My old guy's baseball team had a big meeting today at Johnny's New York Pizza in Lakewood, Colorado, located on Wadsworth Avenue, just north of Mississippi. Even though John, the proprietor is a Mets fan, I don't mind giving him a plug for a couple of reasons. He isn't like most obnoxious Mets fans so I actually like him. Plus, his food is outstanding.
Well, last year our team, the Orioles made the playoffs but fizzled out shortly after. Our player/manager Steve Brouwer has made a few key off-season acquisitions and I think we'll be a contending club. However, we are no longer the Orioles. Our new name is the Rattlers. Personally, I wish we stayed the Orioles since I don't feel like shelling out more money to buy a new uniform.
I've started my off-season workouts and I find that as I get older I need to work harder. But the harder I work the more I need time to recover.
Today at our meeting I had a meatball calzone which is what I normally get at Johnny's. But since I'm in training I think this will be the last calzone I eat for a while. To say they are filling would be an understatement. It's like eating a football. So for now, it is with great sadness that I say goodbye to Johnny's meatball calzones. But I'll be back.
