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, 12/6/12
We interrupt another day of #ButchWatch to bring you J.R. Smith....
Go to the :26 mark of the video. Check out the couple sitting courtside on the left side of the video. I've seen couples bail on bar tabs in more time than it took for those two to say "we're getting the f--- out of here."
The Knicks are 13-4. As I type this, Butch Jones is probably standing in front of his pantry, patiently deciding which cereal to enjoy. He's still UC's football coach.
-While #ButchWatch went back and forth last night, I watched hoops. The Knicks and the Dayton Flyers, not against each other, because that would be a mismatch. Just like UD vs. the SEC. After beating Alabama last night, or should I say after Kevin Dillard beat Alabama last night, the Flyers have won six straight against SEC schools. And you know SEC Guy wants nothing to do with our football program.
The UD Flyers are 6-2. As I type this, Butch Jones is agonizing over whether he should put two packets of sweetener in his coffee or one.
-Ryan Ludwick and the Reds are apparently close to a deal. Ryan is going to benefit from a free agent market that has seen roughly 25 players sign for a combined $360,000,000. Presidential campaigns sit in awe of the way baseball teams are spending money. MLB contracts, always absurd, are reaching a new low, or high.
Jeff Keppinger, a nice player, but mostly a utility guy nonetheless, signed yesterday for $12 million. The night before Thanksgiving, Jonny Gomes signed a two-year/$10 million deal with the Red Sox. Jonny Gomes. The same guy Ryan Ludwick replaced here. Ten. Million. Dollars.
It's a good offseason to be Ryan Ludwick.
The Reds will overpay because they have to. Still needing a leadoff hitter, and still needing bench upgrades, what could plan B be if they decide to not spend the jack on Ludwick?
But if they do overpay Ryan Ludwick, what's left to spend?
It's a good winter to be a free agent. Not so sure it's a good winter to be the GM of a team with limited financial resources and with a reluctance to trade good, young, pitchers entering their primes.
As I type this, Butch Jones is in his car, deciding between listening Mike and Mike, Jim Scott, or a success manual on CD.
-The Bengals recent winning streak and the recent emergence of Mohamed Sanu was not coincidental. Neither were their winning ways and the new usefulness of Cedric Peerman. Neither is available right now. Sanu won't be until 2013. Neither might seem like major factors compared to weapons like AJ and BJGE, but you can't convince me that these two personnel losses combined won't be impactful.
As I type this, Butch Jones is at a four-way stop, trying to decide which driver has the right of way.
-I've had ex-girlfriends who were more decisive than Butch Jones.
I don't blame anyone who's on the verge of an important, life-altering decision taking their time. And Butch is right, what he decides to do affects dozens of families. I think the fact that he's genuinely torn (and I think he is) speaks to the kind of high-character guy he is.
And it also tells me that he and his people were paying close attention to what's been happening at both Tennessee and Louisville.
At the same time, the football futures of two schools hang in the balance. Whichever school Butch doesn't work for next year will be looking for a new coach, and there's a great chance that he'll come from another school. The reverberations of every coach's decision are felt at many institutions.
I guess you could look at this one of two ways. The fact that Butch has been acting on behalf of the University of Cincinnati in an official capacity the last two days could suggest that he's staying. At the same time, he's had to chances to public announce that he's staying and he's refused.
Meanwhile, I wouldn't be happy if I'm running the show at Colorado. We've made our offer, we're waiting for Butch, and he's appearing at press conferences, flying to Charlotte, visiting the Panthers, and dining at Cracker Barrel. (Mmmmm, Cracker Barrel.)
What I think should have happened is that UC should've told the coach to take his time making his decision, weigh every factor and every pro and con (there are many of each) to staying and leaving, but go away while you do.
I know, I know, they need a spokesperson for the football program at official Belk Bowl news conferences. Send someone else. Is it ideal? No. Is it totally logical? Of course not. But it makes more sense than creating awkward situations for the coach as he dodges questions he can't answer, the school who's trying to protect their best interests, and media members trying to do their jobs.
Oh, and it'd really give Butch time to mull this over.
Go away and come back when you're ready, or go away and lets us know that you're leaving. But this charade is part intelligence-insulting, part-uncomfortable, and fully-annoying for a number of interested parties.
As type this, Butch is set to fill his gas tank and really having a tough time choosing between the 87, the 89, and the 93 octane gas.
-This is how you encourage fans to donate coats. Well done, Kevin Love.
Speaking of coats, earlier this morning, Butch Jones spent a solid 45-minutes looking at his coat rack trying to decide if this was a winter coat, light jacket, or sweater kind of day.
-Mike Brown and Jerry Jones are buddies. I'd rather have Mike Brown than Jerry Jones. Give me the guy who does things then doesn't drive me nut with asinine explanations.
-If this was made in 1986, with WWF wrestlers from 1986, my nine year-old head would have exploded.
While you watched that, Butch Jones took 18 minutes in the Varsity Village parking lot at UC to determine whether he'd just pull his car in, or back it into a spot like 17 year-olds do.
-There was a fight in the West Virginia/Marshall game. It was not as big as the fracas that marred last year's UC/XU game, but I hope that each time these teams play the remainder of the season, viewers get to see it again.
-I'll have more later, including today's radio show on ESPN1530. Right now Butch Jones is deciding between Cincinnati and Colorado. If he hasn't made up his mind by 3:04 today, God help me. Here's Jay-Z and an old lady.
