Like you and everyone else in NYC, I am in love with Jeremy Lin. Sometimes love can be baffling. By baffling I mean how the f**k is this happening? By now you should know just about everything about Jeremy Lin. If not, please go find some other mediocre gonzo blog to read. I was at [...]

My New Friends

Although my resume says I’m a college sports aficionado, I’m no recruiting guru. Many college sports fans are though. I suppose the allure is to get the inside scoop on future stars. It’s a warm cutesy feeling to discover a player, or at least knew about him from the very start. My buddy Lil Daddy [...]

I know as much, or as little, of what ails Lebron James as you do. A bunch of talented sportswriters went all Fraud and dissected the dethronement of the King. The Sports Section blog summarizes the media reaction. The Sports Guy also brilliantly lays it down in his Game 6 retro diary (better reading than [...]

Soccer in the USA

There’s the national teams and international competitions, the top four European leagues (EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A), UEFA Champions League (all the best teams throughout Europe) and ingenious in-season tournaments [...]

Thanks Andy

Let’s turn back the clock to March 1995 where a recently bar-mitzvahed Littyhoops is KILLING it at Yankees spring training in Fort Lauderdale (before they moved to Tampa). Cunning, savvy and fearless I was scooping up autographs like a PETA volunteer at Bonnaroo. If you’re ever in need of a baseball with the scribbled name [...]

Listen my children and you shall here of the scoring spree of the Jimmer Fredette. BYU’s senior point guard leads the nation in scoring with over 27 points per game. He’s topped 40 in three of his last four games highlighted by an electric 43 point performance as BYU knocked off previously undefeated #4 ranked [...]

The Knicks Are Percolating

When Amare’s last millisecond three-pointer swished through the net I rose majestically off my couch with reckless abandon and roared with gusto. I had goose bumps. Even after I learned the game-winning basket would not count I was still energized and mesmerized. Wednesday night proved it. The Knicks are rejuvenated! It’s been a vexing and [...]

The Future of Rich Rodriguez: FAQ’s

I’m not a fan of Rich Rodriguez. Been giving him a hard time almost from the start. So these answers are biased…although I know I’m right. Q: Will Rich Rodriguez be fired? A: Yes…if it was up to me. But alas, it’s completely in the hands of Athletic Director Dave Brandon. Brandon is sticking to [...]

The NFL Takes A Devastating Blow

The NFL announced that it will strictly enforce its rules against dangerous and flagrant hits by penalizing players with substantial fines or even suspensions. This has everyone kibitzing (check out the ESPN crew go at it and Schlereth go bonkers) and for good reason. The message that the NFL is suddenly sending goes against the [...]
