Sundays are the day of the week I’m most likely to watch a sporting event, whether that be football in the fall and winter or baseball once spring has come. Sometimes I ever watch soccer with the oldest son on Sunday mornings. Of course we aren’t doing any of that now, since there aren’t any … Continue reading Socks for Social Distancing, Day 37
Okay, look, it’s been 40 days and 40 nights...
Here’s to looking forward to the day, hopefully not too far off in the future, when we’ll actually get to hear the ump call out, “Play ball!”
When I put today's socks on this morning, in knew one of two things would happen. Either my Bengals would rise to the occasion (for once) and make it a game against the Saints -- who many are saying are the best team in the NFL -- or, more likely, considering the state of their … Continue reading Sports Are The Best Punishment
Blue socks, orange stripes...

Now, the Puddinette will not favor this picture, because she prefers when they look more "natural", meaning "at comfortable rest" rather than "looking like I just shoved my feet out in front of me … Continue reading You Gotta Represent, Especially If You Can’t Ball
Are you getting sick of football-related socks yet? I figured probably so, but that I might as well wear these today, since it's the first Monday night of a brand new season of Monday Night Football. Truth be told, I wanted to wear them to kick off Sports Week, which may or may not end … Continue reading One More Pair, For The Gipper
For more than 90% of the fans around The League, things didn't really get started until today. As such, I was clearly obligated to wear socks appropriate for the Bengals' first game of the year. If I'm being honest, I probably should have gotten a better pair to rep the team. This pattern of footballs … Continue reading Showing My Stripes (Without Any)
