Former Mets, Red Sox Manager Bobby Valentine Shows Why He's Both Loved And Hated In One Night
I’m rarely apprehensive about covering something, but I was a bit Tuesday night. I wanted to make sure I was objective and gave Bobby Valentine a fair shake, considering some of the things I’ve said about him on this website. Listening to him speak for about an hour, then talking to him briefly personally, I got the full Bobby Valentine experience. At times, he’d completely won me over. Hearing him charm a crowd in Southington, Conn., I was willing to overlook his season in Boston. Someone this smart and this engaging, I figured, can’t be hated. Then, as the stories went on and on, the disbelief many in the media have felt listening to Valentine started to set in. Either some of this is made up or Valentine is baseball’s Forest Gump.

College Football Bowl Picks 2014: BCS National Championship No. 1 Florida State vs No. 2 Auburn
Thirty-four bowl games have been played since mid-December. A lot of them have been exciting, some have been shocking, some even were duds. But all of the bowl games that came before Monday night won't come anywhere near the battle on the field between No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn in the BCS national championship game. The two best teams in college football will play for the ultimate crown, and there is no reason to believe it won't be an epic conclusion to this tremendous season.

Red Sox Vs. Cardinals World Series Preview: Full Series Breakdown As Boston And St. Louis Renew Fall Classic Rivalry; Red Sox Will Win In 6
The last six months come down to nine days at the end of October. The World Series isn’t a single-elimination setup like the NCAA Tournament or Super Bowl, so the seven-game series format has at least some level of fairness. And yet the long crawl of a baseball season finishes with a mad sprint of just over a week which feels sudden. The good news is, despite baseball’s continuing effort to muddy the water by extending the playoffs and making them more and more confusing, the two best teams have reached the Fall Classic. For the first time since 1999, the teams with the best record in each league will play for the right to be called world champion.

After Perfect Ending, Mariano Rivera Exits As One Of Baseball's True Legends, One We Can All Tell Future Generations About Seeing Him Play
There will never be another Mariano Rivera. Just like there will never be another Ruth. Or Mickey Mantle. Or Joe DiMaggio. Or Lou Gehrig. Or Yogi Berra. There's not many players throughout history that can hold that status. Rivera does, now and forever. Most of us never got to see the greatest names of yesteryear play, but we all got to see Rivera. For Yankees fans, it was an almost daily thing. For 19 years, we got to witness greatness. He was a once in a lifetime player. We might not have seen Ruth, Mantle, DiMaggio, Gehrig or Berra play. We saw Rivera, though.

Here’s a look at what each fighter has to do to win tonight and what will actually happen.

2013 NBA Mock Draft: Cleveland Cavaliers will pick Kentucky's Nerlens Noel with No. 1 overall pick
This year’s draft is especially tricky for two other reasons. First, the best player in college this year, Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel, suffered a terrible knee injury this winter. His uncertain status for next year and beyond took away his status as the clear-cut No. 1 pick, but he should still get plenty of consideration. Secondly, the team with the first pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers, is reportedly looking to make a trade for more veteran assets which will help them be more attractive to next year’s free agent class, which ironically, is led by LeBron James. If they either make a trade or don’t take the best player on the board, it throws the whole thing into chaos. With all that said, here’s my take on who could go where Thursday night. Of course, for all the reasons I mentioned above, I could go 0-for-30.

Alice Cooper, Marilyn Manson shock their way to great rock show, experience at Mohegan Sun Arena
It was a tale of three shows featuring two artists all rolled into one night of shock rock at Mohegan Sun Arena Friday night. There was Marilyn Manson as one headliner and Alice Cooper as the other, the final act. So where did the third show come from? Well, that would be the strangest thing that happened on an evening that had me more afraid for any other show I've ever been to. Why so afraid? Because there are limitless expectations of shock and horror when Cooper and Manson play a show alone, let alone packaged as a nightmare pairing. So, I was expecting everything and anything to happen. For the most part, I got exactly what I was hoping for. The only difference was getting there didn't take the route I expected.


