Baseball is a sport with a long history, possibly going back over 200 years. But it isn't clear exactly when and where the sport originated. There have been many different theories over the years and even some debate over whether baseball evolved from a British game or is a truly American sport. Many of the theories of baseball's origins link back to New York. It was once attributed to Abner Doubleday, who was a United States Army officer and Union general during the Civil War. It is also rumored to come from the outskirts of New York City, in what is now Greenwich Village. And an author published the first rules of "base ball" for an NYC club called the Knickerbockers. But what is the truth? Is baseball really a New York sport?
The NFL has been incredibly popular in the US and around the world for many years. While the rules might differ slightly from the ones we saw fifty years ago; much of the game is still the same as it always was. As you will discover throughout the course of this short article, the NFL has a long and interesting history that most people are unaware of. With that in mind, we ask you to get comfortable and take a look at the timeline we've included below. We've done our best to ensure all the major milestones are listed in this article, so you're going to learn some pretty cool stuff.
When I heard that Carmelo Anthony re-signed with the New York Knicks I was baffled. Especially after it was pretty much well known that Kevin Love was headed to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Now that Love heading to Cleveland is a done deal, it's even more baffling that Anthony wouldn't leave New York for Chicago this past off-season. It definitely changes the calculus for betters, with sports betting systems like these, one could have predicted a Chicago Bulls championship with Anthony on the roster.
No defensive intensity. No heart. An abundance of potential draft busts, including the first-overall selection. A lot of teams allegedly "tanking", or deliberately racking up losses in an effort to boost the chances of a high lottery pick, preferably the top pick. That was the NBA season in a nutshell, though the NHL season was much better and that fuels some very exciting New York Rangers playoff predictions. In terms of numbers, only 13 teams being able to hold their opponents down to less than a hundred points per game.

For the last two decades, New Yorkers have held one inescapable truth: the Yankees are better than the Mets. Since 1995, when Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera came up for the Yankees, the Bronx Bombers have barely missed the playoffs and put up five World Series banners. The Mets have endured nearly a dozen losing season and made only one World Series – losing to, you guessed it, the Yankees.
For those who can't get enough hockey and particularly those who might consider it a future career, the upcoming Hockey Business Career Conference on June 29-30 at the Marriot Marquis hotel in Times Square is worth a visit.
It is evident to anyone who kept up with this past NFL season that the Jets just never seemed to be ready for a successful season. Even before the season, the media seemed more fascinated by the backup quarterback than the actual play of the starter. Day in and day out, the media poured in Jets Training Camp to find out whatever they could about Tim Tebow.
As I had started this series back when the Nets were still based in New Jersey, that's why we're featuring the now-Brooklyn Nets next in this series. As one of the four ABA teams to join the NBA after the 1976 merger between both leagues, the Nets haven't had the same amount of success relative to their 37 NBA seasons as they had in their nine-year ABA run. But they're a team on the way back up, thanks to recent acquisitions like Joe Johnson, the brilliant trade that sent Deron Williams to the team in exchange for Devin Harris, and Brook Lopez finally enjoying a healthy, productive season as starting center.
The amount of money bet by NY sports fans on professional games from the NFL to the NBA, and MLB total billions of dollars annually. While bookmaking is still illegal in all US states except Nevada, NY bettors may have an option that's closer to home if some Canadian lawmakers get their way.
