Paul Rudd invites fans to his mom's house for kegger following Royals sweep

Paul Rudd invites fans to his mom’s house for kegger following Royals sweep

We can’t get enough Royals right now. They’re the team to root for, if your team is long-gone (see: Me/Mets). Likable young bunch. “Dunce” manager whose team plays for him. Postseason-starved city livin’ a dream. Now, you can add approachable celebrity fans to the mix. Last night, following KC’s sweep of the O’s and ticket-punching […]

Royals have "we don't suck anymore" postseason apparel

Royals have “we don’t suck anymore” postseason apparel

The Kansas City Royals magical postseason continues. After a 2-1 victory at home over the O’s last night, KC is one win away from the World Series in¬†their first postseason appearance in 30 years. It’s been a long time since 1985 when the Royals were¬†baseball royalty. Fans and the team acknowledge such. In fact, they’re […]

Nats awesome Jayson Werth gnome playoff promo

The Washington Nationals begin their 2014 postseason journey in a few hours in D.C. as they get set to face the San Francisco Giants. The ‘Natitude around the capital city is strong to quite strong, so tickets are not easy to come by. However, the Nats are opening up a unique opportunity to a few […]

Bronson’s Arroyo’s Pearl Jam ‘Alive’ Cover

Pete Rose. The Mayor, Sean Casey. Bronson Arroyo. ALL the Reds stars of every era!! Am I right? Am I right? OK, maybe it wasn’t exactly the all-time Reds hall of fame. Still, it was a decent gathering of Cincy Red Legs. Eddie and the gang were in town to rock the Queen City. They […]

Missing the magic of postseason: Benny and the Mets

Missing the magic of postseason: Benny and the Mets

The chill — and the chills -of October. The crowds. Postseason slogans. Waving towels. Drama. Storybook tales. I love every minute of it. I also miss it horribly. As I’ve managed to sneak in a few minutes here and there of the initial contests of this 2014 baseball postseason, it’s reminded me about all that […]

Mets Rep NBA Style on Flight to Denver, Jay Horwitz Wins the Day

Mets Rep NBA Style on Flight to Denver, Jay Horwitz Wins the Day

This is why social media can be fun. It often gives us a glimpse into our favorite teams, players and the “life” of athletes off the field — moreso than would have been possible before. Case in point? The New York Mets NBA-themed road trip. My Metros take on the Rockies tonight in Denver. Prior […]

To my darling daughter before her first Mets game...I'm sorry

To my darling daughter before her first Mets game…I’m sorry

This Sunday, I’ll travel to CitiField with my wife and daughter to watch my beloved New York Metropolitans face the Bravos on Easter. It will be my two-and-a-half year old’s first major league baseball game. I can’t wait. Maybe Mr. Met will be dressed like a bunny. Heck, maybe the Mets will even win. Regardless, […]

Hope Springs for Mets...

Hope Springs for Mets…

It’s happening again. You KNOW better. You KNOW that one shouldn’t allow it to happen. Yet, it does. You hear of old players with “new” bodies. Sucker. Young arms popping mitts and turning heads. Fleeced. Veterans imparting all their experience and wisdom to the most promising of the prospects. Sap. Spring fever is the air […]

Rangers Catcher JP Arencibia with Killer Tim Kurkjian Impression on ESPN

Rangers Catcher JP Arencibia with Killer Tim Kurkjian Impression on ESPN

We’re big Timmy Kurkjian fans here at The Legend. Great baseball insight. Passionate guy. And, perhaps most importantly, not a guy who takes himself too seriously. There’s a lot to be said for humility and the ability to laugh at oneself…particularly when someone’s riffing off your schtick. As a side note, this was one of […]

Ray Liotta narrates field of dreams intro

It sounded like it would have all the elements. The well-known narrator. An idyllic setting. The game’s biggest stars. In the end…meh. Could’ve been better MLB Network. Much better.

Youngster leaves school with "Buccos Fever"

Youngster leaves school with “Buccos Fever”

I used to love skipping out on school for the first game of the baseball season. Luckily, we had a great principal who was perfectly accepting of those sudden “illnesses” that always seemed to pop up around right around opening day. It’s one reason we can appreciate this amazingly awesome note excusing one young Pirates […]

Todd Helton stays classy with farewell ad in Denver Post

Todd Helton stays classy with farewell ad in Denver Post

Some trends get old quickly. I can’t say the athlete “thank you” ads to the fans is one of those. It’s a classy move by a player and, despite how it may feel because of the media coverage of such outward displays of gratitude, is still relatively infrequent. Here’s the latest example from longtime Colorado […]
