Frat boy sports fans who were disappointed that ESPN ended its relationship with Barstool Van Sports because of their past crudity towards Bristol air personality Samantha Ponder will be happy to know that BVS has its own channel on SiriusXM radio.

The NBA champion Golden State Warriors visited Queens as they held a practice at St. John’s University on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The current Red Storm men’s basketball team had the chance to interact with Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and company at the conclusion of the practice.

The NYC Marathon Expo held earlier this month at the Javits Center is obviously designed for manufacturers of running shoes and other apparel, knee braces. energy drinks and nutrition bars. One unexpected exhibitor was Long Island-based Bedgear ( which took up a sizable space on the Javits floor.

Bedgear reps offered an excellent reason for being prominent at the Marathon Expo. If you don’t sleep well then it is hard to do any exercise let alone think about running 26.2 miles.

Americans seem to be getting less sleep than ever and baby boomers are discovering as they age that it gets increasingly harder to sleep through the night. One such baby boomer, Mike Lindell, started his own company in frustration. Nearly everyone has seen those ubiquitous My Pillow TV ads.

The major complaints that most people have with pillows are they get flattened quickly, they get hotter as the night goes on, and of course that leads to sweat gathering on the pillow case. Bedgear’s Solar 2.0 pillow is quite sturdy without being uncomfortably stiff so that they maintain their density. The company uses a patented technology which they call Ver-Tex that keeps a pillow from getting warner and from absorbing moisture. It’s also ergonomically designed so that your time in bed doesn’t lead to neck and back pain.

Seth Meyers doesn’t get the attention for this 12:30 AM show that James “Carpool Karaoke” Corden does for his competing show on CBS at that hour and that’s a shame. Meyers, who many will remember from his days anchoring the Weekend Update desk on “Saturday Night Live,” is a skilled satirist with a quick wit and is an adept interviewer.

NBC will try to raise his profile as he will be hosting the 2018 Golden Globes on January 7. My guess is that he will be a worthy successor to Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler.
