The Sod File

My name is Andrew, most call me Andy, some call me Sod and others (namely my brothers) call me names that cannot be printed here. I’m 37 years old and live in Lehigh Acres, Florida, with my lovely wife Tina and our yellow labrador retriever Patty. My wife is the best thing that’s ever happened to me, bar none, and the only person who can talk me off the ledge when the Mets (or any of my other sports teams) let me down. I’m blessed with wonderful parents and two great brothers who, despite our incessant good-natured digs at one another, get along tremendously. I’m also one of the lucky ones who gets along with their in-laws, it’s great to have two sets of parents who love and care about you. Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff and on to the heart of the matter – the reason this blog exists.
I’ve been a Mets fan since 1985 (ah the days of Doc and Darryl, Mookie and Lenny, Mex and the Kid) and have been there through good times and bad. Unfortunately, the good times never seem to last long and the heartbreaks get worse and worse as years go by.
This page is dedicated to all the long suffering Mets fans out there, who stick with this team despite heartbreak after heartbreak. Cubs fans know a lot about this, but at least they’ve got Wrigley Field to fall back on. The Mets find new ways to lose, new excruciating ways to choke away seasons, yet we come back time and again.
But this blog won’t be just about the Mets (we would all jump off the nearest bridge if that was the case). I’ll be writing about my other favorite teams (Giants, Knicks, Penn State football, Bloomsburg University sports) and sports in general. I’m also a huge music nerd, so I’ll be talking about the latest happenings regarding my many favorite artists, with the Beatles always being No. 1 on my list. I also plan to dabble in current events, things happening in my life and just about anything else that pops into my brain.
Thank you for visiting the site and as always, Let’s Go Mets!!!!

      The music portion of the program will be coming soon. I’m sure I’ll have a lot to say about the upcoming Beatles remasters. Right now, I’m in full-on Mets bitchfest mode. But I will dabble into other realms soon enough. By the way, I rang your doorbell and ran away the other day. Just thought you should know….

    P.S. I would like a review of the upcoming Miley Cyrus tour.
