Lady Dragon Lolo Jones volunteered information about her virginity on a recent HBO show and the news went immediately viral. Suddenly every blogger and journalist alive had a solution to the poor virgin’s plight and was offering up articles as to who she should sleep with, what she should do to cure her virgin disease and all sorts of other nonsense. Frankly it was disgusting and a bit of a shock to me seeing that many of these articles came from magazines that prided themselves as being “for women”. Look, it isn’t so much that it is none of our business if an older woman (Lolo is 29 yrs. old) hasn’t been deflowered; it is the fact that we now assume that she wants our advice on getting laid. Why is virginity such a bad thing? Is a good looking virgin such a bad thing?… [Read more]

So there are a few weeks left in the NFL Season and you find yourself in front of the couch every Sunday to watch the big game.  To your woman it will seem as if you forgot about her as you disappear for 8+ hours on Sundays (sometimes without even leaving your home).  This isn’t a problem if you are the lucky guy that found a woman who loves football or one that takes the time to have her own fun.  But for many guys this is hardly the case so I have come up with a few tips to keep you in good graces with your woman while getting in your football fix. Introduce her to the game and some of its players:  By doing this you are inviting her to share something that you enjoy (for once), and she will probably start to… [Read more]

It’s funny how timing can tie two separate events. But last week, we saw the re-emergence of not one, but two, pro athletes looking to return to their craft. The return of one, Terrell Owens from an offseason injury, was expected. The return of the other, Allen Iverson from a season abroad, not so much. While a few of the details of their careers are as different as the sports they play, their pro lives have actually been eerily similar. AI’s journey began as a Virginia prep star in both football and basketball, where his bigger-than-life play dwarfed his diminutive stature. After being recruited by John Thompson, he chose to attend Georgetown for hoops, where he garnered Big East Rookie of the Year and two Defensive Player of the Year awards during his two years on campus. He then declared for the 1996 NBA Draft… [Read more]

Those of us that have played or participated in anything competitive know that when all else failed and everyone else bailed there was one person who saw things through to the end: mom. When we were outmatched or outplayed, mom (sometimes embarrassingly) watched on. Maybe it was because she was our ride home (child endangerment charges could be a bitch, I’d guess) or just figured “Hell, I’m here now. No need leaving early.” Either way, she stayed. I remember one year playing on a team that just scoring was victory for us. We were a pathetic cluster of boys imitating a football team at times. During those games, I’d look to the stands hoping that she had been looking away and not seen the last few minutes. Hell, I felt bad for her. But never did I think I’d look up and she’d be walking… [Read more]

Day 105 of the NBA lockout came and went as many of the previous 104 before it had: without any meetings between the NBA and NBPA. But also like many of those previous 104 days, the most significant news was a loose statement made by one of the chief particulars. This time it was the Commish stepping to the mic to offer an outlook thinly veiled in disappointment: if no deal is reached by this upcoming Tuesday, games through Christmas Day could very well be cancelled. That just happens to coincide with a planned meeting of the owners and the players face-to-face. (The one change to previous meeting is that there will be mediation involved in this round of banter, though that guarantees nothing as far as an agreement is concerned.) This of course follows the pattern laid out by the Commish last week that… [Read more]
