hey charles... i figured out how to get that new building you want... it's so simple... jay jacobs here by the way... if you forgot me i'm the idiot dem politician (as op posed to an idiot repub politician) who helped defeat the new coliseum vote last summer and even proposed PSL's to mike francessa... yeah i know that was really stupid of me... what the fuck was i smoking that day? but i digress... my idea is this... i can't believe we didn't think of it sooner... all you gotta do is pay for it. yeah... it's that simple... just write nassau a check for 320 million dollars... give or take a few bucks and bam!... we got ourselves a brand new shiny coliseum... so obvious huh? and we can start building immediately... i know i know...you've lost a few bucks already with buying the team, saving them from moving and fixing up the place even though you don't own it with your own money and that smg deal really screwed you over and the losses with or without good attendance and all that money you threw away over your lighthouse thingamajig... what like 400 million you're in to it so far?... so what's another 320 million? and i klnow you've been lied to and screwed over by us over the last 10 years but get this... we'll toss in 80 mill or so ourselves and... you know... get our money back on taxing patrons there... but you? you lucky guy... you get something great in return for giving us this money... we will give you a really good deal on rent... oh and do it on your american express so you get the points... see... win win. just call me back... number is 516 beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep"
