Imagine Casey Stengel, after managing the magnificent Yankees of The Clipper, Mickey, Yogi, Whitey, Roger, Elston, Moose, Billy, Allie, Eddie, Old Reliable, Cletus, the Scooter, now managing the hapless Mets and looking down his bench, and looking down once again, to find no one who could play the game. Now imagine me, in my sixth year in the Auburn Hills/Rochester area, thinking of where to have dinner.
And yet, and yet.
Fresco’s is a great pizzeria with pies that a New Yorker would wait in line for. A pie that would not cause looks in Siena. And yet, there are no lines, no crowds. My concern, it is true, is selfish.
Have you eyes and do not see? Taste buds but do not taste?
