Angry Ward Wednesday: Your Sports Marriage Isn’t Working Out. Jeter, Bieber, Christie

0 Comments

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 […]

NEW YORK, NY – Today is the Fourth of July and, who are we kidding, no one is going to be visiting this site. Like Joey Chestnut winning the Nathan’s hot dog eating contest and Jeurys Familia sh!tting the bed in the 9th inning, it’s a given. Still, there’s a job to do, and I’m just […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Summer Fun – Then vs. Now

0 Comments

BRONX, NY – For New York City Public School kids, classes finally came to a merciful end yesterday. I think we are the last city on the planet to release youngsters from their academic obligations… by a LOT. And I’m not one of those parents who wish the year ran longer for these kids. Strangely enough, […]

BRONX, NY – I was toying with the idea of changing my column name to “Ambivalent Ward Wednesday” to get in step with the general vibe of everyone (and I use that word liberally) else around here. But, nah. Besides, I got something I really want to write about this week. Don’t worry, it’s not about […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: I’m All in on Legal Sports Gambling

0 Comments

BRONX, NY – Let’s just cut to the chase this week. The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that states outside of Nevada can now have legal sports gambling. While I’ll be nice and shed a tear for all the old-school bookies, I cheer that the good citizens of New York, New Jersey and every other state […]

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

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 […]

Angry Ward: Football, Film Awards, Todd Frazier Signs with Mets

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 […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Brady’s Broken, Blake Griffin Exiled and Larry Nassar Should Burn

BRONX, NY – Last Wednesday I took a little heat in the old comments section for not hitting my recommended daily allowance of vitriol and/or writing about anything anyone remotely cared about. Good news, your complaints have been heard. Better news! I’m just gonna keep on writing about whatever the hell occurs to me between making […]
