The Orioles seemed to have surprised the baseball world with their start to the year- but the cracks are showing…
Funny what you find out….
I was having a shower one night and something hit me: if I love the sports world, then I should have take a valid interest in what’s happening behind the scenes, instead of in front of it.
And after doing some research, here’s what I found out:
“Yankees suck!” is a popular chant around Major League Baseball stadiums for years. And for 1996-2004, you’d probably be able to argue. But in 2005, your writer, a true, die-hard Yankee fan, would be inclined to agree…..
Here we go again….
One week into a season, it’s a little unusual to see two teams with sub-par records hate each other so intensely. Unless, of course, you’re the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees.
The Fallout from the Summer of ’98
A Briton shouldn’t really love baseball. In fact, why in the hell would you love a game that’s a little to close to a girl’s game we call Rounders?
Truth be told, if I hadn’t fallen in love with New York City during a trip to the place in the 80s, I probably wouldn’t have liked baseball. And if I hadn’t spend endless summer vacations inside watching WGN TV and the crazy Harry Caray, I probably wouldn’t have fallen in love with the game.
March Madness: why I root for me
March Madness is just no fun when you lose out on bragging rights…
Normally I love the underdog. But you didn’t hear me scream “Go Bucknell! Go Vermont! Go West Virginia!” on the first weekend of March Madness. Why? Because I didn’t pick them in my March Madness pool. And as is the case of anything I do, I hate losing.
Yankees suck….at Spring Training
If you’re the Yankees, you shouldn’t have a horrible 7-10 record in Spring Training. With injuries aplenty marring March hope, we know that George and his merry men can’t wait to leave Disney for Yankee.
The Trot Nixon situation
I’ve been kept awake thinking of how to write about the latest round of prepubescent bitching between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees.
Some naysayers in the city of not-so brotherly love (aka New York), have been saying that maybe George Steinbrunner made a mistake getting the Big Unit instead of Big Carlos.
Sportscolumn’s Alex Ferguson argues his case for the mulleted one…
