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

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 […]

Crying youngster captures essence of Chicago Cubs fandom

Crying youngster captures essence of Chicago Cubs fandom

The Chicago Cubs haven’t won a championship in 105 years. During that century-plus, the Cubbies have not only lost. They’ve made a habit of finding new and creative ways to torture their fans. Sadly, Wednesday’s tilt at Wrigley against the Diamondbacks was simply another sterling example of the Cubs being the Cubs. And I’m not […]

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, […]

Mike Pelfrey Poorly Tries to Pump Up His Alma Mater Wichita State Shockers

Mike Pelfrey spent several years in Queens as a member of my beloved Mets. As much as he often pained me with his on-field performance, he was always a stand-up guy. Pelfrey is now a member of the Minnesota Twins and pitched his college days at Wichita State. He’s a big Shockers backer. So, his […]

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 […]

Dick's Sporting Goods "The Glove": My Perfect Christmas Commercial

Dick’s Sporting Goods “The Glove”: My Perfect Christmas Commercial

It came on again during the Knicks game the other night, and I turned to my wife and commented. “No need for a new holiday commercial when you’ve already perfected it. That’s what great advertising can do. I’d be running the same spot year after year too, if it was this.” I was talking about […]
