Apple makes fine computers that are durable and reliable. As for some of their accessories, however, that’s another story (see photo of the frayed end of the charger cord to the MacBook Pro laptop computer my company has me use).
This is a tale of how the sausage gets made.
As I sit here at home, peacefully tapping onto my keyboard Monday morning, I glance up occasionally to look out beyond a snow-covered balcony and see what looks to be a winter wonderland of snow-covered trees. Beautiful, no?
My name is Bob Liepa, I’m the sports editor for both The Suffolk Times and the Riverhead News-Review newspapers.
I’ve been trying to figure out why I’ve been on this “All in the Family” kick lately. You know “All in the Family,” the popular sitcom from the 1970s starring the fictional character Archie Bunker.
To say I have a love/hate relationship with sports previews would be way off the mark. At the same time, I cannot deny having mixed feelings when preview time rolls around.
I’m sorry to say it appears as if the Major League Baseball All-Star Game has jumped the shark.
Here’s an idea of what a recent series of days was like for me:
Wednesday: Covered a boys lacrosse game. Froze.
Thursday: Covered a baseball doubleheader. Froze.
Friday: Covered a boys lacrosse game. Froze.
Saturday: Covered a girls lacrosse game. Froze.
Notice a trend?
I have often joked that I am well qualified to give a seminar to sports reporters on how to cover the blowout game. You know, a game that is basically over minutes after it began.
Friday, Aug. 5, was a big day. I had it marked down on my calendar for months, as if I might forget. LOL. No chance of that happening.
How could one overlook the greatest sports day of the year (or more accurately, four years), the official start of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil?
It is true that first impressions can be lasting impressions. Not always, but in this case, it certainly is the case.
My first impression of the quality of college summer league baseball we see on eastern Long Island was unforgettable.
