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, 1/16/13
1) Cashmere Wright's knee. The collective gasp by Bearcat fans last night was probably heard in Chicago. (I will spare you my R-rated reaction) I'll breathe a sigh of relief when I see Cash playing in a basketball game, which hopefully will be Saturday. (Right now, it's being called a "knee sprain" and Cash's status is, like my employment, day to day) Wright's value to the Bearcats can't be understated. He might not be their best player, but he's their most valuable, as evidenced by his standout play in what have been otherwise sloppy UC performances. But more than any potential injury's impact on the basketball team, my immediate thoughts were with Cash, a guy who's had injuries make us wonder exactly how good he could've been if completely healthy, and guy wrapping up a very, very good Bearcat career. I'm happy for Cash that his career will apparently continue.
2) Last night's UC win. OK, DePaul isn't very good, though I actually think they're better than the metrics would indicate, and their coaching last night was beyond atrocious. The Blue Demons began the game by running, pressing, and creating a frenetic pace, something that worked to their advantage early (and something UC should've embraced from the tip), the late in the game, trailing by 8-11 points, with UC's only real point guard on the bench, Oliver Purnell decided to slow it down, ostensibly playing to stay within striking range so his team could make a run in the third half, I guess.
But the Bearcats needed to win that game, more to avoid their first really damaging loss of the season, and given how the game played out, any win on the road where you play large stretches without your most important player is a good one.
As for how the game ended, with UC handling DePaul's pressure poorly while allowing them (kinda) back in the game: If Cash is ok, it doesn't matter. The Blue Demon run was like a team putting up a five-spot against a mop-up guy in the ninth inning when trailing by eight runs. UC didn't have their closer in the game. If Cashmere Wright is healthy, they'll close out games like last night's. If he's not, they'll rarely be in position to close them out anyway.
3) The NFL: A Bad Lip Reading.
4) Nerlens Noel. Kentucky is going to make the NCAA Tournament. The "They're a bubble team," and "Wouldn't it be amazing if UK actually missed the dance" and "Ha. UK might have the play in Dayton," overstatements are a little premature. No, they don't blow people out. No, they lack quality wins right now. And fans might have to embrace them winning ugly, as they did last night over Tennessee, but throw at me whatever bracket-geek numbers you want, the committee is not going to keep a Wildcat team with 21-10, 13-5 regular season out of the tournament. That'll be their record heading into SEC Tournament play if they finish 10-5, which they're still completely capable of doing, which they are because of Noel.
Early in the season, he looked like a guy too used to being the biggest kid on the floor, and his game is very, very, very far from refined. But he does everything. Last night, he didn't lead the team in scoring, and he didn't make the bigger shots down the stretch, but he did everything else. He finished with a line of 12/9/6/4, coming alive offensively in the second half, all the while defending three different positions, altering shots, playing great help defense, diving on the floor, and assisting in the trombone section during timeouts.
His teammates may still have to adopt the hard-hat mentality the Wildcats will need to shut the bracketologists up, and some fans might have to fall in line as well, but at least the Wildcats have someone setting the tone they can fill in line behind.
5) Scott Rolen. The Dodgers might be making a run at him. If he can go somewhere where a team might be willing to give him more playing time, more power to him.
I'll be making a run at hosting a radio show this afternoon on ESPN1530. It will start at 3:04. A rundown will be forthcoming.
