Born 1951 - grew up near Yankee Stadium - so that team and sport are my first love. I am a Met fan too - I lost some passion for them during the Bobby V era, when they became very chippy. I'm more into them now. I enjoy both teams. All this Yankee/Met hate stuff is for bozos and is sports radio hype by people who get lost traveling out of their borough. We are lucky in NY to see every major league player at some point in the year.

I don't take Yankee winning for granted and don't need a World Series win to call a season a success. I went through the postseason droughts of 1965-1975 and then from 1982-1994. When a collapse comes again, I will enjoy the rebuilding as much as the victories. For that matter, the so called Yankees/Red Sox blood feud will die down when one of the teams reaches the end of its cycle and decides to break it down.

Always love the Knicks. More so the Willis Reed era than Patrick Ewing's . The earlier team was a finesse team, the latter, a muscle team. That being said, the Nets' Jason Kidd was my favorite NY basketball player. Absolutely stunning to see the court as he saw it and executed on it. Kidd defined point guard.

I followed the Giants since the Frank Gifford days and have followed the Jets back to before Joe Namath. It hard for me to find personality in the individual NFL teams. Some have great defensive ends, wide receivers, tight ends, quarterbacks, power runners or slashing runners. But I don't find much difference between one team and the other, except competence.

    Classic picture. It must have been a little awkward for those two to hvae to play on the same all-star team, one pitching and the other catching.
