Well, no one can accuse Bobby Valentine of going all Bloomberg on this latest storm out East.
Just weeks after taking a post as public safety director in Stamford, Conn., the ESPN analyst and former New York Mets manager was spotted directing traffic on a snowy street in his hometown on Thursday morning. That he's taking his duties seriously should come as no surprise — Valentine was born in Stamford, owns businesses there and is considered a local hero. No way would he sit home with his fellow citizens in distress.
Reporter: "Bobby, what are you doing out there?"
Bobby Valentine: (blank stare) "This is my job."
Anyway, good for Bobby. The loss of all the teams that passed him up for a job this offseason is clearly the gain of that lost woman in the Chrysler Sebring.
