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

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

Great Teams Create Their Own Luck: Ravens Avenge Chargers, 16-13

Heading into week 12, the Ravens knew they had a tough task on their hands matching up against a team (San Diego Chargers) they have previously lost to last season (34-14) and whose backs’ were against the wall in 2012, losing their last 5 out of 6 games. Slug fest was written all over this one before it began, and I should have known! Both teams know one another pretty well but more importantly, the Chargers, a pass first team, have major pass protection problems with Jared Gaither recently placed on I.R.,… Read more Great Teams Create Their Own Luck: Ravens Avenge Chargers, 16-13

Ravens Face Familiar Foe in Week 12

In week 12, the 8-2 Baltimore Ravens travel to Qualcomm Stadium to take on the 4-6 San Diego Chargers.  A lot like last season, the Chargers will have to mount a serious winning streak together if they want to attempt competing for what is shaping up to like a potential wild card spot in the AFC. Throw it out the door like Jazzy Jeff: Ed Reed was initially suspended for this week’s contest for an illegal hit on Steelers’ wide out Emmanuel Sanders in week 11, but he appealed the suspension and won. Go and get… Read more Ravens Face Familiar Foe in Week 12

Jacoby Jones Marches to His Own Drum in Victory Over Steelers

The bookies had it right once again as the Baltimore Ravens beat the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday night by exactly 3 points (13-10). Considering the fact that Steelers’ back up quarterback  Byron Leftwich hasn’t started a game in 6 years and Joe Flacco’s quarterback rating in the last 4 games against the Steelers @ Heinz Field is a terrific 91%, many thought this game was going to be a bit more lopsided than it actually was, yes, including me. Don’t be foolish guy: Troy Polamalu remained on the inactive list with a calf injury,… Read more Jacoby Jones Marches to His Own Drum in Victory Over Steelers

Ravens vs. Steelers: Week 11 Matchup Preview

What was shaping up to be an amazing divisional rivalry game (1 of 2) between the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday night on NBC (prime time), is now looking like a game that could have been thrown on NFL Network (yawn) this season instead. As soon as Big Ben got taken out of the game in week 10 after being crushed by Tamba Hali and Justin Houston in a Heinz Field Sangwhich, the prime time game on Sunday night should have been changed immediately for week 11. Oh well, it could be worse,… Read more Ravens vs. Steelers: Week 11 Matchup Preview
