Book Review – Between Two Bridges by Victor Colaio

No Comments

It was sometime in the mid 1980’s. I was having dinner at Forlini’s Restaurant at 93 Baxter Street in downtown Manhattan with my good friend Rudy Riska, who was the Athletic Director of the Downtown Athletic Club, and was known as the King of the Heisman Trophy. I had grown up across the street from Forlini’s, in a tenement at 134 White Street, the corner of Baxter Street in the Sixth Ward, across the street from the city prison called the Tombs. Rudy had grown up on Madison Street, in the adjourning Fourth Ward, just a 10-minute walk away.

The Fourth and Sixth Ward people were friendly enemies, especially in sports. My first memory of the Fourth Ward was in 1958 when I went to play Little League baseball at Coleman Oval, under the Manhattan Bridge. By then the neighborhood had been completely transformed and tens of thousands of people had been thrown out of their homes by of the cruel law of Eminent Domain. This was done to make way for the construction of Al Smith low-income projects and the Chatham Green middle-income co-ops. The same thing had happened in the Sixth Ward, albeit on a smaller basis, to make way for the construction of Chatham Towers middle-income co-ops.

During dinner at Forlini’s, Rudy told me about the Fourth Ward of the 1940’s and early 1950’s. He mentioned streets that no longer existed; like Roosevelt Street and Oak Street, and parts of Williams Street. And he mentioned a Catholic church I never heard of named St. Joachim’s, which was on Roosevelt Street. Then Rudy started talking about the guys he grew up with.

“Do you remember Victor Star?” Rudy asked me.

No, I didn’t, but after reading the wonderful book “Between Two Bridges” by Victor Colaio (Victor Star), even though I never met the man, I know Victor Star very well (we even went to the same high school – Cardinal Hayes in the Bronx).

Both Victor and Rudy are about 10-12 years older than me. The Lower East Side they grew up in was slightly different than the Lower East Side I grew up in. Sure, we played stickball, stoopball, softball, hardball, basketball and football, like they did, but we had actual balls that we bought at a sporting goods store on Nassau Street, the name of which escapes me (Spiegels?). In Victor’s era, they bought pink Spaldeens, and the occasional Clincher softball, like we did, but their footballs were made of wrapped up newspaper and tape. Talk about roughing it. (I’m assuming they used real basketballs, because if the ball wasn’t perfectly round, how could they bounce it properly?)

Also, in Rudy and Victor’s era, television was a new invention; basically only bars had them to show sporting events like baseball and boxing. However, I don’t remember not having a TV set in my apartment, nor do I remember any of my friends not having TV sets in their apartments. But this was the mid to late 1950’s; not the mid to late 1940’s, when Rudy and Victor grew up.

In “Between Two Bridges,” Victor talks about spending many wondrous afternoons at the Venice Theatre, which was owned by a wonderful woman named Mazie, who let kids into the theater for free if they didn’t have the money. Mazie also gave money to the bums on the Bowery, so that they could buy something to eat, or most likely something to drink. I don’t remember the Venice Theater, but I do remember Mazie, but from the Chatham Theater on Chatham Square, under the Third Avenue El, which was knocked down when I was about 9 or 10 years old. However, the Chatham Theater remained there for many years.

In “Between Two Bridges,” Victor regales the reader with stories of how kids played ball in “The Lots,” a filthy strip of land under Manhattan Bridge. I don’t remember “The Lots,” but I do remember remember Coleman Oval, which was constructed on the former site of “The Lots.” This is where the Two Bridges Little League Baseball Association played their games. In fact in 1960, my Transfiguration Little League team beat Victor’s St. James Little League team for the Two Bridges Championship.

And then there were the nicknames, which almost everybody had.

Victor was Victor Star. My nickname in the Sixth Ward was Mooney; people still call me Mooney. Victor mentions childhood friends like Pete the Lash, who was built like a safe and wasn’t afraid to throw his weight around. After I moved to the Fourth Ward’s Knickerbocker Village in 1964, I met Pete the Lash, who was definitely an impressive physical specimen; only by the mid 70’s his brick-like body did have a bit of a beer belly. Even though Pete was basically a friendly, jovial guy, woe to those who got on the wrong side of Pete the Lash.

Victor mentions other nicknames names like Richie Igor, Nonnie, Paulie Knock Knock, Junior, Bunny, and Butch, all men whom I knew in later years. But I don’t recall Goo-Goo, Bobo the Hippo, Hammerhead, Paulie Batman, Georgie Egg, Bopo, or Bimbo. But I wish I did.

Growing up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in the 30’s through 60’s was a unique experience; an experience that no longer exist for the youngsters of New York City. In the Lower East Side, we grew up with people of all denominations and faiths. The Two Bridges Little Baseball League had teams from Transfiguration Church – almost exclusively Italians and Chinese. St James was mostly Irish with a few Italians. St. Joseph was mostly Italians with a few Irish. Mariners Temple’s team was Puerto Rican. Educational Alliance and LMRC were Jewish. And Sea and Land, sponsored by neighborhood people, were African-Americans. And there were Polish, Spanish kids from Spain, and Czechoslovakian kids sprinkled throughout the teams.

