Hershey, Pennsylvania was the home of an unparalleled contest between the Philadelphia Warriors and the New York Knicks. On March 2, 1962, the Warriors and Knicks arrived ready to play. Less than 5,000 fans were in attendance to watch the un-televised game. Things began heating up during the shoot around. The 7’1” Wilt Chamberlain could not miss. Once the game began, it quickly became dictated by one fact: Wilt Chamberlain did not miss very often.
History of the NY Mets
The NY Mets have had some great victories along with devastating losses, but have withstood it all to still be a phenomenal baseball team. From their modest beginning in 1962, they have struggled through a few losing streaks, but then came back to win the world series in both 1969 and 1986.
Derek Jeter and Steroids
What if Derek Jeter got caught using Steroids?
What would happen to Major League Baseball if Derek Jeter got caught using Steroids? What would that do to sports in general? Would anyone, in any sport, ever be above suspicion again?

Washington Redskins Past and Present
PLEASE LIKE THIS PAGE
The Washington Redskins are one of the most profitable teams in the National Football League. They also have a less than spectacular record since being acquired by Daniel Snyder from a group headed Jack Kent Cooke, Jr. Fans of the Skins, as they are known in D.C., wonder how long it will take for the team to pull together a strong winning season and possibly post-season play. The current owner has thrown a massive amount of money towards purchasing players that he believed would place them on the road to dominance in the NFC and the NFL. Unfortunately single players
Best Theater of the Year
Once again the theater’s version of C&E’s (Christmas and Easter) audiences is clamoring for tickets to the shows that they may only attend once or twice per year if that. From sea to shining sea performers both professional and amateur are in most cases clad in period costumes. Early twentieth century costumes, worn by those who still believe in Santa Claus, are seen in Miracle on
One “Hal” of a Pitcher
A look back at Newhouser’s back-to-back MVP’s
He was known quite simply as “Prince Hal” by friend and foe alike. His career spanned across two decades (1940’s and 1950’s) of which he was arguably considered the most dominant starting pitcher in the game; a time where fellow pitching greats such as Bob Feller, Dutch Leonard, Robin Roberts, Whitey Ford, and Warren Spahn toed the rubber.

Defending Being a New York Yankees Fan
Ah, what it is to root for the New York Yankees. Who was it, the old comedian Joe E. Lewis? Wasn’t he the one who said rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for U.S. steel?
One of the greatest traditions we have in the United States is the tradition of tailgating before and after football games. For the most part there is a feeling of community and connectivity that occurs between fans that I haven’t found in too many places. It doesn’t matter if your tickets are in the front row or you bought discount tickets online for standing room seats, most people you come in contact with just want to have fun and see your football team win.
The Best Celtic
In their long and storied history it is difficult to pick just one player in the franchise history and call them the best. You can make arguments in many different directions, but to me I can only judge what I have seen with my own eyes, and that is that Larry Bird is definitely the best Boston Celtic ever.
