PALM BEACH, FL – Enjoying Spring Break with the family down in sunny Florida while friends in NYC are hitting me with a barrage of texts featuring photos of snow. Looks pretty… awful. While I can’t quite match that in the “misery loves company” department, I did have to go to a Walmart the other day, […]

Angry Ward: All the Kids Are Right – Parkland Students and Hope for a Miracle

BRONX, NY – “All the kids they hold a grudge. You fail them and they won’t forget it.” So went the lyrics to the 1998 song, “All the Kids Are Right” by the band Local H. Twenty years later, these words started ringing through my head as I watched a whole bunch of tough-as-nails kids from […]

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

0 Comments

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 […]

BRONX, NY – Another football season in the books. This one ended almost perfectly for these f**ked times in which we live: a relentless offensive assault waged between opponents nobody wanted to see, culminating in the city of Philadelphia being trashed by hordes of green-clad baboons, while one grateful celebrant dropped to his knees and gave […]

BRONX, NY – No postmortem on the Vikings from me this week [insert your wild applause here]. I’m not gonna be talking about the Super Bowl either. Although I think I finally figured out a rooting interest for this horror show. Yep, I will be pulling hard (heh) for a crippling winter storm to dump and […]

BRONX, NY – This coming Sunday they’ll play the AFC and NFC Conference Championship Games to see which two teams get to go to Super Bowl LII Big Game LII for the right to decide which one lucky team gets to turn down an invite from Donald Trump.

Angry Ward Wednesday: More Minnesota Vikings Torture in Store, or Will it Be Salvation?

1 Comment

BRONX, NY – The Minnesota Vikings host a divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints next Sunday… and I’m wondering what will go wrong. It’s not that I don’t believe in this year’s version of my favorite football team, it’s just that I’ve been a fan for so long I can’t help but feel that […]

NEW YORK, NY – They light the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center in New York City tonight. I’m hyper-aware of this because 1) I live in New York and 2) I work only a couple of blocks from 30 Rock. But, the fact that we are about to fall headlong into the holidays should come […]
