Best Sports Fan's Bartender (2011)
Wanna know who’s going to be traded off the Knicks? How about what a Mets pitcher’s injury really means for the season? If so, Tommy Dee, a bartender at the Goldfish Oyster Bar & Restaurant in Ossining, is the man to ask. The 35-year-old Hawthorne resident shares this sports knowledge with his Goldfish patrons, usually on Friday and Saturday night, in between rounds of his famous espresso martinis and black cherry cosmopolitans. He attracts more than 30,000 unique hits per day at TheKnicksBlog.com, which he founded in April 2008. There, he broke the story that Amar’e Stoudemire would be rejoining D’Antoni and assured an anxious city as early as last September that Carmelo Anthony wouldn’t sign a contract extension with the Nets. He won a New York Emmy this year for his work at SNY.tv.
