’69. Out of sight, out of mind I guess. But Hodges should’ve been named to the Hall of Fame too as a player. The team is
Catcher Mike Piazza
1st base Keith Hernandez
2nd base Edgardo Alfonso
SS Jose Reyes
3rd base David Wright
LF Cleon Jones
CF Carlos Beltran
RF Darryl Strawberry
RH Starter Tom Seaver
LH Starter Jerry Koosman
RF Reliever Roger McDowell
LH Reliever Tug McGraw
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…that Texas Outfielder Josh Hamilton has succumbed to the Sports Illustrated curse. Since appearing on SI in early June, Hamilton who had the greatest start of any player in 80 years has hit only .211 with 12 strikeouts. Stay off that magazine. Stay off that magazine unless you’re a super model.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the feds had a series of Jerry Sandusky’s other victims waiting in case they lost the case they built against the former Penn State coach. One of the most stunning announcements was that Sandusky’s own adopted son was one of the victims.
