It was a pleasure hanging with the BLOHARDS at their first meeting of 2010 yesterday at the Yale Club in Manhattan.
I did five trivia questions about the Red Sox, and that went really well. It's always fun doing that and giving away prizes. We were joined by the great jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli, Ed Randall of WFAN, Budd Mishkin of New York 1, and some other special guests.
From the Red Sox, Darnell McDonald made an appearance with Dave O'Brien, the Red Sox and ESPN announcer. Both very personable guys. I enjoyed meeting them both.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Gary Titus, a DJ and fellow Trivia Maven from Massachusetts. He and his friend Kurt Carberry came down to NY to talk about Sherm Feller, who Gary knew and was the longtime PA of Fenway Park. It has been Gary's mission to get Sherm into the Red Sox Hall of Fame. It's been tough going, but Gary is really determined to see it happen for his friend. He has a web site you might like to check out: www.shermfeller.com.
Gary showed a really cool video presentation of the following clip as a tribute to the late, great Sherm. It's worth checking out:
It was another great day hanging with the BLOHARDS, doing some Yankee bashing and renewing friendships. I'm looking forward to doing more trivia on September 24th, the second and final meeting of the year of the group. And hopefully we'll have something positive to talk about.
