Pouting Porzingis? Revis or Rikers? George “The Animal” Steele, Line of the Week

10 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – Granted, Spring Training has all a bit giddy… distracted even. And that’s partly why we didn’t get this piece up earlier. (Not communicating with Junior Blaber and Grinding Ax didn’t help). But baseball be damned, as we have some other stories that caught our eye/tickled our fancy. With that, here our […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Owners, Golfers, Flynns and Other Heartless Sports

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 […]

More Rob Manfred MLB Rule Changes? Blame Millennials!

14 Comments

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 […]

EL BRONX, EL BARRIO – What time is it?! Showtime! What time is it?! Showtime! Those are the most annoying 8 words to hear when you are on a NYC train. However, this time out it is “Showtime!” for yours truly, Pinch-hit Matt. Anyway, in keeping with my new routine/gig, you get a Song of […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Brady’s Jersey and Betsy DeVos Answers Your Sports Questions

13 Comments

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. On Tuesday, Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate as this country’s new Secretary of Education as Mike Pence, still in his medically-induced coma, blinked twice to cast […]

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 […]

Grinding Ax: The Hugest Super Bowl Ever! Brady, Dr Evil, Nancy Pelosi, Matty Ice

9 Comments

HOUSTON, TX –  As we prepare for another Super Bowl, the curiosity is simply poking holes in my large Irish ceann (Gaelic for head). Will Luke Bryan nail the National Anthem?  What will the billions of people think about the 2017 version of Peaches and Herb halftime performance?  Will Tony Bennett ( brought to you by Depends) survive the show?  Will Lady Gag Me piss off […]

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 […]

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 […]
