  1. Nikki Bella should not be a champion

    I don't watch WWE much anymore. Repetitive, stale, tired storylines. An owner who's out of touch with reality refusing to let his miracle worker son-in-law take over and work the same magic he's created in NXT. Need I go on? Well, I have to.

    For all of the praise heaped on Triple H for his work in retooling NXT down in Florida, he's forced to play the role his father-in-law, Vince McMahon, should've retired long ago, that of the evil, corrupt administrator, a storyline role that should've ...

  2. It feels like 1969 (or 1973) all over again

    No one thought the Mets would make the playoffs this year. Admittedly, I had them pegged for 2nd and at least in the hunt for a wild card.

    Then again, one could imagine the pundits felt the same way in 1969, when the Mets won their first World Series, and in 1973, when the Mets won the East with a late stretch run, and fended off Cincinnati before losing a 7-game World Series to Oakland.

    But as the Mets head home following an 8-2 road trip that saw them win the last ...

  3. In the end, it amounts to nothing

    In hindsight, the NFL went after the wrong guy, and lost.

    Judge Richard Berman, no relation to ESPN's Chris Berman (we think), overturned the 4 game suspension issued to New England Patriots QB Tom "Crybaby" Brady, which means trouble for the rest of the league. Crybaby will play with a bigger chip on his shoulder than usual when it all starts to count in a week's time vs. Pittsburgh.

    Ted Wells' report didn't exactly indict Brady for his involvement, such ...

  4. NESN decides Don Orsillo won't be back in the Red Sox booth in 2016--bad idea

    More than 40 years ago, when cable television was installed in my home, I became acquainted with Red Sox games on WSBK. At the time, venerable, versatile Dick Stockton was at the mic with Ken "Hawk" Harrelson. "Hawk" wasn't the over-the-top homer he is now for the White Sox, but before you knew it, both were gone. Stockton, of course, splits his time between Fox, the Oakland A's (at last check), and I believe TBS. Ned Martin took over sometime in the 80's, replaced in turn by ...

  5. Don't cry for the Jets-----yet

    I found it amusing that an online commentator suggested that the Jets would try to sign Rex Grossman to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick, rather than give rookie Bryce Petty (out of Baylor), a shot, with Geno Smith gone until October due to a broken jaw.

    What is it with some of these alleged geniuses throwing shade on the Jets before the first pre-season game??

    Grossman hasn't played in, what, nearly 4 years? He was schizophrenic, based on the comments from sportswriters who ...
