EL BARRIO, LA BRONX – So I had surgery this week on my partially torn Achilles. You’d think I would have time to write this piece, what with being laid up in bed the past few days, wouldn’t you? Whenever I’m in need of inspiration I go to the sports “pages” and find the news […]

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – A few things that happened this week deserve attention: the New York Yankees getting back to the business of out-doing the cross-town New York Mets at the Winter Meetings and Kobe Bryant benching Kobe Bryant.

Angry Ward Wednesday: Mets, Cubs and Everything You Need to Know About Chicago

BRONX, NY – I wrote this on Monday night so I didn’t need to miss any of last night’s 5-2 Mets win over the Cubbies. Despite what my wife says, I’m such a forward thinker… at least selectively. Anyway, I did not come here to trash the city of Chicago, I came here to praise […]
