0 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – How about that MLB Trade Deadline? Had about as much action as “My Dinner with Andre.” (Older reference lost on younger viewers.)

0 Comments

HIGHLANDS, NC – I’m on vacation in the middle of nowhere. Almost no cell service, limited WiFi access, basically a Millennial’s nightmare. I’m not even all that sure what’s going on in sports. Has anyone on the Mets contracted Bubonic Plague? What’s Trump’s latest lame effort to deflect attention from the fact that Russia owns his […]

0 Comments

MARLBORO, NY – Yesterday I spent the afternoon at 161st Street and River Avenue in the Bronx; home to the New York Yankees. It was my first ever “Subway Series” interleague game between the New York Mets and the reviled Yankees. It was, for lack of a better word, amazing, at what I walked away […]

NEW YORK, NY – 24-year-old popster Justin Bieber got engaged the other day to Stephen Baldwin’s 21-year-old daughter (good luck with that father-in-law, Biebs), and the kids couldn’t seem happier. That’s the way it always is at the beginning: you’re going to great restaurants, getting bombed, having sex all the time, living in the “now,” and […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Yankees and Mets Blockbuster, deGrom sent to the Bronx for a Haul of Prospects

1 Comment

Tampa, FL: I was lucky enough to see the thirteenth inning walk-off in Tampa, giving the Rays the sweep over the Yanks on Sunday. Way to get my vacation off on the wrong foot, Rays. You can imagine my surprise when I found out that the Mets had agreed to send ace Jacob deGrom to […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: 2018 MLB Baseball Season Shaping Up as Suckiest Ever

0 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – I could spend today talking about how Trump disinviting the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House is a win-win-win, in that the Eagles don’t have to go, Trump doesn’t have to get butt-hurt because of the light turnout and bore us all with illiterate tweets, and the NFL looks like an even […]

What If George Steinbrenner Owned the Mets?

0 Comments

FLUSHING, NY – Such is the current (okay, constant) State of the NY Mets, that even after a hope-filled Steven Matz win, this died-dyed-in-the-wool fan can even ponder such baseball blasphemy, but… What If George Steinbrenner Owned The Mets? #1: David Wright would be on the books somewhere else, as his Groundhog Day comeback continues.

John Adams, Cleveland Browns, Mets and How The Royal Wedding Is Bad For Sports

DENVER, CO – The Cheese is out. Today you get President John Adams. Amidst the course of human history, love has a way of superseding politics. Antony & Cleopatra, Anne Boleyn & Henry VIII, Marie Antoinette & Louis XVI, just to name a few. All this is well and good for the history books. It […]
