fedor_400x400

On a night with wild finishes aplenty, it was the fight that barely got started that provided the wildest. Fedor Emelianenko, widely regarded as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time, was knocked out just one minute and fourteen seconds into his Bellator debut against fellow heavyweight Matt Mitrione in front of a raucous…

Mets Montero Spot On

montero

NEW YORK — Rafael Montero joins Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman as spot starters who continue to give the Mets solid performances. Montero wasn’t his best tonight, but he managed to throw five innings of shut-out baseball in his first major league start since April 2015. He didn’t make it look easy, though, allowing six…

Stop the Harvey Hate

Harvey_500x500

New York City is a “What have you done for me lately” kind of town. You must always be on you’re A-game to avoid criticism. This goes for athletes, Broadway performers, stand-up comedians, the guy dressed as Elmo in Times Square and even the guy on the 7-train playing the guitar for spare change. It’s what…

Jets Handling Fitz Contract Negotiations Just Right

Fitzpatrick-Ryan

Ryan Fitzpatrick is still a free agent. The same Ryan Fitzpatrick that threw 31 touchdowns last season and helped the Jets improve their win total by six games from the previous season. I have been campaigning for the Jets to bring back Fitzpatrick since the offseason has started, but it has to be at the…

Carmelo No Superstar

CarmeloAnthony

Carmelo Anthony’s tenure as a Knick has been a whirlwind. There were the highs of the Amare/Carmelo pairing in 2011, the Jeremy Lin saga in 2012 and the 54 win season in ’13. The lows consisted of the firing of Mike D’Antoni mid-season in 2012, the embarrassing sweep by the Celtics in ’11 and, well,…

Mets Must Sign Cespedes!

Cespedes

It’s an absolute disgrace that the Mets have not signed Yoenis Cespedes. He’s sitting out there on the surface of the ocean waiting to be reeled in. All the Mets need to do is put some bait on their fishing rod and reel him in. The problem, as always with the Mets, is they have…

Credit Minaya, Alderson for Mets Success

Minaya_Alderson

Last season, Sandy Alderson was helped out tremendously by Omar Minaya. Matt Harvey, Steven Matz & Jacob Degrom – Omar Minaya. Hey, even Juan Laggers, Jeurys Familia and Lucas Duda are Omar guys. But, four years from now we’ll be saying how great of a job Sandy did building his own system, watching the fruit…

Worry Not, Mets Fans!

Niese

As we reach the last two weeks of the season, the common theme among posters on internet boards and the Twittersphere is what to make of the last 48 hours. “Oh My God – is this 2007 and 2008 all over again?” “Are we going to blow it another time?” ‘We are doomed…” It’s time for…

Hofstra’s Season Ends with Heartbreaking Loss in CAA Semis

HofLoss

It was a game that had everybody in Royal Farms Arena either standing or on the edge of their seat. Twists and turns, lead changes, clutch shots, loose balls…you name it. Hofstra and William & Mary played one of the great games in CAA history Sunday afternoon in Baltimore, with the Tribe defeating Hofstra 92-91 in…

Hofstra Hoops Defeats JMU; Advances to CAA Semis

hofstraJMU

The Hofstra Pride men’s basketball team has long awaited a chance to go to the NCAA Tournament. Heck, they have barely had chances just go on a CAA Tournament run in March. The last time the Pride made the Big Dance was 14 years ago, way back in 2001. The last time they made the…

Bronx Ace or Yankee Disgrace?

Yankees

Each off-season Yankee fans typically resemble some of the unfortunate souls that sit in the first few rows at Sea World. Waiting idly by for the Steinbrenner family to turn over the behemoth Yankee checkbook and drench their fans with their pricey off-season acquisitions. Instead, this off-season fans were given a heavy dose of nostalgia…

Okposo’s Four Goals Lead Isles Into First Place

Kyle Okposo

It was a battle for first place in the Metropolitan Division last night at the Nassau Coliseum between the Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins. The game had all the makings of being one of the best of the regular season. The fans were not disappointed, as the Islanders treated them to a dramatic 6-3 victory led by Kyle Okposo’s…
