Mo lives and breathes sports, it's kind of disturbing...
Bringing you everything Cincinnati Sports.
A lifelong Bengals fan. God help her.

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, 8/28/12
Who's life is it?
-Something amazing happened in Arizona last night...
What was amazing wasn't the win's importance for the Reds, though the 3-2 victory did keep the Cardinals from cutting the lead to five, put an end to the frothing at the mouth of a certain fraction of the fan base, and potentially gave a gassed team a but of a jump start.
What was most amazing wasn't the pitching performance of Bronson Arroyo, who continued his role, won his 11th game, and piled up his 90th victory as a Red. (Factoid I was unaware of until the Fox Sports broadcast learned me this last night: those 90 wins since 2006 leads the National League during that span)
What was most amazing wasn't the excellence of Brandon Phillips, his clutch RBI double or his masterful glove-work at second base. And it wasn't BP's postgame interview on Fox Sports where he accused Jim Day of having a mancrush and accused him of "not liking chocolate."
What was most amazing wasn't the bullpen work, much needed after recent struggles by Broxton and Marshall, both of whom had scoreless innings last night, setting up Aroldis Chapman, who usually is pretty damn amazing
What most amazing isn't the fact that there are people who still oppose replay in Major League Baseball. Even though without it, the Reds and Diamondbacks might still be playing.
What was most amazing was what happened in the left field seats during Bronson Arroyo's homer. Watch the replay and check out the guy in the brown shirt.
He doesn't move.
There is a ball screaming in his general direction, that hits a rail maybe six feet from him and remains completely motionless. He either either catatonic or such a grizzled veteran of foul balls and homers that he's totally nonplussed by a batted ball coming his way.
This is amazing.
I've been to a billion baseball games. I've picked up a home run ball and I've come close to a few foul balls, but the one thing that happened every time a ball came close was that the people the ball was traveling toward either freaked out, ducked for cover, started knocking people over, or basically just lost their minds.
Not this guy.
I've been to games where the ball doesn't even come close to people and yet they still do all these things, and yet this main demonstrated such poise, such indifference, in the face of both potential danger and the potential fleeting glory of nabbing a souvenir.
-Thank you, Tony LaRussa.
Brandon Phillips before the break hit .280 with a .750 OPS
Brandon Phillips after the break is hitting .327 with an .853 OPS
-This ain't good.
Kyle Cook has a significant foot injury. Joe Reedy goes in-depth about what this means...
....this is the worst possible injury at the worst possible time. If Whitworth was injured, you could see Collins stepping into the spot. At center, you have to do a ton of juggling which isn’t the best thing or go out and find someone. With Faine at least the latter option exists.
Faine, a former first-round pick, would provide a veteran presence and more important is someone who has worked in a Gruden offense. There is one caveat — according to Pro Football Focus he graded as the fourth-worst run blocking center. But Faine is the best possible option on the street right now and trying to take a gamble that something would develop in the waiver wire is a huge gamble.
Can the preseason end already?
40% of the projected starters on the offensive look to be done for the season. There's bad news about the secondary on what seems like a daily basis. The starting running back has been out since suffering an injury in the first pretend game. Carlos Dunlap is dealing with his third knee injury in three years.
I'm almost afraid to search for any news on my favorite football team.
-At least I'm not walking around with this...
-What do you do if you're Dusty Baker and Bryan Price in the postseason?
Let's say the Reds get homefield in the NLDS. This year, there's a quirk in the schedule that dictates that the team with homefield goes on the road for games one and two, then hosts games three through five.
What tough decision could this mean for the Reds? Cueto and Latos are locks to make the rotation. Arroyo is a safe bet, and since no pitcher not named "Bronson" has ever gone on three days rest, the Reds will probably use a fourth starter and I'll bet right now it'd be Homer Bailey.
Ordinarily, you'd start your ace (that's Johnny Cueto if you're new) in game one, meaning he'd pitch a potential game five, right? But given Bailey's home/road splits (5.58 at GABP/2.91 everywhere else) do they slide him up in the rotation and have him pitch on the road in a game two? If they win game one, it takes pressure off Homer. If they lose game one, at least they'll have Homer pitching somewhere other than GABP, with Latos, Arroyo, and Cueto behind him, all at home, softening the blow of a 2-0 deficit?
A little premature, but still, fun to think about.
-This is a big win for ESPN, but it's a big win for baseball. More eyeballs need access to the sport.
-The bad news: If you attend a Browns game this year, you'll get kicked out if you stand to cheer a home team touchdown. The good news: You won't be compelled to stand all that often this season.
-High school football in Michigan looks fun...
-Here's today's terrible idea of the day: A movement toward a 24-second shot clock in college hoops. Survey the landscape of college basketball point guard play and get back to me on whether this is a good idea.
-I love Springsteen, but these are creepy.
-More later, including today's radio show and a blow previewing it. From the University of Kentucky, here's the world's largest water balloon fight...
