Mike Lupica is reportedly the reason why ESPN canceled the Sports Reporters

Mike Lupica’s reputation within sports media circles is not good. The words “insufferable,”  “pompous,” and “diva” have been used to describe him and those are the kinder ones.

Mike Lupica now writes for Sports on Earth??? And he’s now on Twitter???

One of the more insufferable writers in America is Mike Lupica. He has an inflated ego and is willing to let you know how good he is in no uncertain terms. Yet, he remains as a featured coleum its with the New York Daily News after taking a significant pay cut after the paper’s latest round of layoffs last year. The Sports Reporters panelist and former ESPN Radio New York host...

Bill Madden and Mike Lupica are out of work, and I should be celebrating, but...

Last night, when the GOP's Last Convict Standing puttered into its 16th scoreless inning - (a three-hour debate? you gotta be kidding me) - Jeb Bush was imitating Beau Bridges, and my steel-trap mind somehow flash-connected him to the Baker Boys, which somehow reminded me of Tampa, and suddenly I remembered there was something important going on, and I clicked to YES, where Dellin...

It must be that time of the month: Lupica (yawn) unloads (again) on A-Rod

Mel Allen used to keep an egg-timer in the booth to remind him to recap the game score for new listeners. The Daily News' Mike Lupica must have had electrodes implanted in his head to inspire another regular drunk-dial rant A-Rod.If Alex Rodriguez lately were promoting ISIS or exposing himself to toddlers, Lupica could righteously rip him as a disgrace to humanity. Instead...

What does Mike Lupica and A-Rod have in common?

Both have a new script but the same old circus act.A-Rod recycles an old apology, while Lupica reruns an old column, switching the last paragraph for the lead. Works every time.

New York Yankees: Easy does it Mr. Lupica

Since the New York Yankees recently extended the contract of general manager Brian Cashman, there have been a slew of articles written by those “in the know” -- namely the Bombers beat writers and others in the New York print media -- about how the Yanks will fare in the upcoming season.Today, I’m going to delve into the work of one of the most well-known members of New York’s...

Mike Lupica is livid

I like Lupica. Good grief, I've been reading him since Hoss Clarke arrived. He's New York's Dan Shaughnessy, minus six pounds of curls and 10 descriptors per paragraph. I remember Old George mocking him as "little Mike Lupica," as if The Boss was some titan of manhood, rather than just Leona Helmsley with a penis. And it was always to watch Lupica bounce from the Daily News to the...
