One of my favorite things to write about is sports and I am lucky to be able to do something I enjoy every day. My specialties are football (NFL, NCAA) and horse racing, although I am interested and fluent in most major sports. Always an athlete growing up, I have that player's love for the game, and most games, that the majority of athletes or former athletes can appreciate and understand. Growing up near Saratoga Springs, N.Y.—home to one of the most historical horseracing tracks in the country—I was also able to develop a fiery passion for The Sport of Kings and all that comes with it. Mix those passions with my love of writing, and, although I'm no mathematician, I think that adds up to a career.

    The Yankees have put together an unbelievable streak of magical wins, but is Yankee Stadium and its short right field porch New York’s “magic wand?” Can sitting back and waiting for a solo HR really translate to October success?


    Thanks in advance! I would love to hear your feedback and comments. Take care.

    The new Yankee Stadium had been criticized for its lack of intensity and electricity in the early months of the season, but this weekend’s series against the Red Sox finally make a familiar place seem like HOME.


    Thanks in advance, and I would look to hear your opinions and feedback. Take care.

    Yankee fans rooting for the Red Sox? Has hell frozen over, or is there a rational thought process at the root of it all. Read why it is ok for you to root for Boston on select occasions without feeling like Benedict Arnold.


    Thanks in Advance! I would love to hear your feedback.

    There has always been a connection between religion and sports, and Major League Baseball has certainly not been the exception to the rule.

    Check out the All-Catholic lineup…the best Catholic names (by position) in MLB history.


    Thanks as always!

    A-Rod’s 2009 salary is $33 million. What is the best team (9 hitter lineup with DH, 5 SPs, 1 RP, and a CL) you could create using only his salary as a budget, and no more than 5 players allowed to be making less than $1 million? You would be surprised…

    After the great success of my first article about the uniform numbers 1-10, I have come back with the next installment, with the best players to wear the uniform numbers 11-20. I hope you can take a look and even comment on my choices. Thanks in advance!

    The turmoil surrounding the 1977 Yankees earned them the nickname of “The Bronx Zoo.” The current 2009 Yankees have an interesting blend of leaders and pranksters, so I decided to create a LITERAL “zoo.”

    Check out what animal each Yankee would be reincarnated as in a next life.


    Thanks everyone!
