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.
She left you. You were hurt. You found someone else. She made you happier than the girl who left you did. Your life is a little better now, and you're excited about the possibilities.
So why still be mad at the girl who dumped you in the first place?
Carson Palmer did what all of us have done at some point. He assessed a relationship and decided to end it. Who reading this hasn't taken a good hard look at some sort of relationship they were in - with a spouse, a girlfriend, drinking buddy, employer, call-girl, sports team - and decided that they wanted out?
Relationships end all the time, often very poorly, and there are usually bad feelings that linger for a while and there's almost always some collateral damage. That could be friends, it could be coworkers, it could be children.
This happened with the former Bengals quarterback and his ex-employer. Almost two years ago, Carson did what thousands of fans were doing at almost the exact same time, he took a look at his relationship with the Bengals and decided he wanted it to end. Then he resorted to the only way he could end it.
"BUT MO, CARSON HAD A CONTRACT!"
So what? Pro sports teams have contracts with athletes all the time. They break them. And vice versa. Pro sports teams have implied contracts with communities all the time. They break them too.
We're a nation of broken contracts. The divorce rate in the US is at 50%, and many that stay married maintain a slampiece on the side. People hopscotch jobs and blow off commitments to employers on a regular basis. And sports fans are as fickle as ever, understandably so, bailing from teams at the first sign of failure, then jumping back on-board at the first sign of hope.
Why do we hold an underachieving quarterback to a different standard?
If you're reading this, there's a really good chance that at some point, you've examined your relationship with the Cincinnati Bengals and asked if you were getting out of it what you put into it. Maybe you gave up season tickets. Perhaps you picked a new team to root for. Maybe you just decided you weren't going to be as emotionally invested. Or there's a chance you just found something else better to do.
You're almost exactly like Carson Palmer.
Or there's a chance that at some point in your professional life, you've looked at your working conditions and decided you wanted out. Maybe you simply didn't like how your company treated its employees so you quit. Perhaps you found a better opportunity or a chance to make more dough and used whatever leverage you had to get what you wanted.
Again, you're almost exactly like Carson Palmer.
And maybe you had a long-running relationship that started to run its course and after awhile both of you started to think about life without the other. And maybe it took the other person to initiate the breakup, and maybe there were some really hard feelings along the way, with some finger-pointing and name-calling. There was hurt. There was anger. And there was uncertainty over the future.
But maybe the breakup ended up being for the best. Maybe you found someone else who made you excited about the next step all the while your overall quality of life took a turn for the better. You can look back at the good times you spent with the ex with fondness but your new focus is on what you have now and the things that you can do in your new relationship. You realize that despite the hurt, that you were done a favor when she decided to leave you.
Then you're almost exactly like the Cincinnati Bengals.
It's time to get over Carson Palmer.
