• Joe Torre & Phil Simms Sighting

    From the Bigelow Tea Blog – really, the Bigelow Tea Blog!

    Phil Simms (former Quarterback of the NY Giants) and his wife Diana as well as Joe Torre (manager of the Yankees) and his wife Ali came to spend a day at Bigelow Tea here in Fairfield, Connecticut. All I can say is wow! It was probably one of the most exciting days for our employees that I can ever remember.

    We first did a plant tour where everyone in the plant got a chance to shake hands and say hello to the sports Icons, we then followed up with a Q&A session where all our employees got to ask questions where the candid answers and the excitement in the room actually gave me the chills. It was amazing to see all of our employees have direct contact with Joe and Phil…it was beyond words.

    We then finished up with departmental photos with the two gentlemen. The smiles filled the room. When the photos were complete, we finished up with a lovely lunch. I think everyone had a great time. It was even more special that Joe and Phil brought their wives; Diana Simms and Ali Torre were complete delights.

    I wonder if Torre told Simms about anything big happening in Yankeeland this week? If only the green tea leaves could talk!

      Another piece of irresponsible, or rather biased journalism of Buster Olney. Buster Baloney goes through ProSportsDaily before writing his ESPN Insider articles. In today’s, he writes:
      “In the end, John Lopez writes, Andy Pettitte was no different than Terrell Owens.”
      This piece of writing (done obviously by a Houston writer) is so ridiculous and has no bearing on the current news usually found in Olney’s Insider writings, it took someone as twisted as Peter Gammons, Olney, to get his jollies from it, and put it in his article. I bet when Olney read this article, he probably spooged all over. That sick F***.

      There is a Blogger on this site with the screen name “susanmullen.” If you click on her name, it will take you to her blog site.
      Although she does not express herself correctly, she has the right idea. I find it to be a good read every now and then when I either want a laugh or when I want to read the point of view from another person who sees the evident hatred of the Yankees as I do.
      I’m not sure if I’m allowed to suggest another person’s site, but I think some of you would enjoy it.
