Hackensack Discussion / Re: My favorite paper is not having a good day
« on: January 09, 2022, 11:17:20 AM »
Kind of a large boo-boo on the front page of today's sport's section:

Last April, the Jets traded quarterback Sam Darnold. A few weeks later, they selected quarterback Zach Wilson with the #2 overall draft pick.

This article was about Wilson's best plays so far this season, which ends for the Jets today.

The first sentence tells you what the play was about. The last sentence tells you that the QB who is no longer with the team made the play.

Oops!

I saw this yesterday. Let's see.............a tent set up at the Middle School with a line snaking from it across the parking lot out onto the State St sidewalk and around the corner going up Passaic St?

They must be giving away Times Square New Year's Eve tickets so people can worry about catching COVID when they go there and then come back to be tested?

That MUST be it!

"Happy New Year......Today's paper is your last of 2021 AND your first of 2022"

So this is a thing now, huh? Should we expect the same on Presidents' Day, Valentines Day and National Pie Day (January 23)?

This happened two days ago (12/21) at the Greater Alliance Credit Union. From my living room, I could see something going on at around 3pm. Two team vehicles were parked near State St and guys seemed to be armed and looked ready to storm the place.

By the time I got outside and ID'd the vehicle, they were all inside the building. I walked through the parking lot and saw them all in the lobby. Maybe they all needed Christmas money from the ATM? I didn't know what was going on and thought maybe this wasn't the best time to be taking pictures, so I went home.

At 4pm, they all filtered out, got in the vehicles and left.

The next day, I called Greater Alliance's HQ in Paramus. They had no clue about why this team was there, but said that they vacated the building 3 months ago. Their sign is still there, so I guess no one else has taken over the place.

I guess that means that there was no money for the team in the ATM.

I still have no idea what this was all about.

"Merry Christmas........We're not publishing on 12/24 or 12/25!"

See for yourself - it's right in the top of the front page of today's paper (below - click to enlarge). Look at the date...............have you ever seen a 3-day publication date before? It's as if all the news that occurs today, tomorrow and Saturday is included in today's paper. How prescient of them!

Merry Christmas from The Record - Friend of the people it serves...............unless it's a holiday.

On Thursday (12/9), I saw these 3 choppers coming in (first two pix). Saturday's weather was really bad for long-distance shooting, but I did see the lead chopper in the distance - somewhere in the Teterboro-Metlife area. It's a terrible shot, but my question is: is that a ferris wheel on the far left? Where is that?

I didn't hear any F-18s Thursday or Friday, but I did on Saturday before 3pm. They sounded like they may have been coming from the north of me and not from Teterboro. The last 2 crappy-looking shots were all that I could get.

Some fan inside the stadium got a better view:
