Robert De Niro’s Plan to Bring Third Baseball Team to New York Gets Raves at Press Conference

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Teamwork! That’s what Robert De Niro wants to see if he’s successful in bringing a third Major League franchise to New York.

NEW YORK  (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) As a boy, Robert De Niro didn’t know Mickey Mantle from Mickey Mouse. Though he had virtually no interest in the sport, he played a baseball player in Bang the Drum Slowly, played a deranged baseball fan in The Fan, and even whacked a guy with bat while playing Al Capone in The Untouchables. So it’s safe to say, he’s picked up a little bit about the game – a little bit.

But now De Niro is leading a group which plans on clearing space in the TriBeCa neighborhood and building a 45,000 seat stadium, to add the New York metropolitan area’s third Major League franchise. (more…)

Mets Commemorate 50th Season by Attempting to Match 1962’s 40-120 Record

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

Baby Steps. This inaugural season yearbook is the mantra of sorts for the Mets of 2011.

FLUSHING, QUEENS, NY (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) The New York Mets, a powerhouse in the National League just five seasons ago, have been reduced once again to a baseball punch line. With its ownership being victims of Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme, overpriced contracts, a bevy of injuries, and an aging nucleus, the Mets at 5-11 on the young season and six games behind the Philadelphia Phillies in last place, have decided to turn a negative into a positive – so to speak. The club will now commemorate their inaugural 1962 season and attempt to duplicate that team’s record.

“We finally just decided to say ‘what the fuck?’” said Mets GM Sandy Alderson. “We were kind of hoping to surprise people early and get out of the gate on a good note. Well, that didn’t exactly happen, so our promotions department suggested we have fun with the season and dial things back to 1962.”

Several fans have gotten on board with the idea. (more…)

Cell-ebration in New York. Mets fans take down this dude.

NEW YORK (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Arnold Harris, who claims to have six years ago, started the trend of waving on camera to family and friends while on his cell phone has finally gotten what’s been coming to him – a vicious and full beat down from three drunken Mets fans. The Mets defeated Harris’ Padres 2-1 in eleven innings.

Harris, a lifelong San Diego Padres fan, has been following his team around the country since Opening Day on April 5th. Tuesday night he was at Citi Field in New York and began his usual routine of sitting behind home plate, enjoying nachos, and waving to his girlfriend Darlene Yakabovich while the two were having a rather animated cell phone conversation.
