Boomer to Mets Player: Real Men Don't Miss Baseball Games for the Birth of their Babies!

I've heard a lot of stupid things in my day, but Boomer Esiason stating that Daniel Murphy, an infielder for the New York Mets, was wrong for taking paternity leave for the birth of his child seems to take the cake. He went so far as to suggest that Murphy's wife should have scheduled a c-section so Murphy wouldn't have to miss the first two games of the year. No, really. I can't even. I can't—but these memes sure can....more

Gallowayed: How I Ran, No Walked, No Ran My First Half-Marathon

When I was a freshman in high school, I went out for track. I hadn't actually run at all before I did it. It was sort of a lark. The first day of practice, the coach told us to run an easy mile. All the other girls headed out, talking to each other as they went. I followed along as best as I could, but never having run a mile before except for the Presidential Physical Fitness Tests, I thought I might die and ended up back at the track gasping for air, my lungs on fire. Then, as I would almost every single practice until the weather warmed up, I coughed until phlegm came up, thoroughly embarrassing myself. So I quite shocked myself on Saturday when I ran my first half-marathon. ...more

8 Tips to Survive Little League Season

It's spring and that means it's baseball season. I happen to have a love/hate relationship with the game of baseball. Which is kind of tricky because every spring and summer for the past 12 years my life has been consumed with this sport. My husband started my son out in t-ball when he was about four-years-old, and we have spent approximately 50 milllion hours at various baseball fields since then. And, my husband has been his team coach for most of that time. ...more