We didn’t have the time or energy to be racist or prejudiced. We all grew up together and we all respected each other. It was the only way to survive.

One thing that Victor points out in his book is very true. If you grew up on the Lower East Side, you grew balls; you had to. You had to fight almost every day, and if you didn’t; you got beat up almost every day. Bullies invariably picked on the weaker kids, or the ones who didn’t fight back. But if you did fight back, even if you caught a beating or two, the bullies moved on to easier pray.

It was just the law of the jungle.

The Lower East Side did produce mobsters of all nationalities. But it also produced doctors (Joe Fiorito), lawyers (Mathew J. Mari from the Fourth Ward is a prominent criminal attorney), politicians (Al Smith from James Street became Governor of New York and lost the Presidential Election in 1928), several judges ( Judge Piccariello), professional singers (Johnny Maestro, Luther Vandross), and professional athletes. Rudy Riska was one professional athlete from the Lower East Side (he played for the Triple A Yankees); his brother Steve was another (the Cincinnati Reds farm system). There was also a guy named Vinnie Head (I never knew his real name) from the Sixth Ward (NY Giants Farm system), and Charlie Vellotta, also from the Sixth Ward (Dodgers farm system). Charlie lived on the same floor with me at 134 White Street.

My next door neighbor at 134 White Street was Mikey Black; real name Michael Corriero (we shared a firescape, and Mikey used to frequently knock on my door because he forgot the key to his apartment and had to use my bedroom window to get onto the firescape to get into his apartment). Mikey, after being on the periphery of juvenile gangs when he was a teenager, became a lawyer, then a judge in New York State Juvenile Court System. He is now the Executive Director and Founder of the New York Center for Juvenile Justice.

So there.

Growing up on the Lower East Side in the mid Twentieth Century cannot be described any better than Victor Colaio does in “Between Two Bridges.” I highly recommend this book to all New Yorkers – no matter what age group. And if you come from other parts of the country, you can’t help but enjoy this brilliant book too. If people not from New York City can flock to watch a ridiculous program like “Mob Wives,” they should read a book that is true to life, not a stereotype of the worst possible people in the New York City area.

One more thing – if you don’t buy “Between Two Bridges,” I might have to send Pete the Lash to visit you.

And that can never be a very good thing.

Ways to Support Your Favorite Sports Team

No Comments

It is that time again, when the boys of the gridiron take over our lives. Yes, you guessed it, I am talking about the NFL Football season. For all you football fans your time has come to stand up and cheer!

It does not matter which team you show your support for, the die-hard fan honorably & proudly wears his/her team colors. He or she displays their favorite team by wearing a team jersey, ball cap, belt buckle, or even a pullover shirt.

The dedication these fans have to the devotion of their favorite team is relentless. Each year you can find more and more of the NFL sport collectibles. This new merchandise seems to have greater colors and many new gadgets. All this to quench the thirst of that #1 fan who just has to have the ultimate collectible. This fan wants to be able to show that he/she is truly the teams best fan.

The sports fan will look high and low for sports collectibles. Some look by surfing the internet, others check out every sporting goods store in town just looking for that one-of-a kind item they just got in. He/she is driven with an itch that cannot be scratched until completing the mission at hand.

Sports fans can support their favorite team in many different ways. Weather decorating their bedroom or game room with a team pennant, sleeping under official team blankets, painting the room in his favorite teams colors, or even by drinking out of either a coffee mug or a cool freeze mug.

The fierce competitiveness on the football field boils over to the fans who have that desire to have everything his/her team has to offer, from playing cards, mini helmets or even ice coolers. Sports Collectibles have every thing you need for that awesome bar-be-que for the tail gate party with all of your friends at the big game on Sunday. You can bet he is driven with the urge to show all his friends that his team is the best team in the whole NFL. As he travels great distances to see his team play football and dresses up in all the teams colors. He also will be watching his favorite team play every time they are on t.v. and you can be sure that the #1 sports fan will be the one you hear hollering at the t.v. as his team scores that amazing touchdown!

When a sports fan gets together with his friends or family all he wants to talk about & think about is his team. He will usually know every one of his teams stats, what place they are in, who they play next, and what it will take to win the next game. On your sports fans birthday, it is a great time to splurge and give that sport collectible gift or gift certificate to the one you care so much about. NFL Sport Collectables will have great financial impact on a city with all the revenue of sport fan merchandise, ticket sales, food purchases and beer sales.

So it is that time again, to get out all of our sports gear and all of our NFL stuff to show support for our favorite team.

Some people will go to any length to support their favorite sports team, whether it is wearing tennis shoes made by your team or driving to the park to play ball with your team logo on your clothes.

So with this in mind, it is important to have the NFL merchandise available because you never know when the next sports fan will be looking for that once in a lifetime find.

