Below is a simple to use format to write to opposing teams after your team gets beat. Can be used in any sport in any city. Feel free to use and ad lib as you feel necessary. This can apply to any US City. Dear {Opposing Team Players Name}, I am a {team that lost} fan, I bleed {their team colors}. Although I will be the first to tell you that on {day after loss}, we {BS excuse for losing}, so {you got lucky otherwise we would have won statement}. My {social media addiction site} keeps showing you, but not in a good way. It is a video of you {doing something to a meaningless team “icon”}. You see the one thing that people don’t realize is, {insert any team name} fans aren’t just fans. The {team icon} symbolizes {blah blah family community charity like thing that every other city and...

Dear Danica Patrick, How are you? Me? I’m good. Dealing with a sinus infection, but I’ll be fine. Here’s the deal. I like you. Not in a romantic way, but I’m a fan of car racing. Always have been. Huge fan, actually. I go to two NASCAR races a year and have followed auto racing all my life (I’m 33). I’m writing to let you know I’m not happy with a few choices you have made. Now, I understand the sport and how sponsorships work, but your GoDaddy commercials are borderline porn, and I want to help you out. You are an extremely talented race car driver. I have watched you race over the past several years and have enjoyed watching you succeed. Hell, I even got a tear in my eye when you won your first race in Japan. My problem with your commercials is that you could have set the...

Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi is the best player in history and was always different, his former team-mate has written Former Barcelona captain Xavi has paid a warm tribute to Lionel Messi, who he believes is the finest footballer of all time. Messi scooped the fifth Ballon d'Or of his stellar career in Zurich on Monday, taking back the game's most coveted individual prize from his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo. Xavi played alongside Messi from the Argentina star's introduction into the Camp Nou first-team squad until the midfielder brought down the curtain on his own celebrated Barcelona career at the end of last season. Writing an editorial for Spanish newspaper El Pais, Xavi remembered being transfixed by the sublime talents of a teenage Messi on the training...

For 50 years plus I have been a loyal, proud and dedicated supporter of The Lions. Claret and blue through and through, and totally true, no matter what. Like so many fellow followers I have experienced all the highs and lows of our once great club during this period. I am fortunate enough to actually remember the times when Villa Park was a fortress, no one team enjoyed playing us at home, we were formidable – yes, honestly, every visiting club knew they were in for a game irrespective of our current form or league position. How times have changed. The Villa’s current situation is without doubt, for me at least, lower than low, it’s through the floor and getting worse by the day, we are well and truly sunk. Having followed the lads into the third tier of football in the past, I can...

Dear Slightly Mad Studios, It’s that time of year where we look back, reflect and try to share good will all around. On reflection and specifically in regards to Project Cars, I’ve enjoyed a roller-coaster of emotions and very much a love/hate relationship with the game on the Xbox One. For the most part, I’ve loved it, I really have. That other car racing game (for whom we shall not mention), even with fewer bugs and issues than pCars, sucks in comparison and this comes from someone who has bought and played all the games in that series. Ian, you and your team have given me many hours of enjoyment and have actually made me care and garner some affinity with all the different types of car on offer to drive… which is ironic, because it’s what that other game has been trying to do for...

I feel sorry for Matt Barnes and the Charles Barkley’s and other of African American decent who feel they have a right to use the N-word. Just because something is said or done by others and is popular does not make it right / useful/ helpful. Fortunately you guys have the attention of national media so at least this gets discussed. Unfortunately your celebrity status has co-signs others feeling justified perpetuating an age-old derogatory stamp/ curse. No “we don’t have to get use to it!” The power of the WORD matters. The mindset of Nigga is a disease that for too many of young, poor African Americans is a negative part of our identity or how we have been taught to see ourselves. The toll this mistaken identity has taken on people in this country African Americans in...

Dear Kendra and Alexa, Beyond the heroics on the field, and say, a Super Bowl victory, why a young fan takes to any one football player is a mystery. A personal attraction. In Oakland, the capitol of Raider Nation, the years I was a kid there we had everyone from the Black Panthers, the Hell's Angels, the Zodia Killer, and Charley O. Finley. And, we had the Raiders... Your father, with his left-handedness and those two bad knees, displayed a permanent smile of bemusement that said -- win or lose -- "ain't this fun?" I really did see in him the honor to be found in playing the game, of using one's god given talent, of taking pleasure in the effort. That Ken Stabler came from the likes of Alabama yet played right there in my home town helped me understand the variety found in...

Dear Mike Woodson, Let me start by saying I’m sorry. Last season, I wrote (endlessly) in this space that you were the main culprit of the Knicks’ failures. It was your switching defense that turned New York into one of the worst units on that end of the floor in the NBA. It was your inability to hold all your players accountable in the same way without playing favorites that killed chemistry. It was the isolation offense that put too much onus on Carmelo Anthony that stagnated the offense. It was your late-game play calls, or lack thereof, that often ended in contested Melo 22-foot jump shots after a boring isolation play that turned potential wins into losses. It was terrible to watch, and all those things were, in fact, your fault. But it was better than the first 24 games we’...

Dear Dr. Rabinowitz, Last Thursday afternoon, a good friend died and a piece of who I am went with it. When you shut down the football program with no warning; no cries for help; no rallying of the troops…all I have left is a burning empty feeling that used to be Hofstra University. After it sunk in, I was shocked at whose hands were on the killing trigger. What you did was equivalent to a mafia hit. We all know you did not give the Hofstra football family a chance to “save” the program because maybe you knew we would have been able to keep this program a float, even if we had to fund it ourselves. There are too many great people who Hofstra football calls as alumni that would not let this program die; you obviously never connected with that group. I regret your...
