12/23/2012 – The 5th Quarter in New York Sports


I was behind the mic solo for this edition of “The 5th Quarter in New York Sports” on Long Island’s AM1240-WGBB.  I started off discussing the Giants bad loss to the Ravens and what they need to happen to get to the playoffs.  I then went into the Jets and their loss to the Chargers and who the next Jets quarterback could be. I discussed the rest of the NFL and the playoff scenarios.  I then went into Knicks and Nets talk.  Also, I responded to caller’s comments on Eli Manning, the Giants bad defense, Michael Vick as Jets QB, and Andrew Luck’s success this season.

Sanchez Days in New York are Over

Here’s my article on Mark Sanchez’s days with the Jets being over.  Monday night in Tennessee was the last time he will take a snap with Gang Green. The Jets will look to trade him this offseason.  Also, Tim Tebow will be elsewhere next season as he would like to be traded.  Is Michael Vick going to be the next Jets QB?

Mets Future is Bright After Dickey Trade

The Mets traded R.A. Dickey, Josh Thole, and Mike Nickeas to the Toronto Blue Jays this week and they got some pivotal pieces for their future in return.  While losing the Cy Young winner is tough, this deal is going to benefit the Mets a lot down the road.  Management is putting the pieces together for a bright future.  Here’s my analysis on the trade and the young prospects the Mets got in return.

Leo F. Giblyn Elementary Reopens Following Sandy

After being closed for a month from damage due to Hurricane Sandy, Leo F. Giblyn Elementary School in Freeport finally opened its doors on Monday, December 10th.  It took a lot of hard work and resiliency, but the faculty is glad to be back home after being displaced to different schools throughout the town.  Just four days following their reopening, the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary happened in Newtown, CT.  The staff at Leo F. Giblyn was left heartbroken and are making sure that their students are safe.



Hofstra basketball prepares for comeback season

The 2012-2013 Hofstra basketball team prepares for a comeback season after their 10-22 finish last year.  After dropping their first 2 games of the 2012-2013 campaign, the Pride are working hard at practice to get in the winning column.


Students react to Hofstra burglary

Hofstra University is looking to regain its pride after four members of the basketball team were arrested on burglary charges. Sophomore Shaquille Stokes, and freshmen Jimmy Hall, Kentrell Washington, and Dallas Anglin were accused of stealing electronics from dormitories.

Since the story broke Thursday morning, members of the Hofstra community have expressed disappointment about their fellow students.

“It is surprising that people can do something like that, especially if it was a friend that they were stealing from,” sophomore Laurel Smith said.

“I knew the guys, they were always friendly,” junior Sidney Madden said. “It was a slap in the face, you have a really good deal here being a D1 basketball player.”

“Everyone makes mistakes, but this was just really stupid,” junior Shurita Lundi said.

The players are accused of stealing a Sony laptop, headphones, three MacBooks, two iPads, an iPod, and cash from three campus dorms. Several of the electronics were sold online.

In a statement released by Hofstra Athletics, the players have been “immediately suspended from the basketball team, classes, residence halls and facilities, pending the outcome of their case.”



This Rivalry Ain’t Kidd-ing

The Knicks got revenge against the Nets last night.  Jason Kidd made the clutch shot like he has done his entire career.  Here’s my article on the battle of the boroughs becoming a big time rivalry in the big apple.

12/02/2012 – The 5th Quarter in New York Sports

Check out my show from Sunday night on AM1240-WGBB.  On “The 5th Quarter in New York Sports” we discussed the Jets win over the Cardinals and who will start next week at quarterback.  Legendary sports broadcaster Ed Ingles joined us to give his take on the Jets and talk to us about his broadcasting career.  We debated on whether Mark Sancez or Greg McElroy should start next week, whether the Mets should sign or trade R.A. Dickey, and whether David Stern’s decision to fine the Spurs was right.  We gave our “5th Quarter Standouts” in the NFL.  We talked about the wild week in the NFL as well as previewing the Giants-Redskins matchup.  We also talked Knicks and Nets and their success so far this season.
