As a lifelong Capital Region sports fan who has just so happened to be in radio for most of my professional life the chance to “join the Team” pun intended was the kind of offer I’ve been dreaming of. Growing up a Yankees, Knicks and Raiders fan(a punishment I share with my beautiful daughter Ella) I’ve felt the pain and success that comes with diehard fandom. Luckily for me my friends that love the Giants have adopted me so I have a reason to watch football after the Raiders have been eliminated EARLY every season for the last 10 plus years. I’m excited to talk sports and enjoy multiple happy hours with all the sports fans of the Cap Region…even the Red Sox fans.
Saratoga High School Star Wins WWE US Championship
If you looked at the man simply known as "Riddle" that won the WWE United States Championship last night and thought he looked familiar, you were right. Matt Riddle's journey through combat sports spans from Saratoga Springs High School to WWE US Champion now and the sky's the limit for this Bro.
Deshaun Watson “LIKES” The Jets
There hasn't been a ton for New York Jets fans to get excited about over the last few years(well last few coaches) but things could be looking up for Gang Green. The Jets landed one of if not the hottest coaching candidate in former San Fransisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh and now they might have a legit shot at Deshaun Watson.
The Jets Winning Is A Win – Win
It's easy to look at the Jets' stunning victory over the Rams and be disappointed that Gand Green likely cost themselves the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft but it looks like a win to me in more than one way. The belief is that Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is a "sure thing" and must draft with the top pick but that's far from guaranteed and the Jets needs sadly run far deeper than QB. Sliding to the second overall spot provides the Jets with something they need more than any one position, options. With the top pick, you almost HAVE to take Lawrence whether you want him or not, now you have the freedom to maneuver.
Jets Need To Bring Back Rex Ryan
I have a list of coaches I'd love to see take over for the New York Jets about a mile long because any name that isn't Adam Gase is a name I like. So why in the world am I saying that Rex Ryan needs to return? I'm saying it because he has a true passion for the franchise and if coupled with the right offensive coordinator I think he could really excel in the post Bill Belichick era of the AFC East.

We have baseball!!! The MLB and the MLBPA have kinda sorta come to an agreement. There will be a 60 game regular season with a normal playoff format.

Remember Giants’ Training Camp In Albany? [Gallery]
In a year where it seems any sports we do get will either be nostalgia or changed drastically to fit the CDC guidelines during this pandemic, I decided to dig up some nostalgia of my own.

Enjoy this stroll down memory lane and let me know in the comments below if you were there for any of these photos.
Bubba Wallace Wants Confederate Flag Banned From NASCAR [VIDEO]
In the midst of the national outcry to end racism NASCAR's Bubba Wallace has been thrust into the spotlight as "the only black NASCAR driver." The fact that a man of color has made it to the sports highest level is definitely noteworthy and the fact that Wallace is willing to use success to help spread the message of growth and change is admirable. Recently Wallace was asked what the next step NASCAR should take and he suggested "getting rid of Confederate Flags."
Should A New York Team Sign Jadeveon Clowney?
Jadeveon Clowney's talent and freak athletic ability are obvious and have been all the way back to his college days at South Carolina. The number one pick of the 2014 NFL draft for the Houston Texans is a Free Agent after spending last season with the Seattle Seahawks. Clowney is recovering from a core injury and there are questions about how badly he wants to win over getting paid. Should the Giants, Jets, or Bills sign the biggest defensive free agent out there or stay away?
2021 Madden Cover Athlete Chosen
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Baltimore Ravens' QB Lamar Jackson says he will be on the cover of Madden 2021. Lamar Jackson was hands down the most valuble player in the NFL last season and since his real life moves look like something out of a video game already this selection makes tons of sense.
