Triathlons: They're not just for "Big Kids" anymore.

Need inspiration?
Earlier today, my husband and I witnessed what was arguably one of the most awesome things in a long time–a triathlon that will stay close to my heart for quite some time. Which is saying a lot considering how involved we are in the sport. In the wee hours of the morning, we headed down... Read more »

Sweet 16: Where To Watch the Games

Stop. Jimmer time! You might be hard pressed to find a bar full of BYU alum tossing back round after round, so your best bet is to hit up a place with a stupid amount of TV's like Joe's on Weed Street. Or perhaps your friendly neighborhood Mormon temple. Photo by Globe and Mail.
Well, we now have less than 1/4 of the field that we started with…which can only mean one thing. IT’S SWEET 16 TIME IN THE NCAA TOURNEY! And if you’re anything like me, you’re dying to watch the game with “Your People.” Or, in my case, my fellow Jayhawks. There’s nothing like tossing a few... Read more »

Super Bowl Super Crimes

In 2008 the man behind the mascot, Kenneth Hahey, 24, was charged with a DUI after a routine stop. His blood alcohol level was well over the legal limit at .166. Clearly, Hahey was out of a job, but the Steely McBeam legend lives on.
Yesterday I read a rather alarming stat…since entering the NFL, nearly 35% of all players in the league have been arrested, as noted in the book Boys Gone Wild, by Professor of Sociology Eric Carter. But don’t go looking at it thinking you’re going to find a gaggle of half-naked hot co-ed men on spring... Read more »

Disgruntled thoughts from the Bears game

The initial sting of the Bear’s loss has finally worn off and after a bit of reflection, I have a few random musings I’d like to toss out into the universe… 1. When your quarterback breaks his vagina…tell him to take some Midol and man up. [Side note, I do hope it isn’t an MCL... Read more »
