Blown Away

Over the weekend, three rainstorms converged over the New York area to create a swirling mess of wind and rain. I had the fortune to be spending Saturday night at Giants Stadium for the MetroStars - Real Salt Lake MLS Season Opener. Outside the stadium, light stanchions shook in the rain. Small children were blown away from their parents. Parking attendants were surly.

Inside the stadium, goal kicks traveled 20 feet before getting cut down by the wind. Longballs blew far in front of intended players. Corner kicks went nowhere near the goals. The match finished in a scoreless draw, which was a fair result for both teams.

The Metro (0-0-1, 1pt, 4th place) takes a week off before facing Kansas City (1-0-0, 3pts, 1st place) at the Swamp on April 16th.

-Fashion has come along way over the past few decades. There is a lot more Fake Handbags today than there was say fifty years ago. In our grandparents' generation "dressing up" meant wearing some new clothes made from the finest cotton. Mind you there was not much choice for material beyond cotton and silk, let alone anything called designer clothes! By the time our parents were growing up the world began to enjoy tweed, corduroy and some mixed textiles. They also became acquainted with pioneer designers in the field of clothing and apparel. Our generation has seen designer fashion really coming alive with there being a Fake Handbag or brand for just about anything. One of the foremost fashion accessories today are purses. Have you ever considered buying wholesale fashion purses and Designer inspired purses?
