Wednesday: Angry Ward, who has admirers at the NY Times, is the quintessential angry sports fan but one exception... he's flat-out funny. And the angrier he gets, the more amusing his work becomes. Psychiatrists say, "Angry Ward's 'anger' is a direct result of "Bronx/Mets syndrome: growing up in the Bronx as a Mets fan." As if that weren't enough, his Minnesota North Stars abandoned him for Dallas, forcing him to embrace The Wild the way conservatives embrace Mitt Romney. While the Vikings tease him incessantly with flirtations of success, the Golden State Warriors, "Don't have a enough short, white angry guys but I don't dislike them... that much." A-Dubya is MTM's longest-tenured indentured servant, its Larry David and quite simply, The Franchise.

BRONX, NY – Banging this one out just before deadline on Tuesday. It’s my wife’s birthday, I’m holding off on dinner and my dog, Griffey, is doing everything in his power to get me to play fetch rather than slap together another lackluster column. Where in the wide, wide world of sports are my priorities? […]

BRONX, NY – It’s the All-Star Break. Time to kick back, relax, and reflect on all the time you’ve wasted watching sports and visiting this site and, yes, writing for this site. It’s also time to avoid watching the pointless Home Run Derby and instead watch old ’80s summer movies and drink Dark and Stormys. […]

BRONX, NY – All of this basketball free agency bed-hopping, babying of baseball players, and the now 12-month-a-year NFL news cycle have got me longing for a simpler time. A time when the Mets played on WOR Channel 9, the Yankees played on WPIX 11, and Gilligan’s Island reruns played on WNEW Channel 5. Back […]

BRONX, NY – As Brother Junoir Blaber said yesterday, baseball is in full swing… but there will be plenty of time to talk about that. The 2016 Presidential race is also in full swing- even in non-swing states – and since this contest is down to two teams (sorry, Bernie) let’s stick with it for a […]

NEW YORK, NY – If my life ended tomorrow, I wouldn’t be too thrilled. But I also wouldn’t feel that I got cheated. I’ve been drawing breath on this big blue marble for almost a half century now and I’ve done and seen some pretty amazing things. Along the way, I jumped out of a perfectly […]

NEW YORK, NY – We’re barely halfway through 2016, and already it’s been a brutal year for deaths. David Bowie? Prince? Alan Rickman? Abe Vigoda? Death has been truly thinning the ranks of the entertainment industry, and sports is no different. Just recently we lost two giants in Muhammad Ali and Gordie Howe. And even one […]

BRONX, NY – The Yankees game was on the other night, so I instead decided to read an interesting article on sea lice. Then, just like that, I finished the fascinating piece on our misunderstood microscopic saltwater pranksters, and the Yankees game was still on. Meanwhile the Mets game was postponed due to rain, yielding the […]

BRONX, NY – Watching sports on TV is often like a truly awful drug experience or a week-long bender drinking nothing but Milwaukee’s Best. Short Matt and I have a friend (let’s call him Mickey) who was the first to disdainfully ask: “How can you spend all this time watching sports on TV?” At the […]

BRONX, NY – After two straight days of basking in the glow of D.J. Eberle’s Hot Takes (*cough* Cavs overrated. *cough*), I’m back to restore order and make everyone miserable again. As I tap this out on the keyboard, Matt Harvey is looking in the mirror, wondering what went wrong – again – after initially being […]

BRONX, NY – It’s been quiet around these parts lately… too quiet. What with JG Clancy in semi-retirement, Fluffy the Narwahl with his face buried in The Racing Form, and Randy Levine getting his hot tub out of dry dock, things have been getting as stagnant as the Mets offense – which was fortunately double […]
