Georgetown Hoyas vs. Panthers 1983 – Now I KNOW a Panther

Oct 10, 2013 No Comments by

The first thing I thought of when I saw this ticket was “Wow, the Pitt Panthers, I’ve got a friend and business associate who played ball for them, gotta tell him he’s about to be in a Stubstory.” So, Willie Kelly, power forward for the 74, 75, & 76¬† Panthers, this one’s for you – […]

Much like a graduation or other seminal event, this was truly one of the days that helped put Stubstory “on-the-map”. When we were fortunate enough to have Canada AM reach out to […]

Aug 24, 2013 No Comments

I dug this stub out thinking about the Winter Classic coming up today in Pittsburgh, then realized why I’d held onto it after all. It was Gretzky’s last game at the Garden – and the crowd was there to pay homage to the Great One. It was amazing what his presence had meant at MSG […]

Now this particular stub comes from a series the New York Mets shouldn’t have even been in. After a highly unlikely route into the playoffs […]

I don’t care when they drop that first puck, the only thing that happens in a hockey season before December is that the trash sinks to the bottom – but nobody every won a Stanley Cup on the back of the hockey they played in October and November. No sir, now with Thanksgiving behind us […]

Giants – Bears (The Ring of Honor Game)

Jul 04, 2013 1 Comment

I don’t know if it was the NFL record or not, but watching Jay Cutler get bounced around like a pinball was pretty much as much fun as you can have as a Giants football fan. True, nobody wants to see a guy leave with a concussion (we could practically see the stars spinning around […]
