Different Matt is our cunning Cornell grad/rugby player. "Diff" joined us just after the switch from being "Mets only" to an all-sports stop. He's a Yankee fan; thus he was "different."

MSG, New York – Wednesday night the Rangers punched their ticket to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a hard fought 2-1 win over the Flyers. For their part, the Flyers get to go back to their sucktastic city and watch the rest of the playoffs on television. The Blueshirts were the better […]
