About Me + Contact
My name is Danny. I am an attorney by trade but an avid sports fan at heart. I was born and bred in a small town in New Jersey and despite moving away for college and law school, I am now back in my home state, living only a few towns from where I grew up. I am thirty-two years old and just got married to my best friend.
I grew up a New York Yankee fan in the 1980s. In addition to Don Mattingly, my favorite players were Billy Sample, Mike Pagliarulo, and Dan Pasqua. The Yankee teams I grew up rooting for were not perennial playoff teams. The highlight of my youth as a Yankee fan was being at the Stadium for Sam Militello’s first career start and first career victory. When the strike ended the Yankees season in 1994, I nearly cried. When the Yanks lost to Seattle in the playoffs the following year, I did. The Yankees winning the World Series in 1996 was unimaginable. I remember how upset I was that I couldn’t attend the parade in New York City because I had a high school soccer game. I thought that 1996 may have been the only chance in my lifetime to see such a spectacle. I think the majority of the Yankee fans today are spoiled by the success in the late 1990s.
I was upset when the Yankees opened the new ballpark, and I still miss the Old Stadium like crazy. Someone once asked me what the most beautiful place in the world I had ever visited, to which I responded, “Yankee Stadium.”
The other teams I root for are the New York Jets, New York Rangers, and my Holy Cross Crusaders. I started this blog in order to have an outlet for my writing. (I am pretty sure my friends were getting sick of receiving 1,000-word emails about my sport rants.)
