Schwartz: An Amazin’ Sales Call Gone Wrong

Being a salesperson can be a challenge. Selling Mets tickets might be one of the most challenging jobs in sports. But as we found out last week, it can also bring a smile to your face.

Schwartz: Memo To The Haters — Derek Jeter Is No. 1 Where It Counts

When you get ready to call a show to foolishly rip a future Hall of Fame shortstop, make sure you say right at the top if you root for or hate the Yankees. This way, we’ll know if you’re an idiot or a jealous idiot.

Schwartz: The NHL Should Pull The Plug On The Olympics

It’s only been a few days, but I miss the NHL. And I think if you canvas fans around the league, they would prefer to not have to wait three weeks to watch games on television or go to games in person.

Schwartz: Super Bowl Sequel? In A New York, New Jersey Minute!

Should New York and New Jersey be given another chance? In my opinion, the answer is “absolutely.” And that’s is a far cry from how I felt when we were awarded Super Bowl XLVIII.

Schwartz: One Islander In Particular Will Feel Right At Home

Paul Cartier’s worlds are about to collide. He is the organist for both the Islanders at Nassau Coliseum and the Yankees, so it’s only fitting that he will play the organ on Wednesday night when the Islanders host the Rangers.

Schwartz: How Do You Fix The Pro Bowl? Make It A Flag-Football Game

It’s very simple. Since many people refer to the Pro Bowl as nothing more than a flag-football game, let’s just make it a flag-football game. Let’s turn the Pro Bowl into the NFL Pro Bowl Flag-Football Celebration.

Schwartz: The Icemen Cometh To The Bronx!

From baseball and football to boxing and soccer to concerts and papal masses, the houses that Ruth and Jeter built have played host to just about everything. And now hockey!

Schwartz: Woodzik Made The Right Call In Bringing Back Rex

Gang Green will watch the playoffs on television for the third straight year, but head coach Rex Ryan will return in 2014. And that’s a good thing.

Schwartz: Taking A Closer Look At The Rise Of ACL Injuries

You want to have fun, but you want to stay in the game. While the professional and collegiate athletes are getting the proper guidance, it’s important to make sure that youth players take part in the right strength programs.
