Staci Who?

It’s true, I’ve been a poor blogger, due to an insanely busy last few months, what with graduation and starting a real job. But that doesn’t mean the Sam supporters haven’t been on my mind since the Mother’s Day Massacre. You might think I was sitting back with smug satisfaction over yet another example of […]

Another Take on Imus

Maybe someone with Don Imus’ haircut shouldn’t be calling other people nappy-headed hos. By now everyone knows how shock jock Don Imus called the Rutgers women’s basketball team nappy-headed hos. And by now, yes, he has gotten what’s coming to him and I couldn’t be happier. This is all magnified with the height of this […]

Ten Thoughts that Never Enter Sam’s Mind (but probably should)

Happy Holidays from the Loss Column

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and all of that. Thanks for making us part of your rotation. Back on Tuesday (probably) with more…

Where Have You Gone, Gary Gait?

From the Examiner…Lack of Interest Doomed Bayhawks Last year was a bad year for Baltimore sports. Maryland was beaten by Manhattan in the NIT, the Ravens looked mildly Oriole-like, and the Orioles made it possible to invent the term “Oriole-like.” However, in 2005, Baltimore’s professional lacrosse team, the Bayhawks, won the Major League Lacrosse title, […]
