BRONX, NY – The NFC/AFC Championship games are set, either the Golden State Warriors or San Antonio Spurs will win the NBA Championship, the New York Rangers will not hoist the Stanley Cup, and the New York Mets still need a clean up hitter.

EL BARIO, BRONX – “Do this in remembrance of me” – Luke 22:19/1 Corinthians 11:24.  It’s a good opening since yours truly is covering for Preacher Collins and most of the talk this week is about remembering.

NEW YORK, NY – Instead of getting cute and/or creative this week, I felt it was high time I got back to my angry roots. Something’s been gnawing at me since the start of the playoffs and it’s high time I got it off my chest. If The Matts want to add the usual video […]

ANGRY WARD WEDNESDAY: I REALLY LOVE THE YANKEES… FOR HELPING ME HATE THEM AGAIN

BRONX, NY – I’m not gonna lie, it hasn’t been easy these past few years. Sure, the Mets have done their part to keep me ornery, but that team that plays in the shadow of the Bronx County Courthouse just hasn’t been pulling their weight. Rock bottom came last year when they didn’t even bother […]
