Remembering Wee Willie Keeler

With all the hype and hoopla about today’s mainly over-rated baseball players, with all the fuss about launch angles and shifts, “bullpenning” and instant replay over and over again by the non-stop talkers in the TV booths and on the field of play, it is refreshing to flash back to

The New York Jets Are a Lock To Take This Quarterback

When the New York Jets are on the clock at the 2018 NFL Draft in Arlington, Texas, which quarterbacks will be on the board? We all think we know but maybe the oddsmakers have a better idea? April 26th is the day. That’s just around the corner and the speculation is

The 1901 World Series Will Be Played

Throughout the long history of baseball there have been poignant, exciting, dramatic moments. But very few can compare to what happened on October 3, 1951 at the old Polo Grounds in New York City. Some refer to that time as "The Miracle at Coogan's Bluff." Others, especially in Brooklyn, call

Forget Playoffs For Big Blue

Hope springs eternal for the Giants and their fans. Every year is the Giants year according to them. Never mind they have stunk since winning the Super Bowl few years ago. This year is no different. Everyone has the Giants winning the Super Bowl again this year. All I can do
