World Series or not, Rye is turning into A-Rod country.
We like our new neighbor, the sure-to-be American League most valuable player Alex Rodriguez, who has made his (big) home on Parsonage Point in Rye. We know his contract is up, but with a two year old daughter and a baby on the way, A-Rod should really consider staying. Alex, Rye is a great family town. Think about it. Call me and I’ll give you the inside line on the pre-schools.
And a couple signed baseballs would help the Osborn School Carnival (October 20th, mark your calendar) blow away last years $82,000 fund raising effort and be a step up from last year’s Ichiro baseball.
We also like Harrison Huskie and Yankee Manager Joe Torre. With signed head shots of Torre in every dry cleaner and restaurant in Mamaroneck, Harrison and Rye, what’s not to like about this Brooklyn kid who took the Bronx Bombers to 12 post seasons and four World Series. A resident of Muchmore Road in Harrison, Torre can be sighted at the Starbuck’s in downtown Rye or at Rye’s Coveleigh Club on Stuyvesant Avenue, around the corner from A-Rod’s house, where he and his wife are members.
And oh yeah, Boston sucks.
