5/25/14-The 5th Quarter in New York Sports on AM1240-WGBB

5/25/14-The 5th Quarter in New York Sports

Tune into the podcast from my show Sunday on AM1240-WGBB in New York.  On The 5th Quarter in New York Sports, I opened up with my frustration on Ray Rice and his pitiful attempt at an apology Friday in a press conference full of self pity.  What did Rice do wrong and how long should he be suspended for his actions against his wife?

I then moved on to another debacle on and off the field in New York.  The Mets loss Sunday afternoon was demoralizing and they continue to find new ways to lose.  Citi Field has been nothing but quiet, and what has happened when fans cheer at the ballpark?   What is going wrong with the Mets?   What do they need to change to turn things around?  Is Terry Collins on his way out?

Also, the Rangers were in action in a pivotal Game 4 against the Canadiens.  I gave updates throughout the show and also discussed Stepan’s injury, Carcillo’s suspension, and analyzing the Rangers run thus far.  Can they make a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals?  How big would it be for New York sports? I also talked NBA playoffs.  Serge Ibaka made his return Sunday night for the Thunder, which will cause the Spurs plenty of problems.  The Pacers loss Saturday puts the series in the hands of the Heat, but Elwood from Indiana called in and disagreed with me.  I had to put him in his place.

I also break down the Yankees and their series win.  They are sticking around in the AL East, but do they need some pitching help with all their injuries?  Also, Yunel Escobar and the Red Sox went at it Sunday.  Did the Red Sox trigger the debate or is Escobar just a troublemaker?  At 34, Josh Beckett tossed his first no-hitter Sunday against the Phillies.  To close out the show, I gave out my prediction on who the Knicks next head coach will be.  Listen in to a jam-packed show here and download the show on iTunes!

Ray Rice with pathetic attempt at apology

Ray Rice should be embarrassed at what should have been a press conference to apologize.  Instead, he had his wife apologize for her actions Friday.  What did the Pro Bowl Ravens running back do wrong and what should his penalty be for abusing his wife?  Here’s my Allvoices.com story.

Ray Rice should be embarrassed, ashamed by apology attempt
