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."

GOTHAM, USA – It’s the best time of year for a hockey addict like myself. (And it’s pretty good right now for Mutts fans). Indeed, Gotham is humming as both the New York hockey teams took command and The Dark Knight returned to clean up The Mess. The NHL playoffs kicked off with the Islanders […]
