Good morning, New York/New Jersey sports fans! Let's get right down to our first look at the regional sports scene.
Donnie Walsh Out As Knicks President: This is unfortunate, and in my eyes not good news for the future of the Knicks. Does anybody actually trust James Dolan not to beg Isiah Thomas to return, or to make a good choice for a replacement for Walsh is it isn't Isiah?
Rick Carlisle, One That Got Away From New York Knicks: Considering the fact that Carlisle is now coaching the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, and the mess the Knicks front office is, Carlisle is lucky he didn't get the job. You have to wonder, by the way, if current coach Mike D'Antoni will have that job much longer.
Mets Set Record For Consecutive Home Losses When Leading After Seven Innings: Not much to say about this other than it can't be easy to be a Mets fan these days.
Yankees At Angels: Yankees Beaten In Series Opener: Trips to LA to face the Angels never seem to turn out well for the Yankees. This one hasn't started any differently.
Columbus Crew At New York Red Bulls: New York Needs A Win: The 4-2-6 Red Bulls would like to start winning games instead of coming away with draws. Today, though, New York might accept a draw. The Red Bulls will be without six regular due to international call-ups.
2011 NCAA Baseball Tournament: St. John's, Seton Hall Win; Manhattan Routed: All three teams will be back in action today. Manhattan, however, will be facing elimination after being routed by Florida.
Stanley Cup Finals 2011: Game 2 Set For Saturday Night: The Boston Bruins need a victory over the Vancourver Canucks to even the series.
