Monday Night Football @ the New York Jet Game

Jan 03, 2016 No Comments by

Monday Night Football at the Jet Game. I’d like to think of myself as a “glass half full” type of guy. But, growing up in Queens, and being genetically programmed to be a Met and Jet fan has turned me more into a “dribble glass” kinda guy.

Ah, Quinn the Eskimo – encore

Dec 02, 2015 No Comments

by Jon Hemlock No-one will ever call the Meadowland a great venue for a shows, but as always, the band did their part and the NY crowd (always there and into it) was providing enough energy for 200,000 people. I was there with a couple of buddies who has taken the trip up from DC […]

Opening Day: The New Meadowlands NY Giants

Oct 06, 2015 No Comments

by Mike Palladino It just seemed right that my beloved New York Giants would open up their new stadium (and the 2010 season) against the Carolina Panthers – a team that improperly closed out the old stadium with a complete and utter beat down, further cementing the lackluster 2009 NYG season. The Giants defense – […]

Nets vs Pacers – Did someone say Keystone Kops?

Dec 17, 2013 No Comments

By Mickey M. Another loss for the Nets, what’s new about that?  And the Pacers didn’t play any better. Even though the Pacers only had 15 points in the first quarter it wasn’t the Nets defense, it was Pacers that couldn’t hit the net and just keep turning over the ball. That was about the […]

The Boss in NJ – How “Suite” It Was

Nov 21, 2013 No Comments

There’s just a special vibe seeing Springsteen in NJ. I have seen him in CT and NY and although the music and show were OK, it really just isn’t the same. Add friends, a seat in a corporate box with unlimited food and drink in the middle of the Summer and it really doesn’t get […]
