A couple of weeks ago, I attended ESPN’s Media Day in Bristol, CT, to tour the facility and to meet the personnel and anchors of the “mothership”.

It’s the MOST. WONDERFUL. TIIIIIIIIMMME of the year! College football season is underway, and I’m pulling out the orange and blue as I chomp clap for my Florida Gators!

As a woman who indulges in sports heavily, I’m extremely grateful for ESPN doing the Nine for IX series. It puts women in sports on a platform that no other network has taken the chance on. Far too many times, we as women are told we aren’t, “in our place” when we express our... August 26th, 2013 | Et cetera, Films and Docs, The NFL Chick | Read More
NBA Fashion Fever moved to the media world? No bueno! By now we’ve all seen Dwyane Wade’s notorious “European style” suits he’s been wearing to the arenas (which, by the way, is still NOT cool by us Americans), but now it’s become infectious. Mike and Mike’s Mike Greenberg said... May 17th, 2013 | Basketball, The NFL Chick | Read More

Week 2 is underway and the NFL looks like it picked up where it left off. The Packers defeated the Bears last night, as the Bears offensive line still have issues and Jay Cutler still throws with his back foot. This upcoming weekend if filled with good matchups.

September means the end of summer, back to school and the beginning of NFL season. Every year, NFL experts and analysts like to give their predictions on how teams will fare for the upcoming season. It’s only right that I chime in and do the same since, in my mind, I’m an expert anyway (more... September 5th, 2012 | Football, The NFL Chick | Read More
The 2012 NFL Draft has come and gone, but not before I documented my journey as I took part in last week’s big events in New York City. Being an NFL fan is easy and fun, but being an NFL blogger means event after event after event. I wouldn’t trade it for the world, so to give folks insight...

For our final installment of the NFL Draft Diaries, I decided to interview an up-and-coming star with fresh memories on his draft day experience. WR Torrey Smith went through his process just barely one year ago, waiting to become one of the next big playmakers for the Baltimore Ravens.

For part two of our NFL Draft Diaries, I decided to speak with a seasoned NFL veteran who’s still playing in the league. Texans OL Wade Smith was more than willing to share his draft-day experience.

Dear Joe “Cool” Flacco,
Let me start by saying I’m one of your biggest supporters. When the Ravens drafted you with the 18th overall pick in 2008, I was elated. I felt like Baltimore finally had the general they needed to fit their style of play. And for a while, you proved me right.... January 19th, 2012 | Football, The NFL Chick | Read More
