Happy (belated) Thanksgiving From The Whole 1 minute Team

Hey guys, sorry for not blogging over the past few days. I hope you all had really great Thanksgivings and I hope you (like me) ate so much that you won’t get up off the couch until Christmas. We’ve been a blog for only about 6 months and we’ve already come so far because of you guys. The empire is expanding and it’s because of you people. The guys who check into the blog every day to see what idiotic things we did today. One day we’re doing our Rangers and Isles the next day I hold an emergency State … Continue reading Happy (belated) Thanksgiving From The Whole 1 minute Team

The Long Overdue and Highly Anticipated Yankees Blog (By a Yankees Fan)

Hey, guys. Doesn’t really matter who I am, but I’m a Yankee fan and that’s all that matters here. For too long, this wonderful website has very clearly lacked the respect and knowledge of Bronx baseball and I’m here to fill that void. Let’s get into it: Get it, Cash! There are big questions in the starting rotation and legitimate health is one of them. CC, Masahiro, Pineda, and Nova could not stay healthy last year. Starting pitchers going down has always been a Yankees mainstay and it is honestly something I’ve come to expect. But, as is, the rotation … Continue reading The Long Overdue and Highly Anticipated Yankees Blog (By a Yankees Fan)

Episode 8 of 1 Minute Sports Blogs: The One Where Odawg Fell Asleep

So you know how we were gunna start at 6. Yea so I kinda fell asleep and we started like 30 minutes late. Whoops. It’s all good though because we rebounded and had a pretty solid episode. We talked mostly College football and College Bball so if you’re into that kinda stuff than this episode is for you. Every single New York teams sucks except for Grovers Isles so he got bragging rights for this episode. Give us a watch, we’ll be back on air next week at 6 (assuming I don’t sleep through it again).

OGB podcast Episode 8: Winter is Coming

We’re all sick this episode, so the nasally voices and thoughts that just disappear are not because we’re just stupid (although we probably are). We talk Mets free agency because for the first time in forever we’re actually somewhat active in the offseason. We talk about the only 2 good teams in New York with the Isles and Rangers. We touch on the shitty shitty Knicks. I get to rejoice as my Jets actually won. Grover and Baca talk about the Giants winning out while  I make my pick of the Eagles making the Super Bowl. Then we do some … Continue reading OGB podcast Episode 8: Winter is Coming

Yankees Trade Cervelli to Pirates

PHOENIX — The Yankees traded Francisco Cervelli to the Pirates Wednesday night for lefty reliever Justin Wilson. This means the Yankees have faith John Ryan Murphy is ready to be Brian McCann’s backup. Wilson, 27, was exceptional in 2013, going 6-1 with a 2.08 ERA while holding lefties to a .501 OPS. In 2014, Wilson was 3-4 with a 4.20 ERA and held lefties to a good, but not elite .681 OPS. The Yankees believe their top pick from last June, Jacob Lindgren, is close to being ready to help as a lefty in the pen. But Wilson’s presence could … Continue reading Yankees Trade Cervelli to Pirates

Francesa vs. Kay: The Greatest Rivalry in sports

Michael Kay went on this huuuuuge rant today about Francesa and I couldn’t be more pumped. I HATE Kay and I LOVE Francesa, and this has the possibility to be one hell of a fight. New York has slowly been seeing dwindling rivalries in every sport. Yankees/Red Sox isn’t what it used to be, the Jets are nowhere near good enough to have a rival.The last time Mets/Phillies or Mets/Braves was relevant was 2008. Rangers/Islanders has the potential to become the best rivalry this town has seen in a while, but that will really only be limited to the hockey … Continue reading Francesa vs. Kay: The Greatest Rivalry in sports

Daaaaaaaamn. A-Rod’s Cousin got some serious $$$ for keeping his yapper shut

Hell hath no fury like a cousin scorned. Alex Rodriguez’s infamous “Cousin Yuri Sucart” threatened to expose the Yankee superstar’s doping secrets unless the scandal-ridden slugger coughed up “enormous sums of money,” according to court papers filed last week in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Rodriguez caved, entering into a confidential settlement with Sucart on June 5, 2013, agreeing to pay Sucart one $700,000 payment for his silence, in addition to three more payments made to Sucart that totalled $200,000. In a Dec. 18, 2012 letter, Sucart’s former attorney, Jeffrey Sonn, had demanded $5 million and … Continue reading Daaaaaaaamn. A-Rod’s Cousin got some serious $$$ for keeping his yapper shut

