DENVER, CO – Recently, my good colleague Cheesy Bruin opened a post talking about player safety after last week’s incident during the Cardinals game wherein Robbie Ray got plunked in the head by a serious line drive off the bat of Luke Voit.  Cheesy proposed that technology can fix this.

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

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 […]

Baseball P*ssies Jake Arrieta & Joe Maddon: Bryce Harper Ain’t Barry Bonds

12 Comments

WHITEFISH, MT – My all out effort to knock Genius Joe Maddon down a couple of couple of pegs seems to be losing steam. Particularly after his Cubs just finished a 4-game sweep of the Washington Nationals. At 24-6, the Cubs own baseball’s best record. The White Sox in the very same city, have 22 […]

FLUSHING, NY – Lawd Have Murphy! … That was the name of the 1985 Eddie Murphy tour. I got a souvenir t-shirt from the Binghamton Arena show – which I wore out by summer’s end, but now I hope similar t-shirts are being drawn up to celebrate Daniel Murphy (though would he object to the […]

by Dr. Diz COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS – It’s wildflower season down here, akin to leaf-peeping up North and we were rolling along on U.S 71 with fields of bluebonnets interspersing the big oaks and pine woods of East Texas.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE, EVERYBODY! NEW YORK, NY – Yesterday, MTM eccentric, Time Warp Tony, responded to a comment by the erstwhile philview re our collective survival of The Blizzard Of ’09. T-Dubya T thought philview was referring to TWT’s at-the-time current year and the year 1909, which is understandable because… He is in a time […]

By Rex O’Rourke The Mayo Clinic – Let’s face it. It is one stressful sports world. It’s stressful for the players, management, fans, media, and ownership.
