The Friday Five

1. Do you watch sports? If so, which ones?

baseball, football, basketball, tennis and golf. hockey & soccer are best seen in person. pro wrestling on tv is theatre.

2. What/who are your favorite sports teams and/or favorite athletes?

the new york yankees(!), in basketball i am really feelin’ the sacrament kings

individual athletes are generally assholes in the new sports world but i will always tip my hat to pete sampras for getting the job done and putting his name in the record books by being the best he could be instead of what the media wanted.

3. Are there any sports you hate?

not really, once you can get into golf everything else is cake

4. Have you ever been to a sports event?

everything except a *real* NFL game (been to a couple of exhibition games)

baseball- i’ve been to a ton of yankee games including a world series game and the second *ever* mets vs yankees game (yanks win that one 2-1)

basketball- many, many trips to the garden to see the knicks back when they were good. once scored playoff tickets right behind the backboard as the knicks *wooped* the cleveland cavaliers.

hockey– just two ny rangers games but they were both great seats.

first time was just above the line of the plastic glass on a real hot march day meaning i had on a light t-shirt for a hockey game… not smart.

the second game had me two rows behind the ranger’s bench!

pro wrestling– on tv its theatre but live it becomes so much more!

back in the day, i would be up in the garden almost every month with my lil brother and sister. been to pay=per-views, live tv tapings, and the holiest of grails– WrestleMania!

5. Do/did you play any sports (in school or other)? How long did you play?

nope… straight high school geek
