Sid Rosenberg, the Sultan of Sports Radio

By dsnyder, published on Jul 9, 2007

His voice reeks of Brooklyn. His mid-afternoon radio show has been moving seamlessly in and out of topics such as the Sopranos, the host’s greatness, and the Marlins, the home team, not being on par with his Mets. He tells his audience that Jason Stark, who like all of his guests is not only “great” but also “his great friend”, will be on during the next segment. Then he lets a belch flow into the microphone, and curses the Diet Coke that created the gaseous expulsion. All of this is what makes Sid Rosenberg the sultan of sports radio. He, one of its greatest talents, and his show... (more)

NBA Free Agency Free-for-All

By dsnyder, published on Jul 6, 2007

Teams must have been hung over after swimming in the most talented draft pool in recent memory on June 28th. Seattle scored Jeff Green and Kevin Durant, giving them two possible future franchise players.

Who is still looking? Vince Carter has resigned with New Jersey for four years. He is a 25ppg, 5rpg, and 5 apg kind of player that most teams would love to have as their number two threat. He decided to stay... (more)

The All-Star Game, a Mid-Summer Tear Jerker

On July 10th Major League Baseball will hold its 78th All-Star Game. I can’t wait until July 11th. It isn’t that I dislike the All-Star game, or any of the weekend’s events. In reality, I am among the growing number of sports fans that just aren’t intrigued by the whole event. The home run derby is the equivalent to watching grass grow. It’s what the three point contest would be without a timer, a guy practicing. What I can’t wait for is the end of the incessant whining from fans, sports columnists, and radio personalities. The first real wave of infant like behavior rolls out... (more)

Beards, Glorious Beards

By dsnyder, published on Jul 2, 2007

USA Today has begun to unload its Top 25 of the USA TODAY Era (1982-2007). Every weekday it gives us another member of its top 25 and how they rank amongst each other. I love these lists because they are totally subjective and get sports fans extremely riled up. They are the spawn of downtime on the sports editorial calendar, they often reek of must, and always leave out role players such as offensive lineman and concentrate on the skill positions. So I thought it would be appropriate to do a “top athlete” list for Big Dave on Sports. One of the most important elements that can define a... (more)
