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

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.
Most of us have to work. Those of us who are lucky have jobs that we enjoy, and some of us are fortunate to pursue life-long passions and fulfill dreams they had when they were younger. I include myself in that group.
And then there are people who do things for a living that allow them to escape from reality by throwing themselves into their work.
I don't know how many people are that lucky, but I am.
There were times this past year when one of the only things getting me out of bed in the morning was the chance to escape reality for a while and do radio shows, write blogs, or agitate people on Twitter. 2012 was a year where I often had to take refuge in what I was doing professionally to get away from what was going on personally.
I won't bore you with details, and I've emerged from this year a smarter, more mature (sorta), more thoughtful person, with new perspectives on life, family, friends, and the things that are truly important.
I'm grateful to have some incredible people in my life. I tested them as much as 2012 tested me.
And I'm thankful to have a job that's often helped me maintain sanity while providing enjoyment, even when life wasn't so enjoyable.
I wouldn't have it without people who listen to our radio show, read this blog, or follow me on Twitter.
People in our business don't say "thank you" enough, either to the folks they work with or to the audiences who make our jobs possible.
Today seems like an appropriate time for me to so.
During a difficult year, especially during the summer months, what often kept me going was being able to come to work and talk about the Reds, or make fun of something else happening in sports. What re-energized me during some tough times was being able to channel emotions into blog posts that at times probably only made sense to me. The blog took on a different feel this year, and while that wasn't entirely done on purpose, I can see when I look back that it occasionally reflected what was going on with me as I was working on it.
And there were times when goofing off on Twitter became a valuable, if often silly, distraction.
I couldn't do a radio show without listeners. I couldn't blog without readers. And it wouldn't be as much fun distracting myself without followers.
You may be one of those things. You may be all three. You may be a listener to checks in here and there, and you may be someone who sits through the entire show every day. You may think that my opinions reflect total idiocy, you might only read the blog to kill time sorting through the daily array of grammatical errors, and you might follow on Twitter just so you can laugh at my ignorance.
Either way, you're an audience, and we can't do our jobs without you.
And I'm not sure I could have made it through 2012 without you.
Thanks for giving me an audience.
Here's to a fun 2013.
And here's the only Christmas song that matters.
