Old School, New School

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

Change I Wish We Could Believe In

on
All right — college football is finally here. As I’m sure you could guess, I’ve been waiting a long time for this weekend. There’s nothing better than watching college football — except, of course, watching NFL football. And that’s just five days away. 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]

It’s Never Too Early

on

In all honesty, I’ve heard enough about baseball being America’s “national pastime”, because it just blatantly isn’t. As much excitement as there is at […] [Read More]

The (Amazing) Decision

on
Good for The King. After weeks of uncertainty and chaos, the monkey is off of LeBron’s back. He’s headed to South Beach to share a city, a paycheck, fame, and a basketball with D-Wade and Chris Bosh. As I’ve mentioned previously, I firmly believe that LeBron doesn’t owe Cleveland — and certainly not New York […] [Read More]

Happy NBA Free Agency!

on
Not to beat a dead horse about LeBron and free agency, but it is officially July 1. Knicks fans’ calendars are done being Xed. LeBron is no longer contractually obligated to remain a Cleveland Cavalier. Now you already know my take on how he should make his decision, and unfortunately you were forced to read […] [Read More]

LeBron: Get Out While You Can

on
The Lake Show took down the Celtics in 7. John Wall headlined a fairly boring draft class. So that’s it, right? No more NBA until November? Not so fast. The long-awaited July 1, 2010 is approaching, the beginning of the most star-studded free agency period in league history. While stars such as Dwyane Wade, Chris […] [Read More]
