This reminds me of something DH & his partner used to do on slow nights at Grand Central while on post. They would ask people to name 5 states. Some wre able to actually name 5 states, but, they would get "upstate" for an answer alot of times. When they asked one guy about "upstate" he answered, "You know...upstate. You always see signs for it on the Deegan & the Thruway, but you never get there....upstate.". I kid you not!

Wilpon supposedly suffered some steep losses due to dealing with Bernard Madoff. I'd like to see how he's going to operate his team for the next little while.


Which, as a Yankee fan, makes me smile a bit.

Actually, I am not at all surprised about that! I was born and raised "upstate", and always believed no one south of Peekskill knew we existed anyway! Kinda the way the political representation worked too...
