  1. I cannot imagine a kid growing up, let’s say in NY for argument’s sake, who is not a fan of either the Giants, Jets, or Bills, or Yankees or Mets, or Rangers or Islanders or Knicks or Nets, or even just one of these teams, and/or his own high school/college teams, who deliberately decides to go into sports-writing as a career. A sense of objectivity, of course, will happen with maturity and/or a developed and understandable cynicism from being so close to so much hypocrisy. If Carp is truly a totally disinterested professional observer, he is certainly in a miniscule minority. IMHO. Sorry to post this seemingly unpopular opinion, but there it is.

  2. Very interesting development concerning the KHL being broadcast on ESPN3. That used to be a problem because Cablevision Internet subscribers could not get access. That has changed as per the news on the MAAC’s Facebook Page: “Good news for lots of MAAC fans – Walt Disney/ESPN and Cablevision have agreed a deal that includes ESPN3 authentication!”

  3. Youre wrong, coos. By definition, a fan cannot be objective.

    I liked Cano doing that, Carp. I like displays of class, and thats what the Yankees are. Just because i hate the teams doesnt mean i want Jeter or Cano to hate them.

    And CCCP, for the final time, I said the Yankees had quit on the day of Sept. 4. Later on the evening of Sept 4, Joe Girardi called his 1st closed door team meeting of the season. Obviously, he recognized the same general disinterest that i saw. And from that point forward, the Yankees turned things around.

  4. Always interested in hearing the consummate non-objective blogger discuss objectivity. Not.

  5. I am that, coos. :)

    But i was merely trying to educate you. It is impossible for a fan to be objective.

  6. As an example, I am a fan of the Mets. I am so “objective” that when they play lethargically, I literally root for any spirited opposition, thinking that the more terribly NY plays, inexorable pressure is put on management to make changes and find a winning path. Only goofs (and there are admittedly many) dismiss objectivity.
