We start this week with some reader feedback. Marcus responded to my complaints about SI arriving last last week with this comment: The SI’s always a day late on NCAA title week, because the game is late Monday night; SI’s deadline is usually Sunday events. It’s been like this for about 47 straight years, »

Before we jump into this week’s review, a quick message to the good folks at Time, inc. My Sports Illustrated arrived late this week, and that throws of my schedule. I am a loyal reader of your products, but I’m also a hopeless slave to routine.  I read Time Magazine at the gym on »

June 25, 2009, No Comments

Last night was the second annual “Showdown in Chinatown” charity soccer match featuring Steve Nash and Claudio Reyna. (The event was held at Roosevelt Park, the place where I am going to dominate Asian 3 on3 later this summer).  Unfortunately I was too lazy to attend, but luckily the guys at the Big League Screw »

Shaquille O’Neal states his case for a place on the United States soccer team as a backup goalie. After a Suns practice the team shot some balls at Shaq while he tended “net”. Steve Nash put one by the big man, but Leandro Barbosa didn’t fare as well. The ball had pace on it, »

Who’s Heading to Phoenix?

The NBA names its All Star reserves on Thursday night, but the Crackle names its All Star reserves on Tuesday afternoon. The two lists are bound to have some major differences. I have a slightly different philosophy on All Star teams than many others. A lot of talk this year has been about how »

Last night in the NBA was pretty eventful The Houston Rockets went into Phoenix and defeated the Suns, but the bigger story was the shoving match that ensued near the end of the third quarter.

In a funny parody to Kobe Bryant jumping over an Aston Martin; a couple of guys decide to pretend to be Shaq and Steve Nash jumping over an Escalade. Hilarious! »

Therapy Best, Football Test and SNL Obsessed

This may be shocking to long time readers, but I’ve never been to therapy. I’ve thought about it in the past, but I always came up with reasons not to go.  I’ve spent a lot of time in my own head (socially disassociated) thinking about my own personality (self obsessed) and I think I’ve »

I go to a lot of professional sporting events. I’m going to the Ranger game tonight. I went to the Knick game Saturday. I’m a partial season ticket holder for both the Yankees and Rangers.  As longtime readers know, I prefer doing nothing to doing almost anything. I would rather be home on the »
