Football is played during fall and winter yet people are wondering why is Super Bowl XLVIII being held in New York City. Well, football is a cold weather sport even though all the teams are not in cold weather states. Embrace the new and broaden your horizon. A little cold is good. Come! Furthermore, there is no place like New York City where you can have fun and be part of the Super Bowl spirit even if you do not have a lot of money to attend the expensive special events.

I was out yesterday getting photographs for my magazine and the city is definitely ready. I took a walk down Super Bowl Boulevard and despite the cold weather, preparations were in full swing. In Times Square, Fox Sports were busy setting up their broadcast booth and they had a good crowd looking on. Macy’s in Herald Square at 34th Street and Broadway (this is where Super Bowl Boulevard begins) is all decorated with life size NFL statues and on the 4th floor, it is all about the Super Bowl. This is where you get the official Super Bowl XLVIII gear, trading pins, posters and you will also have the opportunity to take your photo with celebrities.

This is New York City, this is the city that never sleeps, and as one sign on a football said, “SNOW, SLEET or HAIL MARY!” Yes, people of the world, come to New York City and New Jersey (yes, Met Life Stadium is in New Jersey) and enjoy the best Super Bowl ever. It is going to be epic and you want to be here.

The New iPad Air – Love It or Leave It

I had a chance to look at the features of the new iPad known as iPad air and the truth is it is very light. It makes for easy holding and compared to the 4th generation, that alone is worth getting the new iPad air.

Apple is consistently consistent with their products and they do not make sweeping changes from one model to the next. I think the reason for that is so they can add whatever is missing in the next generation products in the series. So guess what? In 6 months you can bet there will be an ipad Air 2 which will have an improved camera or some new feature that is not on the AIr. Notice their pattern, they could have easily put Retina display in their first iPad mini. But they did not. If you bought the ipad mini and you want the new one you could trade it in, and get the newer model.

Christmas is going to see a lot of tablets being given for gifts and i am sure the ipad AIr and the new iPad mini will top the sales again. If you have not yet seen the iPad Air, go into t store and go try it out. You will be amazed if for no other feature, but for how light it is. It beats you carrying around a heavy laptop on a daily basis. So, the verdict is in on the new iPad Air. Will you love it or leave it? I say love it.

The Manning Bowl

It is indeed an exciting time for football fans and Giants and Denver fans in particular. This weekend we will witness either in person or at home, the Manning Bowl. Elite Eli Manning and his brother, Peyton Manning play each other in Met Life Stadium on Sunday. It is going to be epic. The NY Giants cannot afford to go down 0-2, so they must win. While it is believed that despite the fact that Eli Manning has two Super Bowl rings and Peyton only one, Peyton is the better player. Well, as we have often seen, better does not always win. A little luck help and so as a NY Giants fan let’s pray that they will send Peyton home crying and Eli will be elite once again.

New York Knicks Must Win Tonight- Game 5

Knicks Now

Tonight the New York Knicks have the awesome opportunity to send the Boston Celtics off to a long summer. For the New York Knicks, this is Game 7. If the Knicks lose tonight they might very well lose the series and that would be a colossal failure. Knicks fans believe they will prevail and we expect them to go on to the NBA finals and win it. If you do not have that kind of faith – that’s alright.

Tim Tebow and the New York Jets

NYC Water Taxi – Way to go!

Everyone seems to agree that in the National Football League (NFL), business is business and the NY Jets releasing of Tim Tebow today was just business. That might very well be true, but there is a way to conduct business. Would any of these men i the Jets organization like an employer to treat their son like that?

When Tim Tebow came to New York last year, he was asked to appear at a press conference where neither Rex, Woody or any of Jets management was present. That should have been the first red flag. Then throughout the season, despite the terrible play by Sanchez, Tebow was never given a chance to play quarterback. To add insult to injury, the Jets waited until all the other teams had filled their rosters before releasing him. That was just wrong.

Tebow handled himself with class and the classless Jets ruined this young man’s career with an unceremonious dismissal. Where is he going to get a job now? Is he as terrible as everyone is making out. He took the Denver Broncos much further than where Peyton took them this season. That should count for something.
