Back in October 2016 I was the emcee at a fundraiser for JP Honsinger in Latham. It was a wonderful event for a young man battling childhood alzheimer's and because of JP's love for all things sports, the theme of the fundraiser, appropriately enough, was Wide World of Sports. At this event, I was introduced to a young man named Ian Anderson. He was 18-years-old, fresh out-of-high school, and j
I am a die-hard Jets fan but this season it has been fun to root for the Bills. It makes it easier because my son, Ryan, and Jenn are from Buffalo and a huge part of Bills Mafia. It is an understatement to say that our household was devastated at the overtime loss this weekend.
The Buffalo Bills haven't won a playoff game since 1995 and this Saturday at 4:30 when they take on the Houston Texans, it will be just the second time since the since the 90's that they're even playing in one. Yet Bills fans are as excited as ever about the thought of their team making some serious noise in these NFL playoffs.
Big shout-out to U Albany head football coach Greg Gattuso and the Great Danes for receiving an automatic bid into the College Football Championship tournament. Coach Gattuso has become a favorite of mine and Chrissy's throughout the years and while we're happy for him professionally, we're even more thrilled for coach personally. Always a stand-up guy, he's appeared on our show even when the te
Sadly, they'll be no meaningful football this Christmas for any of the New York teams, even though Giant fans came into the season with reason for optimism. With their loss to the Eagles on Sunday, the New York Giants' modest two game winning streak is over. Finally, the 3-8 Giants have been put out of their misery and fans can stop talking about 'running the table' and making a push toward the N
Most baseball fans in attendance, and watching on TV, will remember last nights Yankee game for the heartbreaking way the season came to an end at the expense of the Red Sox. For many other fans, especially here in the Capital Region, we will remember the heartwarming way the game began: with classy, warm, touching tribute that honored the victims of the Schoharie tragedy.
I seriously can't wait for these two teams to battle it out in the ALDS starting on Friday night. I'm a lifelong Yankee fan and nothing would please me more than to beat the Sox and advance one step closer to the World Series. I'm also a realist. This is a very tough task as the Red Sox have had a monster year winning a million games. Who are you taking between these two heated - and hated - riva
The Albany Empire have had a dream season in their inaugural season as Arena Football returned to the Capital Region for the first time in nearly two decades. After starting the year 0-2, the Empire used a stingy defense and a high octane offense to capture the league's best record and secure the #1 seed overall in the AFL. The Empire (8-4) will play their first ever playoff game on the road vs.
This whole story is fantastic and keeps getting better. Days after Cincinatti Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton led a Cincinnati comeback over the Baltimore Ravens, propelling the Bills into the playoffs for the first time in 17 years, the lovefest continues between #BillsMafia and their new hero QB.
When Shaker grad Tommy Kahnle was drafted by the Yankees in 2010 it was a dream come true for the local flamethrowing pitcher. Last night, he was called upon to prevent a Bronx nightmare from happening when he entered the game in the 8th inning, the lead in jeopardy, and the Yankee season on the line. Latham, New York stand up!! Your hometown boy was filthy last night.
While the Yankee win last night was quite satisfying, there was nothing enjoyable about the top of the 6th inning. That's when Bronx Bomber catcher Gary Sanchez got drilled right in the jewels by a foul ball he couldn't hang on to. It was a painful night even though the Yanks won the game. However I feel like we all may have died a little on the inside when Gary had a moment, that was quite sca
