In Honor of FC Cincinnati’s Big Day

Unfortantely, I wasn’t able to attend any of the rally/party events in the city today to cheer the announcement that Cincinnati’s amazing pro soccer club, FC Cincinnati, will begin playing in the MLS in 2019. Mostly that’s because I’m old and lame and have too many things to do to be playing hookey on a […]

Green As The Fairway We Didn’t Play

The alumni association for the high school I attended (and a significant fraction of my family dedicated their lives to) held a golf outing today. Despite years of evidence supporting the theory that I should never be allowed to swing a golf club, I played in a foursome with my dad and two brothers. Believe […]

Lizards and Lacrosse, oh my!

I got a chance to get out and bask in the sun for a bit today during my son’s lacrosse game. Accordingly, I figured it’d be a good time to let the lizards on today’s socks bask on the bleachers a little bit themselves. We all enjoyed a dose of vitamin D and my son […]

And This One Belongs To The Reds

Was it actually Opening Day today? No, but it was the first Monday in April, and for the 45 years that I’ve hurtled around the sun, that’s when the Cincinnati Reds have started their baseball season. This pair of socks are to honor that history and tradition, even if baseball around here did theoretically start […]

Belated Blog Posting

I fell asleep early last night, halfway through the Rock’s Jumanji, and totally forgot to post yesterday’s socks. These are them, in all their multi-colored, diamond shaped glory. Now, I could have worn red socks yesterday, because it was Opening Day for the Reds, but as far as I’m concerned, Reds’ Opening Day is always […]

Thoughts About That Bengals Game

I’ve been a Cincinnati Bengals fans since I was 8 years old. I’m almost 43 now, which means I’ve been WhoDey!-ing those orange and black stripes for something like 35 years. My fandom started, not surprisingly, in 1981. When the local team goes to the Super Bowl, it tends to have that effect on a […]

A Haiku For The Bengals Playoff Berth

So much determined Such regular season win! Bring it, damn Steelers.

The Best Monday Of The Year (or Revisiting The Start Of The 2015 NCAA Tournament)

Yeah, you heard me right: yesterday was the best Monday of the year. Ordinarily, I’d argue that suggesting any one particular Monday could possible trump it’s 51 brethren was crazy talk on the highest order. Like, seriously, you’d be better off taking stock tips from the “magic” fortune teller that made Tom Hanks Big. It’s […]

Five Things For The Monday After

I would be remiss in not mentioning that the After in question above is clearly a reference to yesterday’s Super Bowl, which is arguably the single biggest TV-watching holiday on the American calendar.  Honestly, I think someone should probably just have the NFL file as a religious organization so we can recognize Super Bowl Sunday […]

Tuesday Evening Baseball

The Oldest Son is theoretically going to play a baseball game in half an hour or so. Beneath this sky, I’m pretty dubious that it’s going to actually happen. The odds, however, of me making a mad dash for the car among a pack of other scurrying, middle-aged parents sometime in the ensuing hour is […]
