You might be wondering what transplanted northeasterners and snowbirds are talking about when a March blizzard hits the Tri-State area.
How about what the Mets starting lineup is going to look like in the 2018 & 2019 seasons?
No kidding. After a wind-impacted round of golf at the lovely, welcoming Meadowood Golf Club in Ft. Pierce, Florida, that was exactly the lead topic of the day once all match and side bets were settled.
The outcome looked like this:
- Brandon Nimmo
- Yoenis Cespedes
- Michael Conforto
- 3B. Gavin Cecchini
- Amed Rosario
- 2B. Neil Walker
- 1B. Dom Smith
- Kevin Plawecki (or possible big name free agent)
The next topic that came up was the NCAA hoops tourney.
To start with, there was plenty of bickering about seeding and who is playing where. Among the comments:
“Villanova has an easy path back to Final Four which was paved by the selection committee which wants to see a repeat since no team has done so since Florida back in 2007.”
“Seton Hall is one and done like last year.”
“Can you believe how strong the Pac 12 is with teams like Arizona, Oregon and UCLA?” “Two of these three could get to the Final Four.”
“When will Kansas implode?”
“Are the Tar Heels and the Dukies really that good to make it to the Monday night game?”
“Can Princeton and Northwestern win a game or two?
After about an hour of lively discussion the only consensus was that nobody cared about the World Baseball Classic.
