An interesting Prospect

Monday afternoon I was at the barbershop, and as is often the case sports was being bantered about and it was free of any concerns about the news cycle.  Monday’s subject concerned LeBron James and Cleveland and whether there would ever be an uglier break up.  A few prospects were raised, for instance what if Kobe had taken the Clippers offer in 2004.  I think another one is in the offing.  What if the Cards and Albert Pujols can’t come to terms and he leaves as a free agent and signs with their archrival Chicago Cubs.  It might make our current red state/blue state tensions seem mild by comparison.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
