The Keanes vs. Pinocchio
I got a report from the local Democratic committee reorganization meeting held this past Saturday. Tim Whalen, brother in law to Florida resident Jim Keane, was nominated to replace Little Antoine Kennedy for the do-nothing job of Erie County Legislator. Jim Keane can now make his moves, create more jobs (for his relatives), and then head back to the sunshine state until petitions come out again in June.
I'd be charitable if I told you Whalen reads on a 3rd grade level. But you'll find that out soon enough (assuming Brian Higgins and Keane let him speak in public). He needs to be defeated next September. We need to get an updated list of every politically appointed job the Keanes and their relatives now hold. The residents I know have had enough. Most know their(the Keanes) gig is to get as many jobs for their relatives at the expense of the rest of the community. For those of you who don't like me, I hate to tell you but this is not new or classified information here. It is the big con the Keanes have been pulling for the last 30 years.
Whalen's opponent Pinocchio Petrucci bowed out at the last minute, but not before dropping a few whoppers in his concession speech. He said something about being on the board of directors of the South Buffalo Youth Soccer Association. Tom Finn runs the South Buffalo Soccer Club, which has over 700 participants. I can assure you Pinocchio is not on their board of directors. Petrucci was talking about a made up group (it's him and one other guy). They have no players or teams. Did I mention I'm on the board of directors of the South Buffalo Equestrian Club? I don't know how to ride a horse but what's the difference? As long as people are dumb enough to believe me, I guess I can make that claim. I know as much about horseback riding as Pinocchio knows about soccer.
He also talked about being very busy. I know he's busy kissing Ray McGurn's ass on a full time basis, but that's about it. He mentioned something about his daughter being on an Olympic development soccer team. The team Lou is talking about is based in Hamburg and all the players are from Western New York. When Pinocchio's daughter was 11, the Hamburg coach contacted me about any 12 year olds we had. I had three names but their parents weren't willing to shell out thousands of dollars to play. I didn't really think about Lou's daughter. Although she was a decent player, I figured the team would consist of mostly 12 year olds. I didn't know they took pretty much anyone willing to pay.
She is a great kid and a very good player. However, right now, we have three twelve year olds in our South Buffalo program, who are as good, if not better. It's funny. When Patrick Kane was in the Olympic Development program for hockey, I had a few conversations with his father, and he never felt the need to mention it once. He just let his son's play speak for itself. Lou, you really need to stop embellishing and start telling the truth. You have a very vivid imagination. Most of your friends read my blog religiously and are aware of this. "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive".
Don't worry. Your friendly blogger is watching and reporting the truth. Soon, we'll be getting 5,000 visitors each week, who will be exposed to the tiresome, predictable playbook of the South Buffalo entitled class. The cream always rises to the top...
Hey, you'd be pretty angry too if you spent thousands of years floating around in the Phantom Zone. I seriously doubt this guy would take a back seat to the Keanes, either...