Derek Jeter’s trying to get in on the blog game. Back off man

NEW YORK — Derek Jeter was one of the world’s most covered athletes in media during his 20-season career with the New York Yankees. Now, he’s joining media with a new website devoted to delivering athletes’ “unfiltered” views to the fans. The Players Tribune is being billed as a digital company that will offer unique access to top athletes in every sport — from videos to photos to podcasts and more — without having to deal with reporters to do it. In a statement on the site that posted Wednesday, Jeter said he wants it to “transform how athletes and newsmakers share information, and bring … Continue reading Derek Jeter’s trying to get in on the blog game.

Farewell Jeets. You always put on one hell of a show.

I’m not going to lie, last night was pretty cool. Derek Jeter in his last home game as a Yankee walking it off in the bottom of the 9th to win is something that should give anybody chills. Forget the gifts, forget the commercials, forget the endless debate over the greatness of Derek Jeter. Last night was Derek Jeter’s night. Sure the game didn’t mean anything, but it really felt like it did. I’m happy that he got to go out the way that he did, because there is no other baseball player that not only could it happen to, … Continue reading Farewell Jeets. You always put on one hell of a show.

There aren’t even words to describe how much I hate this new Jeter commercial

This is every single reason why I don’t really like jeets all rolled into one. How people are saying that this is the best commercial of all time is INSANE. If anything, I think that this commercial has done more to hurt his sterling silver reputation than anything in his entire career. I sat back and said ok when he decided to do this whole farewell tour thing because whatever, he wants one more chance in the limelight. Good for him. I thought the first Jordan commercial was super cheesy and self righteous, but I sat back and watched and … Continue reading There aren’t even words to describe how much I hate this new Jeter commercial

This A-rod F13K You parody of RE2PECT video is hilarious

Gotta love it. I’m going through all the stupid Jeter shit now that I wrote that blog before about the Yankees wearing patches for a guy who is still on their team (which I still don’t get) a couple hours ago and I found this on the net. It came out about a month ago so if you saw it already well screw you watch it again, but if not, happy viewing. I got a good larf out of it. BTW- I’m 100% an A-Rod guy. Haters gonna hate. Juicers gunna Juice. We can start talking A-rod once this whole … Continue reading This A-rod F13K You parody of RE2PECT video is hilarious

Who dove better. The fat indian cricketer or Ezequiel Carrera- centerfielder for the tigers

We were blessed yesterday to have 2 fucking AWESOME catches. And once again it pits east vs. west. America vs. india. White vs brown. Hamburgers and hot dogs      vs……..

Tulo Watch 2014: See you in the offseason/ CarGo watch 2014

(BY SI WIRE)- Though the New York Mets had inquired about trading for Rockies players Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez prior to the non-waiver trading deadline, Jon Heyman of CBSSports reports if a deal happens, it likely won’t occur until after the season.According to Heyman, there likely isn’t enough time for the trade to take place before Thursday at  4 p.m. ET. Heyman reports that talks between the two clubs were never serious, but the Rockies believe the Mets are a good match for a trade, because the team has an “impressive list” of pitching prospects.The report also says that the Mets’ target will likely just be Gonzalez because Tulowitzki “wants to be a Yankee,” according … Continue reading Tulo Watch 2014: See you in the offseason/ CarGo watch 2014

Oh Derek you prankster you

Oh Derek. You’re such a prankster. Look at that poker face. What a classy guy. Looking like a little leaguer, joshing around with his teamates. So youthful, so spry. An ambassador for the sport. Even if he looks like hanibal lector here, so classy. Jeter, so hot right now, Jeter. BTW- Those are the fuck eyes if I’ve ever seen fuck eyes. You think Jeets isn’t a master of those eyes? He’s been using that look every night for the last 20 years. That’s his go to move. It’s called the “I’m Derek Jeter, who wants to lick me”. Continue reading Oh Derek you prankster you
