Guilty! Niagara University Rugby Team: The Downfall of Junoir Blaber!

Junoir Blaber Niagara RugbyNIAGARA, NY – We woke this morning to find that Junoir Blaber’s column was not posted. After going through the regular steps when such an occurrence takes place – like seeing if it wasn’t scheduled to publish or there was some issue with WordPress, we put “Writer Down” protocol into place. But alas, our phone calls to the seediest of the Bronx’s gin mills proved fruitless. Then finally, faster than you can say Malaysian Black Box, we got a beeping sound… Actually, a ringing sound – on the MTM Emergency Hotline for Missing WritersIt was Blaber.

He. Was. Alive.

The Public Professor and Junoir Blaber pose-down!

But barely… or barely sober.

See, he went to his Niagara University Rugby Alumni Game this weekend at his alma mater, Niagara University, and was calling from the Emergency Room in the town’s hospital. Seems he was over-served and then fell into a Hangover IV muck of blurred recall. And this was at 8 AM this morning!!!  Something about falling… not being allowed to sleep… and yes, still going to post… yet still drunk.

We can’t wait!

In the meantime…

The NY Rangers lost to the Flyers, as their power-play and penatly-kill failed King Henry. That series is now notched at 2 games apiece…

Then there was a Curtis Granderson sighting at Shea Field… as the NY Mets did the unthinkable and rallied for a win in the 9th… at home! The Marlins are investigating – they smell something fishy taking place and while the Kardashians were in the park, it was not them.

The Brooklyn Nets of Manhattan held on in what was actually an entertaining NBA game, besting the Raptors of Rob Ford’s Chranta, 100 or so points to less than that. Here’s the recap.

Pooholes T ShirtAnd finally, the Yankees and their suddenly shabby/old pitching staff lost to the Orange County Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and their equally over-paid and aging lineup. Even Poo-Holes went yard – seems he’s got a little “juice” in his step and swing this year. 39-year-old Hiroki Kuroda served up two taters and couldn’t make it through five. Hank Steinbrenner puffed on a Pall Mall and mouthed the words, “Ruh-roh” from his box. Stay tuned…

Hal Steinbrenner confesses to priest... or is that Brother Hank?

    You lost me a Niagara rugby. You got me back with the Rangers losing (heh) and the Mets winning again. Let’s Go Mets Go!

      You may want to refresh your page to see the just-in picture from the ER.

        In the Public Prof/Junoir pose down the shadow of the prof makes it look like Junoir is wearing a Mansiere !
        A’s back in first and I saw the end of the Mets game. AW – your 75 wins are a lock – the fact that they had just blown the lead will be ignored.

    Hank does look like a priest! haha And the Mets should be ashamed for not getting more runs for Wheeler..

    • Meet The Matts

      Marty… a win is a win. 13-10 and one of the hotter teams in baseball at 7-3 in their last 10… Meanwhile, NYC’s other team…

    Junoir looks like he could easily write a column. I’m guessing he lost another cell phone.

  • Preacher Collins

    Let’s Go Mets..and Nets! Feeling like the Braves aren’t getting good coverage here since Preacher Collins went into early MTM retirement last fall. They’re 15-7 and Craig Kimbrel is 8 saves away from breaking John Smoltz’s franchise record of 154. Perhaps Preacher Collins can opt to be a special MTM reporter at the next Braves – Mets match up in Citi in mid-July??

      I am all for that! Testify, Preacher!
