They are merely Fair Waiters, not great ones

Six games in and the puns have been laid on thick already when it comes to C J Fair. The ridiculous dunk last night led to a bunch of “Man, that was just unFair” and other obvious blobs of text. I thought to myself “I’m still waiting for the Waiters puns to start flying.” (For [...]

Another All 00’s Team

No, I don’t mean a team made up entirely of Rick Jacksons.

Inspired by TNIAAM’s extensive review of the decade in Syracuse football (broken down by best games, worst games, QBs, RBs, WRs) I’m pleased to present my Cuse Country SU Men’s Basketball All-Decade Teams. It’s slightly different from football because of the way basketball seasons [...]

The Magical Suitcase; or, How I learned to stop worrying and love the RAC

In honor of tonight’s visit to the Rutgers Athletic Center, I think it’s time to relay one of the better epic SU gameday sagas in which I have played a role. The date was January 2005. The team was the 19-1, #4-ranked Syracuse Orangemen, featuring Warrick, Pace, Forth, McNamara, a quartet of promising but underperforming [...]

Bullz No Longer Raging (Pro Update 12-6)

First of all, if you haven’t seen it yet, check out our exclusive interview with Ryan Blackwell that ran last week.
It’s been three weeks since I’ve checked in on the pro ranks. (Things have been a bit unsteady at the ol’ homestead.) There is so much to talk about. Demetris Nichols scored his first NBA [...]

Gerry Back to Greece

Hot off the newswire — well, OK, a couple weeks old but just recently uncovered by our crack team of researchers — Gerry McNamara has decided to try his luck in Greece again. He has signed a contract to play for Panionios BC. Here is the news release on the team page — unfortunately it [...]

Vee Ars des Chaampioners (Pro Update 6-27)

Elvir Ovcina has some jewelry!

Telinuds Oostende has won the Belgian League Championship. When we last checked in, they’d taken the first game of a best-of-five series. The series went the full five games. Euphony Bree won the second game, in which Elvir had 12 points and 8 boards. Telindus came back to dominate game [...]

Home Jobbed (Pro Update 5-13)

When we last looked at the Polish League playoff picture, Otis Hill and his team Anwil Wloclawek had just tied their best-of-seven playoff series at 2 games apiece. Game 5 was last Sunday, May 6, on the road. Otis had 16 points and five boards but Anwil got handled easily, losing by 14. This set [...]

Lose And Go Home (Pro Update 5-3)

The Syracuse presence has been purged from the NBA playoffs, unless you count Marvin Aufrichtig who is calling games for TNT. Last night the Denver Nuggets were bounced by the Spurs. After winning game 1, Denver lost the next four in a row to San Antonio. The Spurs’ defense was relentless, frustrating the pants off [...]

Crunch Time (Pro Update 4-18)

No, this is not a post about Syracuse’s minor league hockey team. It’s going down to the wire in the NBA for Jason Hart and the Clippers. Last night they toppled the Suns who admittedly did not have much to play for, but still played their usual starting lineup and player rotation. Hart had 16 [...]

Mr. Forth

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Craig Forth. It seems that Craigers has been busy in his post-Syracuse days. From his MySpace profile, you can learn that he’s happily married, teaching at an elementary school in New Jersey, enjoys movies made in 1994-95, and is 7′0” and athletic.
But for a more in-depth exploration [...]
