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." Aside from the Yanks, he's a diehard NY Giants, NY Rangers and NY Knicks fan. He also likes long walks on the beach and cappuccinos and nearly died in Las Vegas.

Madison Square Garden – After giving up 17 goals in their previous three games, the Rangers finally managed to pick up two points last night. The win came in a shootout against the Carolina Hurricanes, a team that would struggle to make the playoffs in an over-50 men’s rec league. An embarrassing 6-3 home shellacking […]
NEW YORK, NY – Well, it looks like Buck Showalter is not messing around this post-season, as the Orioles ran roughshod over the Tigers in the ALDS opener last night. The Birds led the entire game and blew Detroit’s doors off with an 8-run explosion in the 8th inning. The O’s will look to go […]
