Even if nobody else sings along

Everyone remembered to watch (or at least tape) Lost, right? Where we learned for certain that what’s in the hatch is — SPOILER ALERT — Mama Cass records? (Yes, in case the visual didn’t tip you off, I watch way too much television.) So there was a game tonight; a way-too-long yet surprisingly-irrelevant recap follows. […] [Read More]

Sims to be hockey season

on
(Is that the first of many bad puns, or did I drop one before? Either way, many apologies.) OK, who’s ready? Chris Madden plays the first half of the game at Simsbury Wednesday night; Frederic Cloutier gets the second half. Defense pairings weren’t set, but if you make the trek to Simsbury, you’re incredibly likely […] [Read More]

Trivia time! (What the heck.)

on
Let’s have a little fun and see who’s reading this thing. Carolina released Jim Cummins on Saturday. Cummins holds a special place in Sound Tigers history; you might say, in a way, that he’s No. 124, at least for another nine days. So just what’s so special about Jim Cummins and the Sound Tigers?

Syosset’s a bit of a commute for a 10 a.m. practice, even if it is for a Cole Jarrett story. But I rolled out of bed. Had to go boldly against misfortune. Most of practice, for me, was spent figuring out who was who. One whole line and about half of the other players were […] [Read More]

Here it begins

A lot of my favorite songs, weirdly, have some kind of anxiety component to them*. A kind of a separation anxiety, I guess. “I Fought the Law.” I miss my baby, and-a good… fun. (That’s what Sonny wrote, but is it what Bobby sang? Depends on your version.) “Louie Louie.” She’s across the darn sea! […] [Read More]

Bonus content! (Kind of)

on
You might have noticed… space in print has been at a premium lately. Lots going on all at once. So a story I wrote up Thursday, after a brief morning chat with Dave Baseggio, had to be held; it’s probably out of date. But the salient points were that, pretty much, he’s been impressed all […] [Read More]

Petty Jealousies

on
Cole Jarrett is scoring goals, Mike Milbury is making a mockery of my amateur BST depth chart by saying he might keep 23 instead of 22… …Mark Parrish is walking in at 6 a.m., and the NY corps is hanging out with Sarge Nemchinov*… [Read More]
