    Phil Falcone Is Thinking Things

    Like maybe now that he’s got all this free time on his hands, he should lace up his skates and whip the New York Islanders into shape? With his afternoons unoccupied for the next four years and his old Harvard game plans already dug out of the attic, the three-time Ivy League hockey champion is […]

    Dick Fuld Attends Hockey Game Without Getting Into Physical Altercation

    One tale many love to tell about Richard S. Fuld, besides the one involving him destroying an 158 year-old institution, is that of the time he got into a fistfight at his son’s hockey game, with a parent from the opposing team. Though there have been many stories over the years of adults who lack impulse control throwing down at their children’s sporting events, perhaps people were fascinated by the fact that the the CEO of a public company was unable to reason that punching someone in the face at a Peewee hockey game = bad, keeping your hands to yourself = good.  On that note, one sports fan reports that Fuld has since matured, and realizing his own limitations, now travels with protection (for himself/spectators in his section).

    “Was at the Rangers/Devils game last night sitting a few rows behind Dick Fuld and his wife. He was with two goons who were clearly his body guards, one sitting next to him in a tan jacket and the other one standing behind him in black. Fuld was wearing a suit…I guess to try and look like he actually has a job he was coming from befoe the game.”

    Bond Trader Breaks Up Slow Day On The Floor By Practicing With Florida Panthers At MSG

    Yesterday having been a pretty slow day, most of you probably dealt with the boredom in the usual ways (dicking around on the internet, throwing a Nerf ball around with colleagues, untangling your phone cord, counting the number of steps from the bathroom to your desk, fantasizing about a life that doesn’t so closely resemble […]

So he’s done the next stupidest thing: He bought a hockey team. Some of a hockey team, anyway. He’s got a 40% chunk in the Minnesota Wild, the team that replaced […]

    Area Man Threatens To Out-Toilet Stevie Cohen

    Trouble in hedge fund land. Greenwich residents are terrified that would-be new neighbor, Russian millionaire Valery Kogan, will make them look bad (read: poor) by building a proposed 54,000 square foot mansion with two wings, “extensive” subterranean space, and room for up to 300 guests, which will clearly dwarf their own homes, relative shacks compared […]
