10 Comments

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.

19 Comments

BRONX, NY – This is the time of year when hacks, making a whole lot more than me, cash in on writing the easiest end-of-year columns. Most of these efforts consist of nothing more than “Best of…”or “Top 10” lists. They take almost zero thought and can be cranked out in a matter of minutes. […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Kicking Dirt on the New York Football Giants

20 Comments

BRONX, NY – Friends, Giants Fans, Rusty Kuntz, lend me your ears; I have come to bury the New York Football Giants, not to praise them. We’re only 5 games into the NFL season, but already the Giants look dead in the water. I’m sure, at 2-3, there’s still some hope out there among the Big […]
