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

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.
FIVE MO' THINGS, 1/11/13
1) Mike Zimmer is not going to Cleveland. Instead, Rob Chudzinski is. This is unfortunate for Mike, but a blessing for the Bengals. Mike is popular with his players, and the Browns have money to spend. While we want "Zim" to get a head coaching job, I'm guessing there's a chance some of his current players, many of whom have free agency in front of them, would want to follow him. They might still, but at least they'd be moving to a different division.
2) Joe Sunderman and Byron Larkin. I spent most of my evening in the car last night, listening to Xavier's season-saving (at least for now) win over Temple on 700WLW. If there are five better college basketball broadcast teams working, I'd like to hear them. They made a long night in the car go quickly.
3) Water. Can we get some for Semaj Christon? Maybe some Gatorade? Coupla IVs pregame?
4) NFL Divisional Playoff Picks. This is the best football weekend of the year. Unfortunately, only two of these games really do it for me, both in the NFC.
The Ravens' defense could play very well, and Peyton Manning will still put up 27-30 points. The Ravens offense could play very well and fail to score more than 14-17. Denver 28 Baltimore 17
I'm not picking Aaron Rodgers to lose to Colin Kaepernick, so I'm not picking the Packers to lose on the road. Never have I soured on one team so quickly as the 49ers, who looked incredible for 35 minutes against New England, and very pedestrian since. Green Bay 24 San Francisco 20
The game of the weekend will be in Atlanta, where both the Falcons and Seahawks have injuries to pass-rushers, and where the Falcons face significant pressure to finally win some games this postseason. It's hard to pick against the Seahawks right now, even though I probably will next week. They run it. They throw it. And they defend it. And next week's Green Bay/Seattle Replacement Refs Re-do will be fantastic. Seattle 27 Atlanta 24
The Texans won't get the beatdown they received in Foxboro a few weeks ago, but it's still hard to get the images of a them barely beating a Bengals team that played horribly on offense, at home, out of my head. Tom Brady's invincibility in the postseason, especially at home, is vastly overplayed. But he ain't losing to Matt Schaub. Get ready for Brady v. Manning again. New England 31 Houston 21
5) Jonah Keri on the fallacy of Baseball Hall of Fame voting. Thank you, Jonah. I could cut and paste the entire thing, but I won't, except for this that stood out, referencing the silly rule many writers adhere to in keeping players out of the Hall until after they've been on the ballot for a while...
There are no clauses anywhere on the BBWAA-issued ballot that instruct voters to consider how many times a given player has appeared on a ballot. Yet voters aggressively do this every year. Much of this traces back to the old yarn about Joe DiMaggio. If Joe D didn't get in on the first ballot, how can Curt Schilling or Craig Biggio receive such an honor? Of course, DiMaggio came up for vote at a time when the process was radically different, not at all comparable to the process we have today. Most of the time, this doesn't backfire in a disastrous way as it did with Ron Santo, who had Hall-worthy credentials but didn't get inducted until after his death. And the intent might not be as deliberately confrontational as a "no" vote against someone like Bonds. But the net effect is the same — let's make the guy wait and stew a bit before I deem him worthy of my blessed vote.
But Wait There's More.....
-Sammy Sosa's Pinterest page. I will admit, I don't really know what Pinterest is, other than the fact that my female coworkers who refuse to talk to me spend a lot of time on it. I do Twitter, Facebook, and this blog. I think that's enough. But Slammin' Sammy, who hit the hardest home run I've ever seen in person, has what might be the best Pinterest page ever, if you know, I had seen anyone else's Pinterest page.
-The miserable two-hour-plus experience that was the UK/Vandy game last night. Bad play, awful officiating, a confused Bobby Knight, and an ugly Kentucky win that came way harder than it should have. And no, Nerlens Noel did not beat the shot clock. I don't know how UK's season is going to end, but I do know that if the Wildcats end up making any kind of run, the game last night will one that much time is devoted to on the year-end DVD.
-Knicks v. Pacers. Fractured team + no Carmelo + elite defensive opposition = 2,381 f-bombs yelled at my house last night.
-Large kid makes ridiculous shot. Maybe Titus Rubles should try it like this.
-UC's defense. For all the talk of running more, scoring more, and being more aesthetically pleasing, the Bearcats were, and are, still going to win games because they stop people. That's been the blueprint each of the last two seasons, with a lot of the guys currently on the roster, and it's going to be the blueprint this season too. It's not the say that they don't need to address the offense, but this team is still going to go as far as its defense will take them, which I think is still pretty far.
-Oscar Nominations. Maybe I'm old. Maybe my attention span is getting shorter. Maybe I just have other interests. Either way, I've never been less inclined to sit in a movie theater for two hours.
-Lessons on how to kill a chocolate bunny.
-Radio today and Sunday. Today will be our first Friday show since August, and an attempt to lighten things up a but as we head into the weekend. On Sunday, I get a chance to fulfill a dream of sorts, as I host SportsCenter Sunday on ESPNRadio this Sunday from 5:00pm until 9:00. We won't carry much of it locally since we have NFL Playoff games, but the last hour should air on ESPN1530, and it's available at ESPNRadio.com. I could be all cool and tell you that I'm not dealing with a mixture of excitement and terror. Hopefully, I'll be more prepared than this guy....
