NHL playoffs worth lengthy postseason

April 24, 2018 Michael Battista 0

I love the smell of ice in the morning. The National Hockey League playoffs started a few weeks ago, and I’ve been enjoying myself immensely so far despite the fact that the New York Rangers failed to make the postseason for the first time since 2010. […]

Philadelphia 76ers advance their process

April 16, 2018 Miguel Gonzalez 0

After years of tanking, frustration and heartbreak, the Philadelphia 76ers are returning to the NBA playoffs. Unlike the 2012 team that fought hard to secure the eighth seed, the Sixers are rolling through the Eastern Conference with a 16-game winning-streak. […]

Figure skating’s most exciting move — triple axel jump

February 19, 2018 Sumayah Medlin 0

Ever since I saw the movie, “I, Tonya”, I’ve been obsessed figure skating — particularly the triple axel jump. The movie, which came out just before this year’s Winter Olympics, chronicles the victories and mishaps of Tonya Harding, the first American woman to land the triple axel jump in competition and the second in the world, in 1991.

What distinguishes the axel jump from all other figure skating jumps is that it is the only forward jump, meaning that the skater is moving forward rather than backwards in the air. It takes a while to distinguish between the axel and many similar jumps because the jump happens quickly. In most backward jumps, the athlete is skating forward and then turns backward abruptly. […]

Neither Super Bowl team worth celebrating

February 6, 2018 Michael Battista 1

Well Philadelphia, you did it. Backup quarterback Nick Foles and the underdogs finally have a ring to call their own. It doesn’t matter that Eagles fans have pretty much destroyed the city and made their cars thoroughly “lit.” They can finally join everyone else in the National Football Conference East as Super Bowl champions. I’m glad some people are happy.

The past two weeks have been awful as a New York Giants fan. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. There was no right answer when I was asked who I wanted to win Super Bowl LII. Yet here at the College, I’ve seen more green than ever, and I’m fairly sure some of the fans who supported the city of brotherly love are defectors of the Big Apple.

Can the Yankees really go all the way?

October 16, 2017 Maximillian C. Burgos 0

This past week the New York Yankees came back from three games down to beat the Cleveland Indians and win the American League division series. But can they go all the way?

The Bronx Bombers showed off in game five against the Indians with two home runs by shortstop Didi Gregorius to win the game. The Yankees lost the first two games, making even the most loyal Yankees fans sweat a little. Through sheer determination and willpower, the Yankees won three straight games. […]

Judge ready to rise as baseball’s next icon

October 3, 2017 Michael Battista 0

This season the MLB’s biggest story has not been political protests, nor has it been tragedies off the field or overblown news that the sport is dying. No, the biggest story this year has been a 25-year-old from Linden, California, whose presence in the Bronx has caused everyone to rise. […]

Carton scandal ushers in end of an era

September 19, 2017 Michael Battista 0

The month of September has been unforgiving to WFAN Radio host Craig Carton. After celebrating the 10th anniversary of his immensely popular morning sports talk show “Boomer and Carton,” with co-host and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, he was arrested for an alleged involvement in a million dollar ponzi-scheme. On Wednesday, Sept. 13, Carton resigned from the station.  […]

USMNT has deep roots in Garden State

Every four years, teams from around the world compete to take part in the FIFA World Cup for the chance to be called ‘World Champions.’ Copious amounts of fame and money are up for grabs.

The U.S. Men’s National soccer team has had a few missteps during qualification which continued against the Costa Rican National team in Harrison, New Jersey’s Red Bull Arena with a 2-0 loss on Friday, Sept. 1. […]

US soccer needs better developmental leagues

September 5, 2017 Michael Battista 0

It’s no secret that soccer is the most popular sport around the world and it finally seems Uncle Sam is joining in. In recent years, television viewership for foreign leagues has skyrocketed in the U.S., with two top Liga MX matches scoring 1.7 and 1.55 million viewers on Univision, according to World Soccer Talk.
