1 Comment

NEW YORK, NY – Today is the Fourth of July and, who are we kidding, no one is going to be visiting this site. Like Joey Chestnut winning the Nathan’s hot dog eating contest and Jeurys Familia sh!tting the bed in the 9th inning, it’s a given. Still, there’s a job to do, and I’m just […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Miami, Buffalo, Maryland, Josh Gordon… Sports Postcards from Hell

13 Comments

BRONX, NY – I’m back from Vacation! Tra-la-lee! What the hell were the Go-Go’s talking about when they got all weepy and wistful about the passing of a restful, resplendent summer recess. They clearly didn’t have kids or went to Disney in August. Crawling back into NYC on my hands and knees, bloated, beleaguered and thinking […]

CHAVEZ REVINE, CA – I know that by the middle of October most of our regular readers have turned the page from Baseball to the NFL, and starting this week to the NHL as well.  I have slowly and very begrudgingly come to the realization that watching and following Major League Baseball is now limited […]

NEW YORK, NY – Well, it looks like Buck Showalter is not messing around this post-season, as the Orioles ran roughshod over the Tigers in the ALDS opener last night. The Birds led the entire game and blew Detroit’s doors off with an 8-run explosion in the 8th inning. The O’s will look to go […]

Home Sweet Home – I just got home from a trip to eastern Europe (Estonia – where new Cincinnati Bengal Margus Hunt is from – to be exact) for a wedding and I guess I missed a whole bunch of things in the sports world. I had limited access to the Internet during my time […]

NEW YORK, NY – As Grote2DMax pointed out yesterday, there’s plenty going on in sports these days. But today I’m going to shy away from this week’s limitless supply of popular topics – The Unbeatable Knicks, Tiger at The Masters, Anything About the Yankees – to instead focus on New York’s new Jeremy Lin and a […]

44 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – It’s getting chilly here in the Northeast.  When the leaves go brown, the Sox go down.  And yes, the other day I got to explain to my mini-Cookie why the Red Sox were playing golf now. But for some of us, we’re still watching baseball… and loving it.  As I sat […]

NFL Week 4 + The A.L. East Dog Fight.

33 Comments

The Couch-  The San Francisco 49ers beat the puss out the New York Jets yesterday.  And the Atlanta Falcons had some last minute heroics to remain undefeated. But I’m declaring the 4-0 Houston Texans to be the best team in the NFL at the quarter pole.  They excel at everything.  The offense is dynamic, balanced, […]

DOGTOWN – The dog days of summer are long gone but it looks like the race for the AL East is going to be a good old fashioned Mike Vick dogfight. The Yankees and Orioles are battling to see who will avoid playing a one-game-playoff against JGClancy’s Oakland Athletics. The Rays looked to be the […]

June Sucks So Far Sports-Wise

61 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – June has arrived and the sky has officially fallen for me, sports-wise. What a depressing time this is. My Rangers crashed out of the Stanley Cup Playoffs to Fatso and the Devils, who just might go on to win it all. They lost a close one to Jonathan Quick and the […]
