Phil Should Keep Talking

When Phil Mickelson whined the other day that his taxes were too high, I tweeted “Mickelson whining abt paying higher taxes, w $47.8 million in earnings. Greedy bastard. How abt work a hard job?” Apparently, the heat was a bit too much for him from other quarters and so now he’s apologizing about speaking up. Bad move.

The Super Bowl Commercial Peyton Manning Should Do

   There has been a lot of controversy about the pro-life television commercial that Florida quarterback Tim Tebow will appear in during Sunday’s Super Bowl. Here is one Peyton Manning should do–thank to our friends at the National Labor Committee: NFL jerseys have been sewn under illegal sweatshop conditions at the Chi Fung factory in […]

Baseball Picks

Alright, sports fans (since I’ve never done a reader poll, I have no idea how many of you even care). I’ve got my Opening Day tickets for Monday for Yankee Stadium (I like the idea that we start the season playing the Devil Rays, although they were pretty pesky two years ago). Here are my […]

Screeners Get Rights

Well, here’s a good example of the difference a Democratic Senate makes. Yesterday, the Senate voted, essentially on party lines (Arlen Specter was the only Republican to join with the Democrats), to give airport screeners the right to unionize. It was completely absurd to argue, as Republicans did, that allowing the workers to unionize would […]

No Gloating Zone

I just want to point out to the people who criticized my Super Bowl prediction–though, admittedly, I don’t consider myself a football expert–that I came within a touchdown and a two-point conversion from nailing the exact score and got the Bears’ point total precisely. No, I was too dumb not to bet on that one… […]

The Super Bowl

Now, you’all now that football is not my sport (thank god catchers and pitchers are getting back into action…sports begins with the crack of the bat). So, with that in mind: COLTS DEFEAT BEARS: 37-17 This is all dependent on the Colts stopping the Bears’ running game–and making Grossman throw the ball. Plus, I like […]

Today’s Games: The Picks

I was .500 in picks in the last round. So, here we go: New Orleans will beat the Bears. I have no other reason to believe this other than the city deserves it. Yeah, I’m sentimental. And, though I love the Windy City, never been much of a Bears fan. And never plan on running […]

Today’s Football Picks

So far, I’m two for two on this weekend’s games–though since I didn’t post anything, why would you believe me? So, to rectify that and get on record: San Diego 24, Patriots 17: sorry, Pats fans, it’s over. Seattle, 17, Chicago 10: It’s awful weather in Chicago and I see the Bears, with Rex Grossman […]

The World Series–Go Tigers!

Well, as many of you know, I am a Yankees season-ticket holder. When the boys from the Bronx were dispatched from the playoffs, I rooted for the Mets to go to the Fall classic–hey, I’m a New Yorker and how can you not root for success for Willy Randolph? Now that New Yorkers get to […]

Wait ‘Til Next Year–With Torre

I know that with North Korea exploding a nuke and four weeks out from an election I shouldn’t be digressing to such a minor topic as baseball but…Joe Torre should stick around as Yankees’ manager. I can hear the clicking of the mouse as many a reader goes off to another place and, bless you, […]

Pick Your Winner

So, today is a big day in sports for yours truly. I’ll be using the clicker to flip back and forth between the NCAA national basketball championship game and the game featuring those wonderful pinstriped boys from the Bronx (though rain is forecast out in Oakland so it may not come off). In hoops world, […]

Barry Bonds Perjured Himself

A little switch in subject today. I’ve been reading, here and there, about the new book about Barry Bonds and the questions about his steroid use. In fairness, I’ve never been a fan of Bonds–among the vast sea of self-centered sports figures, he seemed to be in a class of his own. He had his […]

Super Bowl Sunday

To be honest, I have no rooting interest in this game and I only watch because of the party that happens each year with a pile of folks. From my point of view, the whole football season is just filler time until pitchers and catchers report and a real sport gets back in motion.

Red Sox and the CIA

As I wrote last year, I was glad to see the Red Sox win—at least it would end the sorry whining each year from their fans. But, as I documented, then, the image of the poor downtrodden team that appealed to progressives seemed odd compared to their large payroll, all-white fan base (compared to the […]

Are the Red Sox Really So Virtuous?

So, it looks like the Red Sox will finally banish the demons and win a World Series for the first time since 1918. As a Yankee season ticket holder, I’m rooting for them–the Sox were the better team this year (The Yankees better record was bloated by feasting on the likes of Tampa Bay and […]
