    Going to grad school with a couple of buddies who played college ball, they didn’t know what to do with themselves when the season started and they weren’t playing. Took them a year to change their habits.

    Jesus, Bernie, get a hobby or something.

    I assure you, my lord, finance the 2010 expedition and we WILL find that passage to Cathay and the Japans for sure! We need but three stout ships and 150 good men and true!

    Did you hear: Teixeira was a HUGE Mattingly fan?

    (talking about stories that won’t die, either)

    Glad to see everyone reads the New York Times.  This place is a classier act than the Lupica rag, only Mark Feinsand saves the News.

    Chipmaker, despite your hearty request for a hardy crew for the voyaging, if Buddy Ebsen searching for it on the show Northwest Passage couldn’t find it, it’s just not there.  There’s no hope for it in a post-Ebsenian voyage.

    “Jesus, Bernie, get a hobby or something.”

    1. I’m glad you used that first comma.

    2. Bernie has a hobby: the guitar. Maybe he can play the national anthem on Opening Day at the new park.

    Actually, after a few more years of Arctic ice melt, there will be a Northwest passage, with half a dozen countries claiming they own it. So you see? Centuries of patience, plus one global catastrophe, and dreams do come true.

    I was going to say what Chris just said. We’re actually gearing up for a huge international battle over who controls the now-existent Northwest Passage. Fun times to be alive.

    Franklin’s widow looked for him for 12 years! Or, more precisely, she asked other people to look for him.

    Apparently, Franklin and his crew ended up on each other’s menus.

    Not to be a total nerd, but the Northwest Passage has been navigated several times. The first man to successfully do so was Norwegian Roald Amundsen in 1903-1906. There was a whole NOVA episode about it. Just sayin…
