Surprised By Mark McGwire's Steroid Admission? Not Me.

When Mark McGwire announced last week that he lied to the grand jury and he had used steroids while playing professional baseball my first thought was "This is news? Didn't we already know this?" I suppose the answer is no, some people actually believed McGwire when he swore he was clean.Although I can't imagine how that happened....more

The NFL Playoffs: Wild Card Weekend and Beyond

On Friday I went public. I made my picks for the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs. In fact, I vlogged my picks. I picked Green Bay, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Cincinnati. If you watched any of the games (or even looked at the scores this morning) you know that I was 1 for 4. That isn't very good. If I were a betting woman I would be a very poor betting woman. If I were a betting woman there would be loan sharks after me. ...more

I think it would be nice to see New Orleans win one for a change. They played like super ...more

Kate Moss, Shut Up. I'm Trying to Raise a Daughter Here.

Recently Kate Moss told interviewer Brid Costello that one of her mottos is "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." My first reaction was to recite that to myself 800 times a day and see if it worked. I've been having a lot of trouble getting motivated to lose weight in the last couple of years. ...more

Clearly what Kate Moss is telling us is how good she is at controlling what goes into her mouth. ...more

On The Pregnant Teen Athlete Who Wasn't Allowed to Play Volleyball Controversy

When Mackenzie McCollum was told she couldn't play volleyball at school anymore until she had a doctor's note she was upset for several reasons. First of all, she wasn't telling many people she was pregnant, the mother of a teammate called the coach and informed him. Mackenzie is only 17 years old and a senior in high school. She was also upset that the coach told the whole team that she was pregnant while discussing who would be the starting center in Mackenzie's absence. It gets even trickier. ...more


Not that I agree with that in any way, but if that was in the written rules for ...more

That is a great idea.

I am shocked at how much exercise I get doing the Tae Kwon ...more

If the NBA took the very best female players then it changes everything....more
