Postseason Fanual 2.0: Reds Edition

Alright, Reds fans, I’ve decided to bring you the 2nd Edition of the Fan Manual (or “Fanual” as I like to call it) in honor of tomorrow night’s game between the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants: #1 – Dress accordingly. It is going to be one of those weird Cincinnati weather days where, during […]

Winning the Gold: Then and Now

Only twice since women’s gymnastics was introduced as an Olympic sport when the Modern Games began in 1896, have the USA women’s team brought home the team all-around gold medal: the first being when the Magnificent Seven won the hardware in Atlanta in 1996, and the second when 2012’s Fab Five dominated in London earlier […]

Visit to New Yankee Stadium

Not only was I fortunate enough to have visited the MLB Fan Cave during my trip to the Big Apple, I also had the opportunity to attend a game in which my two favorite teams played. I grew up a Yankees fan but also love the Cincinnati Reds, and having never been to New Yankee […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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.

Money CAN buy happiness…

Rumor on the streets is that Elin Nordegren will be coming up with a cool $750 million in her divorce settlement from [surprising] playboy ex-husband, Tiger Woods. Love is cool and everything, but if all I had to do was face my very famous husband screwing around behind my back with 20 women for that much […]

Dudes In Suits—World Cup Edition

The Slovenian National Team. I don’t know anything really about Slovenia except that I just read that it is about the size of New Jersey and it has the smallest population of all 32 nations playing in the World Cup (2 million, which is 300 million inhabitants our junior). And that guy on the right is a beaut […]

I Present To You, Deloria James-West:

After all this noise about Gloria James and Delonte West sleeping together (and—according to Hall of Fame player Calvin Murphy—is “absolutely true“), I thought I would morph their images to see how ugly their child would be after [accidentally] procreating. (Let’s be honest, they aren’t the most attractive people on the planet.) However, I was […]
