WILKES-BARRE, PA – March Madness. It’s finally here! And while I admit I’m disappointed Syracuse won’t get its opportunity to run the table once again, I’ll have to settle for a No. 1 seed in the NIT. But enough about the Orange. I’ll come back to them later. It’s time to talk about the teams […]

WILKES-BARRE, PA – We’re down to the last week of the men’s basketball regular season. At least for the Power 5 conferences. Many of the mid-major leagues will start their tournaments at some point this week. Anyway, this means we’re less than two weeks from Selection Sunday and shortly after that March Madness will officially begin. […]

Either way, there were some interesting things to happen in sports over the last week. I won’t take any longer with my introduction. Let’s get right to it. Here’s […]

WILKES-BARRE, PA – I know most of you are probably on the edge of your seat with anticipation for my thoughts on the Super Bowl matchup. You’ll have to wait another week. Yes, I know I was wrong picking both the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers to be victorious on Sunday. But I can’t […]

Happy Martin Luther King Day… CLIFTON PARK, NY – Well, that was a better weekend of playoff football, right? From Matty Ice’s spectacular performance against Seattle and the Houston Texans hanging around as long as they could, to Green Bay’s heck of a win in Jerry World, and Chris Boswell’s performance in KC… Wow, that was […]

WILKES-BARRE, PA – Happy New Year! What a year 2016 was! But some things don’t change. Like the Buffalo Bills not making the playoffs, and a year-plus later and E.J.

WILKES-BARRE, PA – We’re getting closer and closer to the NFL playoffs, and while the Buffalo Bills will likely be left out for the 17th straight season, it’s still setting up for a tremendous tournament.

WILKES-BARRE, PA – I know a lot of you want me to go off on Rex Ryan, Tyrod Taylor and my beloved Buffalo Bills, but it’s not happening. Yet. To be honest, I’m still processing what happened Sunday. And with reports that Ryan could be out the door before some of you even read this, and […]

WILKES-BARRE, PA – So, I didn’t know what to do Sunday. With the Buffalo Bills playing in Seattle on Monday night, I didn’t have to go to a bar to watch the game. It was different to say the least. I actually got to enjoy a day of football and not fret about the play of the […]
