Visit to the MLB Fan Cave

Prior to visiting the MLB Fan Cave, I was unfamiliar with the entire premise of the invite-only venue. It’s not often I plead complete ignorance — in real life and in sports — so this experience was certainly a unique one, being that I had no idea what to expect. This year marks the second […]

Super Bowl: Two Words, Two Teams, One Winner

For many reasons, I am having a bit of trouble trying to decide who I’d like to win Super Bowl XLVI. I believe it’s a pretty even match-up and I wouldn’t be surprised (or mad) with either team winning. Below are a few points that I think can help me decide: New York > Boston. […]

Defending Female Fanhood. Again.

I’m the first to sing Twitter’s praises, but it isn’t always rainbows and unicorns. It’s no secret that Twitter haters run rampant, and I am not one who ordinarily encourages enabling them by giving their drivel any time of day. Conversely, I think this needs to be addressed. About a week ago, I saw a […]

Where is she now?

Remember her? I’m watching Little Giants and got to thinking: where is Icebox now? I was about her age when this movie came out in 1994, and — though I never played football — I was quite the tomboy. According to IMDb, it looks like Shawna Waldron still has a career in acting. And she’s […]

The Prince of Pop

I was the first to make Aaron Carter comparisons, exclaiming I couldn’t wait until the day we get to see The Biebs battling a meth habit. The day we finally saw his baby face plagued with craters and meth mouth. The day we witnessed his inevitable fall from post-tween-sensation grace. I never understood why grown […]

Maturity and the Bengals of new

For so many years (think 2001–2010), we (Bengals fans) defended our problem children (Chad, T.O., Housh, multiple inmates, arrestees and—yes—even Carson in his own way) and enabled them to say, do and act as they pleased. While they’d gallivant around the field, city and the country as a side-show act, we continued to support them, […]

The [Huge] Weekend in Sports

In the annual Crosstown Shootout, XU tarnished a fantastic win by going all “Gangster” on the Bearcats. Really, it was an embarrassment to the city and the tradition, and the ‘punishments‘ that were delegated on Sunday were equally (if not more so) embarrassing. Ryan Braun tested positive for PEDs. Seriously, everyone has done it. And honestly, […]

Welcome Back, Hoosiers

Growing up an Indiana Hoosiers fan, I had the pleasure of watching Bob Knight’s perennially-good teams grace basketball courts across the country. When Kelvin Sampson single-handedly destroyed the program in 2008, fans were hard-pressed to have an optimistic outlook, let alone any kind of reasonable timetable for when the program would start to look up.

The Perfect Christmas Compilation

Now that it’s safe to publicize Christmas music without being scolded, I decided to share with you—what I like to think is—the perfect Christmas (Should I have said ‘Holiday’? Is that the PC thing to do these days?) Compilation: Waitresses – Christmas Wrapping Justin Bieber – Mistletoe *NSYNC – Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays Leon Redbone […]
