Move over “Broadway Joe,” and make room for “Times Square Tim.” Gang Green fans and all of the tri-state area should brace themselves for a marketing and branding phenomenon not seen in these parts since, well, Linsanity. “Tim Tebow can be the king,” said marketing expert Ronn Torossian, the CEO and president of 5W Public Relations in New York. “In terms of the Tebow brand, I think that Tim Tebow is already a national celebrity. He’s known off the field. There is no bigger place to shine than in New York City and I think the Tebow brand is one that transcends sports. I think the guy can get unlimited sponsorships in New York City.” LUPICA: JETS TRADE FOR A QB... AND CONTROVERSY Tebow’s popularity exploded last season in Denver after he became the starting quarterback and led the Broncos past the Steelers in the first round of the playoffs. “Tebow-ing” — where the QB kneels in a prayer-like stance … [Read more...] about Tim Tebow, new NY Jets quarterback, will be a big hit like Jeremy Lin on Madison Ave. says experts

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is scheduled to speak ahead of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers. We are efforting a livestream of Brady's news conference. Brady has spent the better part of his 19 seasons in the NFL eclipsing virtually every milestone set by his predecessors. Along the way, he's captured every major piece of hardware the league has to offer from multiple MVPs to Super Bowl titles, all while remaining at the top of his game at 41. Rodgers isn't as decorated as Brady, but has been just as celebrated during his 14-year career for a free-wheeling style and an uncanny ability to pull off plays that have been rarely duplicated by his peers. A town is horrified after a local homeowner, who claims to be Jewish, erected a Nazi-themed Halloween display outside her New Port Richey, Florida, home. Skeleton after skeleton is posed, with concentration camp identification numbers on their arms and a Star of David on their chests, offering a "Sieg Heil" … [Read more...] about Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady Speaks Ahead of Packers Game
Vinny Testaverde is so old that his Heisman Trophy is an antique. He's so old that the commissioner who called his name on draft day was Pete Rozelle. Vinny was around when Pac Man was a popular video game, not an NFL miscreant. In his day, the world was more concerned with KGB than HGH. Yes, there are plenty of Vinny jokes making the rounds these days, especially in the Carolinas, where the Panthers are being ridiculed for signing the Jurassic quarterback, who turns 44 next month. And it's now likely Vinny will start today against the Cardinals, as David Carr is questionable with a balky back. Our feeling? God speed, Vinny. This is good for sports. What can be impure about an old quarterback hanging around as long as he can, playing for the love of the game? Clearly, it's not about money. Testaverde has earned more than $50 million in his 20-year career, although the $850,000 he'll get from the Panthers is a nice take for three months of work. Testaverde plays because he can. … [Read more...] about Have you heard the one about the 43-year-old QB?
Vinny Casiano saw the tears welling in his father's eyes. He felt his father's tight embrace. And he heard the words coming from his dad's mouth. "Vin, I don't know how to tell you this," Eddie Casiano said. "But you have leukemia." The 17-year-old stood silent in the emergency room at Mary Immaculate Hospital in Jamaica. This wasn't supposed to happen, didn't seem possible. Three days earlier, on Aug. 27, Casiano had been throwing himself around a football field with reckless abandon as his Christ the King Royals scrimmaged Campus Magnet. That was all that mattered. "Dad," Casiano said, "can I still play football?" As Eddie shook his head, the tears began welling in Vinny's eyes, too. Football has been one of the important things in Vinny Casiano's life for as long as he can remember. He started playing in the local Lynvet program when he was 9 years old. "I love football," Casiano says. "It's always been my sport." It's little wonder, then, that the gridiron has … [Read more...] about Christ the King’s Vinny Casiano refuses to let leukemia keep him off the field
It was Saturday in Cambria Heights, Queens, and Canarsie quarterback Jarrel Turner was making his coach look pretty good. Turner connected with Sosha Callendar on a55-yard bomb, setting up a three-yard touchdown run by Steven Rene that sealed Canarsie's 28-12 victory over Campus Magnet. The pass preyed on a weakness in Campus Magnet's secondary, a flaw that Canarsie coach Mike Camardese had prepared his players to exploit. "We told you during the week: We thought we could beat them deep, and we did," Camardese said afterward. "That was part of our game plan." Campus Magnet had prepared just as thoroughly, but a day before the game the Bull-dogs were faced with distraction. As the team was preparing to walk through plays, police officers walked into the locker room, handcuffed defensive end Nmesoma Okafor and - in full view of players and parents - arrested the 6-6 senior as a suspect in a shooting that had occurred blocks from the school earlier on Friday. Okafor was … [Read more...] about For PSAL football coaches, there’s no such thing as a timeout