Ireland vs Spain at Yankee Stadium: An experience, and moment, to remember as I get to watch Ireland play in person for first time ever
The trip to Yankee Stadium Tuesday night was different than any other time I've ventured to the Bronx. Unlike the typical Yankees games, where the large majority of fans would be hoping for the same result, a victory for the home team, this was for a completely different experience. The Stadium played host on this night to an international soccer friendly featuring the best team in the world, Spain, against the squad that holds my allegiance, Ireland. This wasn't the first time I attended a professional soccer match, but it was by far the most anticipated, and would ultimately prove to contain one of the most exhilarating moments in all of my live sporting event fandom experiences. It would also prove to be one of the most disappointing, incredulous and downright infuriating moments as well. And did I mention both of these emotional mood swings took place in a matter seconds?

Pimp My Wright? Mets contact dating website for 'Cougars' to boost All-Star Game votes for David Wright
In what might be the worst possible idea of the century, some nimrod in the Mets marketing department contacted a dating website to boost David Wright’s chances of starting the MLB All-Star Game. Not just any dating website, mind you. They could have contacted the ever-popular Match.com or crunchy granola eHarmony, with their annoying commercials. Or maybe even Christian Mingle or J-Date to appeal to Wright’s religious fans. No, this bottom-feeding, scumbag opportunist contacted Cougar Life, known as "the cougar dating site for younger hot men to meet sexy older professional women."

Sgt. Slaughter discusses Hulk Hogan, Vince McMahon, his career highlights, WrestleMania, and his heel-turn as an Iraqi sympathizer
Every day is a good day in my day job, but there are some days which are especially interesting. Saturday night, while covering a minor league baseball game in Connecticut for the newspaper Brad and I work for, I got the chance to meet Sgt. Slaughter, who was at the New Britain Rock Cats game as part of the team’s ceremonies for Military Appreciation Night. We did an interview about his days as a real life marine and his love of the military (as well as his impressive knowledge of the New York Jets, and no, he doesn’t like the Revis trade), but I couldn’t resist slipping in a couple of old-school wrestling questions.

Shinedown delivers great rock show experience they promised at Mohegan Sun Arena, Bush does too
There was a time soon after Shinedown took the stage at Mohegan Sun Arena Friday night where lead singer Brent Smith told the packed house they were about to experience what a true rock show should be. The statement could have gone just two ways -- either the band would live up to those elevated expectations or they would fall flat on their self-made promise. After roughly 90 minutes, the answer became clear. Shinedown knows exactly how to put on a show, leaving fans with an experience they won't soon forget. It was fitting the band wore shirt and tie on stage, because they were all business in delivering a great rock show.

2013 NFL Draft first round live results & analysis, Eric Fisher goes No. 1, Jets & Giants picks
The Chiefs have play-makers on offense, but they need someone to block QB Alex Smith's blind-spot, and Central Michigan's Eric Fisher will take over that role. Fisher comes from a mid-sized school, so this is a chance. But Chiefs start the Andy Reid Era off right with a player who should be there for at least a decade.

College GameDay Rewind: Evil and Kool Aid have to split GameDay Picks Championship this season
The Alabama-Notre Dame BCS National Championship game was the perfect example of how not to pick games against the spread, or even straight-up for that matter. The Crimson Tide were far and away better than the Fighting Irish. It wasn't even close. But Notre Dame was pinned with the "team of destiny" label. If anyone could beat Alabama, it would be the Fighting Irish.

College Football Bowl Breakdown: BCS National Championship No. 1 Notre Dame Vs No. 2 Alabama, plus Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, Sugar Bowl and many more
Notre Dame and Alabama placing 1-2 in the final BCS standings Sunday night was completely expected, but a party-crashing Northern Illinois squad receiving an invite to one of the big-money games was not. But that's exactly what happened when the computers spit out the final batch of rankings and the MAC champions stood at No. 15. That meant the Huskies would receiver an automatic bid into a BCS game, as they needed to be No. 16 or better to qualify. It also meant Oklahoma was booted as an at-large bid. Here is a rundown of the biggest bowl games, including the BCS national championship, Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl and more.

Red Sox didn't make a blockbuster trade with Dodgers, they gave up
I’ve said it before. We root for laundry. It’s an old expression but it’s true and it perfectly describes sports in the 21st century. You root for players, then they leave. You root for the team and, unless you’re a Whalers fan, it stays with you forever. Even on the days you want it to go away. I’m writing this a day early in part because I have to travel Sunday night and partly because I just had to write my thoughts down on paper. This post is going to be a sort of therapy for me as well as the chance to come to grips with both the last two days and the last two years of life in Red Sox Nation, so forgive me if this particular entry is a bit scattered. It’s just going to be my thoughts as I form them and process everything. The Boston Red Sox didn’t make a trade Saturday, they gave up.

