EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – I apologize for the late posting. By laws of marketing you are not suppose draw attention to this stuff (being tardy), but I had a great reason. I stayed up until 11pm to watch the USA play Honduras (more on that later). So there was that and the late night Matt […]

20 Comments

BRONX, NY – Today is March 15th, a magical time of year for Irish alcoholics (redundant?), people who like throwing away their money on NCAA Basketball pools, and psychopaths who enjoy blizzards after the temperatures have already climbed over 70 degrees.

Big Ben Tuesday: NFL QB Staring Contests; Brock Osweiler, Tony Romo and Jimmy Garoppolo

21 Comments

CHUNKY, MISSISSIPPI – I’ve got my head turned toward the NFL again, and the QB Chinese fire drill is riveting. The landscape for quarterbacks is pretty barren – only old and fragile veterans remain available, while the draft class is filled with not-ready-for-prime-time projects. Anybody with an arm and a few snaps under his belt is getting […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – I was suffering from a food hangover. It felt like I had a hangover but I hadn’t been drinking, so I assume it was the Popeye’s Chicken I ate. Regardless, I got the email to be Pinch-hit Matt again and as usual, I lived up to my name… well, because […]

TIMBUKTU, MALI – Welcome to the last day of the worst month of the year. I’m still a few weeks from caring about baseball and about a week away from caring about the NCAA tournament. The Knicks might not be relevant again in my lifetime and I plan to live to 782, like Methuselah. Since […]

Pouting Porzingis? Revis or Rikers? George “The Animal” Steele, Line of the Week

NEW YORK, NY – Granted, Spring Training has all a bit giddy… distracted even. And that’s partly why we didn’t get this piece up earlier. (Not communicating with Junior Blaber and Grinding Ax didn’t help). But baseball be damned, as we have some other stories that caught our eye/tickled our fancy. With that, here our […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – What time is it?! Showtime! What time is it?! Showtime! Those are the most annoying 8 words to hear when you are on a NYC train. However, this time out it is “Showtime!” for yours truly, Pinch-hit Matt. Anyway, in keeping with my new routine/gig, you get a Song of […]

BRONX, NY – Back from Florida, where I barely survived four days of trying to kill myself with rum and gambling and mammoth hamburgers and more rum. On Tuesday, Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate as this country’s new Secretary of Education as Mike Pence, still in his medically-induced coma, blinked twice to cast […]

NEW YORK, NY – It’s a spectacle every year and this year will be no different. The Big Game is here. I’m talking, of course, about the Rangers’ game against the Calgary Flames at the Garden this Sunday. The Rangers are coming off of a rough stretch of games. After getting busted up by the […]
