Melbourne, FL–There wasn’t a dry eye in the House on Sunday evening. Bernie Williams had his very good career properly recognized at Yankee Stadium. Bernie was a very good Yankee, and a consistent run producer for the dynastic Bomber teams of the mid 90s to the mid 2000s. Very good, but not great since that […]

NEW YORK, NY – It’s all about five today people. I’m writing this thing as late as I ever have. Short Matt will probably be pulling out his hair–you know, ear hair, nose hair, shoulder blade hair–waiting on me. In fact, let’s just say by the time I submit this column it will actually be […]

NOT TIGER’S MANSION, FLA – It’s Friday and before you start your groaning about a post about ‘WIVES,’ give it a chance. We’ve had more talk of Tiger Woods’ indiscretions than is necessary. I mean, I am pretty sure if we did a media poll, it’d show that Tiger’s name has been mentioned more than […]
