Subway Series Has Lost Its Luster

It sure isn't 1997 anymore.  Tiger Woods was young then.  Brett Favre and John Elway were still slinging passes.  MTV was cool.  Derek Jeter was in his prime.  Michael Jordan was dunking on people.  People couldn't start rumors on Facebook and Twitter.  Instant messaging was considered cool.  Television shows were real without the "ity" at the end.  And United States foreign relations were strong.  Ah, and the Subway Series was fun.

Yankees-Mets Series Preview

The Subway Series is here again.  This of course is more for the fans and the media, but there are some terrific New York baseball storylines to this one.  First thing is first.  The Yanks come fresh off an impressive series win in Tampa Bay, where they seem to never win games. The Mets continue to be a disaster, losing a series to Atlanta and getting no consistent hitting or depth in the starting rotation.  Don't forget, these two teams play two at Citi Field and then hit the Bronx for two at Yankee Stadium in this quirky four-game set.  Here is a Subway Series preview.

LeBron James Needs To Stop Crying to The Refs

Let's start this piece by being very clear.  LeBron James is incredible.  LeBron James has carried himself the right way since entering the league years ago (save that little "taking my talents to South Beach thing").  He has won MVP after MVP after MVP after MVP.  He has exceeded the hype, the hardest thing in sports to do, especially when you are the most hyped athlete of all-time.
