The Yankees postpone Monday’s game because of the Solar Eclipse
April 5th, 2024 under Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

In case you haven’t heard, there is going to be a Solar Eclipse on Monday. Therefore, people are planning on watching it even though it is happening during the middle of the day.

Case in point. It is expected to last between 2:09 p.m. and 4:37 p.m. in NYC, the exact time the New York Yankees were slated to play the Florida Marlins.

I put that in the past tense because they changed the start time. The team wrote, “After discussions with Major League Baseball, the scheduled start time of the Yankees-Marlins game on Monday, April 8 at Yankee Stadium has been changed from 2:05 p.m. to 6:05 p.m.”

As a compensation to the fans who are attending the game, they are getting a Yankees Solar Eclipse T-Shirt presented by HubSpot.

I miss the days when they handed out baseball bats.

Back to the game. Doors will open at 2 p.m. If I were still in The Bronx, I would go to the stadium to watch it because I am sure it is going to look pretty cool from there.


No more kids for Eric Decker

Jessie James and Eric Decker have four children: Vivianne, 11, Eric Jr., 8, Forrest, almost 6, and Denver, 1 month. But will they have baby #5?

No way in hell! That is because the NFL player got snipped, as in he got a vasectomy. And just like Gloria Gaynor, he wanted to let us know, “I survived.”

While he might have survived being fixed, will he survive raising four kids? Time will tell. But I wish him luck!


I thought bats were in baseball and not basketball
January 29th, 2024 under Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

Things took a foul turn at Saturday’s San Antonio Spurs/Minnesota Timberwolves game. That is because a bat decided he wanted to be part of the action.

Therefore, the action had to take a time out so that the Spurs’ mascot, The Coyote, dressed in a Batman costume with a net, could try to catch the Vampire on the court as the Batman theme played in the background.

This is not the first time he has caught a bat. He has done this twice before.

And the third time was a charm for him because former Spurs player Manu Ginobili was in the stands watching. You see, Manu once caught a bat barehanded during a game in 2009.

Who knew bats preferred basketball over other sports? But they do!


Dallas Mavericks’ Dwight Howell learned why tall people don’t skip inside 
September 19th, 2023 under Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

Dwight Powell gives new meaning to slam dunk when he slammed his head into the top of a door.

How did the Dallas Mavericks center do that? He was skipping in the tunnel. And at 6’11”, that was not the smartest thing for him to do inside because he is close enough to the ceiling as it is.

Hopefully, it knocked some sense into him. If not, I am sure Mark Cuban will do it.


Watch Jon Bon Jovi react to a stadium singing Livin’ on a Prayer
September 12th, 2023 under Bon Jovi, NKOTB, Sports figures. [ Comments: none ]

Jon Bon Jovi is a traitor to his home state of New Jersey. That is because instead of supporting the New York Jets or the New York Giants, he is team New England Patriots. Which is as much of a sin as a girl from The Bronx supporting the New York Mets over the New York Yankees.

But this is not about me. It is about the singer. On Sunday, he went to the Patriots game in Boston, and Gillette Stadium played Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer. Whether you love the band or not, you are going to belt out that chorus. And that is exactly what the Boston and Philadelphia Phillies fans did. Much to the delight of Bon Jovi, who was seen rockin’ out with the crowd.

Even Donnie Wahlberg thought the fans had the right stuff to sing along! And Jovi was in New Kids on the Block territory.

Now, back to Bon Jovi. Can someone please explain to me why they never did the Super Bowl Halftime Show? They would’ve brought down the house. But that is never going to happen because Jon says the NFL blew their chance of ever having them play.
