    Michael Sam's Gay...Now, Who's Gonna Draft Him?

    The returns would seem to be in regarding the NFL's acceptance of University of Missouri senior Michael Sam, the league's first openly gay player -- or at least the man who would be the league's first openly gay player if he's drafted in May. Shannon Sharpe, former All-Pro and now commentator for C ... More >>

    Newly Opened Bottomzup Mixes Games, Gadgets, and Grub

    Possibly the last thing you'd expect to see at a sports bar called Bottomzup (344 Third Avenue) is a raw bar, where sushi is rolled before it's delivered promptly to tables. Barely dressed women hawking wings and beer seems more likely, but the only scantily clad thing here is the shellfish. The gam ... More >>

    Jets Coaching Staff Chokes Again

    You Jets fans out there - how did you feel when, after dominating the 4th quarter and tying the Patriots 23-23 with two minutes left to play, the Jets recovered a fumble at the New England 18-yard line? Be honest: Didn't you think the Jets were the better team, at least on this day? I certainly d ... More >>

    A Backwards Look at the Giants' Super Bowl Finish

    A piece by Jim Trotter in this week's Super Bowl issue of Sports Illustrated puts the Ahmad Bradshaw ass-first game-winning touchdown run in new perspective. With the Patriots leading 17-15 and a little more than a minute to play, the Giants had the ball on 2nd-and-6 at New England's six-yard line. ... More >>

    Don't Care About Football? Care About New York.

    This blogger doesn't like football. If she's going to watch a sport it's going to be baseball and she's going to root for the Yankees. Therefore, this Super Bowl Sunday, this blogger is not going to tell you which players to watch. In fact, the only ones she really feels qualified to even mention ar ... More >>

    New England Patriots' Plan: Give New York Giants Gronk-itis

    ​If you're looking for a reason to believe as the Giants prepare to face the Patriots on Sunday -- that is, besides Madonna's preference for Eli Manning over Tom Brady -- don't look back to the 17-14 Super Bowl victory over New England four years ago. The Giants started the year not knowing ... More >>

    This Football Sunday, Please Don't Videotape Your Child Crying

There's nothing better for a family to do today than get together on the couch, microwave up some cheese dip, and watch eleven hours of football. These are great tim ... More >>

    Jets Beat the Steelers Twice In a Row? Why Not?

    ​Let's get one thing out of the way right off: I'm hearing a lot of people on blogs and talk shows saying things like "I don't know if it really means anything that the Jets beat the Steelers (22-17) five weeks ago. It's tough to beat a good team twice in one season." Well, sure, it's toug ... More >>

    Is It Time to Say Bill Belichick and Tom Brady Are Overrated?

    ​Beli-choke? I've always thought that a large part of what they call the Sports Illustrated "jinx" is simply faulty analysis. For instance, the cover of last week's issue of SI featured New England's 325-pound offensive tackle, Vince Wilfork, and a story by Peter King on "why New England W ... More >>

    Jets Chances Over Patriots? Not Very Promising

    ​If you look at it on paper, the Jets have a pretty decent chance on Sunday against the Patriots. New England averages 364 yards a game on offense to the Jets 351, a negligible difference. In fact, not so big a difference as their defenses: the Pats allowed 366 yards a game on defense, the Je ... More >>

But our favorite descriptive word was on the back cover of that day's Daily News: "Party's Over for Jets after Monday Night Disgrace in Foxborough." (Although ESPN ... More >>
