Angry Ward Tuesday? Someone’s Gotta Post Something!

Bronx, NY – What gives? No column today? I can’t let that happen. I mean, the Mets overcame another lousy Jonathan Niese start to best Max Scherzer and the Nats yesterday, pushing their NL Least lead over the Natty Lights to 5 games. That’s gotta be worth a mention, no?

How about them Yankees? They are red hot once again. Their competition these days is melting away like a Reggie Bar on August asphalt. And it that’s not enough, the Bronx Bombers are proud to announce that, this Sunday September 13th, they’ll be having a special day to commemorate their beloved DH Alex Rodriguez getting his 3,000th hit earlier this year (half of which were legit). Can you say hypocrites?

If you’re baseballed out, there’s always the football season starting this Thursday night. The Patriots are hosting the Steelers. Lots of tradtion between these two storied franchises. And by “tradition” and “storied” I of course mean cheating and drug suspensions and let’s not forget rape. Are you ready for some football? Better bring your brass knuckles and mace.

OK, I’m done. Guess I’ll be back tomorrow. Does this count as overtime?

Angry Ward, who has admirers at the New York Times, is the quintessential angry sports fan but for one exception... he's flat-out funny. And the angrier he gets, the more amusing his work becomes. Psychiatrists say, "Angry Ward's 'anger' is a direct result of "Bronx/Mets syndrome: growing up in the Bronx as a Mets fan." As if that weren't enough, his Minnesota North Stars abandoned him for Dallas, forcing him to embrace The Wild the way Nancy Pelosi embraces Mitch McConnell at charity events. And while his Vikings only tease him with success, his Golden State Warriors actually win these days. A-Dubya is MTM's longest-tenured indentured servant, its Larry David and quite simply, "The Franchise." (Junoir Blaber disputes this). Vent, curse and giggle with him on Angry Ward Wednesdays.
