NEW YORK, NY – They light the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center in New York City tonight. I’m hyper-aware of this because 1) I live in New York and 2) I work only a couple of blocks from 30 Rock. But, the fact that we are about to fall headlong into the holidays should come […]

BRONX, NY – I don’t want to write about politics. I don’t want to write about old TV shows. I don’t want to write about the unseasonably warm weather or kneeling during the National Anthem or the Great Barrier Reef wasting away. Honestly, I really don’t want to write at all this week. So, here’s […]

THE STICKS, NY – Remember those grade-school days when the very first assignment was a “What I during summer vacation” composition? Well, New Year’s Day was eventful enough – in a pathetic sort of way – to crap out my first post for the year 2015. Let me preface my first fumble of the year […]

ARLINGTON, TX – On January 12th, in this town known more for the presence of Nolan Ryan than anything else, the improbable will happen: College Football will have its first semblance of a true championship bout. And the combatants couldn’t be more unlikely; the Ohio State Buckeyes, who stunned Alabama’s Crimson Tide behind a third-string […]

Doc Diz re Nick Saban with the Devil, TCU, Bama and College Picks

FORT WORTH, TX – I think Nick Saban is in cahoots with Beelzebub. How else do you explain their victory last week? LSU holds em’ to ten points…..ten…over the course of the game. With 50 seconds left, the Bayou Bengals kick a field goal to go ahead. 50 seconds. And Bama has no timeouts. So, […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Rebels, Royals, Unicycles, Lasers, and Hair Pulling. Yeah!

BRONX, NY – Was thinking of asking Management for a break from the column this week but I was pretty certain what their response would be, so I’m forging ahead as planned. To be honest, after all the NFL scandals and wild final week of baseball’s regular season, I haven’t really been bowled over with many […]

YELLOW KNIFE, NORTHWEST TERRITORY – What’s a guy to do in the middle of July who doesn’t follow baseball? The weather has been absolutely beautiful over an early summer span without a heat spell to speak of, and is keeping things copasetic… despite the sports void. Morning coffee on the patio and early evening cold […]

Alabama v Notre Dame; Much More Than Bible-Banger v Touchdown Jesus

FORT WORTH, TX – I just love that commercial on ESPN, the one where everyone down in Bama ends their sentence with “Roll Tide” including after some guy’s funeral eulogy. Because, for those of you who have never been to the Heart of Dixie, that is the actual state of affairs down there. “I’ll have […]

NEW YORK, NY – The wife and I made it out to the movies again last Saturday night which, up until recently, was unheard of. Let’s put it this way, ever since Li’l Angry arrived, I think I’ve been to the movies a total of five or six times in four years. Anyway, since the disaster that was The […]
