(gotta love the who cares what I'm saying I'm taking off my clothes attitude)
Yet between 7:30 and 9:30 Am I received numerous calls and text messages regarding the Sunday central park field status.
Here are some accounts:
Call #17:45 am Charles Salzberg - manager Westies
Charles quote "Ricky We have to go the to the field b/c the other team's manager cannot contact his team:
Ricky : This reminds me of years ago when on a rainy day crazy Willie Ferrer asked me "If I had called the Astros (other team)". I was thinking Huh? Who gives a fuck about the other team?!!! Anyway, I asked Charles to go to the field and let me know if games were on.
Solution: Wait till 8:30 and go back to bed b/c games were off.
Text 7:40 AmRalph Serrano - Player Westies & Rangers - All day Sunday : "Is the game on?"
Rick Response "I'm waiting home till 8:30am till Charles goes to field and he becomes one with the universe and cancels all the games"
Ralph Response "OK"
Phone Call #2 7:45 AMDavid Nelkin - Sunday Morning Player and Sunday Afternoon Big Apple Manager
David" Hi Ricky are games on?"
Ricky Response "I'm waiting (and thinking how the fuck did you get my number????)"
David response :"Wanna call me back"
Ricky Response "Not really"
Phone Call #3: 8:00 AMWest Manager and lead softball insider analyst John Sheppard
Ricky Response" Let me call Big Apple Commissioner Jeff Marcus and get back to you
Next I called Jeff Marcus and he said
Ricky Response " "
Next Call 8:30 AmJimmy Bitros - manager Rangers
Ricky Response "I will be there"
In addition, I received other numerous text messages and emails. Needless to say I just got too many fucking weather calls too early in the day. So next time the weather is iffy I am doing like the fields and putting up a Red Flag and close up shop.
