Angry Ward Wednesday: The Rangers In Danger, Matt Harvey Mess, Possible NBA Fix

21 Comments

BRONX, NY – Running short on time today. Got zero in the tank and one 12 oz bottle’s worth of liquid comedy to get me through this. Even though I’m not (ever) getting paid for this, and I’d rather beg off on this week’s post, I feel compelled to show up and do what’s expected of […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: The Met Gala vs. The Mets’ Gala, Rangers, Yanks and NBA

30 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – The other night here in New York the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted its annual “Met Gala” for all manner of glitterati and starf**kers who like to dress up like imbeciles and have their pictures taken by a rabid bunch of camera-wielding monkeys. It’s quite the scene. I was shocked when […]

Divine Intervention? New York Rangers Win Stanley Cup!

13 Comments

JERUSALEM – Sunday School is now in session! Well, sort of. This will be a bit of a Biblical narrative associated with the New York Rangers pathway to Lord Stanley’s Cup. Sure, Moses used a staff – not a hockey stick – as I would have preferred, to part the Red Sea while leading the […]

BRONX, NY –  We’re only a little over a week into the 2017 Major League Baseball season and, already, I’m not feeling it. Sports fans really need baseball this time of year… especially fans in New York, where the combined efforts of the Giants, Jets, Nets, and Knicks have left Gothamites drifting the streets dead-eyed […]

BRONX, NY – If it’s Wednesday it must be time for another tired and true (no, that wasn’t a typo) post from yours truly. Let me start by saying that it will be bittersweet seeing the only real baseball hero left, Bartolo Colon, take the hill against the Mets tonight as an Atlanta Brave. I sincerely hope […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: NCAA Basketball, Pats in Sports, Other March Sadness, Sports Weather Emergency

20 Comments

BRONX, NY – Today is March 15th, a magical time of year for Irish alcoholics (redundant?), people who like throwing away their money on NCAA Basketball pools, and psychopaths who enjoy blizzards after the temperatures have already climbed over 70 degrees. Let your freak flags fly, people! Watch that awful/awesome “Leprechaun” movie that Jennifer Aniston […]

BRONX, NY – Welcome, my friends, to another Worst Day of the Week in the Worst Month of the Year, in what may turn out to be the worst year of the decade. There’s so little to discuss that isn’t completely depressing, so let’s not try to avoid any of it. Let’s sit down with the […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Owners, Golfers, Flynns and Other Heartless Sports

14 Comments

BRONX, NY – Writing this on Valentine’s Day night and, for once, it’s a welcome distraction. My kid’s been eating candy all day and I need to tune out the sugar-charged hyperactivity. Since it’s V-Day, I’ve decided to focus on matters of the heart or, rather, lack thereof. Sports Owners. At the top of the list […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Blue Christmas; Let’s Talk Some F**king Sports

13 Comments

BRONX, NY – For those of you who missed the not-so-annual Meet The Matts holiday party this year, you probably added a few extra days to your life. Between the boozing and the 100% deep-fried fare, my body still hasn’t recovered. Though guys like Grinding Ax Walter, Ben “Big Papa” Whitney, and DJ Eberle were missed, […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: The Worst of 2016 in Sports

19 Comments

BRONX, NY – This is the time of year when hacks, making a whole lot more than me, cash in on writing the easiest end-of-year columns. Most of these efforts consist of nothing more than “Best of…”or “Top 10” lists. They take almost zero thought and can be cranked out in a matter of minutes. […]