Fan Vs Supporter – What’s The Difference?

No Comments

I’m not saying that one is better than the other, just that there is an important difference.

What is the difference between the two?

Well, it’s in the words. A fan likes something, a supporter actively supports it. A regular fan wouldn’t drive 5 hours to support the FC Bayern Amateure in the cold March rain.

What do Supporters do differently?

Passion. Dedication. Loyalty.

Take a club like Bayern Munich for example. We have by far the most fans in Germany, but only a small group of true Supporters. The fans buy lots of merchandise and visit the home matches, and usually refer to the team, not the club. The fan idolizes players, but often knows little about the club’s history. When a club doesn’t do well, more and more seats will be empty, whereas the section of the Supporters is as full as ever.

The Mindest

A Supporter loves the club, not the team and its players. Those are mercenaries who do not identify with the club and will transfer as soon as more money is offered.

To a Supporter, it’s all about the club, not the team.

A fan sees this as a hobby or casual entertainment. But Supporters take it seriously. No matter where or when the club plays, or how important the match is, the Supporter is there. A lot of times this means sacrificing other aspects of his life – work, school, family, friends. That’s because words like loyalty and honor still have meaning. A Supporter will defend the club’s name if necessary, without getting it into trouble.
To the Supporter the club is a lifestyle.

The Supporter supports the team throughout the entire match, regardless of the score or the performance. Because the team needs the support the most when things are not going well. That is not to say that displeasure can’t be voiced. But the support of the team always comes first.

Simply singing or shouting is not enough. Every word uttered and every song sung has to be filled with all of the Supporter’s energy and passion. Even if the players on the field don’t care, it is done for the club’s honor and for all of the Supporter’s honor.

Sing until your lungs burn and you are ready to puke.

Supporters looks at everything the club does objectively and is not afraid to be critical. It is up them to protect the club’s values and integrity and to carry them on with their actions.

Should a decision of the club clashes with the Supporter’s believes, but benefits the club in the long run, the Supporter has to put his own interest aside.

Everything the Supporter does has to be in the club’s best interest.

All of these traits are vital. I have known people who went to every FC Bayern match, but didn’t support. There were those who sang passionately, but only cherry-picked a few matches a year. Not to mention the ones that were too drunk to even make it into the stadium, or those who only want to fight.

Unfortunately there seems to be a war going on against the Supporters/Ultras across Germany. The clubs want to replace us with customers who will shell out money without asking questions or criticizing. The clubs’ identities are slowly taken away. But this is for another article.

Pepsi – Nacional Sponsorship Case Study

No Comments

It was the month of July back in 1998 and the beverage industry was facing difficult times in Uruguay. Specifically, the increased sales of the “B-brands” (brands that do not invest in advertising and earn market-based prices), which continued entering illegally in the country, in combination with the hegemony of the red Cola brand and the double taxation was creating a cocktail of problems. The price of the product was the highest in the world!

The problem was clear for Pepsi, they needed a successful campaign to increase their sales. After reviewing and analyzing many different campaigns, the Pepsi executives decided to move the war from colas to football. Uruguayans are passionate about football, there are two clubs in which Uruguayans preferences are divided, Club Atletico Peñarol and Nacional Football Club. Other first division clubs is consisted of an approximately 10% of the fans and even them in many occasions support Nacional or Peñarol.

The first conclusion was that there was little to lose and much to gain. On the one hand they could lose the support of the Peñarol’s fans, but on the other hand they could win Nacional’s fans, it was more attractive to fight for the possible 50% than the ideal and imaginary 100%. After realizing that the benefits were clearly more than the negatives, they started planning the campaign.

The first concept upon which they started working and would develop the proposal was passion. This would be something more than habits, brand preference and in general any rational message and that was the only way to break the hegemony of the red Cola brand. This dichotomy will also provide more passionate and fanatical customers to Pepsi. That’s why Pepsi wanted to achieve greater identification with the Club and not be just a sponsor, it wanted to be the main partner especially back then when Nacional was celebrating its 100 years since its birth (1889-1999). Specifically:

1) The strategy generated mutual benefits: Nacional had been received an extremely important base for a 3-year agreement. Also, the club had handled all the advertising for the brand in various channels.

2) Pepsi capitalized this identity based on a consumer loyalty. Regardless of sporting outcomes, the company would enjoy the adherence of thousands of fans that would recognize the conceptual unit.

3) Pepsi extended its presence to an environment such as football by being the main sponsor on the official kit.

4) Nacional had an advertising medium that was important in order to develop a massive campaign of partners that doubled the current figure of that time.

As a final evaluation, Pepsi’s strategy with the Nacional agreement gave positive results at first and this was mostly due to the 100 years celebration and the positive sporting results. Participation and engagement grew and remained at good levels for a while, afterwards sporting successes decreased and the country’s situation demanded a larger investment from the part of Pepsi, which led to the resolve of the agreement.
