Oct 29, 2013 3 Comments by

In 1992, my boss took me to The Spectrum in Philadelphia to see the NCAA  Men’s Division I East Regional final. With 2.1 seconds remaining in OT, Grant Hill threw a pass the length of the court to Christian Laettner, who dribbled once, turned, and hit a jumper as time expired to seal Duke’s 104-103 […]

The Rangers Can’t Lose (on the road)

Sep 22, 2013 No Comments

AJ was sailing along thru the first 2 innings; the crowd was into it cheering for every 3rd strike. A little bump in the 3rd inning and with a little help he gets through 2 more. Then the 6th inning happens and with the bottom of the 6th Holland takes all the wind out the […]

Met Memory – Another in a String

Aug 14, 2013 No Comments

There’s something special being a fan of any team to have ever played at Shea Stadium.. First of all there was the wind, and the bathrooms, but mostly the losing.

What MIGHT have been – the last Yankee post for 2010

Aug 11, 2013 No Comments

Even if what should have happened did happen, nobody outside the House that Ruth built would have known, cause in NY – the cable network that Fox is on was blacked out in  a “dispute” over money and the early games of the series basically didn’t exist. So, I didn’t watch the World Series, did […]

Theeeeeee Yankees win!

Oct 10, 2010 No Comments

Great win, a great sweep, they do it again to the Twins. Are Yankees this good or Twins this bad. It was nice night, starting with the elder statemen Yogi’s frist pitch, the young Yankee Hughes on the mound, then Mo one of the core four on the mound to end it. What history, the […]
