I will gladly accept bribery to put your site on this list.
My favorite site. Not for those easily offended.
This is a great NBA blog. The NBA (National Basketball Association) is a professional men's basketball league, consisting of 29 American teams, and one Canadian team. It was founded in 1946. Cincinnati used to have a team. I wish it did now.
Better Off Red
Jamie Ramsey is the Assistant Media Relations Director of the Reds. He takes you behind the scenes of a Major League team. And he writes funny captions for his photos.
Plenty of scenery and funny stuff on Big Smudge. I'll be honest, these guys told me they were fans of my show, and even if they didn't mean it, that gets them linked.
Bugs and Cranks
If it's about baseball, these guys usually have something to say about it. And it's usually funny.
Booze, Ladies, and Football.
Calling It Like It Is
A guy from Cincinnati, who uh, well he calls it like it is.
Chris Sabo's Goggles
A Reds fan stuck in Chicago does a blog. He says the purpose of the blog is to inform people of the Reds without the geeky stuff, like facts for example. My kind of guy.
You're probably thinking this website is about me. Actually, it's not.
Local college basketball blog by two guys...one a UC fan, the other an XU fan.
The Godfather of sports blogs.
My favorite baseball blog. I thought I loved the game, then I read these guys.
Stuff guys like. At least stuff normal guys like.
Hugging Harold Reynolds
Very funny sports blog with one of my favorite names.
John Clay's Sidelines
John is an outstanding writer who covers everything and anything UK-related.
Larry Brown Sports
The other Larry Brown, not the guy who's coached half the teams in the NBA.
Look At Me Shirts
Be the guy in the ironic shirt. Take credit for someone else's joke.
Mo Egger's Blog
Did you really think my blog wouldn't be on a list of "favorites?"
Do you like mind-numbing statistical analysis of the Reds? Do you treat every game like the fate of the world rests on it? This site is probably not for you.
Most negative man in America. And I usually agree with him.
Pro Football Talk
Not daily, but almost hourly reading for NFL fans.
Everything and anything Reds...and more, by Reds fans.
Rush The Court
The Ubiquitous college basketblog.
A little UK, a little Louisville. A lot of funny.
Anything and everything hoops.
A Cincinnati guy based in Vegas. What I'd write if I could write.
Because some things can't be taught.
I admit, I'm a geek.
Who Dey Revolution
No site better captures the frustration of being a Bengals fan better than this one. Fan empowerment at its best.
A FEW MO' THINGS, 5/4/12
There's some serious personal space violating going on here.
Good teams win in spite of, bad teams lose because of.
There's a lot of reasons the Reds could have, and probably should have, lost yesterday. The lineup was head-scratching, the managing was mystifying, and the hitters spent much of yesterday afternoon looking like they were swinging while holding the wrong end of their bats.
And they still won. In spite of themselves.
The sheer ineptitude of the Cubs had a hand in it. So did some continued outstanding bullpen work. And give the Reds credit for putting together enough good at-bats in the ninth to put pressure on Carlos Marmol and Rafael Dolis.
The dramatic win was badly needed - a 4-4 homestand would've been unacceptable - but it does not and should not mask the continued offensive issues that have now plagued this team for four weeks. If anything, the thing that stood out yesterday, aside from the four runs in the ninth and tenth, is that when Dusty Baker has to call on the scrubs, the options continue to be very, very, limited.
It's still early, but it's not as early it was two weeks ago. Unfortunately, this offense is just as maddeningly inconsistent as it was back then.
-Homer Bailey. Jay Bruce. Drew Stubbs.
Three players we absolutely couldn't wait to see in the Major Leagues. Three players we couldn't wait to ship back to the minors when we determined they weren't ready.
Let's remember this when we start putting pressure on the Reds to get Billy Hamilton tomorrow at the latest.
-It's time for the first #RedsTweetUp of 2012!
It will be next Friday....Reds v. Nats. $25 gets you a mezzanine level ticket, the new #RedsTweetUp t-shirt, and a $10 credit for concessions. Plus, it's both Free Agent Friday and Fireworks Friday. I will be there. You should be there too. For all the info go here.
-I know we're predisposed to not root for the Yankees, but this sucks...
The greatest closer of all-time isn't supposed to go out like this. Here's to hoping Mariano Rivera decides to pitch again and comes back next season.
ESPN's Sweet Spot Blog agrees.
*As the Miami Heat have asserted their dominance over the Knicks, the national pundits have attempted to make my favorite NBA team's issues deeper than they are.
The problem isn't Carmelo Anthony. He's been miscast and added to a team that's deeply flawed. No, he's not great defensively, and he takes some awful shots, both characteristics that put him on a lengthy list of celebrated players just like him.
The problem wasn't 'Melo when he was carrying his team down the stretch.
The problem is that they're simply not good enough to beat elite teams like Miami, especially when LeBron is as good as he was last night. New York could've had eight guys on the floor and they'd still have no chance to slow down James. A Knicks team at full strength could make this series interesting, but has not chance to compete without their missing pieces.
But they still wouldn't win. Miami is better at nearly every position, can impose their will on defense, and are led by the best player in the sport.
It doesn't go much deeper than that.
*This is an outstanding account, from a former Seattle Supersonics employee, of the final days of the franchise. It will make you hate Starbucks, among many other things, just a little bit more.
*It's scary how good the Oklahoma City Thunder can be when they contest shots at the rim. They put on an interior defense clinic in drubbing the Mavericks last night.
*I'm not sure what's more sobering as a Knicks fan...the NBA record 13 straight playoff losses, or the fact that they've played 38 straight postseason games without scoring 100.
-I'm not a huge hockey guy, but there's been a compelling NHL playoff game on nearly every night. That's all I got.
-I'm not irresponsible enough to conclude that Junior Seau's suicide is connected to head injuries he suffered during his football career.
But I do know that Seau joins a list of former players who took their own life that includes Andre Waters, Dave Duerson, and recently Ray Esterling.
I know that hundreds of former players and their families have already joined a legal action against the NFL, claiming the league was negligent in not doing enough to lessen the risks from head injuries.
Could Seau's family join this litigation? Maybe.
Seau's death, aside from the devastating impact to his loved ones (the footage of his mom addressing the media is very difficult to watch), sharpens the scrutiny that the league and the sport in general are facing. It only amplifies the arguments, even if you disagree with them, against the very existence of a game we all love, and it will probably intensify the efforts of Roger Goodell to continue to change the league, probably for the better.
-Kentucky and Indiana won't play anymore, at least for a while.
I don't care who's more at fault. I don't care about the finger-pointing. I don't care where they play. I care that fans lose.
-As a fan of a sport that needs colorful, transcendent stars, I want Bryce Harper to live up to the hype.
