Selwyn Duke at The American Thinker explains the misperception: The  confusion stems from the fact that Ye […]

Olympic Boob Shot? USA! USA! USA!

My prescient news judgment is vindicated: While guys were drooling over those lanky beach volleyball chicks — or even getting twisted thrills watching jailbait gymnasts, you sick freaks — who told you that women’s water polo is the sport to watch for real Rule 5 Olympic action? Now, via Deadspin and Mediaite, we learn that NBC briefly […]


U.S. water polo team members, including Melissa Seidemann (3rd from Left) I am immune to “Olympic fever.” I covered the Atlanta Olympics in ’96 and, as far as I’m concerned, the whole thing is just a bunch of made-for-TV commercialized hype. However . . . The United States defeated Hungary 14-13 today in women’s water polo. […]

Bikini + NASCAR = Traffic Gold!

Canadian beauty Maryeve Dufault will make her NASCAR debut Saturday in Quebec . . .  NASCAR in Quebec? Comment voulez-vous dire “redneck” en français? Never mind. The point is that I learned this after blog traffic spiked because there were a lot of Google searches that led to my July 28 post about Mlle. Dufault. Then I realized […]

Pig Skin In The Game

by Smitty The Blaze notes that even the overpaid prima donnas of the NFL managed to get their act together and finish negotiations. Unlike the clowns inside the flat bowl outlined by the beltway. <rant> Other than the effort to win re-election, these political football players don’t have enough skin in the game. I’d like […]

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Emerson, 10, Reagan, 8, and Jefferson, 12, at Municipal Stadium after Sunday’s Hagerstown Suns game. My wife’s boss had extra tickets to Sunday’s Hagerstown Suns game, and we took our three youngest kids to watch the Suns win 6-5 over the Greensboro Grasshoppers.
