Junoir Blaber is from Ghana but was transplanted to the Bronx as a young lion chaser. Blaber is the Rain Man of Meet The Matts and is a featured contributor on MTM global partner, Rugby Wrap Up. The name "Junoir" is not a cool African name. Instead, Blaber mis-typed "Junoir" on his Facebook page. But proving that two wrongs indeed do make a right, he embraced his new persona - [June-noire]... Manute Bol is his uncle and his teams are the Mets, Jets, Knicks & NY Rangers... And Manchester United. He knows soccer. [Vomit]. P.s... He has webbed toes and came be followed on Twitter here: @JunoirBlaber

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – It is amazing how despite not caring for the NFL or Winter Olympics, you are forced to mention them when you write a weekly sports article. Especially this time of the year, because there is not much to talk about. Sure, I could talk about Rugby or the upcoming MLS season […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS –  This was a week where I had no idea what to write about. The sports scene just seems so bare after the Super Bowl. Football is over, Spring Training hasn’t started, the Rangers are selling, the Knicks season is officially over, having lost their best player, and I really don’t […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – This has been one hectic week. The taskmaster known as Short Matt had me working hard the last week and a half covering rugby. Yet, he still reminds me that I am due on the hill here on Saturday.  So here I am, cranking out my fourth article this week […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – This was the first week in a while that I wasn’t scrambling to find topics for the article or even a song. The song came to me rather easily but I will get to that. Courtesy of this wonderful website, two of my topics were easy to pick and the […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – I got a Mini-Matt text last night. It was a nice/gentle reminder that I was up today.  I laughed because I already knew and had been preparing for my piece. I wanted to talk about my Bills’ experience, and seeing the reaction up close, but so many articles are out […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – My compliance lasted 1 week. I went to bed and thought no Mini-Matt text, so I must be good. Got the text this morning, going “Guy! Guy?!” So guess what? I am back… A little hungover and a lot tired but let’s get to it. We will use my tried-and-true […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Apparently, I have been made a full-timer again. I didn’t ask for it, nor do I want it but since it is the holiday season and I am feeling charitable, I will comply for now. So, until I quit in protest or take a knee (see what I did there?), […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – This is no longer pitch-hitting; I have been inserted in the everyday line-up, except Coach Mini-Matt won’t tell me that because he enjoys pretending that being a MTM writer is not volunteering to stay at the Hotel California. Anyway, let’s get to the reason you are all here: to read […]
