0 Comments

MARLBORO, NY – Last week’s opening round of the NFL Playoffs was a wacky one, where all four underdogs beat the spread and two (Atlanta and Tennessee) won outright. There was a little bit of everything last weekend; a large blown lead by the Chefs Chiefs… a low-scoring snoozer between Buffalo and Jacksonville… a back-door […]

 SPANISH HARLEM – At this time the Cleveland Indians are riding a wave that only Lebron James has surfed. Indians’ fans believe this is their time and it’s hard to find fault in that, as their team has played exceptionally well this postseason. First, they sweept the red-hot (at the time) Red Sox. Then they […]

by Rex O’Rourke LAKE GEORGE, NY – While on a little respite here in God’s Country, I happened upon this little nugget that, for some silly reason, basically limbo-ed under the “newsworthy radar” this week.

By Rex O’Rourke Suffern, NY – I was cruising down the road listening to The Cure Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (which holds up very well after all these years) and it reminded me of Morganna The Kissing Bandit. That reminded me of the kid that got tasered in Philly Monday Night. That reminded […]

AND THE REXY GOES TO…

By Rex O’Rourke Lexington, KY – It was an interesting week in sports. Tiger Woods missed the cut I thought he’d miss two weeks ago. The Mutts had quite a homestand and a great first night in Philly only to run into Roy Halladay on Saturday. The Yankees visited the White House. Super Saver won […]

20 Comments

by Rex “The Mailman” O’Rourke PANICSVILLE, USA – Show of hands. Is it time for Omar Minaya to go? Not withstanding yesterday’s 20 inning classic; should the GM be canned? Should Mr. Manuel go as well? I think for the Mets to improve they both must go and go now. What do you think? While […]

by Rex O’Rourke, not Nostradamus Clifton Park, NY – Let’s face it. I know nothing about sports. As a prognosticator, I fall somewhere between Criswell and Carmac. Let us review some of my predictions on this site in the last two years, starting with last week’s Masters preview. I predicted Jim Furyk would defeat Ernie […]

by Rex O’Rourke Augusta, Ga – The Masters and Opening Day in the same week. Fred Astaire said it best: “Heaven, I’m in Heaven”. Now, I could bore you with a prediction on how The Yankees will return to the fall classic and The Mets will finish third (at best) but what really intrigues me […]
