THAT REMINDS ME OF…

17 Comments

By Rex O’Rourke Suffern, NY – I was cruising down the road listening to The Cure Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (which holds up very well after all these years) and it reminded me of Morganna The Kissing Bandit. That reminded me of the kid that got tasered in Philly Monday Night. That reminded […]

AND THE REXY GOES TO…

0 Comments

By Rex O’Rourke Lexington, KY – It was an interesting week in sports. Tiger Woods missed the cut I thought he’d miss two weeks ago. The Mutts had quite a homestand and a great first night in Philly only to run into Roy Halladay on Saturday. The Yankees visited the White House. Super Saver won […]

THE ART OF MAILING IT IN

18 Comments

by Rex O’Rourke Procrastination, Ohio – Let’s face it folks. I’ve been mailing it in. I don’t come up with an idea until Sunday at “God Knows When”. Most weeks the thought of writing this flippin’ column is vexing at best; so I mail it in. When it comes to writing a weekly article, I’m […]

IT'S TIME… OR IS IT?

20 Comments

by Rex “The Mailman” O’Rourke PANICSVILLE, USA – Show of hands. Is it time for Omar Minaya to go? Not withstanding yesterday’s 20 inning classic; should the GM be canned? Should Mr. Manuel go as well? I think for the Mets to improve they both must go and go now. What do you think? While […]

I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT SPORTS OR ANYTHING ELSE

by Rex O’Rourke, not Nostradamus Clifton Park, NY – Let’s face it. I know nothing about sports. As a prognosticator, I fall somewhere between Criswell and Carmac. Let us review some of my predictions on this site in the last two years, starting with last week’s Masters preview. I predicted Jim Furyk would defeat Ernie […]

NCAAs SCHMEN-CAAs

by Rex O’Rourke Augusta, Ga – The Masters and Opening Day in the same week. Fred Astaire said it best: “Heaven, I’m in Heaven”. Now, I could bore you with a prediction on how The Yankees will return to the fall classic and The Mets will finish third (at best) but what really intrigues me […]

KICKIN' IT OLD SCHOOL

Cardinals QB Matt Leinart funnels his focus. By Rex O’Rourke AMHERST, MA – So, I did a silly thing this weekend and visited my nephew at college. Pretty sad really; you know the drill. Middle-aged man partying with 22-year-olds, pathetic, yet fun. I did a little shilling for the site, passing out MTM cards to […]

13 Comments

by Rex O’Rourke INDIANAPOLIS, IN – My sources at the NCAA tell me that March Madness is about to get even madder. The tournament is expanding to an unbelievable 128 teams in 2011. Schools that never came close to joining the big dance will now have a chance to compete on the biggest stage in […]

I'M TIRED AND I'M MAD AS HELL

20 Comments

by Rex O’Rourke NEW YORK, NY – There are some people, expressions, and pop culture events that I’m tired of and I not going to take it anymore. WHY DOES DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME KICK IN ON A WEEKEND? Take an hour of rack time away from a weekday not the weekend. Weekends are short enough! […]

MY DADDY CAN BEAT UP YOUR DADDY

28 Comments

by Rex O’Rourke TOBACCO ROAD, NC – So last night I’m watching Duke throttle North Carolina and I ask myself: “Self, what is the biggest rivalry in sports?” Is it Duke/UNC? They certainly rank up there. The Cameron Crazies alone are worth the price of admission. Multiple national championships on both sides and a dust […]
