EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – I took a break from the sports pages this week because it was the deadest week in American Sports. All the sports are in their off-season except baseball, which is the All-Star break. Although soccer is trying to make it the 5 major sports in America, it is not there […]

Big Ben Tuesday: The NBA Finals and Five Annoying Things about Basketball

0 Comments

Toronto, Ontario: I watched the first two games of the NBA Finals, which brings my season total of playoff games watched to two. This is mainly because hockey is about 78,000 times better, but it didn’t take me to long to realize I was way out of my element when I predicted an easy finals for […]

STAMFORD, CT – Billy Buckner died on Monday at 69 of dementia. If you were treated like Buckner by the Boston fans and media, you might want to forget who you were, too. Sure, they “forgave” him and gave him the #StandingOvation in 2008, but we all know that never would have happened had the […]

BRONX, NY – Lots of elements go into a winning season in sports. You’ve got outstanding singular players, team chemistry, great defense, potent offense, terrific coaching, winning streaks, timing, luck, and, yes, bad sh!t happening to other teams. It’s that last one that can often be the ultimate difference-maker. You can have the best team in […]

SPANISH HARLEM – The New York Knicks tank job is in full effect and I couldn’t be happier. It sucks but this organization needed this because the team is truly a mess, with or without Kristaps Porzingis. I know there was talk of the playoffs before KP got hurt but I truly believed the only […]

WESTEROS, NORTH OF THE WALL: I was getting primed for the season premier of Game of Thrones on Sunday afternoon and I caught the memorable The Door episode from last season. Hodor’s tragic sacrifice gets me every damn time. I wiped off a few tears and then toggled over to the Yankees Red Sox. Aaron Judge was up and […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: School is Tough, Playing Sports is Not. And David Wright Return?

0 Comments

BRONX, NY – Today is, mercifully, the final day of school for New York City public school kids. As a parent, I think the biggest lie that adults ever tell kids is the old saw that goes… “You think school is tough? Wait until you have to work for a living, like I do!” What a […]

BRONX, NY – Running short on time today. Got zero in the tank and one 12 oz bottle’s worth of liquid comedy to get me through this. Even though I’m not (ever) getting paid for this, and I’d rather beg off on this week’s post, I feel compelled to show up and do what’s expected of […]

METSVILLE, USA – As the baseball season moves toward summer, things are looking bright in the Bronx but querulous in Queens with the Dysfunctional Mets. The NBA playoffs, on the other hand, are the worst warmup band ever. Can we get to the Cavs vs Warriors already? How Much is that Dildo in the Picture? […]

SPANISH HARLEM, NY –The New York Yankees started playing exhibition games last weekend. So far so good.  It’s given fans – like me –  hope the team made the right decision to go forward with the youth movement. Elsewhere,  Antonio Brown is in the news again… but for all the right reasons. Finally, will Kevin […]
