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.

NEW YORK, NY – Happy International Workers’ Day to all of the hard-working folks that visit this site on an way-t00-regular basis. While our short bald leader is probably out somewhere flouncing around a May Pole, I thought it would probably be a good time to address the Jason Collins Story. In case you were [...]
NEW YORK, NY – It’s been a wild week already… and it’s only Wednesday (well, Tuesday as I write this). The Cheeseman (Cheesy Bruin) covered the horrible Boston Marathon bombings yesterday, which were followed almost immediately by my mom getting her feet tangled up in front of her building and hitting the deck like Michael Spinks [...]
NEW YORK, NY – As Grote2DMax pointed out yesterday, there’s plenty going on in sports these days. But today I’m going to shy away from this week’s limitless supply of popular topics – The Unbeatable Knicks, Tiger at The Masters, Anything About the Yankees – to instead focus on New York’s new Jeremy Lin and a [...]
