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, 11/27/12
I addressed a simple question on the blog last night: "Are the Bengals for real."
My answer depended on the definition of "for real."
If "for real," you're talking about championship-caliber, the answer is no. If "for real" means that the Bengals can consistently beat the elite-level teams in the league, then the answer is no. If "for real" means that they're a legit playoff team, the answer is yes.
Maybe you disagree, and according to Twitter, many of you did. That's okay. It's a subjective question. But if they're not "for real" it's not because after all, they're the Bengals.
I've heard that a lot the last few days. "They are, after all, the Bengals." We know what the franchise's history is, and yes, it's created a jaded cynicism that I can be guilty of. But it's blatantly unfair to hold the history of previous teams against this one. It's a different team. More important, it looks like a different type of team.
The favorable schedule helps. The next three are winnable. In fact, the way the Bengals are playing, I'd argue the next three games should be won. I could be all scientific and run through a bunch of stats or make sure I satiated everyone's need to see their favorite player mentioned by droning on about how so many players are playing well at so many different positions, but I'll spare you.
The point is that the Bengals are playing very well right now, as well as they have in a long time. And for the next three weeks at least, the competition isn't exactly taking a turn for the better.
Will they beat Pittsburgh at Heinz Field? Not sure I'd pick the orange and black quite yet. Can the win against the Ravens in week 17? Again, not so sure. But given the way the Bengals are trending, and given the issues surrounding the Steelers right now and what the Ravens might have sewn up by the time the season's final game rolls around, I'm not exactly chalking them up as losses either.
The Bengals are, right now, in a four-team race for two spots. Tiebreakers being what they are, history being what it is, the way this team is playing, and who they playing against these next three weeks indicate that while they may or may not be "for real," they postseason hopes most definitely are.
-"So what, Mo. They're just going to lose in the first round anyway."
If that tempers your enthusiasm, fine. I get it. The Bengals would probably be stiff underdogs against any of the probable AFC division winners. And I don't thinkI would pick them. But you can't finally get that breakthrough postseason win if you don't indeed make the postseason. And I don't see any downside to continuing to play measuring stick games against the best competition in the league.
Even if the Bengals do lose early.
Let's get there first.
-Brian Kelly will be coaching the national championship game. This rankles some UC fans. (You've just read my first-ever use of the word "rankles.") Not me. I kinda like the fact that one of the most significant figures in Bearcat football history has a chance to win a championship. And I think it's kinda cool that "University of Cincinnati" will probably me mouthed by the announcers a few times during the BCS title game broadcast.
-Butch Jones might leave. Or he might stay. My question: Is there really anything wrong with being knows as a place that helps coaches get to where they want to?
-Jonathan Broxton and the Reds are close to a deal. The domino effect is that Aroldis Chapman would probably move into the rotation. I'm sorta tired of this topic, but it is a great topic because there's really no wrong answer. I lean toward him remaining a reliever, but are there worse things than taking one of the game's most dominant pitchers and moving him into an already high-quality rotation? And are there worse things than having to resort to him closing if it doesn't work?
-Here's what will become a weekly plea for you to stalk me.
Deep down inside, I am a 14 year-old girl.
-Pole dancing for charity? Pole dancing for charity.
-I'll do a radio show for charity today. The name of the charity will be "Clear Channel Media and Entertainment." It starts at 3:04 on ESPN1530. A rundown comes later. Here's a dancing hockey mascot.
