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 – I was not surprised that I had to write but I am exhausted. My daughter has been wreaking havoc with the times she wakes all of us up. I expect her to sleep til 8 and she is up at 5:30 and so on. So today’s piece will be a […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Happy  Saturday everyone. I want to say to my fellow MTM writer, The Dude aka Replacement Matt, we won’t be fighting. Short Matt seems to think this is Junior HS and he can go “oooh you gonna take that?” And we will be fighting. I got no beef with you […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS: I usually describe writing for Meet the Matts as my personal Hotel California. It was easy to say yes as I’d love a chance to blog about my opinions on things going on in the world of sport. Since I began I’ve tried to quit 3 times and somehow I still […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS: It is a good sports news week… if you ignore the likelihood Florida prosecutors will release video of Robert Kraft’s tug job [gag, vomit]. Sorry to throw up throw in that tidbit but it is arguably numero uno on the List of Things I Can Die Happy Never Seeing. Anyway, let’s […]
