  1. This part of the season sucks so hard, 4 more weeks of nothing and then we finally get something to folllow. Was just thinking that I have actually lived in San Diego for 33 years now but I still miss some things in NY: Of course it has been so long ( I havent even been back since 2014) that maybe these things are no longer true 1. The people. California is not as friendly a place as NY. You rarely know your neighbors. People get easily offended. Everyone is very PC. I miss the warmth of NYers, couple with their in you face honesty and bluntness. I miss the fact that you could get in

  5. I used to work for Universal Music, flying out to L.A. from NYC every two weeks for a few days back when expense accounts had no limits in that business. Great job. Anyway this reminded me of a phrase I used to hear back then: Californians say "Have a nice day" when they really mean "F-U" New Yorkers say "F-U" when they really mean "Have a nice day"

  7. I helped move a buddy down to SC back in the nineties. We made the road trip in a couple trucks, got down to SC and were meeting a friend of his in a big box parking lot. Got out of the truck to stretch after being on the road. This nice couple goes walking past us and I see them glance at the license plates. They look up at me and smile and I shout, "WHAT THE F*** ARE YOU LOOKIN' AT?!?" The couple scurried off. My buddy says to me, "What did you do that for?!" I replied, "Well, I didn't want to disappoint them."

  10. Lived and worked on LI for basically my entire life then retired and moved to the Rivera Maya in Mexico last January at 55. It’s not for everyone, but for me it’s basically perfect. Cost of living is a third of that in NYC. I have a nicely appointed two bed two bath house two blocks from the Caribbean Sea with a rent less than half of what I paid for a similar sized apartment in Suffolk County. People are awesome. There’s a natural sense of humor here that’s just fantastic. A lot of poverty, but people are still out enjoying their lives. Pizza and bagels are things I miss and eat a ton of when

  12. Night in the Jungle passes uneasily. The apes are restless and danger lurks but still some sleep is had. In the morning you wake up to find that the great white beast is dead! No, not the Ape, the other great white beast: The Tiger King!!! Ape AKA @Integrity28 AKA The Tiger King, Serial Killer, has been killed.

  13. Never lived in NY but haven't live in US for 7 years so I'll go broader. Things I miss about US: 1. Friends/family obviously 2. Being able to watch sports in their normal timezone. Seems minor but it's more annoying than you think. Only getting 2 hours of sleep after watching Sunday/Monday night football not really an option most weeks. 3. Speaking English. This is not one of those "everyone should speak 'Merican!" comments. I just miss speaking my mother tongue in daily interactions. Casual chats with shopkeepers, taxi drivers, etc. Never having to find the right words, or have

  14. What I miss I believe is no longer there. It has changed except now traffic is worse, taxes are ridiculous, corruption. NYC isn’t even safe anymore. I absolutely LOVE living in Charlotte. But as a kid, in Manhattan in summers and LI for school was a great experience. NOW, NYC is full of transplants, the neighborhoods are not the same. I lived in Yorkville. The apartment was rent controlled. NOW, those apartments are 4K a month and up. In NY people complain about taxes etc… here, nobody leaves

  15. I've lived outside of NY/NJ area for most of my adult life and spent 10 of the last 13 years in England. When people ask me what I miss about the US, as somebody did just a couple days ago, I always say "watching football with my buddies and NY pizza". I do love getting back to NYC once every year or so to hang out with a couple of buddies I've known since I was 11. Looking forward to the next time. As far as living in California...I have no idea how you do it. Quite the exodus going on there at the moment.

  18. The Jets are hitting the road for a portion of their training camp. The Post has learned the Jets will conduct two joint practices with the Packers on Aug. 18 and 19 in Green Bay in advance of the two teams meeting in a preseason game on Aug. 21. The Jets now have some close ties to the Packers. Jets offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur is the younger brother of Packers head coach Matt LaFleur. Jets head coach Robert Saleh is also very close friends with Matt LaFleur. The two worked and lived together at Central Michigan in 2004 when both were starting out as young coaches. Thi

  26. Amen, to the above. I miss a big FAT nothing about the northeast other than the food, my boat I used to own on the Jersey shore, and the friends I still have that live there. As far as NC, it's friendly, people wave and say hello, it's slow and relaxed, and I don't have road rage anymore lol... I do have to agree with you on Raleigh, but I don't go there often, and try and stay away from Cary as well. I live south of Chapel Hill and it's starting to grow rapidly. Once my wife retires, I don't envision us staying there, as I need to get closer to the water (ocean)... Time for my NEW b

  27. Spent 8 years in Scottsdale and just moved back to CT. One of the major reasons I left was the West is burning and running out of water. The population growth is simply unsustainable. SD is beautiful. The last time I went to Coronado the beach was covered in algae and dogs were sh*tting on the beach. I love a lot about the West but a lot of the beautiful natural areas are dying off or being over run by people. I'm so happy to be back East. The LI sound is beautiful. There's Bald Eagles, osprey and comorants everywhere. Yellow and red fox running around and bears are coming

  31. In this jungle Ape, not Man, is at the top of the food chain. There may be many similarities between Ape and Man but the Apes were able to quickly recognize that there was something different about Drums. After much sniffing and rummaging and bloviating they finally surrounded Drums and simply beat him to death until all that was left was red jelly on the floor. "Is the Ape dead yet?" you hear echo through the jungle. Drums, William Clayton professional Gorilla hunter and Mafia Goon, has been lynched!

  33. https://www.newyorkjets.com/news/pff-gives-jets-an-a-in-2020-draft-re-grade Pro Football Focus recently re-graded each team’s 2020 NFL Draft class after the players' first season. PFF gave the Jets a B+- after last year's draft and gave them an A in the re-grade. "While the Jets' Day 2 picks from 2020 are still largely to be determined, Mekhi Becton is already a force at left tackle after posting a 76.0 pass-blocking grade as a rookie," Michael Renner wrote. "The wild card here is [CB] Bryce Hall, who is a perfect scheme fit for Robert Sa

  34. Much like everything else in the world during 2020, the landscape surrounding the NFL looked vastly different. While still transitioning back to a sense of normalcy across the league, including fans coming back to the stadiums, some players are beginning to experience a true off-season. Such is the case with the 2020 draft class. This was Joe Douglas’ first draft as GM of the Jets, considering he was hired in June after the 2019 NFL Draft, and it was a draft unlike any other in history. Drafting from his home office accompanied by his children, and not the front office members of the Jets, Dou

  36. Somehow people are always trying to separate the QB from the roster. As if the QB can't be a reason the roster as a whole is bad. It's Roster VS. QB on JN. It's rarely a discussion of how the QB can help make the roster look better or worse. If the QB is bad, it must be because his WR's, OL, and coaching all suck. It can't be him sucking too. You would think many here would have learned their lesson from Mark Sanchez. Bad QB on a good roster, and the QB was still bad.

My beautiful girlfriend turning heads at the bars, then fiancé then wife and now a litter of kids by the jersey shore. I miss those streets, the people, the food; that vibe that you were in the center of the world. I often look West as the paradise lost. The plan was to join you out there. But then Dad left and mom got sick and plans changed and had to figure out what to do with my life on the east coast. Roots grew

So I started chatting her up while we walked around with the dogs. I made it to first base... literally... the dog park was in an old baseball field. Fin.
