Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Another reason to vote against Charlie Crist: his pitching is clearly outside of the 'mainstream'


After Charlie Crist loses the Senate election in 25 days to Marco Rubio and leaves office -and Tallahassee in the rear-view mirror for good- Crist will move up to one of his wife's homes in the New York City area, where he'll become yet another foolish Mets fan, and after listening to too much nonsensical sports radio, he will become a chronic serial caller to WFAN.

"Hello Charlie in Westchester County, you're on the air..."
Ha! Ha! Ha!

In this video, ABC News correspondent John Berman discusses presidential and celebrity ceremonial first pitches (and foul pitches), as well as his 'first pitch' at a PawSox game at McCoy Stadium in Pawtuckett, Rhode Island, as always, the AAA farm club of the Red Sox.

One of my substitute teachers at N.M.B. High School, Tony Torchia, was easily one of the most popular teachers at the school whenever he was there, especially with the male students, and it wasn't just because he was friendly and engaging and... the PawSox manager in 1975.

When the Red Sox played the Reds in the World Series that fall, naturally, he flew up to Boston to be at the Sox home games at Fenway Park.

Well, to give you an idea of what a great guy Mr. Torchia was, he brought back a World Series program for me, only one of my most-treasured sports collectibles EVER.

He was a classy guy!
