Bwoglines: Additions And Subtractions Edition

Out with the old, in with the new

Out with the old, in with the new(ish)

Addition: Seemingly positive Columbia football coverage in the local paper. Coach Bagnoli is also bringing something new to the program: a philosophy of fun. (New York Times)

Subtraction: Media magnate James Dolan and his family announced they will sell Cablevision to European firm Altice for $17.7 billion, including the assumption of debt. Knicks fans, don’t hold your breath: Dolan wants to focus more on AMC and Madison Square Garden Company. (Wall Street Journal)

Addition: Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, NYC’s midtown marvel, just finished a $177 million restoration in anticipation of Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States — he’ll be in the city next week. A massive part of the massive project? The removal, cleaning and replacement of St. Patrick’s 9,000 organ tubes. (ABC News)

Subtraction: Brian Williams, after telling a flagrant lie about his experience in the War in Iraq, was suspended by NBC. Comedian Steve Rannazzisi, known for his role as Kevin McArthur in “The League,” was dropped by Buffalo Wild Wings from its commercials after he admitted fibbing about working in the twin towers on 9/11. That exaggeration might just belong in a league of its own. (USA Today)
