Happy Birthday: Tommy Chong (And Others)

May 24, 2017By Patrick Moran

Happy Birthday to legendary movie refer addict Tommy Chong, who turns 78 today. Holy shit, I can’t believe that dude is 78 years old.  Chong, along with Cheech Martin made being a pothead cool to many in several movies and comedy albums over the 1970’s and 80s.  Among their best were “Up In Smoke” (1978), … Read More

May 23, 2017By Patrick Moran

Happy Birthday to former middleweight boxing legend “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler, who turns 63 today.  Hagler against my boxing idol, Sugar Ray Leonard in 1987 may be my favorite fight of all-time.

Yanks Literally Turning Their Fortunes Around

May 4, 2017By Patrick Moran

The Yankees are literally turning their fortunes around from where they were a year ago.  Last night’s come from behind 8-6 victory over the Blue Jays saw them improve to 17-9 in 2017.  A year ago at this it was the complete opposite with New York off to a 9-17 start.  They find themselves a … Read More

Yanks 9, Cards 3 #UnbeatableAtHome

April 16, 2017By Patrick Moran

Literally around 24 hours ago I wrote that Greg Bird should spend some time in the minors to work on a swing that looked overmatched for MLB pitching.  To quote the great Chris Jericho, I am a “stupid idiot”. After tonight I think Bird may win a battle title.  Entering the game with one hit … Read More

Yanks 3, Cards 2 #SixPackOfWins

April 15, 2017By Patrick Moran

Last night I said the New York Yankees were victorious in one of the more exciting games I’ve seen in quite some time.  This afternoon they won in one if the weirder ones. The Bombers did a lot of whiffing at the plate; striking out a franchise record-tying 17 times.  However, they also drew eight … Read More
