Balls of Fun
We Are the Great Pretenders
By Matt Caliri on Sep 17, 2004, 03:07
"Imagine purple-winged snow dogs dancing on an enormous lily pad that quietly floats atop the murmuring Lake of Fortitude."  Thus begins Matt's homage to fantasy football...trust us, you'll just have to read it for yourselves to understand (or not).




Four More Gyros!
By Matt Caliri on Sep 3, 2004, 01:08

People are protesting conventions in New York, the Athens Sports Bonanza is kaput, and I’m writing sports articles again. Someone somewhere must’ve failed to right something. But that’s neither here nor there. Location-wise, your best bet is just looking below. 





Care of: Madamme Sharapova
By Matt Caliri on Jul 16, 2004, 17:23

Dearest Maria, I saw you play three Saturdays ago on my television set. You beat Serena Williams 6-1, 6-4, and took Wimbledon. “Congratulations on your first Grand Slam,” Williams said to you, five years your senior, my little 17-year-old Siberian Hot Sauce Packet!





The Lakers Derailed By Untamed Pistons!
By Matt Caliri on Jun 18, 2004, 16:34
“There is something vaguely obscene about the sight of the Lakers in action, win or lose, and it ain't Kobe Bryant…they are lame and weak and pitiful.” “The Good Doctor” Hunter S. Thompson said this a little over a month ago in his typical gonzo-esque ESPN coverage of the Minnesota-Los Angeles series.




Fisher Priceless!
By Matt Caliri on May 21, 2004, 18:49

Every town needs a hero.  And to many in the public, when considering the heavy promotion and giddy anticipation for summer blockbusters, it would appear that Spiderman is the obvious choice.

Not in Los Angeles, though. For our hero, we look no further than our Laker Derek Fisher.





Smarty, and The Kentucky Fried Derby
By Matt Caliri on May 7, 2004, 18:53
Every once in a while, you just gotta hand it to a horse. Because every once in a while, the Kentucky Derby happens. And, finally, every once in a while, you just got say something silly-sounding like, “Smarty Jones.”




Play on, Playoff, Play on, Playoff "or" Basketball vs. Hockey: The Final Countdown
By Matt Caliri on Apr 30, 2004, 13:57
Rabbit season. Duck season. NBA Playoffs. NHL Playoffs. Whatever your preference, the fury of playoff season rages on during your work day.




Every Rose Has Its Raycroft
By Matt Caliri on Apr 16, 2004, 17:15
This is the tale of two young men, with striking similarities. Both quiet, and calculated. Both twenty-three. Both non-Americans (though one is French Canadian, so he‘s almost more of an “American B-side”).




And When A Ball Dies, Another Will Emerge
By Matt Caliri on Apr 9, 2004, 17:11
After witnessing the lackadaisical 4-11 first half free throw shooting by the Yellow Jackets, I came to the half-time conclusion that Georgia Tech didn’t even deserve the trophy.




Cowboys, Jackets, Devils, and Huskies, Oh My!
By Matt Caliri on Apr 2, 2004, 17:07
Sixty-four teams. Four weeks. One high-liter. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, traditionally referred to as “March Madness,” is officially underway, and officially making everyone hysterical.
