Ebs’ Hot Takes: NBA Dunk Contest, New York Yankees, DeMarcus Cousins

10 Comments

CLIFTON PARK, NY – Ideally I would have liked to have written an entire column on the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, but, to be honest, I didn’t see much of it. And it’s not that I didn’t want to watch it, I was just doing other things. At the very least, I will add a few […]

14 Comments

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. Since it’s V-Day, I’ve decided to focus on matters of the heart or, rather, lack thereof. Sports Owners. At the top of the list […]

WILKES-BARRE, PA – Part of me wanted to use this column to just discuss the GRAMMYs. But that wouldn’t be very responsible of me, would it?

MARLBORO, NY–Simply aghast is how to describe a baseball news item I read over my morning coffee. At first glance I thought the report was more along the lines of “fake news” made famous by our President. I even looked at the source of the article expecting The Onion to be responsible for my rising […]

BRONX, NY – Back from Florida, where I barely survived four days of trying to kill myself with rum and gambling and mammoth hamburgers and more rum.

Who Is To Blame For This Knicks Mess? And Buddy Diaz Picks Super Bowl Winner

16 Comments

SPANISH HARLEM – Being a Knicks fan hasn’t been easy lately, and by “lately” I mean the last 20 years. The team has fought hard, yet the loses pile up. It’s draining for the fans and probably more so for the players… I hope. There are times when they seem focused and determined, there are also […]

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – I’m writing this Monday and hoping, with the promise of some snow coming in, that my flight gets out of LGA tomorrow. Anyway, if it’s Wednesday, and I’m not in Florida enjoying a Gosling’s rum, you can bet your a$$ that I am angrier than usual. Don’t feel like writing much of […]

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 […]

BRONX, NY – There’s been a lot happening the past couple of weeks. The NFL playoffs aside, nothing has been bigger than what’s been going on down in our nation’s capital. We had a new President sworn in, followed by hundreds of thousands of women descending on D.C. the very next day. If President Sunkist wasn’t […]
