Angry Ward Wednesday: Tom Petty Sports Tribute

0 Comments

BRONX, NY – As I sit here tapping this out on a Tuesday evening, just a little over an hour from Wild Card baseball action – Yankees won,  I’m taking a deep breath. It’s been quite a few days of lousy news. More hurricane destruction, more gun insanity in Vegas, and, to add insult to […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: The New York Giants Suck… But then, so Does Most of the NFL

0 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – I watched enough of the Giants/Lions game Monday night to know that I was glad that I didn’t watch ALL of the Giants/Lions game on Monday night. To put it bluntly, the New York Football Giants, as constructed by Jerry Reese and coached by Ben McAdoo, suck. We’ll get into those specifics […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Breaking Down Falcons’ Flop, Supermodel Celebration for the Ages

12 Comments

Houston, TX: Clearly there is no justice in the world. What a depressing end to a riveting Super Bowl. Watching the Falcons do everything right until they did everything wrong was painful, and Hell’s favorite QB and Coach added another ring to their impressive resumés. The Falcons’ hammer missed the coffin’s last nail and the Pats clawed their […]

Ebs’ Hot Takes: Super Bowl LI Reaction. Dewey Defeats Truman

8 Comments

CLIFTON PARK, NY – Of course. Should we even be surprised? I’m certainly not… Once the New England Patriots cut the deficit to 16 points in the fourth quarter I knew the Atlanta Falcons were toast. I’ve seen it too many times before with the Buffalo Bills. Maybe after watching this fans outside of the […]

Thoughts on Sunday’s Big Game, Cheerleaders, Yanks, Mets, Rangers

NEW YORK, NY – It’s a spectacle every year and this year will be no different. The Big Game is here. I’m talking, of course, about the Rangers’ game against the Calgary Flames at the Garden this Sunday. The Rangers are coming off of a rough stretch of games. After getting busted up by the […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Super Bowl Prop Bets, Knicks Defense, NHL Rangers Outlook

14 Comments

WHITE PLAINS, NY – I expected Trump to make America great again, but not this fast. I intentionally lost a game of Scrabble today, just because I’m so tired of winning already. Speaking of too much winning, if you’re like me, you’d rather eat a roadkill sandwich with vegenaise than watch the Pats win another […]

Ebs’ One Big Thing: Super Bowl LI

10 Comments

WILKES-BARRE, PA – Look, you probably don’t want to hear this, but the Pro Bowl was pretty enjoyable to watch. There, I said it. Sure, points didn’t come at a flurry, but there were some big hits (hat tip to Zach Brown, Lorenzo Alexander and Ryan Shazier). It was refreshing to watch. Also, the Buffalo […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Alternative Super Bowl Facts, Reluctant Patriots Praise, Belichick vs Brady, Most Awkward Trophy Presentation?

25 Comments

WASHINGTON , DC: Our man Ebs felt the pressing need to break down the Buffalo Sabres yesterday, so it falls to me to take the first look at the Super Bowl. Among other things, we’ll discuss Bill Belichick, an honorable man who would rather lose than compromise the integrity of the game. That may seem false at […]

Ebs’ One Big Thing: Fantasy Football Draft

12 Comments

BALLSTON SPA, NY – There were a lot of ways I could have went with this week’s column… The Baby Bombers have made a surge of late and sit well within the AL Wild Card hunt, all of the storylines in the NFL – i.e. Tony Romo, Colin Kaepernick and, for once, not the Buffalo […]

NFL Playoffs: Showcase For Rugby Stars???

24 Comments

ALBANY, NY – With this being the NFL Wild Card Weekend and a showcase of the league’s best players, I figured the timing was right to incorporate football into RugbyWrapUp, by looking at 5 players from the NFL that would fare well in Rugby, especially Sevens. As a current college football player (right tackle), I’m […]
