I’m So Mad

It’s Monday morning and I’m fuming. My anger has little to do with the Knicks losing to Toronto on Sunday night. Instead it’s my other winter team that has drawn my ire. The New York Jets.

A loss would have put the Jets in position to have the third overall pick in the draft. But with their victory, they slide down to 6th. Let me …continue reading

Knicks 101, Celtics 95: The Bleeding Stops, At Least For One Night

New York Knicks 101 Final Recap | Box Score 95 Boston Celtics Amar’e Stoudemire, PF 26 MIN | 9-16 FG | 2-2 FT | 7 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 3 TO | 20 PTS | +14 Really strong offense.

Reasons in favor would be the existence of other similar environments which could sustain life. …continue reading
