Backstage with Jonathan Davis

In 2007, in the midst of  92.3 K-Rock’s foolish identity crisis,  a super cool dude (Peter Hoffman) hired me as an intern for K-Rock’s promotional department. On some days, I’d grab coffee for peeps. On other days, I’d be assigned to interview pedestrians on the streets of New York for air worthy sound bytes. Most of the time, I would just grab coffee for people, however. Just kidding. After I dropped the title of intern to sidewalk ambassador, I overheard the program director talking to Pete, “We can get Jonathan Davis from KoRn… Read more Backstage with Jonathan Davis

A Better Health Coverage

You’ve seen it happen before, especially after the new year when everybody reveals their resolutions: people proudly proclaim they’re going to get back in shape, but all they’ll end up getting are Facebook “likes” instead. Are those the type of underwhelming results you’re willing to settle for, too? Don’t leave your friends waiting for that new selfie pic you promised them – that’s not cool. It’s no secret that quality exercise helps us look good naked, reduces stress – the number one killer in America – and improves the overall… Read more A Better Health Coverage

Alan Squatrito: Live From Super Bowl Media Day

By Alan Squatrito – Big Blue United 1.31.14 There he is; holding his arms behind his back like Prince Charles, Peyton Manning walks through an anxious crowd, ready to field questions on anything and everything on his road to Super Bowl XLVIII. What was seemingly a wild goose chase for eight months long, my quest to gain access into Media Day for Super Bowl XLVIII was finally paying off. I had a tough time believing the confirmation email I had received from the NFL event coordinators that Monday night, but… Read more Alan Squatrito: Live From Super Bowl Media Day

Big Blue United: Week 6 Turning Points – Giants @ Bears

Brandon Myers (83) Photo Credit: Mike DiNovo – USA TODAY Sports By Alan Squatrito – Big Blue United 10.14.13 For all you die hard Giants fans on here, I’ll refrain from opening this post up with an 0 and 6 knock-knock joke.  I encourage you to endure the pain of an 0-16 record before complaining about the dreadful 2013 season you are having thus far. Before the Giants can rediscover their winning ways this season, they have to embrace resilience. As easy as it might be to beat the Giants… Read more Big Blue United: Week 6 Turning Points – Giants @ Bears

Big Blue United: Week 5 Turning Points – Giants vs. Eagles

By Alan Squatrito – Big Blue United 10.7.13 I attended a Latin Mass this Sunday prior to the 1’o clock kickoff, but failed to understand what the pastor was preaching about. Later that afternoon, I watched Eli Manning attempt to run an offense and a similar feeling ensued: “What the heck is going on out there?!”-Vince Lombardi Three intentional grounding calls, three interceptions, and twelve penalties for 136 yards will most likely guarantee  any football team a loss on game day and the Giants could not be the exception  versus… Read more Big Blue United: Week 5 Turning Points – Giants vs. Eagles

Week 3 Turning Points: Giants @ Panthers

In a battle between two 0-2 teams scratching for their first win, you could assume the will or efforts put forth by every individual to be exactly the same, yet that would be foolish.  The New York Giants didn’t put up much of a fight against the Carolina Panthers in week three because they were too busy beating up themselves. The Giants put a zero burger up on the board against a Panthers’ secondary that was riddled with injuries, without the likes of Quintin Mikell, D.J. Moore, Josh Thomas, and… Read more Week 3 Turning Points: Giants @ Panthers

Top Five Fantasy Draft Board Misconceptions

1) Larry Fitzgerald – Larry Fitzgerald’s current ADP is 27; Stevan Ridley’s current ADP is 22, but how? If Bill Belichick uses a running back carousel throughout the course of the season, drafting Ridley ahead of Fitz could harm your fantasy squad.  Fitz is arguably the best wide receiver in the game and unlike last season, the Cardinals have a capable quarterback in Carson Palmer this year. The hiring of Bruce Arians also raises Larry’s stock. On average, Bruce Arian’s NFL offenses have generated 23.5 points a game, that’s eight… Read more Top Five Fantasy Draft Board Misconceptions
