Macker Mania … and Friday lunch!


Brian Golden

Hard to believe it’s Gus Macker time already, let alone the Fourth of July earlier this week, and – as usual – summer is flying by way too fast. Needless to say, it’s going to be a hot one this year, with temperatures up there in the 90s, so stay hydrated all you Macker Maniacs and have fun! While I’ve never participated in the popular 3-on-3 tournament, it really is amazing how many people it brings into town.

And now for some truly fantastic news … Friday lunch! With Sports Editor Pat Newell on vacation (lucky guy), Jeff’s taking a break from his Friday’s off (not to mention our special Macker edition needs to be assembled), which means … well … Friday lunch! Can you tell I’m excited? I’m even using exclamation points!

Moving on, I finally managed to get my desk and cubicle cleaned up following my month-long occupation of the Chenango County Courthouse. Things were a bit … cluttered … to say the least, and I must admit it’s nice to have things looking nice and tidy (for the most part) once again.

With that said, here’s my Ridiculous Online ‘30 Seconds’ Post of the Day, brought to you by Man from Norwich …
“Who cares about mistakes a lawyer made, it’s the evidance that vounts tells the tale. It has spoke the truth three times now. Strike three, your out!”

Ok, this is going to be a tough one, but I think what Man from Norwich is trying to say is, “Who cares about mistakes a lawyer made, it’s the evidence that counts, that tells the tale. It has spoken three times now. Strike three, you’re out.”

Granted, I could be wrong, but evidance was obviously supposed to be evidence and I have no idea what a vount is. As for the your, you’re issue … no comment.
