Well, okay. Not with Mo. I’m exaggerating. But you all know that Mo is my favorite player in the Universe (current). So the first thing I did after I booked my flight to New York for this weekend’s visit with my mother, sister and brother-in-law was to make a reservation for us at Mo’s New York Grill for Saturday night. Since it’s too late to be at any of the playoff games or the ticker-tape parade, I figured the next best thing would be to eat at Mo’s and soak up all the Yankee-ness. Here’s a tour.
I certainly hope they’ve updated their wall art since that video was shot. I want to see a framed photo of this.
When I went on the restaurant’s web site, I noticed that one of the entrees is a “Yankee Burger.” Does that mean it’ll have pinstriped grill marks?
Or that the burger will be world championship size?
But food aside, the real question is whether Mo himself ever shows up at his place. Now that the season is over, he and his sore ribcage could be in Panama enjoying the sun. Or he could be feeling antsy with no games to save and wander into the restaurant for a little adoration. Assuming the latter is remotely possible, I decided to rehearse what I’d say if I met him. Did I leave anything out?
P.S. Speaking of Mo, how cool is this Nike ad? Commenter Mike just sent it to me.
