Local Philadelphia Eagle, NASCAR and boys basketball

I wanted to make a quick post to link some stories I wrote this week. Pocono Mountain West graduate Mike Bamiro goes into his second year with the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeff Gordon is in a perfect position going into NASCAR’s last week off and Jon DeJesus is the new boys basketball coach at East Stroudsburg [...]

Phillies need to be smart when it’s time to sell

Here’s my column that ran in Saturday’s paper: I don’t need to tell you the Phillies should be sellers as trade season approaches. That’s a foregone conclusion by now. Despite a four-game sweep of NL Central leader Milwaukee that got them to 10 games under .500, the Phillies aren’t a good team. Part of it [...]

Mounties beat PV in softball

The story on Stroudsburg’s 7-6 victory over Pleasant Valley in softball didn’t make it online so here it is in blog form. STROUDSBURG — Kat Liedberg never doubted her teammates. Neither did Kalista Gioglio. They both knew Stroudsburg had plenty of time to chip away at its deficit. Gioglio tied the game with a two-run dou­ble [...]

Bertola leads Spartans, Stroudsburg’s Battle heating up and PM West boys on a run

Here’s my basketball notebook that ran in Thursday’s paper: Notre Dame of East Stroudsburg girls basket­ball coach Frank Bertola ex­pected his team to go through some growing pains early this season.

Baseball Hall of Fame voting is a sham

Here’s my column that ran in Thursday’s Pocono Record on how broken the voting is for the Baseball Hall of Fame. Enjoy. Congratulations, Baseball Writers Association of America members. You screwed up the Hall of Fame vote. Again. I guess nothing should surprise me when it comes to who makes the Hall of Fame and [...]

I was wrong, very wrong

I have no problem admitting when I’m wrong and I was very wrong about Chip Kelly. I knew Kelly was a very good football coach. His success as an offensive coordinator at both New Hampshire and Oregon, and as the head coach at Oregon was plain as day. His offenses were explosive, dynamic and a [...]

Ruben Amaro Jr. is destroying the Phillies

Pat Gillick must be shaking his head and thinking: how can Ruben Amaro Jr. be this dumb? What was Jeff Daniels’ line to Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber after Carrey sold their dog-mobile for a scooter? “Just when I think you couldn’t possibly be any dumber you go and do something like this … [...]

Amaro does it again

This is the column I wrote for Thursday’s Pocono Record. Enjoy … Ruben Amaro Jr. can’t get out of his own way. Just when you think the Phillies are ready to turn the corner into the 21st century — they hired Scott Freedman last week to add advanced metrics into player evaluations — they go [...]

King, a standout forward at East Stroudsburg North High School and ESU, signed a one-year contract with UCD-Marian of Ireland’s SuperLeague. The opportunity to play professional basketball was something [...]

McNabb goes out as best Eagles QB

Pasted below is the column I wrote in Tuesday’s Pocono Record on Donovan McNabb, who retired as a Philadelphia Eagle on Monday and will have his No. 5 retired on Sept. 19. Enjoy. Donovan McNabb will never be the most popular athlete in Philadelphia, but there’s no question that he is the best quarterback in [...]
