Big Ben Whitney: Cris Carter’s Indefensible, Asinine Comments on Daniel Jones

0 Comments

Stamford, CT: We interrupt the regularly scheduled Mets’ stroke session to bring you some football news. Daniel Jones sure looked sharp in his first preseason action over the weekend, completing all five of his passes including a pretty TD. Though it was only one series, you’d think his performance would have been enough to get […]

Sports Activism: Kaepernick, Rapinoe Are No Ali

0 Comments

BLOOMINGBURG, NY – What the hell can I possibly write about today? We’ve heard enough about how the Mets suck so much or how the Yankees are on their march to October baseball. None of you want to hear about my Stanley Cup wound still being fresh. This time of year is truly the sports […]

Easter Rising: Resurrected Stars, Scapegoats, Surgery. Rocky, Tommy, OJ.

INDIANA, PA – You trivia buffs (Tall Matt, Mrs. Tall Matt, Replacement Matt) may note that this town is famous for two things: A) It’s where my wife is from B) It’s the home of Jimmy Stewart. The former has yours truly here for Easter, in the bosom of her very nice family. After two […]

Replacement Matt on Opening Day: Greatest Replacements in History

0 Comments

SUBURBIA, NJ – Since the beginning of this site I have somehow been given the designation of Replacement Matt, basically because I shared a (lack of) hairstyle with the two original Matts and was foolish enough to be willing to wear a blue monkey suit when one of them wasn’t around. I was never quite […]

Big Ben Whitney: Big Changes for NY Rangers; The Russians are Coming, Viggy Gone

1 Comment

MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, NY – There has been some big New York Rangers news over the past few days; Alain Vigneault is gone and they are bringing back Russian exile Ilya Kolvachuck. If you think I’m talking Rangers because I don’t want to face up to the ugly play of the Yankees, you’d be right. But still, […]

Big Ben’s Worst Super Bowl Match-up Ever Preview: Getting in Brady’s Head, What’s a Giants Fan To Do? Go Pats?!

0 Comments

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – I am trying to find something to care about in the Worst Super Bowl Match-up Ever. When I heard about Tom Brady’s hand injury ahead of the AFC Championship Game, it seemed like classic Belichick superfuge. This is a guy who does not use the “probable” designation or give more than a […]

Big Ben Whitney: NFL Quick Hitters and the Japanese Babe Ruth

0 Comments

Stamford, CT: Don’t bogart that thing bro, (do people still say “bogart,” it’s been a while?), it’s time for more NFL Quick Hitters. I’ll check in on our local teams and the AFC West, suddenly the worst division in the league. I’m also looking eastward, anticipating the arrival of the “Japanese Babe Ruth.” Big Blue Turd […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Judging Aaron Judge; How Good is Yankees Giant?

DETROIT ROCK CITY, MI: There’s nothing like a long weekend in a Detroit suburb to make you thankful for your city’s sports teams. What do these people have to look forward to here? Another one and done playoff run for the Lions? It’s ugly in these parts… but not as ugly as Tiger Woods’s mugshot – […]

Meet The Matts And Sports Haiku

6 Comments

MARLBORO, NY– We are an eclectic bunch here at Meet The Matts, with unique styles and viewpoints on all things sports. Today, in a somewhat negative vibe and as Junoir Blaber pontificated yesterday, I give you some Japanese poetry called Haiku as it relates to relevant sports items and some of the colorful folks on […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: No Column, But Free Booze! And Power Play Girls

24 Comments

BRONX, NY – To me, there’s nothing all that compelling to write about. Ben Whitney handled the Mets and Yanks current status earlier today. The NHL playoffs died for me after the Caps/Pens series ended. Seriously, who cares about Nashville, Anaheim or Ottawa? And no one outside of Western Pennsylvania can want to see the Penguins […]
