THE SINGLE BEST PROFESSIONAL SPORTS PERFORMANCE I HAVE EVER SEEN... JOHAN SANTANA'S COMPLETE GAME SHUTOUT AGAINST THE MARLINS.
As quoted in the New York Times today... “Wow, wow, wow, wow,” Manager Jerry Manuel said. “I think if I had to describe that one, I’d say that was gangsta. That’s gangsta. That’s serious gangsta right there.”

GRAVIS X THE HUNDREDS...
I guess it's time for me to retire my grad school backpack and my Mets duffel bag for some new travel pieces...
Lego artist Sean Kenney and a Manhattan grade schooler spent three years building a 60" x 66" x 14" replica (1:150 scale) using 45,700 bricks. When completed, the stadium will be populated with tons of miniature spectators and vendors.

Ferrari V4 Superbike Concept Based on the Enzo
"Israeli industrial designer Amir Glinik has come up with an incredible Ferrari motorcycle concept using a modified engine from the Ferrari Enzo supercar. Using drive-by-wire technology, the V4 superbike features hand controls adapted from an F-16 fighter jet and buttons based on those found on the steering wheel of Ferrari's Formula 1 racecars. Other controls for the sound system and trip computer are located on an all weather touchscreen."

Another sign that the future us here! The next evolution in immersive gaming technology, this cocoon allows players to literally walk into the game. The design concept is a sphere shaped pod with an interior covered in display screens and surround sound. Gamers can use gestures to play games or perform other tasks thanks to motion capture cameras. While the cocoon is still a concept, the ideas could soon be cropping up in other gaming products.
This is clearly a digital, virtual experience that is sure to tap into every last one of your senses.... DOPE!
LTD FLIPS THE NEW YORK METS AND KNICKS LOGOS FOR THEIR FALL '08 COVER... I HOPE THIS IS A SIGN OF GOOD THINGS TO COME FOR MY METS!
"Another large diamond has been found at the Letseng mine in Lesotho. The stone is 478 carats and is the 20th largest rough diamond ever found. What makes this stone important is that its clarity and structure is such that instead of being cut into many smaller stones like the Lesotho Promise diamond, this new stone could yield a single 150 carat cut stone which would be one of the largest cut stones. The potential rare stone could sell for tens of millions of dollars."

ONE LAST SUNDAY AT THE BALLPARK...
There's nothing in the world like catching a day baseball game... a nice seat in the sun behind home plate, nachos (with the jalepenos), peanuts and root beer... I'm the happiest man on earth for 9 whole innings...
In 1923 the Yankees played their first game in Yankee Stadium... 85 years later tonight, they played their last... I planned on writing a long blog about this but, I honestly sit here saddened and speechless... The funny thing is, is that I'm not a Yankee fan, but I still find myself teary-eyed... To think of all the history, the championships, the legends, and the stories that took place in the historic ballpark...
The Yankees will move into the new Yankee Stadium next season which is being built right across the street... I got the chance to visit Yankee Stadium this year when the Mets played the Yanks and as we drove past the new ballpark on the way home, it didn't quite hit me that the House that Ruth Built would soon exist no longer... Yankee Stadium will be torn down this summer, and all that will be left will be the memories, pictures, videos and stories that will live on forever...
I remember hearing one reporter saying it so eloquently... he said... "Here in America, we tear down our Roman Colosseums" It's sad, but true... But maybe that's just how it's should be... a memory...
Thanks for the memories Yankee Stadium.

"Dear summer, I know you gon' miss me
For we been together like Nike Airs and crisp tees
S dots with polo fleeces
Purple label shit with the logo secret
Gimme couple years, shit I might just sneak in
A couple words and like peaches and herb
We'll be reunited and it feels so hood
Have the whole world saying "How you still so good?"
Well I do this in my slumber summer
I ain't none of these half-assed newcomers, you know how I do summer
I drop heat, when you bring the sun up
The combo make niggaz act up..."

Swiss architects Herzog and De Mueron recently revealed their design for 56 Leonard Street, their first residential tower in New York City. The 57 story building is designed with each floor stacked on top of one another, each one slightly askew to create dramatic cantilevers. CRAAAAAZY!