Avenged Sevenfold proves spot as one of best hard rock bands with great performance at Mohegan Sun
If there is one band that has taken the lead in the hard-rock movement, it just might be Avenged Sevenfold. The band’s show at Mohegan Sun Arena Friday night made it clear that, at the very least, they’re definitely one of the few in the conversation. Avenged Sevenfold played to a near-capacity crowd, putting forth a high-energy performance that was matched by a crowd’s enthusiasm, with mosh pits erupting seconds into the opening song and continuing until the final performance in the band’s 90-minute set. Overall, it was the rock performance that any fan should expect when going to a show, although this one easily was above the curve.

Weezer comes up short in delivering great rock show experience at Mohegan Sun Arena
Of all the bands I've seen in my time, and have reviewed here on GameDay, the most perplexing show of them all happened Thursday night at Mohegan Sun Arena. I ventured out to see Weezer, a band that became popular 18 years ago, with a lot of preconceived notions, from what the performance might be, to the size of the crowd, to the age group of the crowd itself.

A look back at the 2009 NFL draft, with GameDay's ‘winners and losers’ column analyzed
Never, however, as far as I know anyway, has a writer put his own analysis on the line and looked back on all the predictions they may have made following a draft. Until now. I went back to my "winners and losers" column three years ago, after the April 2009 draft, to see exactly how I did in breaking down the first day.

Giants defeat Jets: Battle for New York proves Jets aren't ready to take over city
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Make no mistake, this was a monumentally huge game for the New York Jets. As much as the Jets could have taken a huge step toward the postseason, and that is the ultimate goal, this game was all about breaking free from the other New York team once and for all.

Surreal night in Bronx ends with watching Tigers celebrate after beating punchless Yanks in ALDS

Two decades after running amok at Shea Stadium, I add another memorable experience, at Travelers
This wasn't my first foray onto the field at a professional sporting event, however. Way back when, when I was 9-years-old, I hopped the field wall (illegally I'll proudly admit) after the Jets played their final game ever at Shea Stadium before they moved to the Meadowlands a couple decades ago. Me and my dad jumped the fence and ran onto the stadium grass, joining the masses that were looking to create mayhem after the Jets lost big to the Steelers.

PGA's Travelers Championship an awesome event to experience for sports fans
There's not a whole lot left on my checklist of professional sports that I've witnessed in person as a spectator. I've knocked off the usual suspects, games played in minor and major league baseball, the NFL, NBA and NHL. I've also crossed off several that might be considered rare, as in soccer, boxing, wrestling and lacrosse. So, it's always a big thing for me when I can experience something new in sports.

Trip to Chicago and Wrigley Field reveals a stunner - Cubs fans are posers
Call me naive or say I'm behind the times, but I had a major revelation during my vacation to Chicago last week. What's the major eye-opener? Chicago Cubs fans are not only the most overrated in all of baseball, but they could be the worst fans in the game. I actually can't imagine a fan base that is worse, and I'm surrounded by a great number of Mets fans.


Breaking down the ultimate road trip to Pittsburgh for New York Jets football
Alright, my brother Glenn said my last blog post about the Jets playing in Pittsburgh was terrible, so hopefully I'll be able to bounce back with this entry breaking down the road trip to Pennsylvania. Now, I did say the post from Pittsburgh in the wee hours Monday morning was just the appetizer to this main course, so consider this the one that counts.


Thought I would give some quick thoughts from the hotel here in Pittsburgh following the Jets impressive victory over the Steelers Sunday night. I'll give a full report most likely Tuesday with all the happenings of the weekend here in the Steel City.


There's no better place to start than the beginning, so here we go. Walking to the stadium I was expecting the place to be lit up in green. But it was just the same big, grey building that everyone saw last year under construction. No big deal, but I was expecting something great on the outside. There were huge video screens that surrounded the stadium. After getting the customary pat-down at the gate, the space between the entrance and the actual stadium was huge.

Tool concert review from Mohegan Sun
There's a very short list of rock bands that I would drop everything to go see live. So when one of those bands was playing Mohegan Sun Tuesday night, I made sure to be there. The band was Tool, one of the greatest rock bands of all time and one that I've never had the privilege of seeing in person.


