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, 7/18/12
-No Joey, no Jay, no problem. The blueprint for winning games while the team's best player is on the mend: don't allow the other team to score. The Reds have to still be considered the favorite in the NL Central because of the continued excellence of the starting pitching. As he's done so often this season, Johnny Cueto came up big after a Reds loss, the bullpen was money down the stretch, and Reds pitchers sidestepped trouble all night.
How many times this season has a team left 12 men on base while being shutout?
How many times have the Reds scored without the aid of a hit?
And how many times have you watched Ryan Ludwick and thought "man, am I glad the Reds signed that guy?"
Long game. Hot night. Important win.
-Worth pointing out however, that Johnny Cueto cruised through the first ten D-Back hitters he faced, until Willie Bloomquist broke up the no-hit bid with one out in the fourth.
Will Willie Bloomquist ever cease wreaking havoc against the team he helped lead to the NL Central title? Will the curse ever be lifted? Will there ever be a time where the Reds admit their folly in not bringing him back?
I hope so, but I doubt it.
-I wish I could tell you I was interested in the new Pete Rose reality show. I'm not. I wish I could tell you that it will help his chances with Major League Baseball. It won't. I wish I could tell you that it didn't reek of a desperate cash grab. It does.
I'm not a reality show guy, unless those reality shows are Hard Knocks or The Franchise, so it's not like I'll be avoiding it specifically because it stars The Hit King, but if Pete Rose still clings to the dream of being inducted in the Hall (something I desperately want for this city), shouldn't he be involving himself in the kind projects other, you know, Hall of Famers would be involving themselves in?
Somehow, I can't imagine guys like Ripken, Morgan, and Seaver going the way of the Kardashians, Octomom, or the Desperate Housewives.
-As a longtime, long-suffering, pain-enduring Knicks fan, I very rarely defend the decision-making of one of the worst-run franchises in sports.
But I will today. Just a little bit.
I will always look back on Linsanity with fondness, the same I do junior high school summer crushes. Both were fun, new, exciting, and neither were destined to last.
I would've liked it if Jeremy Lin was still with the Knicks. But a team that has often been so fiscally irresponsible finally showed some restraint. Potentially destroying their cap situation, blowing well past the luxury tax threshold, all for a guy who has a whopping 26 games of NBA experience was a gamble, and one I can understand the Knicks not making.
I think Jeremy Lin will have a quality NBA career, but there's still massive holes in his game. He's turnover prone, bad with his left hand, too much of a risk-taker defensively, and as phenomenal was he was carrying a deeply flawed Knicks team this winter, there was not much to suggest that he can make his teammates better. The offense in the midst of Linsanity fit his skills to a tee. Both the coach and the philosophy have since changed.
He's still a massive uncertainty. He's yet to play in a postseason game. His best performances were while players will still working back into shape post-lockout. And there were major questions about his inability to get along with the Knicks stars.
I obviously wouldn't have been dead-set against Lin returning to the Knicks, but what he would've cost combined with the financial ramifications of matching the Houston offer would've made bringing him back not worth the long-term risks for such a limited short-term reward.
And either way, no one in the East is beating Miami, anyway.
I loved Linsanity and how it energized as fan base that was bleeding for the Knicks to be relevant. But it always seemed to have an expiration date, and while that date came earlier than expected, I give the Knicks credit for finally being prudent in making what had to be such an agonizing decision.
-Short and sweet today. Back on the radio tomorrow at 3:04 on ESPN1530. Maybe we'll be allowed to have weekly chats again at some point. Here's a picture of a pathetic person....
