U.S. sucks.....as it should. Soccer is not an American sport.

Plenty of PEOPLE didn't need the note...

If it wasnt for all the media hype, soccer would not even be popular. Next, we will be paying forRead More viewing soccer on our already over charged cable bill that places a surcharge on sports casting. Nice isnt it for those who have no interest in sports what so ever!

Replace "Cheer" with Marching Band...talent. difficult routines. practice a lot. Yep. IsRead More Marching Band a sport? Nope. Neither is cheerleading. Nobody is saying cheerleading is not athletic, or whatever. But that doesn't make it a sport...

Who will cheer them on? Will there be cheerleaders for the cheerleaders?
Patricia Mosier June 15, 2014 at 05:57 pm
Cheer leading is most definitely a sport. ..I didn't realize how much it was til my granddaughterRead More started it and how hard it really is.....These kids are incredible and more than just athletes!!!!

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 07:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 10:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

Someone tell the new owners of Patch - private equity firm Hale - that Patch is only relevant forRead More hyper-local news and information. We will get our sports and weather elsewhere.
Phil Konigsberg February 11, 2014 at 04:04 pm
I agree with New York Patriot - and how about getting what you post comprehensive - since youRead More mentioned the NHL teams that our local area Olympians are affiliated with, how about mentioning that Ryan Callahan is with the NY Rangers. The daily Bayside-Douglaston Patch emailed newsletter needs to be updated on a daily basis. Right now the I receive the identical email every day. Enough with the meatball soup already!

I have been informed that Sachem EAST athletic director , Pete Bleiberg suspended Issac Ramaswammy.Read More Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee and Co-varsity wrestling coach at Sachem EAST for having a voluntary practice on Wednesday night . The Section XI qualifier will be hosted by Sachem East this Saturday without their Hall of Fame coach. This is a disgrace. When a coach or a Teacher goes above and beyond, he gets punished? I must say I am a bit biased as my two boys were coached by Coach Swammy,and a few years ago were both MOW at the the same league tournament the arrows are preparing for. Both were all- American Greece-Roman wrestlers because of his guidance. And both went on to wrestle at the University of Maryland. All because of Issac. It is an outrage that this man is being punished! I TRUSTED THIS MAN WITH MY Children since they were 5 years old and he has encouraged them to accomplish both athletic and academic goals they would of never accomplished if he didn't invest his time to teaching them to be good student athletes and good men. On the night my son, Sean won the Most Outstanding Wrestler award, I was notified that one of Sean's classmates who lived down the block was found dead due to a drug over dose. No one got suspended for not helping this kid . Coach Swammy , this past Wednesday you had a choice to roll over and stay warm in your home, or go the extra mile to help some Sachem students at a critical part of their development. You chose to help the students. Thank you for being YOU But when someone goes above and beyond to help today's youth......they get suspended? This is a sad day for the Sachem community.

We never know what tomorrow may bring. Therefore, preventing danger to happen is a clever thing toRead More do. Yet, when we're in a situation between life and death -- we can also think if we could ever escape? However, prevention is still better that cure and as we quote "it's better to be ready that to be sorry." And for this, I would suggest this safety service that I'm currently using for me and my family. It is a Panic Button installed on a Smartphone's and it allows us to alert all the member of our family when danger comes. It can also identify the exact location and have the ability to search the address of any family that you wanted to locate. You can browse their other features with this link: https://login.safekidzone.com/Relentless-Protection-For-Our-Kids-With-a-Cell-Phone/?a_aid=514ae2c64ba1d&a_bid=dc55bebf
