MO' Favorite Links
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, 11/1/12
-Programming Notes: I'm doing this week's chat tomorrow at 1:00. Take a long lunch.
-Ryan Ludwick is a free agent. I can't blame him for wanting to hit the open market. If some team wants to sign a player who's had one good season out of the last three, and who's in his mid-30s, to an absurd contract, I wish both that team and Ryan Ludwick well. I'd like for Ryan to be a Red in 2012, but I wouldn't go overboard to keep him.
-On the David Wright story from yesterday....yes, the idea of Wright offering protecting J. Votto setting up J. Bruce is enticing. But given what he'd cost, both in terms of players and dollars, is it worth asking if David Wright - not a huge power guy even with the CitiField fences moved in - is that much of an upgrade to justify what the Reds would have to give up to get him, and then what they'd have to pay to keep him?
The idea of trading for David Wright reminds me of those people who take cars that have important defects and throw money into crap like expensive sound systems and rims while ignoring the engine and never changing the oil. They're nice to have but they're not where the money should go.
If it takes three or four people to trade for David Wright, what's leftover to go find a center fielder?
-One theme I keep hearing: they Reds need to find someone to replace Scott Rolen as the team's designated "great clubhouse guy."
The Reds strike me as a team filled with great clubhouse guys. I'm sure Scott was one of them, but they're chemistry can't solely be attributed to the part-time presence of one broken-down guy.
The need for a leader is also overstated. This isn't the 2009 or 2010 teams, squads filled with players in the early stages of their careers. Joey Votto is 29 years-old, and the team just invested a quarter of a billion dollars in him. He should lead. Same with BP. Arroyo and Hanigan look like leaders. Bruce might get there soon.
They need better players at important positions. They don't need broken down players taking up space simply because of whatever intangibles they bring to the clubhouse.
-The Bengals do need leaders, at least according to Marvin Lewis. I agree with the sentiment, and I love what it might do for the team.
Mind you, I think I have a better chance of impregnating Kate Upton than the Bengals do of beating Denver, but this team has, for weeks, looked like it's needed an injection of energy, something to jolt them.
Whatever Marv's doing behind the scenes hasn't done the trick. Why not use the media to not only send a message, but infuse the team with a little something extra?
-As the college basketball season gets set to begin, two reminders based on early feedback.
1) I am going to talk about the teams I feel large chunks of our audience cares about. You might not like the team I'm talking about. My job isn't to talk about one team because I might be a fan of it, and my job isn't to talk solely about the teams within the borders of our city. If I felt like large chunks of our audience cared about the basketball team at Montana State, I would spend time talking about them.
2) If you want topics geared toward your favorite team, introduce them. Don't Tweet "talk about UK." That's not a topic. Tweet "What were your thoughts on UK's win last night? Is Cal not using (fill in the blank player) enough." And call the station. I react to what I get. Audience response dictates topics. Silence gets me to switch gears.
Thank you. I'm mildly excited for the season.
-I think we are nearing a day when I turn on the radio and hear a commercial advocating the assassination of a political candidate. I'm not kidding about this, sadly.
-The NHL lockout will be the least-impactful major sports work stoppage in my lifetime. There's not enough casual fans to turn off, and the sport's diehards will have nowhere else to turn. That said, I hate what the league is doing to it's fans. At the same time, I did enjoy these lockout-themed Halloween costumes.
I like this one as well....
-I'm with ya, kid.
