New York Shitty Day Ender: The Agony Of Defeat…

but not really.

Loser

My team* was eliminated in what was the lowest scoring match of the entire tourney. In other words: New York Shitty came in dead last. I am not in the least upset by this. In fact, I found it to be a tremendous relief: it meant I didn’t have to stick around for finals unless I wanted to. As I recounted to Dan the Robot Monkey Man after my ignominious defeat:

People are always fighting to be on top. I prefer being at the bottom. No one will try to take that distinction away from me. It’s mine for the keeping.

Needless to say there will be Robot Monkey footage to follow. The final round was fierce— but Brooklyn won!

MISSING

I found this flier on Green Street as I was headed to T.B.D. to see how the Robot Monkey preparations are going (they’re going well, if you’re lest you are wondering). If anyone has seen Miss Helen please contact her people at the above telephone number. She is sorely missed. Thanks!

BREAKING: An Accident On Manhattan Avenue

September 26, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

Those of you who are wondering what the police and fire department presence is about at the intersection of Eagle Street and Manhattan Avenue, I can tell you. There was a collision between a moped and automobile.

I happened upon a witness who kind enough to give me the 411. Apparently the blue car, which was headed south, made a left hand turn and the moped (which was headed north) could not stop in time. I was told the driver of the moped sustained minor injuries. If so, he (or she) was very, VERY lucky. Nonetheless, this does bring up the issue speeding on Manhattan Avenue. Anyone who lives north of Green Street will tell you that motorists are driving WAY too fast down this stretch. The intersection of Eagle Street and Manhattan Avenue needs is a traffic light. Otherwise, the next time an accident comes to pass here (and rest assured, it will) the outcome may not be as fortuitous.

Hi Heather –

I noticed you’ve put a stoop sale event up!  Well, here’s another that I’ve seen a few flyers for [and yes for this one I am a bit biased in favor of 🙂 ]

Thrift Sale
September 26th 10am – 2pm
St. John’s Evangelical. Lutheran Church
155 Milton St.

A lot of things you’d never find anyplace else and for a nice price, stop by and say hi and bring a friend or two or three.

Right around the corner from the Kent St. Festival.

So there have you. If there isn’t enough stuff going on in Greenpoint this weekend to tickle your fancy I suppose there’s always Williamsburg.

Last Gasp: Has Anyone Seen Samson?

samson

I knew I was forgetting something when I wrapped up today’s posts. Naturally, I remembered immediately after I hit the “publish button”. If anyone has seen Samson or knows of his whereabouts please contact his family at the above telephone numbers. NOTE: the prefixes for the previous (which I absent-mindedly cropped) are as follows: 646, 646 and 718.

Thanks!
