Angry Ward Wednesday: Don’t Worry, The Yankees Still Suck

0 Comments

BRONX, NY – My good friend Emily delivered a terrific sermon last Sunday about love, which she was nice enough to share with me. Among her many spot-on observations was one concerning how failing at something often gives us humans a more complete perspective on whatever that thing might be. For whatever reason, I immediately thought […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Manila, Morganna, Miracle on Ice and other Unrealized Sports Goals

BRONX, NY – There’s no denying it anymore, I’m getting old. Been around long enough to have watched black and white TV, used a rotary telephone, tapped away on both manual and electric typewriters, and pleasured myself to photos in a magazine. That’s downright decrepit in a lot of books… hell, in any book. As far […]

Angry Ward: JFK Stall Tactics and the New York Mets

0 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – This past Saturday I had no choice but to tend to some urgent intestinal matters in a restroom at JFK Airport. It’s bad enough to have to fly out of JFK, but to have to use its lavatories is a truly depressing endeavor. On the bright side, I was in the […]

PALM BEACH, FL – Enjoying Spring Break with the family down in sunny Florida while friends in NYC are hitting me with a barrage of texts featuring photos of snow. Looks pretty… awful. While I can’t quite match that in the “misery loves company” department, I did have to go to a Walmart the other day, […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: At Least You’ve Got Your Health… Unless You’re Bridgewater, Bumgarner, Bird, Mets, Warriors, etc.

BRONX, NY – Lots of elements go into a winning season in sports. You’ve got outstanding singular players, team chemistry, great defense, potent offense, terrific coaching, winning streaks, timing, luck, and, yes, bad sh!t happening to other teams. It’s that last one that can often be the ultimate difference-maker. You can have the best team in […]

Angry Ward: March Badness – The Mets are Doomed, So’s Your NCAA Bracket, and NFL Draft Talk is for Suckers

1 Comment

BRONX, NY – It’s snowing like mad… at least that’s what I’m assuming, based on Tuesday night’s projections. Isn’t that f**king great? While I’ve long argued that February is the worst month of all, don’t sell March short. Both months are like god-awful sequels to all of the other great months. Think of them as The […]

BRONX, NY – Tons going on this week, all over the damn place. Seriously, very tough to keep up with it all. I’m up to the task… sort of. Going to hit on as much as possible, but I’m Hangry Ward right now and will need to cut this short to eat a whole mess of […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Yankee Dopes, Rusty on the Ropes, Other Anti Social Behavior

0 Comments

BRONX, NY – Just recently I decided to take a break from so-called “social media” and revert to my Unabomber-like anti-tech roots and, you know what, it’s been pretty goddamn glorious. There’s just way too many people putting in their 2 cents on everything pretty much all the time these days. Whether or not I agree […]

Angry Ward: All the Kids Are Right – Parkland Students and Hope for a Miracle

BRONX, NY – “All the kids they hold a grudge. You fail them and they won’t forget it.” So went the lyrics to the 1998 song, “All the Kids Are Right” by the band Local H. Twenty years later, these words started ringing through my head as I watched a whole bunch of tough-as-nails kids from […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Rangers, Rodgers, Danica and Other Winter Sports Chick Flicks

BRONX, NY – For the shortest month on the calendar, February sure as hell takes forever. How long can I possibly dwell on this fact? I’d say at least another week. There’s not a whole lot of sports drama percolating these days, and what little there is seems fairly contrived. You’re almost better off cozying up […]
