Warriors Wait, LeBron Back to his Old Ways, Ginóbili Swansong?

3 Comments

SPANISH HARLEM, NY – The Golden State Warriors on Monday swept the San Antonio Spurs, I’m sure to the delight of our very own Angry Ward but I ask you this question. How Happy can you be when all this was expected from the beginning of the season. Is it a modest happiness or are […]

Meet The Matts And Sports Haiku

6 Comments

MARLBORO, NY– We are an eclectic bunch here at Meet The Matts, with unique styles and viewpoints on all things sports. Today, in a somewhat negative vibe and as Junoir Blaber pontificated yesterday, I give you some Japanese poetry called Haiku as it relates to relevant sports items and some of the colorful folks on […]

Why we need sports now, NY sports suck again and Mets fans helping Mets fans

7 Comments

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – Not sure if it is desperation or maybe I isn’t so bad at this pinch-hitting thing. Either way, guess who’s back!?!?… It is I, Pinch-Hit Matt and I am ready to go. With that said, If it ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it, so I will stick to my tried and […]

Sunday Sports Page: New York Mets, New York Rangers, NBA Playoffs, Derek Jeter

15 Comments

MARLBORO, NY– Lacking pomp and circumstance, let’s get to today’s sports topics of discussion… “Why does God hate the Mets?“ the New York Post front page recently asked.  The answer is a layup. It’s as easy as connecting the dots leading from the Wilpons to Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff. Karma is indeed a bitch with yet another […]

22 Comments

NOTE: Different Matt was out past curfew Thursday night and “went golfing” yesterday. A “migraine” and miscommunication had him AWOL at MTM HQ, so Grinding Ax Walter Hynes took the ball on no rest, after flying in from Des Moines. FREEHOLD, NJ – Are you a serious baller? If you think you are or aspire to […]

What’s Wrong With The NBA Playoffs? Do They Suck?

22 Comments

SPANISH HARLEM, NY – In all honesty, I have spent no more than 2 hours of my life watching this year’s NBA Playoffs. I only tune in to watch the games that matter (anything with Golden State or Lebron James), and have come away feeling slighted. The Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are just better than every […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: The Rangers In Danger, Matt Harvey Mess, Possible NBA Fix

21 Comments

BRONX, NY – Running short on time today. Got zero in the tank and one 12 oz bottle’s worth of liquid comedy to get me through this. Even though I’m not (ever) getting paid for this, and I’d rather beg off on this week’s post, I feel compelled to show up and do what’s expected of […]

Glug, Glug, Glug: Mets Ship Sinking, Rangers, Yanks Predators Chugging

16 Comments

MARLBORO, NY – It was on this date in 1915 that a German submarine sank the Lusitania and thrust the U.S. of A. into World War I. Present day sports has me reporting in a similarly negative manner on the New York Mets, New York Yankees and the NHL Playoffs. Abandon ship! Friday night’s comeback […]

Can’t Miss Kentucky Derby Bets, World Series, Stanley Cup Predictions. Built on Dopey and Toothless

9 Comments

LOUISVILLE, KY – It’s Derby Day.  To many this day means hats, mint-juleps, pomp and much circumstance.  To me the Kentucky Derby is simply a pleasant reminder that there are some people in Kentucky with a full set of teeth.  That being said, these people are hardly the target market of the ponies.  Myself and […]

NY Rangers vs Senators, Mets DL vs Medical Staff, NBA Playoffs vs Who Cares?

11 Comments

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – Can it really be a comeback, if you never left? Well I think not, especially as I am Pinch-Hit Matt and going weeks without being called is part of the job description. Alas, I have been called off the bench to be beaten, shaken and dusted off like and old […]
