My name is Phil Hoops. I am a diehard New York Mets fan, who enjoys watching and writing about the ball club. I currently cover the Mets on an in depth basis at Mets Merized Online.

In addition to that, I am the sports writer for GlocallyNewark.com, which is a lifestyle blog that focuses on Newark, NJ. There I cover everything from NJ Devils hockey to minor league baseball.

I would definitely recommend checking out both sites, as from time to time I post exclusive articles there that are not found anywhere else. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

    It's a tiny bit late as it took longer than expected to write it, but my review of 2009 is finally here! Last year's one won the AOTD award and hopefully I've done enough on this one to equal that feat, but I'll leave you to be the judge of that!

    With 25 great moments from 12 different sports, and with everyone from Barcelona to France, the Yankees to the Lakers, and Usain Bolt to Tiger Woods there is something for everyone in this slideshow, plus a ranked top ten as the final slide!

    If you get a chance would you mind checking it out? Cheers!

    The NBA Hall of Fame recently announced its 2010 nominees. Do you think Mark Jackson will be getting a call from the Hall?
