Before any of you comment on this article and call me clinically insane, let me preface everything by saying that I have no dog in this fight - I don't have any particular rooting interests for a certain NBA team, and even if I did, it wouldn't be any of the potential suitors for Dwight Howard (Hawks, Warriors, Mavericks, Rockets and Lakers). I have openly admitted several times on-air that I was a bigger College Basketball fan than I was an NBA fan growing up, and that holds true to this day, but I have opened myself to watching more regular season games.
It's no secret that I am a fan of professional wrestling - yes, I'm talking about the stuff you see on television with guys flying around in colorful tights with bright lights and big stages. However, it's not very often you see a network TV show be allowed to go behind the scenes and have an inside look at the personal life of these "larger than life" superstars.
If you are a fan of the UFC and Mixed Martial Arts in general, then you are well aware of the reputation he has for being controversial with the things he says about certain fighters and the sport in general. And this past Saturday during "Cady's Corner," the former Division 1 All-American college wrestler lived up to his reputation once again!
Over the course of the last few season, we have seen our fair share of young guys make an immediate impact in Major League Baseball. The first 2 guys that you probably think of are Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, but there's a number of others like Matt Harvey, Yasiel Puig and Zoilo Almonte.
Usually, when any of us write pieces on 1045theteam.com regarding former baseball player / steroid cheat Jose Canseco, it's because he is once again on suicide watch. However, this afternoon we present the comedic side of Mr. Canseco in one simple phrase.
Over the last few years, while I find both to be highly entertaining, I have still found myself drawn in more by the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff than the NBA Playoffs. Call me a pugilist or whatever you want, there's just something about the raw intensity that gets turned up a few notches when the NHL regular season concludes and the chase for Lord Stanley's Cup begins. And last night, the final minutes of the Stanley Cup Final were the pièce de résistance to another amazing year of NHL Playoff hockey.
Over the last 20 years, the popularity of Boxing has rapidly declined in the United States, mostly due to the precipitous drop in the amount of American talent and the decline of the Heavyweight division. However, there are still certain fights that will draw my attention, especially if they are being broadcast for free - such was the case this past Saturday, when "The Magic Man" Paulie Malignaggi defends his WBA Welterweight Title against Adrien "The Problem" Broner on Showtime.
I know it's been a few days since the NBA Finals closed out on-court activities for the 2012-13 season, but I found a video today that brought me immense joy. Miami Heat president Pat Riley is a legend in his own right for what he did as a head coach for the Lakers, Knicks and Heat - but now, he is a legend in the hearts and minds of men across the United States.
As you have probably been able to gather in recent months, I have always been a big supporter of getting Mixed Martial Arts legalized in the state of New York. It has been a huge passion of mine and a fight I have brought to both this website and our airwaves at 104.5 "The Team." Well this past Saturday, I took my very public fight to legalize MMA to a whole new level.
Guess who's back, back again? Tebow's back... in the news! Okay, forgive my attempt to quote an Eminem song, but you get the point - Ed Werder of ESPN has reported that Tim Tebow is signing with the New England Patriots and is expected to report to mini-camp on Tuesday.
Throughout my 3 and a half years with 104.5 "The Team," it has been well-documented both on-air and online my love for Mixed Martial Arts. I have guests on a fairly regular basis to talk about big news stories within the sport, preview big fights and even hit on some testy issues like marijuana usage and TRT (testosterone replacement therapy). On top of that, I have been a consistent proponent for getting MMA legalized in New York State, and the frustrations just continue to pile up.
After a very difficult week against the Mets and Red Sox that garnered only 1 win out of 7 games, the Yankees entered this week determined to bounce back, and they did exactly that with a 3-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians to wrap up their 8-game home-stand. Led by a complete game performance from CC Sabathia, the Yankees took the final game 6-4 earlier this afternoon and now head to the West Coast for a week and a half.
