METSVILLE, USA – As the baseball season moves toward summer, things are looking bright in the Bronx but querulous in Queens with the Dysfunctional Mets.

SPANISH HARLEM, NY – With the NBA Playoffs underway, I will instead talk about the New York Knicks! This might not be the best time especially when there are a lot of good things happening in the NBA but I think it’s important to the New York fans to discuss Kristaps Porzingis’ dissatisfaction with Phil […]

What Do NBA Playoffs Mean? Just The Beginning of Knicks Misery!

15 Comments

SPANISH HARLEM, NY – Yesterday marked the last game of the NBA’s regular season. And as usual, it ended without a Knicks post-season appearance.

When The Knicks Win, They Also Lose!

SPANISH HARLEM, NY – On Tuesday night the New York Knicks played the Indiana Pacers and just like every game they have played this season, the defense was awful early.

TIMBUKTU, MALI – Welcome to the last day of the worst month of the year. I’m still a few weeks from caring about baseball and about a week away from caring about the NCAA tournament. The Knicks might not be relevant again in my lifetime and I plan to live to 782, like Methuselah. Since […]

Boring NBA Trade Deadline Big Shots Lob Air Balls, LeBron Swats Knicks Bricks

11 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – Professional basketball is, for the most part, boring. Yesterday’s way over-hyped NBA Trade Deadline, came and went. Phil Jackson and his fellow big-shot traders tossed air-balls and rim-jobs [ahem] our way, with but one big Boogie swapping his tank-top. But it’s not like teams like the Knicks needed to make a […]

STAMFORD, CT: Normally I’d be on beach right now, drinking a way-too-early Margarita. But infants can’t do a thing for themselves, it turns out, so I’m stuck here in the dead of winter.

Effortless Knicks, Phil Jackson Tweeting, Oakley Boxed Out

11 Comments

SPANISH HARLEM – The one thing fans hate more than watching their team lose is when their team quits (like against the Lakers on Monday). Even if you know your team isn’t very good, you still want to see effort. You want the team to fight hard until the very end. Then, maybe you can […]
