Please correct your spelling of Long Island. Jerry Seinfeld (Massapequa/Matza-pizza native) already gives us a bad rep.

Done but still incorrect above. Jerry & not Billy Joel (Oyster Bay) how can one mess up being married to Cristie is beyond me?

Many people know that the Crossmen were formed in 1975 as a merger corps between two long-time southeast Pennsylvania rivals, the Keystone Regiment and the 507th Hornets. They may also know that the n

Phantom Regiment. Everyone else is competing for second place, IMO. Though I also like 27th Lancers for obvious reasons 

And to think that the name originally under consideration was the Rockford Rangers, a tribute to the proliferation of dutch elm trees throughout the city. Certain members, including Jim Wren, did not

What happened to The Sounds of Suffolk Association?

P.S. Billy Joel has been as much in Sag Harbor with his "boat" as he is in Oyster Bay. But she lives there and boat is now sold. Now he is living more at Madison Square Garden. Cue Cavaliers 2007 show.

Right next store to Billy is where Chuck Dolan, Jimmy Dolan's dad lived, who founded HBO and sold it to start Cablevision/Optimum. I was on the engineering staff and went to parties in Oyster Bay. However, whenever Christie was in the yard we took notice. Small World.

yes, I know Mr. Dolan. You don't miss the anniversary party on the 4th of July at his harborside estate in Oyster Bay Cove. Not bad for a kid from Parma, Ohio once home of the Caballeros. Perhaps you also know the Bill Quinns of Cablevision. She was guard capt. for Medford Grenadiers in her day; Paul Litteau, famous DCI judge and HoFer, is godfather to the"kids." 

Hopkins was always mad that I knew people like that and never hit their wallets for the corps but instead kept Catholic schools and food banks open through their generosity. 128 kids vs 1000.

Wow Bill Quinn CTO was my boss would send me out on secret missions evaluating Cable Systems they wanted to purchase all over the place, ran systems in NJ,, CT, Boston, Chicago & NYC for Bill and his successor Wilt Hillenbrand.  Also was friends with Jimmy Dolan who is more my age. He was a huge Grateful Dead fan as was I. How nice is it for your dad to own Madison Sq Garden & Radio City Music Hall. I just never learned how to kiss-up Jimmy would get mad that I left his Grateful Dead skybox party to be on the floor for the 2an set, something about being on the fifty even for the dead. Nice memories out on Long Island Sound on Chuck's yacht, The Bravo named after his cable channel. They are great people and the Dolans really knew how to reward their trusted employees. Now I am hearing itis not that way anymore.

 If you keep it up, I'll ask BRASSO if he and I could start dropping names from our past.

So not to take up terabits of space ask him to just name folks that are still alive, BRASSO knows all, I pale in comparison.
