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 – The Mets have brought Omar Minaya back. Sweet Baby Jesus. I really can’t bear to talk about the Mets right now. The year is almost up, I’d rather focus on the positives, even if they’re kinda negatives… at least, for some. Let’s do this. Green Bay is Gone. After losing to Carolina 2 weeks […]

CURLING IS COOL

By Rex O’Rourke Vancouver, British Columbia – I like the Olympics; particularly the Winter Games, since they occur in the sports dead zone between football and baseball and before playoff hockey, hoop, and March Madness. But for sheer fanaticism you can’t touch my sister. For starters, she raises and lowers a USA Olympic flag each […]

By Rex O’Rourke, New York, N.Y. – Nuthin’ worse than being scooped, which is exactly what happened to me, as I too wanted to write my 2010 predictions. Yesterday’s post is a tough act to follow, yet after last year’s look into the crystal ball, I feel like I must try it again. As none […]
