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."

BRONX, NY – We’ve been losing a hell of a lot of talented people lately and it’s starting to piss me off. On Monday Harold Ramis passed away at his home near Chicago at the way-too-young age of 69. It seems for the past four years he’d been battling something called autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. I […]
BRONX, NY – I had a few ideas kicking around for today’s post but none of them seemed hefty enough to carry an entire column. Instead we’ll just go with a mixed bag. Let’s get right to it. Shirley, You Can’t be Serious. Sad news yesterday that my first boyhood crush, Shirley Temple, boarded the […]
