I'm gonna be completely honest here. I was invited to this event by a friend at Vivid, but I declined. Not because I'm judging strip clubs, but because I just feel bad for Doc. This Santa outfit could have easily been replaced with a clown costume.
I want nothing but the best for Doc. Brian and I talk about this topic often on Orange and Blue Thing, and while we always hope that Doc gets his act together for good, that never seems to be the case.
It's pretty common knowledge that Doc missed the 1986 parade because he was off getting high somewhere on Long Island. Back in April (for a separate publicity stunt), he was then given the key to the City at a ceremony recreating the parade for turning his life around. Afterwards the truth came out that it was all for a television series in development. Lame.

I totally get that times are tough and he's trying to pay some bills, but there absolutely has to be a better way when you're trying to clean up not only your image, but your life. In this TMZ video, Doc says you need to, "surround yourself with good people." In that case, he needs to look in the mirror and cut out whoever in his life that told him this was a good idea.
Let me be clear: If you have Twitter and don't retweet #CalliesMetsProm, you suck.
For baseball fans, the gap from November to the end of February can feel like an eternity. But this past Saturday, the Queens Baseball Convention (QBC) at Katch in Astoria took the edge off for Mets die-hards.
