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 – Welcome to the Good Easter edition of the Rain Man Rants. Good Easter because it is after Good Friday but before Easter Sunday so, I call it Good Easter Saturday.

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – When bat last in the order, you have to be creative with what you talk about. Most major events have discussed to death, so you usually get previews and stuff that happened on Thursday or Friday. Occasionally, I scan the papers and use social media but I got lucky this […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – I should have been done with this piece much earlier but I got caught up with trying to correct people in the politics section of two separate internet sports forums. You wouldn’t believe the number of idiots there are on the Internet (no wise cracks!). But lucky for me I […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Following up yesterday’s piece is not easy but nothing in life is. With that, let’s get to the fun stuff by focusing on the Olympics (spit!) and NCAA Basketball, especially its king of corruption.

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 […]
