FREEHOLD, NJ –  While most of Management and the MTM Staff are preparing for the remnants of Hurricane Irma, yours truly will rant about anything in the world of sports.

MUNICH, GERMANY – Wilcommen, bienvenue, hola… what the f*ck is up?  Yours truly is reporting/hiccuping from Munich currently, but I have been gallivanting from London to Paris to Bavaria. It’s a once-in -a-lifetime walkabout… All spawned post-termination from my job, so I am drinking my way through Europe kind of like John Daly tours America. […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – I don’t do windows and I don’t do deadlines. That is my response to Different Matt‘s piece yesterday.  I didn’t have the busiest week but it was busy enough and thankfully I picked up pieces of news along the way to make sure I was ready to fire when it […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – It’s been very hectic/long week for me, so I couldn’t find time to read the sports section. (Do newspapers still have sports sections? What’s a newspaper? Read these questions aloud in your Jerry Seinfeld voice). So I’ll “pull an Angry Ward” and just go with whatever I feel like talking […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – Happy Boxing Day, American savages! Those of us like yours truly – a Ghanaian who peacefully won freedom from the “crown” – still respect some English habits and holidays. I watch soccer, play rugby, understand Celsius, drink tea before bed and celebrate Boxing Day. But today, to placate you Native […]

EL BARRIO, LA BRONX – What a week! I was gearing up to talk sports then all of that kicked off in Paris. I have nothing to say beyond that “S%*&t is F@#$ked up.” I say that primarily because that is all you can say at a time like this. It is a very sad […]

EL BARRIO, LA BRONX – Having had a positive week of weight loss I’m feeling great this week. What I don’t feel great about is this Saturday shift means all of the news worth carving into, has already been sliced up like a half pound of Boars Head Virginia ham. But you know what? Who […]

Blaber’s Blabberings: Sepp Blatter, Women In Sports And The NBA Playoffs

9 Comments

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – Your man Deacon Blaber is back. After 1 or 2 drinks turned into 1 to 2 dozen drinks and I forgot to write.  However, like a tenured teacher, it is near impossible to get fired at MTM, so I am back doing my penance and pinch-hitting. Orders given, I fired up […]

Baseball’s Freak of Nature, a Sepp Blatter and World’s Biggest Star

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Very rarely – probably never – do we write about just one athlete. We certainly don’t write about a player from a team that shunned the shores of the East River for the shores of San Francisco Bay. And we ain’t going to do it today. But we talk about Baseball’s […]
