New York Minute...

We're getting a little psyched for the upcoming BlogHer conference because this summer BlogHer is coming to New York City! We are gonna represent our home town! Anyway, since we have New York on the brain, we thought we throw out a quick little link roundup about some stuff (both good and bad) that's happening in New York lately.

Good New York News

  • Bye Bye Rush Limbaugh!
We hear that Limbaugh has sold his Manhattan condo. We hope this means that he is leaving our city for good (like he promised last year) and not coming back! Good riddance! Get out of our city! [Wall Street Journal]
  • Thierry Henry Joins the Red Bulls 
New York's hilariously named soccer team has signed Thierry Henry, French striker from Barcelona. He and captain Juan Pablo Angel are expected to give the Red Bulls "the most dynamic duo" in Major League Soccer. [Daily News]
  • New York is Full of Surprises, Including Old Boats!
A 32-foot-long ship hull, that apparently was used in the 18th century as part of the fill that extended lower Manhattan into the Hudson River, was found buried at the World Trade Center site! [Associated Press via Yahoo! News]

Bad New York News
  • The Yankees Lose Two Legends in One Week
Bob Sheppard, public announcer and "the voice of the Yankees" died Sunday at age 99 and George Steinbrenner, owner of the Yankees for three decades, died Tuesday of a heart attack at age 80. Rest in Peace. [Associated Press via Yahoo! News]
  •  New Yorkers Are Still Freaking Out Over a Mosque
 Almost a month after we wrote about "outraged" people against a "mosque" "at" ground zero, people are still being Islamophobic, xenophobic, racist assholes about it. A few days ago the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission met to discuss trying to designate the building a landmark... all to prevent a "citadel of Islamic supremacy to be erected in its place." Ugh. [Gawker]
    • The Secret Life is Tarnishing Our Reputation One Episode at a Time
    This season of OMM-favorite The Secret Life of the American Teenager partially takes place in New York City, because teen mom Amy Jergens is at some NYC teen mom band camp. Ugh, get out of our city! [ABC Family]
    •  The National Organization of Marriage is Coming...
    On Saturday, NOM is coming to Albany as part of its "Summer for Marriage: One Man, One Woman" country-wide tour. Ugh, get out of our state capital! [Courage Campaign]
