Sid Rosenberg: O.J. Simpson can still grip the nation

Believe it or not, the now 70-year-old O.J. Simpson has been in prison for nine years.   Tomorrow, he is up for parole.     “The Juice” has been serving a nine-to- 33-year sentence for his role in a robbery of his own memorabilia in 2008 and all signs are pointing...

This is a Home Run Derby you shouldn't miss: Sid Rosenberg

It has been a while, but it looks like the home run has made it’s long-awaited return to Major League Baseball and it has done so in a big way.    Over the past decade, we have seen a rise in pitcher dominance in baseball, and quite honestly it was getting a little boring. But...

LaVar Ball is all that's wrong with sports TV: Sid Rosenberg

How can I explain LaVar Ball?    For one, he is the ultimate heel — as we saw earlier this week on "WWE Monday Night Raw." More accurately, LaVar is the prime example of the ultra-competitive sports dad who by the third inning of your kid’s Little League Baseball...

Sid Rosenberg: Where is the love for Brook Lopez?

Brook Lopez deserves a huge pat on the back from every Nets fan on his way out of Brooklyn.    Arguably the best big man to ever don a Nets jersey, Lopez was shipped to his home state of California Tuesday evening in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers for D'Angelo Russell and...

Go out and enjoy some NYC sports this summer: Sid Rosenberg

It is time.  Remove thy tuckus from thy couch, bar stool, La-Z-Boy, whatever. With the NBA and Stanley Cup Finals coming to an end this past week and summer rolling into the Northeast, it’s time to get outside and enjoy the wonderful sporting events the Big Apple has to offer.  ...

Make the NBA great again: Sid Rosenberg

For the third year in a row, the NBA Finals features the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers — and to be quite honest it is getting boring as hell.  Don’t get me wrong, the Cavs and the Warriors are obviously the two best teams in the league, but things have become...

Mets, Yankees taking fans for crazy ride: Sid Rosenberg

After years of playing second fiddle to the Yankees, the Mets came into the 2017 season with the majority of New York City baseball fans favoring them over the “Evil Empire”.    The Amazin’s were the talk of the town and there were no real signs that the Yankees would...

The Knicks' blueprint has to be changed: Sid Rosenberg

The turmoil that New York basketball fans have been enduring for now close to two decades could have ended last week at the 2017 NBA draft lottery.    For the first time since drafting Kristaps Porzingis fourth overall in 2015, it looked as though the Knicks had a good chance at adding...

Sheriff Shaq has a nice ring to it: Sid Rosenberg

In a country that became filled with “political activists” who take to the streets to protest without any credibility, one man has come forth and decided it was time to put his money where his mouth is. NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal has announced that he will be running for...

Matt Harvey needs to walk the straight and narrow path: Sid Rosenberg

To put it lightly, the Mets' season has gotten off to less than an optimal start. The latest mishap in this early-season series of unfortunate events hasn’t even been on the field. The Mets suspended Matt Harvey three games for failing to show up to the ballpark last weekend. Harvey has...

Leave it to the Mets to ruin something nice: Sid Rosenberg

Well, it was only a matter of time. For the first time in who knows how many seasons, a Quinnipiac University poll showed that the Mets are more popular than the Yankees in New York City. Historically, any good news for the Mets either doesn’t last long or comes back to bite them in the ass...

Forget basketball, there is madness in the NFL draft: Sid Rosenberg

Tonight, college football players from across the country will gather in Philadelphia (and some at home around their television sets) for the 2017 NFL draft with the hopes of hearing their name being called by Roger Goodell.  Since the end of the college football season in January, prospects...

I'm done with James Dolan and so should every other Knicks fan: Sid Rosenberg

As the Knicks organization continues its 16-year downward spiral, there is only one man left to blame. James Dolan has ruined this organization and it’s time that someone does something about it. We can no longer sit here and blame the players or Phil Jackson or whoever else we may think is...

Sid Rosenberg: Tim Tebow is not going anywhere

Tim Tebow has now been a professional baseball player for seven months and somehow, someway, he has managed to defy all his critics.  Back in September, when the Mets decided to sign the former Heisman Trophy winner, there was not a sports fan in America that didn’t think the move was a...

Sid Rosenberg: Knicks facing an offseason filled with tough calls

The NBA season is winding down and for the Knicks, well, it’s been over for a while now.  Coming into this season, some touted the Knicks as a “superteam” with two former All-Stars Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah teaming up with Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Now with...

Mets, Yankees' top players are all homegrown

Baseball is back. Well, it’s almost back.This is the last Thursday before the Major League Baseball season starts and as always, I am excited. There will always be baseball storylines in New York, and recently the Yankees have gotten the wrath of the tabloids for not producing or showing promise....

Sid Rosenberg: Giants offseason has been far better than Jets so far

So far during the NFL offseason period, I think it is fair to say that the Giants have jump leaps and bounds ahead of the Jets in terms of addressing needs and suring up their strengths. It has to be embarrassing to be a Jets fan right now with how their team has taken what looks to be a step...

Sid Rosenberg: Happy St. Patrick's Day to these, my favorite Irish athletes

March 17 marks the day one of Ireland’s pre-eminent patron saints passed away, St. Patrick. St. Paddy is celebrated across the globe with parades, festivals and lots of the color green and booze. For me, when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around each year it signals the start of baseball season. Teams...

Sid Rosenberg: Colin Kaepernick will now stand because his money is being threatened

The saying “the chickens have come home to roost” now directly applies to recently unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Last week the former San Francisco 49ers second round pick opted out of his contract with the 49ers and is now looking for more work as a NFL quarterback in some capacity....
