I’ve been looking for this jacket for over a decade. A few weeks ago, I walked into Modell’s and BOOM – there it is – the Bill Belichick 1980’s Giants Jacket. Now it may not be the exact replica of the famous red Belichick jacket, but it’s close enough. If there was ever a piece of clothing that represented the Parcells era, it’s this jacket right here. If you’re a Giants fan, this is the perfect jacket to have for March weather. Buy it.

5 Borough Sports Is Back

Bought a 2002 Jason Sehorn figurine in Hawaii…why not?

So after an eleven month hiatus, 5 Borough Sports is back. I gotta admit, the site looks pretty depressing with the 2013 Yankee Preview as the last post written. It’s time for 5BS to be done the right way. No one gives a shit about typical sports analysis. You can find that everywhere on the internet. On this site, I will post whatever I want about sports. I am a die-hard sports fan from the Upper East Side of Manhattan, so there will a ton of posts about my four favorite professional New York teams – Yankees, Giants, Islanders and Knicks.

I am also a crazy fan of my alma mater, Wake Forest, so don’t be surprised if I throw in some Demon Deacon sports to the blog. Growing up in New York, it’s hard to have a college sports team granted the closest Division 1A school was Rutgers. But my father graduated from the great Fordham University in the Bronx, so I grew up a Fordham fan.

Looking back at the site, I realized I never finished my New York sports rivalries countdown. Look for that in the near future along with many other countdowns. Sammywestside will make his return to 5BS  for March Madness and other random sports stuff in a few weeks. This summer, 5BS television will return to the site.

So there you have it – the blog about Yankees, Giants, Islanders, Knicks, Wake Forest, and Fordham…Welcome back to 5 Borough Sports.
