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.
1) New postseason uniforms for UC.
While I am a uniform nerd, I care a lot more about how the Bearcats play in March than how they look. And last year, they won four postseason games despite wearing some pretty ugly threads, so I'll gripe less about the unis if UC wins some games.
But these are awful. And the awfulness isn't exclusive to Cincinnati.
At least the Bearcats won't be wearing sleeves. Sleeves do not belong on a basketball jersey. But still, these are hideous. The saving grace, if there is one, is that the ugly Zubaz-like design on the shorts isn't also on the jersey, but these are still awful.
The best uniforms in sports (Colts, the current Knicks home look, the Yankees, Penn State to name a few favorites) are great because they are simple and understated. The uniforms from Adidas are as simple as a car full of divorced women. I feel or the players, who are going to be mocked by their opponents, and I feel for me, who is going to have to endure crap from every fan of every other team in the country.
Who is in charge at Adidas? And what's the minimum requirement to design uniforms? Passing a third grade art class? Remedial fashion design classes at an on-line college?
Here's what bothers me the most: Not long ago, UC basketball had the best uniforms in the sport. I've never been a fan of the unis since Adidas took over in 2006, but they accompanying gear was always slick-looking and the uniforms have always at least been inoffensive. These are more offensive than an uncensored Family Guy episode. Where once my favorite basketball team had the slickest-looking unis in the game, now they'll take the floor in March looking like they went through the dumpster outside of a clown school.
2) Aroldis Chapman pitches today, which means there will be something actually sorta newsy, even if today's appearance by The Missile is more like a relief appearance than a start. The process begins today. I hope it ends, at least for this year, in October.
I've said all along that my preference would be that Chapman remain as the team's closer, because I'm a bigger fan of know quantities than unknowns, but there really is no wrong answer. The Reds are taking a guy with Chapman's arm and adding him to the backbone of the team. There could be worse things.
One thing I hear though is "well, if he flops as a starter, just make him closer again."
Fine. And I agree, but when do we determine that he's flopped? After a few starts? Midway through the season? In spring training? Next season? When is the cutoff? There's a ton of variables that could help determine this, like the health and effectiveness of the starting rotation, the health and effectiveness of the relievers, how good the team is, etc. But when do we determine that he's a flop, if indeed he is a flop?
3) Awkward moments in broadcasting. I have more than my fair share. Last night was a great night of hoops, from Steph Curry's awesome 54-point show against the Knicks (who won with Tyson Chandler grabbing 28 points while I yelled at the TV for the Knicks to punch Curry in the face when he rose up to shoot), to Monta Ellis' incredible buzzer-beater to give the Bucks win over the Rockets, to a great Denver/Portland game, to the incredible UConn/Georgetown tilt, but the award for most bizarre moment of the night goes to the Wizards broadcast crew. To be fair, it appears that this game-ending shot from last night's Wizards/Pistons game goes through the net at first glance. Many of the fans (the Wizards have fans?) react as if they thought the shot went in. It didn't. Then it got weird.
5) UC Watch Party at the Holy Grail Monday. If the game sucks we'll just talk about uniforms.
