SUNSET BOULEVARD – Hi folks, I’ve been enjoying my semi-retirement but was given reason to dust off my old MTM press credentials this week and head down to Chavez Ravine.  Yes, it’s WCC at the WBC again, despite Buddy’s great recap yesterday.

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 […]

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.

BRONX, NY – Writing this on Valentine’s Day night and, for once, it’s a welcome distraction. My kid’s been eating candy all day and I need to tune out the sugar-charged hyperactivity.

BRONX, NY – There’s been a lot happening the past couple of weeks. The NFL playoffs aside, nothing has been bigger than what’s been going on down in our nation’s capital. We had a new President sworn in, followed by hundreds of thousands of women descending on D.C. the very next day. If President Sunkist wasn’t […]
