NHL playoffs worth lengthy postseason

I love the smell of ice in the morning. The National Hockey League playoffs started a few weeks ago, and I’ve been enjoying myself immensely so far despite the fact that the New York Rangers failed to make the postseason for the first time since 2010.

Philadelphia 76ers advance their process

After years of tanking, frustration and heartbreak, the Philadelphia 76ers are returning to the NBA playoffs. Unlike the 2012 team that fought hard to secure the eighth seed, the Sixers are rolling through the Eastern Conference with a 16-game winning-streak.

Loyola-Chicago brings harmony to March Madness

So, who exactly are the Loyola University Chicago Ramblers?

Figure skating’s most exciting move — triple axel jump

Ever since I saw the movie, “I, Tonya”, I’ve been obsessed figure skating — particularly the triple axel jump. The movie, which came out just before this year’s Winter Olympics, chronicles the victories and mishaps of Tonya Harding, the first American woman to land the triple axel jump in competition and the second in the world, in 1991. What distinguishes the axel jump from all other figure skating jumps is that it is the only forward jump, meaning that the skater is moving forward rather than backwards in the air. It takes a while to distinguish between the axel and many similar jumps because the jump happens quickly. In most backward jumps, the athlete is skating forward and then turns backward abruptly.

Neither Super Bowl team worth celebrating

Well Philadelphia, you did it. Backup quarterback Nick Foles and the underdogs finally have a ring to call their own. It doesn’t matter that Eagles fans have pretty much destroyed the city and made their cars thoroughly “lit.” They can finally join everyone else in the National Football Conference East as Super Bowl champions. I’m glad some people are happy. The past two weeks have been awful as a New York Giants fan. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. There was no right answer when I was asked who I wanted to win Super Bowl LII. Yet here at the College, I’ve seen more green than ever, and I’m fairly sure some of the fans who supported the city of brotherly love are defectors of the Big Apple.

Despite US absence, World Cup unites soccer fans

The U.S. men’s national soccer team’s elimination from World Cup qualification was monumentally embarrassing. Not only did the U.S. fail to qualify in a easy group, but it left its own fate against Trinidad and Tobago teams that had nothing at stake for them.

World Cup qualification failure signifies change for US soccer

The U.S. men’s national soccer team’s loss against Trinidad and Tobago on Oct. 10, was not a surprise. It was an inevitable failure and an embarrassment to all previous American teams who competed on soccer’s grandest stage.

College receives 13th Division III CAANJ Cup

The College was awarded the Collegiate Athletic Administrators of New Jersey Division III Cup for the 2016-2017 academic year on Friday, Oct. 13.

Can the Yankees really go all the way?

This past week the New York Yankees came back from three games down to beat the Cleveland Indians and win the American League division series. But can they go all the way? The Bronx Bombers showed off in game five against the Indians with two home runs by shortstop Didi Gregorius to win the game. The Yankees lost the first two games, making even the most loyal Yankees fans sweat a little. Through sheer determination and willpower, the Yankees won three straight games.

Judge ready to rise as baseball’s next icon

This season the MLB’s biggest story has not been political protests, nor has it been tragedies off the field or overblown news that the sport is dying. No, the biggest story this year has been a 25-year-old from Linden, California, whose presence in the Bronx has caused everyone to rise.

College football a major commitment

In reality, almost no one knows the grind it takes to play on the field in the first place. But student athletes on the field at any level of college football know it’s not just a game.

Carton scandal ushers in end of an era

The month of September has been unforgiving to WFAN Radio host Craig Carton. After celebrating the 10th anniversary of his immensely popular morning sports talk show “Boomer and Carton,” with co-host and former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason, he was arrested for an alleged involvement in a million dollar ponzi-scheme. On Wednesday, Sept. 13, Carton resigned from the station.
