Babe of the Week: Maria Marino

The Babes love nothing more than a fellow Babe (and fellow New Jerseyan, sorry not sorry) who has worked hard to pave a way for herself in a male-dominated industry. We all know this shit is not easy, especially when the media only spends roughly 5% of their coverage on women’s sports. But that’s why we’re happy to have Maria Marino getting out there and … Continue reading Babe of the Week: Maria Marino

Babe of the Week: Paige Bueckers

Winning an ESPY is pretty cool, but Babe of the Week? Yeah, big week for Paige Bueckers. Paige took home the award for Best College Athlete (Women’s Sports) this past week at the ESPYs, and it was more than deserved. Paige is a stellar basketball player at UConn. Upon researching the young star’s career highlights, I got overwhelmed because she is that special of a … Continue reading Babe of the Week: Paige Bueckers

Robin Arzon’s return to Peloton

I didn’t relinquish being an athlete when I became pregnant. – Robin Arzon There’s nothing I love more than a woman doing whatever the hell she wants, and Peloton’s head instructor Robin Arzon is a superhero.

Babe of the Week: Oct 20

If you’re a Philadelphia sports fan, you know this week’s Babe: Lauren Hart. She’s best known for singing National Anthem at Flyers home games since 1997, following in the footsteps of her father, Gene Hart, “The Voice of the Flyers” for nearly 30 years. It was just after his death that she dedicated her time to continuing his tradition. The Anthemist: an interesting and often … Continue reading Babe of the Week: Oct 20

OPINION: There’s nothing competitive about a coin toss

The NFL overtime rules have long been under scrutiny, undergoing a few major changes in recent years. And while the NFL has certainly taken steps in improving the overtime format, I’m still not on board. In 2012, the NFL adjusted the rules so the team with first possession in overtime could no longer win the game on a field goal. If they kick a 3-pointer, the other team gets a chance to … Continue reading OPINION: There’s nothing competitive about a coin toss

Babe(s) of the Week: Oct 13

Our first Babe of the Week is a special one. You can find them robbing fans of line drives on the baselines at Dodger Stadium. Amy Moore and Christina Zambrana, both former college softball players and current ballgirls for the Los Angeles Dodgers, are flat out studs. (Confession: I once got a little tipsy at a Dodgers game and very obnoxiously cheered on the ballgirls … Continue reading Babe(s) of the Week: Oct 13

One Sentence Postseason Roundup: 10/6/17

    The reason the Nationals are NL East champs is because they are in a terrible division and are just not a team to be afraid of. Sorry, Bryce. The Yankees are lucky they made it to the postseason a year early. Clayton Kershaw doesn’t have great postseason numbers and probably can’t take the Dodgers all the way to the World Series. The Astros are … Continue reading One Sentence Postseason Roundup: 10/6/17
