The It’s a Wrap Weekend Wrap: April 18, 19, 20, 2009

by Backpageman on April 20, 2009

What a weekend, Nation. Sheff hits his 500th. Yanks lose 22-4. The ghost of Jeffrey Maier returns. And, we now have our first Swami of the young season. The formidable James S nails it with FAN-TASTIC. Well-played, James. (Check out the new callout and standings in the column to your right.) And, if Backpageman does say so himself, what better way to celebrate than with a delicious wrap from soon-to-be friend of the site, It’s a Wrap, your natural food, wraps, smoothies, juices and more store, located in beautiful South Orange, New Jersey! Here they are, with extra mustard…. Your Backpages…

Now A Word from Our Sponsor

by Backpageman on April 20, 2009

A few days ago,, the gold standard for team blogs, started calling its pre-game posts the “Pepsi Refresh Pre-Game.” Now, those with a more idealistic point-of-view may be offended by such shameless shilling. Not your Backpageman. He’s wondering how he can turn the attention of the likes of readers like you into cash money. So, with apologies (not really), I will be testing out some sponsorships of my own. Advertisers, please feel free to contact me directly to set up a payment schedule. 


A Special Invitation to Metsblog Readers

by Backpageman on September 9, 2008

First of all, as the late Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo once said, welcome aboard. is a site dedicated to a game many of us already play: Guessing the Backpages of the NY Post, Daily News and Newsday before they come out. With the Mets Vs. Nats clearly being the biggest story of the night, this is a great chance to dabble in the dark art of Backpageology.

How do you play? Simple. Log on to this site tonight after the game or in the morning before 10 am. Then submit your guess using the entry form in the sidebar or email Winners will be announced on this site. (For those guessing in the morning, you must swear that you have not sneaked a peek at the Backpages. Cheaters will be required to work for one week without pay at Doug Henry’s World of Used Fords in Yuma, Arizona.)

Again, Welcome Aboard. Hope you’ll get in the game. And, while you’re here, please bookmark this site.


Kill Bill. Awesome.
