BLOOMINGBURG, NY – The Walking Boss of this site talked yesterday of sports resurrections. I’m adding my beloved Boston Bruins of this year’s NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs to the list.

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS: It is a good sports news week… if you ignore the likelihood Florida prosecutors will release video of Robert Kraft’s tug job [gag, vomit]. Sorry to throw up throw in that tidbit but it is arguably numero uno on the List of Things I Can Die Happy Never Seeing. Anyway, let’s […]

BLOOMINGBURG, NY – As many of you know, bourbon is my drink of choice and hockey is my drug of choice. I overdosed on both yesterday as I watched the NHL Playoffs  from three in the afternoon until early Sunday morning. As I watched the best sport on the planet I came away with a […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS: I got the text that Replacement Matt had refused to replace last night. I thought to myself how has he managed to constantly escape this sports blog, hotel California, know as MTM productions. He has to share his secret with the rest of us. At least with Ward, you can’t seem […]

BRONX, NY – As much as I’ve been complaining about sports lately – even more than I usually do – the beginning of baseball season always brings some fun feats, plays and results.

MARLBORO, NY – Don’t focus on the past. “Think of what’s ahead of you,” is what motivational speakers would like to have us think in leading our lives. When it comes to sports, I’d really rather not think of what’s forthcoming because, quite frankly, it sucks for the most part. Maybe you feel differently but […]

NEW YORK, NY – Since we launched in 2005 (yes, it’s been that long) nobody has gotten fired from Meet The Matts… Well, other than Tall Matt, who made ridiculous contract demands and berated staff. But in light of one of our own getting a visit from The Turk yesterday at his day job, this […]
