April 14, 2017By Patrick Moran

Let’s make one thing abundantly clear before proceeding. When  on the pages of MoranAlytics you’ll refer to Kenny Loggins as “Sir” Kenny Loggins.  You’ll do so without fail.  Neglecting to address the utlimate movie soundtrack performer of all the times as anything other than Sir Kenny Loggins will find you eternally banished in these eyes.

Yanks 3, Rays 2 #SevyAndHicksShow

April 13, 2017By Patrick Moran

It took nine games to arrive there but the New York Yankees got over the .500 hump tonight. Aaron Hicks went deep twice to deliver all the offense, Luis Severino was superb on the bump and the highly touted tandem of Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman closed the door on the Tampa Rays as the … Read More

April 13, 2017By Patrick Moran

I woke up this morning and within minutes was ready to throw up all over my laptop rather than enjoy my breakfast.  It’s not attributed to food poisoning, drinking expired milk or an illness such as cough due to cold No, it’s because of a Tweet from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport—that bastard.

Yanks 8 , Rays 4 #AaronJudge&Jury

April 12, 2017By Patrick Moran

Through four innings at least, the Tampa Rays completely muzzled the sweltering New York Yankee bats. The way the Bomber offense is going these days, that’s not nearly enough.

Favorite 100 Songs of the 80s: (#96) Madonna – Papa Don’t Preach

April 11, 2017By Patrick Moran

There’s two things I recall so vividly when “Papa Don’t Preach” was released in 1986—Instantaneously it turned into one of my favorite Madonna songs (with plenty of other contenders), and even more so the total shit-storm it caused from haters protestors. Critics in general and women particularly lost their damn minds over some of the lyrics— … Read More

Raw Recap: Braun Is Everything

April 10, 2017By Patrick Moran

Let’s skip the pleasantries and dive right into Monday’s Raw recap from Long Island, New York on “Superstar Shakeup” night: ♦ John Cena’s music hits, but it’s the Miz and Maryse playing dressup who come out. They’re interrupted by Intercontinental champion Dean Ambrose and after some bantering hits Miz with Dirty Deeds.  That’s three new … Read More
