The New York Metropolitans decide to amicably say good bye to manager Callaway’s managerial services. I love my Mets but they seem to hunt for the right opportunity how Cheney hunts with his friends, everyone looking out not to get shot in the face by a shotgun. Not because they are doing it purposely but it seems that they lack the restraint not to pull the trigger until it’s necessary. The difference between the Mets making and not making the playoffs has nothing to do with Callaway but the Mets closer, who had the backing of the front office. Take away all of Diaz’s blown saves, the Mets are in. Is that Callaway’s fault? No. Diaz was an all star that everyone felt would provide the relief that the Met’s needed, but NYC is a big time city with heavy expectations that can put a tremendous amount of stress on an individual and Diaz, at least this year, was not up to the task. I think the firing of Callaway was a mistake. He put the best team out there and was forced, I’m sure, to use Diaz and Cano, who should have been on the bench, no offense to Cano who was a great player but is aging and a step slower. But maybe the Mets are right to get a Manager that will tell the front office who will and who won’t play. Callaway’s managerial faults were that he probably played players that he didn’t want to but felt the pressure of the front office. If they hire someone like Joe Maddon, they might actually win it all because Joe doesn’t seem like a person that will listen to the guy upstairs. I think Callaway, given the freedom to fall on his sword, would have done alright and made the playoffs.

What about this don’t you get!!

homeless woman and child


After me and my ex-wife separated, I didn’t want her to be taken advantage of, so  when she called me in 2014 asking if there was anything I could do to help, she said she couldn’t pay for rent and food and that no one wanted or could help her, I gave her the money only if she promised to graduate, not to come back to me (even though that was what I wanted) but to make sure that she was independent and had a way to provide for herself and our son without anyone’s help. If she wanted to come back, I would hope it was because she loved me not because she needed me or couldn’t afford to be by herself. I didn’t want her to be dependent on anyone, not me, not anyone for her survival. So in 2014, after not receiving a full retirement paycheck for almost a year, I gave her money and would later become homeless. I lived on the streets of San Diego, moving from Florida to NJ and then San Diego, for a year.

She did an amazing job. She graduated and now supports everyone in her household and her mother in Colombia



I have fallen down a 30 foot cliff, been shot at by a cartel, faced off with a federale with a gun. The worst day of my life was seeing my wife and son cry and not being able to fix it immediately. But today is a new day and the tears faded and the smiles are back and the tears didn’t return and there is so many more smiles to put on their faces, I have just begun.
