EL BARRIO, EL FALLS: I am back in upstate New York. I survived my trip to the Bronx, if only just barely. It was great to see the family and do something special, though. But before Big Ben Whitney shows up to protest another one of my introductions, let’s get to the menu for today:  […]

NL Beast? Bryce Harper, Beefed-Up Phils, Young Braves, Maybe Mets

0 Comments

WASHINGTON, DC – The irony is that the headline doesn’t represent the team this post originates from, the Washington Nationals… and they are pretty good on paper, too. Do we suddenly have Major League Baseball’s best division in the National League East?! Are we looking at the NL Beast, what with Bryce Harper & his […]

BRONX, NY – “It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing.” So goes the Hemingway line from one of my favorite books, The Sun Also Rises. It’s a good line because it’s true. It’s much easier to deal with things in the in the light of […]

What’s Ahead? Not Much. Kentucky Derby, Opening Day, Stanley Cup. Meh?

0 Comments

MARLBORO, NY – Don’t focus on the past. “Think of what’s ahead of you,” is what motivational speakers would like to have us think in leading our lives. When it comes to sports, I’d really rather not think of what’s forthcoming because, quite frankly, it sucks for the most part. Maybe you feel differently but […]

NEW YORK, NY – Since we launched in 2005 (yes, it’s been that long) nobody has gotten fired from Meet The Matts… Well, other than Tall Matt, who made ridiculous contract demands and berated staff. But in light of one of our own getting a visit from The Turk yesterday at his day job, this […]

SUBURBIA, NJ – Once again I’ve been asked to step in and cover for the one alleged “sports-writing professional” on this site… who is absent again. I wonder if his editors at the Sports Desk put up with this sort of thing? If so, we all need to apply there. Anyway, we”ll get to the […]

George Thomas Seaver: You’re Still Tom Terrific To Me

1 Comment

NEW YORK, NY – The text from Angry Ward was a blow. It was stunning and and cruel, as life can be sometimes. “Seaver has dementia. You can go ahead and start feeling old now.” It was not meant to be malicious, cavalier or insensitive. Ward may have a persona here, but that’s just what […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: To Limp and Die in LA – LeBron, Todd Gurley, and Tough Times at Santa Anita

1 Comment

BRONX, NY – Due to lack of interest, we interrupt “An Oral History of Meet The Matts” to bring you another pedestrian-at-best sports post. It’s in my contract.

WTF Sports Items: Bryce Harper, Jason Witten, Boston Bruins

0 Comments

MARLBORO, NY – Truth be told, I’m not the rabid sports junkie that I once was. I’m all about the games and less about pregame shows, scouting combines, trade rumors, et. al. Sometimes the more I think I know about sports the less I actually understand, too. Two items that happened this past week just […]