It's been a while since GameDay made its way to a rock concert, but with the Carnival of Madness tour coming to Mohegan Sun Wednesday night, there was no better time to change that fact. It didn't hurt that Shinedown, one of GameDay's favorites, was the headliner. With 10 Years, Sevendust and Puddle of Mudd also on the show, there was no reason not to make the trip up to Uncasville. And five hours after the opening song, the trip was well worth it as the show was completely awesome. If you take out the performance of Puddle of Mudd, the show was on another planet - it was that good.


The greatest blog in the world took in the greatest show in the world Thursday night at Mohegan Sun as GameDay got to experience the spectacle that is a KISS concert for the first time ever. And even with huge expectations, the show was everything expected and more. KISS, even the older version it is now, rocked the house and left ears ringing from the pyrotechnics, explosions, fireworks, fireballs and, not to forget, the great music.


If Monday night was the last concert that GameDay will venture out to this summer, then Alice in Chains made sure it would be a memorable end to a season full of great shows. Alice in Chains has a tremendous library of hit songs that easily filled its set with the jam-packed Mohegan Sun Arena crowd not only rocking along with them all, but singing in unison as well. As a side, every single song AIC played, I knew, which was a first for a main act that I've seen.


Walking out of Mohegan Sun Arena Tuesday night, GameDay learned two things about headlining act Stone Temple Pilots. One, more than a decade after they hit it big, singer Scott Weiland and the rest of the band are still legit rock stars. Two, the amount of hit songs, great songs at that, that STP has in its library are seemingly endless. With those two things in full effect, the show put forth by the Pilots was everything a fan could hope for and more.


Conan O'Brien thrills crowd at Mohegan Sun, with GameDay in front row
For those that follow GameDay on Twitter know that I made it out to Mohegan Sun last night for the Conan O'Brien live comedy show at the arena. Going in, my expectations were through the roof, and we all know what happens when that kind of pressure is put on an event. But in this case, the show actually exceeded my expectations. It was that good.


It was a night of firsts Saturday for GameDay. Not only did I attend my first professional boxing event, I also got to see former champion Lennox Lewis, promoter Don King, a guy have a heart attack in the crowd, the Mohegan Sun Arena and some very talented ring girls. One thing that wasn't new, however, was my luck in the casino. But that's the last thing I want to write about. Saturday night I attended HBO's Boxing After Dark event at Mohegan Sun with the main event being a unification championship bout between Devon Alexander "The Great" and Juan "Iron Twin" Urango. But we'll start from the beginning.

GameDay goes head-to-head with poker pro David Singer and wins, for one hand anyway
I recently started playing poker over at Full Tilt and the frustration that comes along with it is monumental. Don't get me wrong, I've had my share of success. I've won a handful of qualifying tournaments (which basically means you have to win there to advance to play in a big-money tourney). I even pulled out a championship victory in a 2,700-person tournament that I was able to pocket some real money in, obviously the highlight of my short poker-playing career. That title was won after only playing and learning the game for six days, something I am always quick to point out to anyone who dares listen to me.


It was quite the night Sunday at the Meadowlands as the Jets finally came through in a big moment to absolutely destroy the Cincinnati Bengals in the final (regular season) game in Giants Stadium history and advance to the playoff bracket. As most know, I was there for all the festivities and it was a great overall experience. I would still rank it below the Patriots game earlier this season, but it was completely different circumstances.


In 2007, three young pitchers made their debuts in the Bronx for the New York Yankees. Two of them were considered the future of the most storied organization in all of sports. The third was a notch below his teammates, but still had unbelievable upside. Together, the trio were not only pegged as future All-Stars, but the ones who would be the face of the next generation Yankees.

Hideki Irabu may have passed, but he'll always be remembered for one magical night
It was July 10 way back in 1997 that I made the trek to Yankee Stadium for what I thought would be one of the great moments in the history of the Bronx Bombers. A Japanese superstar by the name of Hideki Irabu was set to make his Yankees debut as a starting pitcher that night, and my excitement and enthusiasm was equaled by the over 50,000 people who packed the Stadium that night to witness history.


Snakebitten QB Chad Pennington went from savior to cast off for Jets, but his end setup their future
At one point in the tumultuous history of the New York Jets, Chad Pennington was the team's savior. Pennington, who took over as Jets quarterback during the 2002 season after two years sitting behind Vinny Testaverde, was the player that would finally bring the Jets a Vince Lombardi trophy that many fans had become to believe was simply a pipe dream.
