The best thing about running a NYRR race in Central Park? Being able to walk through Central Park at a nice leisurely pace after busting it for a couple of miles. And while snow can be a burden at times (okay, most times), it looks really awesome in this setting.

After whetting the appetite with some exhibition games in Montreal, it was good to see some actual baseball that counted last night at Yankee Stadium. Despite this being the most unrecognizable Yankee lineup I’ve ever seen in the Bronx, they still managed to beat the defending World Champion Boston Red Sox. Many thanks to my buddy Bruce for the freebie ticket.

I can’t begin to describe how much I love this kid. Even if he’s running me absolutely ragged as he does on this and most occasions I see him.

It’s best to let the official description from the Times Square Alliance explain it all:
Counting Sheep (2011) by Brooklyn artist Kyu Seok Oh with the West Harlem Art Fund — a 36-foot long installation consisting of a flock of 24 hand-made paper sheep designed to invite people in Times Square “to relax, count the sheep and even doze off a little.”

I think these guys are working on installing a new water pipe along East 4th Street in the East Village but I’m not quite sure. Still, check out the balancing act atop that pipe!

Okay, confession time – I sometimes forget what photos I’ve taken. The above photo is a good example. I found it online when searching for “wonggawei”, my Flickr account nickname and came across a blog that was using it in a post. Once I saw it, I remembered that I took it while walking across the 59th Street Bridge in an attempt to save on a subway fare since I didn’t want to spend the money on a monthly card at the time. Stupid me.

Okay, it’s not a light show actually. I just kept my finger covering the flash while moving the camera down when depressing the shooting button. Pretty neat though, right?

With the trade of Carmelo Anthony and company to the New York Knicks, that meant a bevy of players would be headed in the opposite direction to Denver. Among them were Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, and my favorite Knick Danilo Gallinari. I stopped by Madison Square Garden late afternoon yesterday and they’d already removed the banners for those three players. They sure are moving quickly to erase any reminder that these three had been with the team. Now it’s just a question as to when banners for Anthony, Chauncey Billups, and one other player will go up in those empty spots.

Spending a few hours on my last day in Seattle just wandering around Bainbridge Island was a relaxing, idyllic time.

Few things in life are more beautiful than a perfectly poured stout on nitro.
