I can read a defense like Peyton Manning (for 1 play at least)

Jan 10, 2016 No Comments by

As far as I’m concerned, this was the beginning of the end of the Patriots dynasty. Sure, 2007 saw a freak resurgence due to the Bill Belichick Fantasy Team, but they were not the Super Bowl Patriots we had become accustomed to in New England. But, 2006 was still the Patriots time. Since our last […]

US Soccer loses to Honduras

Jan 08, 2016 No Comments by

by John Santos The ticket was from (you guessed it) the January match.  Unfortunately for US fans, the US lost 3-1.  It’s also notable as it was the first match I had ever attended in person in which the US lost.  It was even worse for my brother as it was only the second ever […]

Monday Night Football @ the New York Jet Game

Jan 03, 2016 No Comments

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.

American Soccer League – who remembers

Dec 17, 2015 No Comments

by Tony M. I don’t know how many people are going to remember the American Soccer League, and even less the Carolina Lightnin’, but I do. I’m thinking they had 3, maybe 4 years before the league either went under or merged with “name your next soccer league”. I can tell you the reason I […]

World Figure Skating Championships, Ottawa, 1984

Dec 15, 2015 No Comments

In the spring of 1980, Dianne and I became friends when we happened to meet while pushing baby carriages in our suburban Toronto neighborhood. But we soon learned that we had much more in common than just geography and baby sons; we both loved the sport of figure skating. In March, 1984, along with our […]
