Respect For The Opponent

By Paul Casey Gotham Watch enough sports and eventually one will develop a distaste for some of the guys who wear the sweater of an opponent. Whether it’s the guy you hate see coming to the plate with the winning run on base or the player who fills up the net all too frequently when […]

The Giants, St. Jude, and Casey

I’m not gonna lie. I gave the New York Giants very little chance of defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. With that in mind I turned to St. Jude (my Catholicism only occasionally appears on the Clipboard). You see St. Jude is the Patron Saint of desperate cases. I said a prayer […]

Happy non-official Holiday!

As I wrestled through the aisles of my local Fortune 500 grocers, I was reminded how today is the most holiday-like of non-holidays. Usually Sunday-morning grocery shopping is a rather tranquil affair. Not today – people with overflowing grocery carts and a few women looking a little too stressed about the day’s preparations. I could […]

Is the soap opera finally behind us?

Every media outlet known to mankind is reporting the trade of Johan Santana to the Mets for Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Deolis Guerra, andKevin Mulvey. How does this deal affect the Mets? How does the deal affect the Twins? How much does this affect the Sox and Yanks? Other note: Michael Wilbon is recovering from […]

Now That’s A Statement Game!

I don’t care that it is the end of January. I don’t care that Maryland was .500 in the ACC. I don’t care that Maryland is unranked. Duke’s victory last night over the Terrapins, 93-84, was a statement game. Down nine at half, on the road, and the Terrapins clicking on all cylinders the Blue […]

It’s The End of the World as We Know It

That’s great. It starts with a loss of Jake Cleveland – on the make. It’s Progressive for God’s sake! Eye of a Djokovic Down goes Federer – so long Rafael – hello Tsonga Feeding off an Aussie feast Yum! Now! Hornets in a fire Representing some eight games Spurs look uninspired Pat Reily and a […]

I’d like to report a crime!

Hello. 9-1-1? Hi. Yes, I…uh…I’d like to report a crime. Name? Casey. Casey from Casey’s Clipboard. Address? Uh… Everyone knows it. About the crime…Huh? Imminent danger? Uh, not really any imminent danger, but there is a crime happening right before our very eyes, and we don’t even know it. Who? Well, it’s hard to say. […]

Super Bowl Firsts – Group Participation

Here we have it – twelve days (296 hours but who’s counting) before the champion of the NFL is crowned. The one good thing about the extra week is all the classic video footage of Super Bowls past. The old films provide an opportunity to reminisce. I am looking for the help of the Clipboard […]

I Don’t Believe What I Just Saw!

I can see it now, the new NFL Network commercial. It pans to a diner and instead of Joe Montana cooking, it’s Tiki Barber. The two guys sitting at the counter are looking at the menu when they look up and say: ” So Tiki, help us out. How does crow taste? ” Enough said.. […]
