Just When I Thought I Was Out

I’ve been trying to quit Tae Kwon Do for about a month now. I signed up for Tae Kwon Do back in December. I was taking with my kids and it was fun… ish, but then it turned out that even though I was in a class with my kids we were learning different things. […]

Lindsey Vonn, Sports Illustrated and Objectification

Last week skier Lindsey Vonn was in the news because some jerk in the media suggested that Vonn would have an advantage in the downhill events because she was carrying extra weight, so I was pleased when I saw this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated because I thought Vonn looked terrific.

White Belt

You will never guess what I did. I signed up for Tae Kwon Do. Well, I was tricked into signing up for Tae Kwon Do. Let me back up a little bit. My five year old son has been dying to take Tae Kwon Do ever since he found out that his best friend at […]

The Ray Lewis Carrot Cake

My sister-in-law is getting married in September. She has done me the distinct honor of asking me to be her matron of honor. It is in this capacity (and also due to the fact that we only live about 20 minutes apart form each other) I get to do awesome things like getting to taste […]

Don’t let anybody tell you that lady bloggers don’t care about hockey. I was not even the most interested […]

The Importance of Being a Woman Sports Blogger

Megan from Women Talk Sports and …Because I Played Sports interviews ESPN’s Nancy Lieberman at the WNBA Pre-Draft Event. … and I filmed it. I apologize for the shakiness in the beginning. Nancy Lieberman is my new hero. Actually, I met a lot of new people to look up to at the WNBA Draft. The […]

It is Over Near My Icebox

How I know I am getting old – I just referred to the “Soviet” Olympic basketball team as if it existed last year. The Soviet Union was dissolved 19 years ago. *sigh* (You get this because Twitter is over capacity.)
