NY1 is the best news television station in the country.: How does one measure such a thing? Quality of reporters, innovative stories and viewpoints, and of course, sports.

The screams emanating from our apartment tonight were not the result of Armando's blown save, or Mo's ever-enlarging girth, but the discovery that "Mens Wearhouse on NY1" Sports Anchor Duke Castiglione has a blog. I'm pleased to report he blogs in the same tone with which he answers calls during the late night call-in portion of the show. I once sat across from him on the F train. Sadly, he's soon moving on to NY1's hated rival, CBS2.

Coincidentally, we went to see a screening of Rosa Luxemburg tonight, and NY1 senior sports anchor Budd Mishkin was supposed to be there, but it turns out he's in Puerto Rico with the Mets.

I've never quite taken to 3rd stringer and "occasional producer" Kevin Garrity, though he has nice eyes. I guess I'll have to adjust.

Thanks to stingykids for unearthing duke's manila site. Hey Duke! Come over here and participate. We want to know if you're going to update the site again any time soon. Also, I think people are giving up to early on the Mets (again), and I still think Armando's the best closer in baseball. What do you think, Duke?

I wish we had good sports media in Seattle. KJR sucks ass. I like Duke's blog, but he desperately needs an editor. The spelling is atrocious.

yeah vito: No kidding. I think he's just on some mental spew mode when he does it, no capitalization, little punctuation, bad spelling. "marshall arts"? Whoa. However, as a stream of consciousness, spontaneous, sound-bite (byte?) thing, it's pretty good. Of course, I have no idea what he's talking about.

However, as a stream of consciousness, spontaneous, sound-bite (byte?) thing, it's pretty good. This is what's appealing about it to me - it's exactly the way he interacts with callers on the show!
