EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – I took a break from the sports pages this week because it was the deadest week in American Sports. All the sports are in their off-season except baseball, which is the All-Star break. Although soccer is trying to make it the 5 major sports in America, it is not there […]

SPANISH HARLEM – Last Friday was uneventful for me. I was dead tired from hanging out all night on the 4th of July and just slept all day. Looking back, it was actually great now that I think about it. I took a midday nap and woke up again at 9 pm, I stayed awake, […]

CLIFTON PARK, NY – Ideally I would have liked to have written an entire column on the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, but, to be honest, I didn’t see much of it. And it’s not that I didn’t want to watch it, I was just doing other things. At the very least, I will add a few […]
