Old School, New School

They both love sports. And that's about all they agree on…

BBall’s Back

on
Here we are in mid-October, and for some reason, the horrifically boring game of baseball is still prevalent on my TV. By no means is this my choice, but I can’t avoid it. Baseball playoff games. Highlights of baseball playoff games. Baseball umpires blowing easy, meaningful calls. These calls not getting reviewed by instant replay. […] [Read More]

The Return of Sunday Fever

on
For some reason, I always try to think if there is anything bad about football season. There’s the Dolphins. There’s my consistently-in-first-place fantasy team. There’s no more baseball (not to me, anyway). When you force yourself to dig deeper, however, there is one con that comes along with the plethora of pros. Sunday fever. Sundays […] [Read More]

The Most Exhilarating Game

on
Before I get to the main topic of my post, let us all rejoice in the fact that Dolphins-Jets week has arrived. As mentioned several times in this blog, these matchups create a Civil War-like atmosphere in the Herman household. My brother Matt and I are exiled to the playroom to root for the Fins […] [Read More]

Come On, Ravens

on
Here we are, one day into the NFL season, and sure enough, the Dolphins are ahead of the Jets in the AFC East standings. Naysayers will point to the fact that the Jets haven’t even played a game yet, but that’s just a small detail to me. As my dad has referred to in several […] [Read More]

Change I Wish We Could Believe In

on

As the college football season kicks off, I need to take a […] [Read More]

Another Reason To Hate Baseball

on
I’m gonna switch things up a bit. Although my dad has experienced life for five more decades than I have, thus making him the “old school” part of this blog, I actually have an old-school stance on an issue in baseball. As I miserably sit here and watch the Mets (believe me, there’s nothing else […] [Read More]

It’s Time To Give It Up

on
I apologize to any NFL-crazed, sick-of-baseball fans who are reading this, but I need to take the focus of this blog back to “America’s Pastime” (hopefully for the last time). I, like my two brothers, dog, and every other Mets fan I know, have given up on this season, and for good reason. The pitching […] [Read More]

His Fear is Our Fantasy

on
I always wonder what’s going on in my dad’s head. I mean, I think of myself as a pretty typical 21st century sports fan, except maybe a little more passionate than some. And we just don’t agree on anything. Take the fantasy football issue. Since every single male in the country plays it, and loves […] [Read More]
