didn’t I write a post about the mets just like this one a year ago?

September 29th, 2008 · No Comments

One year ago I sat at a sports bar in London as the Mets lost their final game of the season to the Florida Marlins which capped their historic collapse in which they blew their seven-game NL East lead with 17 games to go. Yesterday, the final day of the regular season, the Mets found […]

even in my dreams the NL loses

July 16th, 2008 · No Comments

Last night was the MLB All-Star Game, which the AL won 3-4 after 15 innings of battle. However, I only lasted until the 12th.  Well, more accurately, I lasted until the 9th, fell asleep, and woke up in the 12th and turned the TV off.  I proceeded to have at least two dreams about the […]

super bowl champions and a pie chart

February 5th, 2008 · 1 Comment

This past Sunday was the greatest Super Bowl ever.  Clearly I am biased because I am a New York Giants fan, but you have to admit that was an amazing game. Here are my personal highlights from the 2007 NFL Season: Watching the opening game of the season against the Cowboys on Tay-Tay’s crazy 50-something […]

the new american gladiators

January 6th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I’m writing this as a live-as-things-happen-post about NBC’s remake of American Gladiators. I’ve been so excited about this since I heard a few months ago that NBC was doing this. Opening – AMAZING. Fireworks and a montage of Gladiator events. Hulk Hogan yelling things. This season, instead of just random joes, we’re getting back-stories on […]

being a new york sports fan in philadelphia

December 9th, 2007 · No Comments

Since I entered college I’ve been fortunate enough to have all three of my favorite teams (Rangers, Mets, and Giants) be division rivals with Philadelphia teams (Flyers, Phillies, and Eagles), so the teams I like are in town fairly often. While I’ve seen the Mets multiple times in Philadelphia, the Giants come to town only […]

giants vs dolphins at wembley

November 1st, 2007 · No Comments

I saw my first ever live NFL game this past weekend. In February, the NFL announced that they would be holding an NFL regular season game in London in late October. The two teams picked to play were the Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants. Given that my team (the Giants, in case you […]

all things sports

October 3rd, 2007 · No Comments

Well, the big updates of things that have happened the past few days have revolved around sports. My flatmate and I found a sports bar in Central London that shows (American) football games. There’s nothing quite like traveling 1/4 of the way around the world only to end up hanging out with a bunch of […]

Rest In Peace, New York Mets 2007 Season. (Flushing, NY) The 2007 New York Mets Season (2007NYMS) died today after a tragic 8-1 loss to the Florida Marlins, which capped off the end of one of the Mets more memorable collapses. 2007NYMS was vibrant in its youth, starting in April with a record of 15-9, […]

sport

September 30th, 2007 · No Comments

Here in the UK, when referring to athletic completion, it’s not “sports”, but “sport”. Therefore, I will now drone on about sport. Mets – Today is judgment day. It’s the last day of the regular season, and their slide over the past couple of weeks has resulted in a potential four-way tie for the last […]

football and tea and wet rooms

September 26th, 2007 · No Comments

My bathroom is called a “wet room”. Why, you ask? Because there’s no shower curtain around the tub, so when I shower, the whole room gets wet. Bloody brilliant concept, if I do say so myself. It would be fine, but I don’t like getting my business socks wet. So after two days of “wet […]
