This will probably put Eli Manning's panties in a bunch.
It was announced today that Derek Jeter will be appearing in an ad for Gillette's new battery powered razor that has 18 blades (just kidding), the Fusion Power razor.
Gillette's corporate headquarters are located in none other than South Boston Massachusetts, and their namesake is attached to the home of the three-time Super Bowl... » more
If you know someone between the ages of 6-18 who's looking for something to do now that school's out, the New York Junior Tennis League wants to give them free tennis lessons starting today.
You don't even need a racket--just show up at any of nearly 50 locations in all five boroughs, pretty much anytime during the day this week (or next week, or the next....)
And yup, current world... » more
Jason Kidd, as he often does, backpedaled on defense, anticipated his opponents next move, and swooped in to intercept a pass in his own half. The Mavericks point guard then pushed the ball up the sideline to lead his teams fast break.
Out of the corner of his left eye, he spotted a teammate streaking forward and, as always, delivered to him a pass with pinpoint accuracy. The... » more
The Mets came in one game under .500 at the 81-game, halfway point of their season. Despite yesterdays encouraging win, the team must still be considered unstable and enigmatic.

Hi, I'm Tim. You probably don't know who I am, but I'm a lifelong Knicks fan, and I'm happy you're here.
First of all, welcome to New York. Anyone other than Isiah Thomas would have been a godsend, but you bring a winning attitude and a wealth of basketball knowledge with you into this job.
It will not be an easy one. If the roster remains as it is, you will have to deal with Stephon... » more

Team Outlook: The Nets finished 34-48 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2001 -- the year before Jason Kidd arrived and turned the franchise around.
Point guard Devin Harris, one of the many players traded for Kidd in February, has become abuilding blocks for the Nets next season and beyond. At age 25, Harris averaged 15.4 points, 6.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 25... » more
So now there's a real possibility that the "Mike and the Mad Dog" show is kaput we thought we'd trot out this video of someone doing a spot-on impersonation of an actual Dog tirade. The screaming starts about five minutes in.

Even the most casual Yankee fan will know that the last name of the Yankees injured ace Chien-Ming Wang rhymes with "wrong."
Then why do some of his teammates like Jason Giambi and Mike Mussina pronounce it as it rhymes with "hang"? This is particularly strange with Mussina since he's widely considered one of the smartest players in the game, graduating from Stanford in 3 1/2 years and obsessively... » more
