Had Jason Kidd paid any attention to politics and noticed how Vladimir Putin doesn’t take President Obama seriously, he probably would’ve thought twice before trying to bluff his Russian boss Mikhail Prokhorov. Russians don’t play that. Kidd made a play for more money and power with the Nets and Prokhorov apparently isn’t a fan of extortion. The Nets called Kidd’s bluff and didn’t give Kidd what he wanted. Then they gave Kidd permission to talk to the Milwaukee Bucks even though he is under contract. Kidd is now in aRead More

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about celebrities and athletes who are forced to apologize for comments they make. Here’s a link to it: http://marcoreport.com/stop-apologies/ Well, it happened again!! This time actor Gary Oldman had to go on Jimmy Kimmel to apologize for comments he made while being interviewed for Playboy magazine. The comments that got Oldman in hot water are as follows: We’re all fucking hypocrites. That’s what I think about it. The policeman who arrested him has never used the [N-word] or that [bleeping] Jew? I’m beingRead More

Growing up my mom always reminded us to “always wear clean underwear just in case you got into an accident”. I guess the point is that you don’t want to be embarrassed if you ever get into a situation beyond your control. No one wants to be referenced as “the kid with the skid marks in Room 32” by the hospital staff. Along the same lines for the new generation I’m sure many are preoccupied about always remembering to have a clean phone just in case you get pulled overRead More

I’m having one of those days when my mind refuses to think about anything else but purpose. What is the purpose of the ritualistic patterns of our lives that many are not content with? Yes, I know your bills don’t get paid on their own and food ain’t free so you have to go to work- but does spending days performing a task in exchange for money define life? We all know that there are expenses associated with living. In order to pay those expenses a lot of us fallRead More

Growing up my favorite college basketball team was the St. John’s Redmen. One of my coaches as a kid, Dan Waddleton, played point guard for them and that connection made me a fan. For a short time I even tried shooting lefty jumpers to imitate my favorite player Chris Mullin. Of course as a kid I had dreams of becoming a Redmen. I knew that “Redmen” was another name for Indian and beyond that I didn’t care. Just like I didn’t care what a “Yankee” or “Giant” was. They justRead More

The NBA and the NHL seasons are over and new champions were crowned this weekend. Congratulations to the Los Angeles Kings and the San Antonio Spurs! Albeit both series lacked the excitement of a game 7 being played it was still entertaining to see the beauty of fast-paced sports being played at such a high degree of excellence. The frenetic pace of the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers hockey game kept me riveted and made it almost impossible to look away from the screen. The Spurs blew outRead More

If you go back to 2008 you may recall that Barack Obama ran for President by blaming everything bad in this world on President Bush and promising to end the war in Iraq. One thing that can’t be argued is that when Bush left office the war in Iraq was won and all Obama had to do was sustain our success. In 2011 after we spent billions of dollars and lost thousands of American lives, Obama pulled all of our military out of Iraq. We turned our military operation overRead More

This past weekend I attended a friend’s christening for his son and had a great time with some great friends at my table. While catching up with one of them the topic that always surfaces when we run out of things to say came up – DeNiro or Pacino? For years we’ve been debating who the better actor is. We both present our arguments confidently thinking we won, until we hear the counter argument. Then we go into defensive mode trying to remember a role our actor played that matchesRead More
