LAS CRUCES, NM – The hype around the NFL Draft, which has now taken on the stylings of a Mardi Gras celebration – except no girls flashing their boobies – just dudes chugging beers holding signs and talking endlessly about their fantasy teams, has me thinking about those hyped prospects and draft picks who seemed […]

DENVER, CO – From the moment I heard The Cashman cashed out Joe G, all I could thing about were the litany of suitable replacements on the market.  There are former player options (Jay Bell, David Cone), current coach options (Al Pedrique, Rob Thompson), coaches from other teams (John Farrell, Mike Matheny) and maybe even […]

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.

NEW ROCHELLE, NY – We’re tapping at the keyboard up here in God’s Country on the Iona College campus, moonlighting with RugbyWrapUp.com as color/play-by-play guys for the College Rugby Bowl Series.

FLUSHING, NY – The MLB’s Oldest Man doubles (pun intended) also as its Fattest Man. Without question, though, Bartolo Colon is also The Most Entertaining Man in Sports.

18 Comments

BRONX, NY – This past Sunday, legendary liar and baseball player Alex Rodriguez announced that he would be taking his talents to Nowheresville.
