Random Thursday Thoughts

Random notes and thoughts this Thursday morning:

Officially it’s called Digital Video Recording but more commonly it’s referred as DVR and beginning tonight it becomes a necessity, not just a luxury. I have to record The Office, ER & Grey’s Anatomy…three of our favorites which will be added to the list of programs I already have recorded which I have not had a chance to watch yet. That’s because evenings and now completely devoted to watching the Mets crash and burn which of course one must watch live….not later.

I should be the last person to question anyone’s priorities. By the time I got home last night President Bush was addressing the nation about the current financial crisis and my first thought was thank goodness the Met game is not on a network carrying the Presidents speech.

Rich Petrosino was simply one of those guys who always made you feel like the glass was half-full and he was a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. I can’t remember him without a smile and those who knew him the best probably miss that the most. The Toms River resident lost a swift battle to pancreatic cancer early in the year and now family and friends have organized a golf outing in his name with proceeds to benefit the Rich Petrosino Memorial Scholarship Fund. The inaugural outing will take place on Monday, October 20th at Woodlake Country Club and organizers are looking for golfers and sponsors. For information you can call Sean at (732) 551-0163.

Every Thursday night during the football season I co-host the AutoLenders High School Football Show and tonight will be the first of several live on location broadcasts. We’ll be at Klee’s Bar & Grill in Seaside Heights from 6-8pm and guests will include head coach Bill Hill and quarterback Kevin Gilmore of Toms River South and Monsignor Donovan head coach Dan Duddy and his son Mike, a running back for the Griffins. The show airs on the Shore Sports Network, including 1160 WOBM AM.
