EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Following up yesterday’s piece is not easy but nothing in life is. With that, let’s get to the fun stuff by focusing on the Olympics (spit!) and NCAA Basketball, especially its king of corruption. Sticking to my patent-pending formula, we will have a Song of the Week followed by Sports […]

WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, NY – Losing a loved one is never pleasant. Losing someone that had a joy for life and was serious about having fun, makes it more difficult. But those kinds of people would be ticked if we didn’t remember them and smile… After reading Mike Vaccaro’s piece about Donald Fuzzy Cohen, the passing […]

SPANISH HARLEM – The Boston Red Sox finally signed J.D. Martinez and the Yankees traded for Brandon Drury. That’s what makes for news when the only sport being played is hockey. I will dig a little deeper into those moves and breakdown what it means for either club. Also with basketball back today, the New […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Rangers, Rodgers, Danica and Other Winter Sports Chick Flicks

BRONX, NY – For the shortest month on the calendar, February sure as hell takes forever. How long can I possibly dwell on this fact? I’d say at least another week. There’s not a whole lot of sports drama percolating these days, and what little there is seems fairly contrived. You’re almost better off cozying up […]

MARLBORO, NY – On Wednesday I really noticed that my nighttime television viewing centers on one thing and one thing only… hockey! It was an epiphany of sorts since there was nary a game to be broadcast this night in question. I couldn’t even find a college game and felt annoyed. Fu Puck Heads like […]

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – It is amazing how despite not caring for the NFL or Winter Olympics, you are forced to mention them when you write a weekly sports article. Especially this time of the year, because there is not much to talk about. Sure, I could talk about Rugby or the upcoming MLS season […]

Olympics Scandals: Shaun White, George Carlin, Bruce Jenner, Ghana in Skeleton?!

0 Comments

DENVER, CO – The other day there was a comment on a post that firmly irritated me. Our own resident Ghanaian-American Junoir Blaber asserted that the Summer Olympics are better than the Winter Olympics. I wonder if he knew that Ghana has a man competing in Men’s Skeleton when he said that. Either way, his […]

BRONX, NY – As I’ve mentioned too many times to count, February is a slow month, for sports and for everything else… except the flu. The flu is absolutely dominating right now. Hitting for average, dunking on children and the elderly, scoring hat tricks in the ménage à trois circuit, and pretty much sacking everyone in its […]

The King?! Henrik Lundqvist is the Don Mattingly of Hockey in NYC Sports Lore

0 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – This city is so great they named it twice – and to get a nickname in this town as an athlete is almost always well-deserved and fitting. You won’t get an argument from me on any of these feted NYC heroes except for one: Henrik “The King” Lundqvist of the New […]
