THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS ARE THE NICKLEBACK OF BASEBALL; CANADA IS THE ALANIS MORRISETTE OF COUNTRIES; AND BOTH CAN FLING THEIR BATS AND TRASH STRAIGHT TO HELL, EH?

About That Guaranteed Rangers Win …

Jeff Prince
The guaranteed Texas Rangers victory predicted in yesterday’s Blotch post was made in earnest. I did not know the baseball gods were about to turn their wrath knobs to 10 in the final game of the AL Division Series. How c...


RUE, BEFORE A SPEAR WAS THROWN THROUGH HER GUT. SHE'S DEAD NOW.

Off Asides: Dallas Cowboys vs New England Patriots, Pits Of Hell

Jeff Prince
The Orange Smush era has resulted in two straight Cowboys losses. (I’m still formulating a suitable Brandon Weeden nickname. Maybe today’s crucial game will reveal the perfect moniker. ) To call today’s game “crucia...

Greg Hardy, Jerry Jones Should Shut Up for a While

Kristian Lin
Just ahead of the Dallas Cowboys welcoming the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to town, defensive lineman Greg Hardy came back from his suspension with an interview that could charitably be called tone-deaf. The man co...


SATURDAY NIGHT'S GIFT FROM A FRIEND TURNED INTO SUNDAY'S INABILITY TO STAY AWAKE FOR THE COWBOYS GAME.

Off Asides: Dallas Cowboys vs New Orleans Saints, Tequila

Jeff Prince
This edition of Off Asides will be short because Saturday’s bottle of tequila was tall. My buddy, Blue, dropped by after a visit to Mexico bearing a gift that we proceeded to consume over the course of the evening. Now it’s...

North Texas Gets Soccer Hall of Fame

Kristian Lin
Some semi-local soccer news has dropped, as the National Soccer Hall of Fame is officially moving to Frisco. The institution was founded in 1979 and found an official home in Oneonta, N.Y. in 1999, but it shut down in 2010 due ...


BRANDON "WTF" WEEDEN HAD A ROUGH DAY, BUT BY THE END OF THE GAME HE'D LEARNED A VALUABLE LESSON ABOUT LIFE.

Off Asides on Dallas Cowboys vs Falcons, Nicknames

Jeff Prince
Sunday morning, two hours before the Dallas Cowboys play, and I’m all jazzed up about seeing Brandon “The Ginger Cringer” Weeden take the reins. The team’s two biggest guns, Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, are...



USA victory

Women’s World Cup Update (The I Believe That We Have Won Edition)

Kristian Lin
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Team USA won the Women’s World Cup last night, smashing Japan 5-2. Carli Lloyd scored three goals, won the Golden Ball trophy (the tournament’s MVP award), and generally looked like Messi,...


Cameroon's Gaelle Enganamouit and her lovely locks.

The Women’s World Cup All-Hair Team

Kristian Lin
Great news on the hair front. Four years ago, the players at the Women’s World Cup were mostly wearing their hair short or in sensible ponytails. Despite some nice individual efforts, I didn’t have enough people to ...



Sandra Betschart is one of the linchpins of this all-star team.

The Women’s World Cup All-Hot Team

Kristian Lin
Lots of other media outlets have done similar posts running down the most attractive players at this year’s Women’s World Cup, but as I looked them over, something bothered me. The women were all white! Sure, some o...

Women’s World Cup Update (The Wide Left Edition)

Kristian Lin
So, the Germany vs. USA semifinal wound up playing out like the plot of Pitch Perfect 2, with the Americans patching up their earlier problems with cohesion and putting together a great performance to defeat a scary-looking, tr...
