Have a good weekend

As usual, I have had an absolutely fantastic time batting it around with you all this week. But I'm heading out now to play golf, and then into yet another of the great summer weekends on which we all have the same team colors.

I'll sprinkle in a couple of little treats here and there throughout the weekend. You can always count on the Saturday mailbag, as you know. But for the most part I'll be celebrating our nation's birthday, Ridgewood-style. Maybe I'll see some of you at the parade.

So fly those Stars and Stripes, fire up those grills and have a cold one on me. I'll be back next week for more NFC East fussin' and feudin'. Who knows? By then we may even have a new labor deal. Naaaah ... that's just too crazy to hope for.

Or is it?
