    I have to admit before I even get into this post that I have a smidgen of bias against the team I’m talking about today. All writers have bias, and that’s fine! It’s just helpful to acknowledge that u...

    In case anyone is considering starting a blog, I highly recommend you not do so immediately prior to your coworker going on maternity leave. To say work has been exhausting over the last two months wo...
  • A Hot-Mess Aaron Rodgers Rant
    04 Nov 2021 • 4 min read
    I am irrationally angry with Aaron Rodgers. Like, really angry and disappointed. I’m also PMS-ing, which I’m sure has absolutely nothing to do with the anger I am feeling towards a quarterback who doe...
  • A Texans-Sized Problem
    03 Nov 2021 • 5 min read
    If I am being honest, the NFL trade deadline doesn’t get me all excited and hot and bothered like the MLB trade deadline does. In baseball, you frequently see big stars going from team to team and you...

    I’ve had about 24 hours now to digest the absolute mediocrity that was on display Tuesday night in Boston and I am more nonchalant about theYankees 6-2 loss than anticipated. Perhaps it was the egg th...
