As a lifelong Capital Region sports fan who has just so happened to be in radio for most of my professional life the chance to “join the Team” pun intended was the kind of offer I’ve been dreaming of. Growing up a Yankees, Knicks and Raiders fan(a punishment I share with my beautiful daughter Ella) I’ve felt the pain and success that comes with diehard fandom. Luckily for me my friends that love the Giants have adopted me so I have a reason to watch football after the Raiders have been eliminated EARLY every season for the last 10 plus years. I’m excited to talk sports and enjoy multiple happy hours with all the sports fans of the Cap Region…even the Red Sox fans.
Julius Randle Receives Most Improved Player In Cutest Way Possible [VIDEO]
New York Knicks big man Julius Randle has achieved at least one more major accomplishment this season. Randle made the NBA All-Star team, lead the Knicks to the playoffs, and now has won the NBA's Most Improved Player Award.

Now ESPN is going to "pull back the curtain" on Jeter's career in New York and now in Miami in "The Captain" scheduled to be released in 2022. As a Yankee and Derek Jeter fan I will 100% be watching the entire docuseries but if they want it to be great rather than good they need to tell the story that Jeter somehow kept quiet for over twenty years of his dating life and more.
